Critical care dogs are rescued Goldens that require specialized, emergency medical care, or are identified as unadoptable due to a terminal illness, incapacitation, or aggressive behavior discovered after the dog has been rescued. For the latter, GRRAND cares for these dogs with the help of experienced foster families who provide needed medication, comfort, and love until they pass over the Rainbow Bridge. As you can imagine, care for these dogs, including vet care and medications, can be quite costly.
We’ve established a fund for our critical care dogs and wish to highlight their stories on this page. As you read through these difficult stories, please consider donating to the Critical Care Fund. With your help and the dedication of our experienced foster families, we hope to create a compassionate atmosphere for each dog that would otherwise experience a sad ending. The donation form is at the bottom of this page.

UPDATE ON LOLA:
Lola’s vet specialist said the removal of her large tumor may give her increased quality time, so the decision was made to remove the tumor. A portion of the excision was sent for testing to determine if the tumor is cancerous. The surgery was extremely difficult and at times the vet was concerned that she would not survive. Thanks to the surgeon’s great hands and many prayers she survived and is now recovering with her loving foster family.
Lola’s surgery was quite expensive and GRRAND is looking for donations to offset that cost. Thank you so much for your support!
