Welcome to GRRAND!

2022 GRRAND Rescue Calendar Photo Contest

July 1, 2021  through August 2, 2021
A Fun and Easy Way to Help GRRAND!
Welcome to our 3rd Photo Contest Fundraiser!


Who has the fairest GRRAND dog of all? Of course, it is your GRRAND Dog! Here is your chance to show off your gorgeous GRRAND dog to the world. Enter your GRRAND dog’s picture here ($10 registration fee) and then encourage voting for $1 from your family, friends and social media followers. The photo with the most votes at the end of the voting phase will pick the month they would like to have the dog featured and two tickets to the GRRAND Affair scheduled for November 12, 2021. The next 11 photos with the most votes will each receive a monthly spread. Each winner has a chance to tell their GRRAND dog’s story.

Have a look at the 2021 calendar pictures submitted for last year’s contest to spark some ideas!

Reserve a Day to Honor your Pet!

Want a guaranteed spot in the calendar? Reserve a day to honor your pet. Your pet’s photo will appear on the day of your choice. ­Just choose your favorite photo and then choose the day and pay! First come first served! Once a date has been reserved, it will no longer be available. Each day is $15. Submit your photo and $15 donation here.

Calendar Pre-Order

Calendars make excellent holiday gifts! You will be able to pre-order calendars at a reduced cost. Pre-order calendars here.  Calendars will also be available for purchase from our website after the contest but the cost will be $20 due to our shipping costs.

This is the third year running this fundraiser. Here are some tips:

  • Read the Contest Rules for information regarding photo requirements. Make sure your photos are of high enough quality to reproduce well.
  • The more you communicate your participation in the contest (i.e. at work, with friends, via social media), the better chances you have to win one of the top spots, and the more GRRAND will benefit. Votes are $1.
  • No people in the photos, please. We want to protect their privacy.
  • It’s not over until it is over. The battle for the calendar spots can go to the very last minute of the contest. Our contest will close at 9 p.m. EST on 8/2/2021.
  • People can vote as often as they like, and votes will display on the contest web page as they come in.
  • In case of a tie, the entry date and time will be used as the tie breaker.

The goal is to raise $10,000 to help GRRAND continue their efforts to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome wonderful GRRAND dogs.

Bolt Needs A Home

Age:4 years
Breed:Lab Mix
Intake date:11/04/2019
Post date:5/18/2021
Bolt is READY for his FOREVER family!!!
    Meet Bolt! Bolt is a sweet and easy going, 3-4-year old lab mix, has been with a GRRAND foster for 2 years, is a textbook rescue story, and is so ready to find his forever home!

    While not a Golden Retriever, GRRAND could not let this good boy be forgotten… Bolt came to us in a starved, abused condition, and he had some health and skin issues that GRRAND vets have taken care of. Bolt needed ear surgery and significant veterinarian care was required, but he is fully recovered and now back in excellent health! His ear infection required the removal of one eardrum and he is feeling SO much better now! As far as his skin issues, GRRAND is working to find the best way to manage his allergies and have found daily allergy pills and a bi-weekly injection are keeping his coat beautiful and healthy, but they are still working on other options.

    Bolt is wonderfully warm, and people friendly (of all ages), but due to him being considered a flight risk, he will need a home with an above ground fenced yard and a home with no kids under the age of 10. He is completely house and crate trained and rides well in the car, and likes to snuggle next to his person in the bed too!

    Bolt has a high prey drive so he can not go to a home with cats or dogs. He is most happy getting all of his people’s love and attention so being the only dog is best for him!

    We recommend experienced dog owners for Bolt who are willing to have the time and patience to work with him while getting adjusted. He is a super deserving boy and we just know there is a great family out there that is just perfect for Bolt!! If you think you are the ones, please fill out an app at GRRAND.org
