GBR Has A New Van!
Several months ago, a long time supporter of Golden Bond Rescue anonymously donated in honor of her recently deceased sister funds for the specific purpose of purchasing a new Ford Transit 250 XL van. The van was ordered and finally arrived from Suburban Ford in late December, 2017. After the purchase of the van, there was enough money left over to “upfit” the inside. We added a 3-person bench seat, a circulation fan and two shelves. The van is now able to transport up to 5 volunteers and as many as 12 dogs in crates (depending on the size of the crates). All the dogs featured on the outside of the van are adopted GBR goldens. The painting was done by John Stahr of Stahr Design. These dog pictures are not “wrap around” art, Folks.Â They are original pieces of art, hand painted by John!
If you haven’t seen the van yet, come to our Annual Meeting (see above) and get a chance to look closely at the featured dogs and take a look inside. We think you’ll be as excited as we are!
Donations Still Accepted
Even though we exceeded our fundraiser goal, we will still accept donations.Â The “supply” of local goldens needing rescue as well as those in China and South Korea appears to be endless. If you haven’t read about our work in China, please scroll down and let Ike lead you through our China Connection Project>

GBR Launches Huge Fundraiser
Hey, there! You donâ€™t know me so I guess the proper thing to do is to introduce myself. My name is Ike and Iâ€™m a two-year old male golden retriever. Youâ€™re probably thinking, â€śWhatâ€™s so special about him that he gets center stage on GBRâ€™s web page?â€ť Well, Iâ€™m actually in China and Iâ€™m one of the 51 goldens GBR has rescued and wants to bring over to the USA. They say there are forever homes in the U.S. for each one of us. I wonder what my family is like.
Since this is the largest fundraiser GBR has ever attempted AND the greatest number of goldens they have ever rescued at one time, GBR thought I would be the best spokes-dog for the job. After all, I am one of the rescued goldens. Youâ€™ll learn how I became a slaughterhouse survivor, but I have to warn you – it isnâ€™t a pretty story.
GBR hopes after reading all about me and the 50 other rescued goldens, you will help bring us over to the USA by donating. All funds donated will go into a special account established for this fundraiser. In fact, if you want to donate now just use the Donate Now button located in the upper right corner of this page.
You can keep track of how much has been donated by coming back to this page. The Fundraiser Goal Thermometer will be updated at least once a day.
Letâ€™s get started. We have a lot to cover and I donâ€™t want to miss out on a meal. Stay close and donâ€™t wander off!Â Follow meâ€¦
