View 2017GRRAND Affair Pictures!

We can’t thank everyone enough for attending the 2017 GRRAND Affair sponsored by the Sam Swope Family Foundation!  We had a great time at our new venue, the Frazier History Museum, and most importantly, we raised money to keep doing what we do for our Goldens and other needy dogs!

We want to thank all volunteers who helped us make this event a roaring success. And we especially want to recognize all our amazing GRRAND Affair sponsors and in-kind donors. Without your contributions and financial support, we simply could not continue our rescue work.  Take a peek at some of the photos taken by our photographers during the event and share your photos with us.  Email them to, and we will share them on GRRAND’s Facebook page.  We look forward to seeing you next year!
