Gold Ribbon Rescue is an all volunteer, nonprofit organization. Our main function is to provide a network for sheltering, rehabilitation and placing Goldens into permanent homes in Central Texas. We also provide education on responsible dog ownership.


Our Challenge Has Been Challenged...

Paul and Gregg Parks-Biba were extremely touched by the first gift of $500 from Jim and Coralie Pledger. So now, Paul and Gregg are committing a $500 matching gift for the next 50 people who donate $10 each. Go for the Gold and let's meet the challenge!

Here's a little insight to what it's all about:

  A handsome, friendly adolescent born with badly malformed hips… a fluffy little stray, just a baby at 10 weeks, loving but listless from the dreaded parvovirus… a senior “train wreck” whose shelter pictures are almost too painful too look at… a mature gentleman and a true ambassador for the breed, suffering from seizure disorder and mast cell cancer…

 These are just some of the faces of the almost 90 Golden Retrievers Gold Ribbon Rescue has rescued year to date. GRR Goldens are young and old, boys and girls, shelter dogs and family pets, husky and dainty, red and blonde. What brings them all together? In too many cases it's health issues that require significant medical expense—major surgeries, repeated lab tests and blood draws, hospitalization and IV antibiotics, complicated diagnostics, and X-ray and ultrasound imaging. As we figure out each dog’s problem and devise a plan of action, the costs skyrocket. 

 At GRR, one of our firmest principles is this: We will never turn down a dog for health reasons and we will always be a haven for those who need help the most . But now more than ever, we desperately need YOUR help to continue our mission. And your help means so much! You have the chance to make one Golden after another feel better (maybe better than he or she ever has), and the hope of a happy-ever-after. For just half of 2015, GRR's dog expenses have been $51,788.00.  Some of the medical expenses Gold Ribbon Rescue incurs are:


$27.30 to cover the veterinary exam for a Golden Retriever we rescue

$37.20 to cover the vaccinations for a Golden Retriever we rescue

$147.29 to cover the spaying / neutering for a Golden Retriever we rescue

$410.74 to cover the cost of heart worm treatment for a Golden Retriever we rescue


Please help us continue to help every Golden who needs an extra assist into a brand new life by supporting our cause. Please take the Gold Ribbon Rescue $5.00 challenge. Every amount of money matters.


Thank you from all of us at GRR—including, of course our 2015 (89, YTD) Goldens, and counting!
