If you guessed a brick, you are correct. No doubt you know about the elements used to make brick but perhaps the frog part stumped you. Just so you know, for some unknown reason the indentations on a brick are called “frogs.”
Speaking of bricks, many of you know the future for GRRAND includes an incredible new facility to house our rescued dogs. Plans also include a walking trail that can be utilized for dogs and their walkers. It’s going to be a breathtaking feature of the property and we invite you to be a part of its history by purchasing an inscribed brick to be placed along the trail.
This fundraiser will be used to offset costs for the project and fundraise for our overall rescue mission. Your brick will be featured along the trail to inspire all who venture down its path.
For more information and to purchase your brick, please visit the Fundraising Brick site.

ADOPT A SHELTER DOG MONTH
October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, which means it’s the perfect opportunity to help homeless animals in shelters all across America find loving, happy homes. While we are trying to figure out how to celebrate Halloween in this historic year, let’s also consider ways to help the millions of dogs who are in shelters.
If you wonder how you can help, have a look at the options below:
- Support your favorite shelter or rescue organization by donating some of the money you would have spent on Halloween decorations, costumes, and candy this year.
- Donate items needed by shelters to house and care for their dogs.
- Spread the word about the incredible benefits of adopting shelter/rescued dogs.
- Consider adopting your own shelter/rescued dog.
Of course you can support any shelter or rescue group but please consider GRRAND in your planning. If you wish to donate items for our dogs please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or donate to GRRAND using the link below.
As always, thank you for your support. Let’s save those dogs!
