Groundbreaking for GRRAND/ Pet Station Country Club Venture






GRRAND Announces a New Partnership with The Pet Station

GRRAND is embarking on a wonderful, mutually beneficial partnership venture with The Pet Station Country Club.  After months of planning, GRRAND has agreed to lease the GRRAND Central Station kennel property to The Pet Station Country Club.  In exchange, they will build a beautiful new facility and their staff will house and maintain the care of our rescue dogs.

To learn more about this incredible opportunity, we invite you to watch this video featuring GRRAND’s president, Nina Scott, and Rebecca Blackburn, Co-Owner of the Pet Station Country Club.  Stay tuned for more information as this venture continues to evolve!

Please help GRRAND make a difference for dogs destined for the cruel Asian dog meat trade.

GRRAND is embarking on another international rescue effort to save dogs in Asia that are victims of a horrible practice of selling and consuming dog meat.  We need your help.  Please click here for more information and donation opportunities.  Warning:  The information on the lower portion of the Asian dog meat trade page is difficult to read and the pictures are very disturbing.
