A Note from the Executive Director of Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue
The number seven is pretty special. Consider the following:
· 7 holy temples
· 7 ancient planets
· 7 dwarfs
· 7 deadly sins
· 7 seas
· 7th son of a 7th son will be gifted
· 7 days of the week
· 7 wonders of the world
And now Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue still has the seven still remaining of the "NC 20." Sadly, that number is not zero. It's been nearly 16 weeks since we rescued them from certain death in North Carolina.
We'll bid them good-bye on June 30. We have no choice. We've tried. We've begged. We've pleaded. We simply can't understand why any of these seven wonderful dogs have not been able to find homes with our supporters, friends of our supporters or those who follow us via social media.
We are now reducing the adoption fee for any of the seven to $250. That fee represents a serious financial loss for us, but we cannot hold them any longer, continuing to strain our resources. They are all fully vetted, and everything they needed has been done.
At the end of this month, in just two weeks, we must turn Alice, Lua, Linus, Caroline, Fonzi, Honey and Reuben over to a rescue in upstate New York. It was always our plan to do this for the Golden mixes that were part of that incredible rescue, and we have delayed our decision on several occasions, always hoping that folks in our area would step forward and share their lives with these special dogs.
It's sad for our staff and those who spent their time and energy, risking injury, on the rescue to be unable to see the process come full circle... to see these dogs go home with loving families the way their canine siblings did. We simply have no choice and must now implement the original plan.
One last time, if you or anyone you know has it in their hearts to provide a fur-ever home for one of these special dogs, now is the time to contact us.
