Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies: Rescue U Renovation Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

Covering for our outside kennels.

We are in the process of completing the project. Our volunteer engineer was on his two-week honeymoon during September. We felt that he was the very best candidate for this project. As there are many weather factors and water drainage factors associated with the project, we waited for his talents. Options were discussed with this gentleman, drawings with specifications were created and a professional contractor will be utilized for the outcome.

How many pets did this grant help?

There are 12 outside kennels utilized daily by our rescue dogs.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

This will be particularly important for our dogs in rehab, as they will be able to access the outside part of the kennels to relieve themselves without traveling through mud or lots of ice and snow. The safety factor is huge, as we had a visiting mountain lion in the past. For these reasons, we wanted the very best candidate to engineer the project so that it would be structurally sound. We are so grateful that these concerns will no longer be with us in the near future due to this grant. The photo shows Stella, a great Pyreenes/golden retriever mix (known for protection), on the left. She alerted us to the mountain lion’s visit.
