Welcome golden retrievers with an open heart & you will be loved unconditionally.
Have fun, bid often and bid high!
Online Auction Begins June 7th!
GBR's annual online auction (in which prior to COVID was held live at the Golden Vintage Dinner) is scheduled to begin at midnight (Pacific Time) on June 7th and will end at midnight on June 12th. The items up for auction have been donated by volunteers, merchants and supporters of Golden Bond Rescue. We greatly thank them for their generosity. You can access the auction now for preview as well as on June 8th for placing your bids by clicking on "GO TO AUCTION" below.
The proceeds from our annual auction sets the stage for the number of dogs we can rescue during the following year. It's pretty basic: the more money we raise, the more dogs we can rescue. Now is not the time to look for bargains! We ask that you bid often and bid high. If items might be a bit beyond what's in your wallet/purse, team up with family and friends to jointly bid.
Special Note: State of Oregon liquor laws will allow the auctioning of wine in a non-profit auction for only one day. The wine in our auction will only be open to bids on June 8th until June 9th. For delivery reasons, only those bidders located in the Portland and Seattle Metro areas may bid.
We want to give a special "Thank You" to those persons and businesses who have donated funds to help cover the cost of running this auction:
Animal Allergy and Ear Clinic
Kristin Gopal Insurance Agency, Inc.
Milner Veterinary Hospital
Mountain Top Insight Consulting, Stacey McLaughlin
Taira-Welch Communications, in honor of Big Bob and DukE
Stranger in a Strange Land by Jeanne Spreen Three days, three weeks, three months. This familiar adage suggests how long it takes for a newly rehomed dog to acclimate to his new environment. While catchy, and a good reminder to give new dogs a break early on, its simplified timeline often gives us false expectations….
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! We are so grateful for our GBR volunteers and their abilities to adapt and change course. This spring, our traveling volunteers did just that when original plans fell through and they had to devise a Plan B. Plan A was to drive to Chicago to rescue 10 golden retrievers…
