There are many hundreds of Golden Retreivers languishing in China. Their lives are definitely in danger. Golden Rescue South Florida cannot stand by and do nothing.
We are a small rescue but we have big dreams, amazing followers and volunteers. We have worked out the details. First, they cannot fly into Florida. They will arrive in New York at JFK airport. We will probably fly two people up and rent a truck large enough to transport 20 dogs back to Florida. (We are currently contacting rescues in the Northeast to see if they want to be a part of this.
So, the first major step is to collect the money. It will cost us $2,400 per dog and just to get them to New York. That DOES include their vaccines and sterilization. Then we will be paying airfare and a truck rental. Next, we need to have an iron clad of commitments from people who want to adopt. We will be posting pictures of the dogs that are coming.
For those of you that don't want to adopt but just want to help, your donations mean everything to us.
As always, you will need to be approved by the rescue and we will still decide what are the best matches for each family and dog. With the Puerto Rico dogs it's amazing how the "right" family chooses the "right" dog with a picture. It's amazing just how people "know" their dogs in a heartbeat. We will be taking a deposit from each potential adopter.
