Bentley’s Fundbentley

FOR CARE OF GOLDENS THAT ARE UNADOPTABLE
DUE TO AGE/MEDICAL CONDITIONS

Bentley’s Fund was established in May 2010 to care for golden retrievers who enjoy a good quality of life but are unadoptable due to age and/or medical condition(s). Originally knows as the Long Term Care Fund, it was renamed in January 2013 in memory of Bentley, a four month old puppy born with three heart defects that came to As Good as Gold in March 2012. Initially given only a few months to live, Bentley survived past his first birthday and enjoyed a happy life with his foster family. His story touched the lives of many while in Long Term Foster Care. Your secure online donation to Bentley’s Fund will help ensure that unadoptable goldens continue to receive excellent and appropriate medical care while living in a loving foster home.
