Tree of Hope 2013

Gold Ribbon Rescue - 2013 Tree of Hope

Celebrate the Season

Help Goldens in Need

We've finished the 2013 Tree of Hope --- our online holiday tree that your donation decorates with ornaments and presents.

This year, through your generosity, our 2013 Tree of Hope donations totaled $7,000 --- all of which went towards our Extraordinary Golden Fund (EGF).

Our online holiday tree is a wonderful way to pay honor to a family member (two- or four-legged), celebrate a birthday or anniversary or remember the passing of a loved family member. It is guaranteed to fill your heart with Christmas spirit, as you return again and again to read the warm wishes and tributes. The Tree of Hope a great way to help celebrate the holiday season.

Happy holidays to you and your family. Thank you for supporting our goldens.
