Rescue a dog,  Foster a dog, Don't buy a dog from a Puppy Mill!!!
A rescue volunteer created this wonderful video about  how many dogs there are in shelters across the US, and encouraging people to foster or rescue a shelter dog to show how happy families become when these dogs  find a loving new home. 

NGRR encourages getting your new dog from a shelter, a breed rescue group (like NGRR) or a reputable breeder.  We ask you not to buy dogs in pet stores or from backyard brokers becasue there is a reasonable chance that they came from puppy mills, where the dogs are raised in abominal conditions at the lowest cost.   The retail pet stores and puppy brokers, then offer them to unsuspecting buyers who think they are getting a healthy, pure bred dog at a bargain price.   Buying from pet stores or backyard brokers only encourages the puppy mills to breed more dogs.

     Hi, everybody. My name is Otto. I was born in Taiwan and sometime after my 7th birthday, I was dumped onto the street in Taiwan. Then I was captured and taken to a shelter. People don’t go to shelters to adopt a middle-aged boy like me so I needed to hang out there for 3 months.

     In March, a wonderful lady with Taiwan PawPrint Dog Society (TPPDS) pulled me out of the shelter. I was very underweight with my ribs showing and it turned out I was Heartworm positive by the time I left the shelter. It was not a happy place.

     I was dirty and skinny when I got to TPPDS. There they gave me a nice bowl of good tasting food and a warm bubble bath. Then I got shaved and it felt so good. These tasty bowls of food continued coming day after day. I started gaining weight and became healthy enough to start and complete my heartworm treatment.

     I loved the other dogs there. We shared toys and played and had lots of fun. I felt like a puppy again.

     Around the beginning of June, my brothers and sisters and I started receiving special treatment. We went to the Vet and the Vet said, “All healthy and ready to go.” Go where? We went to the groomer and she said “They’re ready to go.” Go where? Then all eleven of us were loaded into 2 vans and went to a great big place. They called it an airport. My foster Mom and Dad were crying and kissing us all good-bye. “You’re ready to go.” Go where?

     “You’re going to San Francisco in the USA,” they said. We took a 6500 mile airplane ride to find a loving, forever family.

     On June 13th my brothers and sisters and I landed at the SFO airport. We met nice people there. I got to go home with my Foster Mom and Dad and meet my Golden foster sister and two Golden foster brothers.

     The next day my Foster Mom and Dad took me to the Vet because my ears smelled funny and they were so itchy I just had to keep scratching them. The Vet said my ears are badly infected. I will need special medical care to help them heal.

     Otto will be sharing a weekly update about his progress in the USA and if you are interested in helping support NGRR in bringing more loving, wonderful Goldens, like Otto, over from Taiwan, please memo your donation to “Otto’s Fund.”

 Fosters are our most important people. Fosters take in surrendered dogs who need a safe home right away, they make sure vet visits and shots are done, and other wise care for the dog as if it were their own while in their custody.  Our fosters are compassionate, giving people, willing to invest their time and talent to help a dog in need.

If you are interested in becoming an NGRR foster, see our online foster application . One of our members will contact you and arrange an interview.
