Join EGRR and EGRC As We Walk to Help Find a Cure for Canine Cancer
On Sunday, January 25, 2015, Everglades Golden Retriever Rescue and our sister organization, Everglades Golden Retriever Club, will again join forces to walk in the Morris Animal Foundation’s fourth K-9 Cancer Walk in Tradewinds Park, Coconut Creek. In 2014, our team had a very successful walk, and we were declared the team with the most members. With your help, we expect to have an even larger, more spirited team, and to amass more donations, to help fight the surge that is killing our beautiful, sweet Goldens.
Monies raised at the K9 Cancer Walk will go toward:
- Providing new treatments for dogs suffering from cancer
- Developing prevention strategies
- Training new researchers who will help find preventions, treatments and ultimately a cure

If you are unable to participate in the walk, but would like to be counted as a team member, you can join our team as a “Sit. Stay” member.

Riley and Rascal came to EGRR from an unfortunate situation. They were owned by a gentleman during the course of his first marriage. When that marriage was dissolved they stayed in his loving care. He later remarried and the family now consisted of his Goldens, 2 Pomeranians and a young child. As time passed, a new baby joined the family, and you guessed it, Riley and Rascal had become personae non gratis.
They were delegated to an isolated room, to keep them away from the baby who was now crawling. We were told that they were jealous of the baby and marked their territory – the room where they were kept. They were also not good with the little dogs. Despite this they were described as being great family dogs and very sweet. The wife knew very little about their vet history, and referred us to her husband. A conversation with him revealed how much he really loved these dogs, but he was not going to fight his wife on this issue.
We agree – these are the sweetest dogs you every want to meet. They did not receive proper vet care and had an assortment of minor issues that have since been resolved. Riley’s coat was a matted mess and she had to be shaved. Rascal had to be neutered and then he made a mess of his incision. They are both grossly overweight, and are on a special diet to speed their weight loss. In spite of them being so fat, they are active and love to run and play ball.
They are ready to go to a foster or foster-to-adopt home, but they must be kept together because they are extremely bonded. If you would like to meet this delightful pair, contact EGRR. We will be glad to make the introductions.
