Golden Opportunities at Homeward Bound

This year almost 1,000 Golden Retrievers will arrive on the doorstep of California’s Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue & Sanctuary. Sadly, many are refugees from the foreclosure crisis and some are too old or too sick to be adopted out.

Founded by Jody and Mike Jones, Homeward Bound is committed to helping dogs, regardless of age or health condition. This wonderful organization takes all of them in and an amazing army of volunteers sees to their needs. They are hosting an event this Saturday to show off some of the dogs and raise money to pay the thousands of dollars in vet and care costs. You can read more about the “Kibble & Bids” here.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The foreclosure crisis has increased the number of available dogs and the group is holding its first ever “Newshound of The Year” to increase awareness and introduce the public to some of their top dogs up for adoption.
