Tales of Gold

2010 Annual Survey

Annual Survey Feedback

Before getting into the survey feedback, we would like to thank Eileen McFadden for her 11 dedicated years as Adoption Coordinator (AC).  So many of the dogs our adopters told us about were placed due to her hard work and wonderful match making over the years.  Eileen, you are a big part of why this rescue has been so successful and thank you again for your service as AC. 

We also sometimes forget to stop and say thank you to our incredible team of volunteers who have helped so many Goldens reach their forever homes.  Without each and every one of them we would not be able to rescue this wonderful breed of dogs that each of us holds close to our hearts.

Finally, to all of the foster homes, a huge THANK YOU for giving these Goldens your love and devoting your time in helping them to get to their forever homes. Many of the surveys mentioned how great our foster families were.  You are the core of this rescue.
