As Good as Gold Golden Retriever Rescue announces A Golden Ball, our largest fundraiser of the year, will take place at Medinah Shrine Center on Saturday, June 10 beginning at 5 p.m.
Melody was born as a stray at a cement recycling factory and so scared that the workers had to put a tranquilizer in her food so she could be rescued.
For over eight months her foster family worked to ease her fears; Melody was so afraid of anything new that it would be easier to list the things that did NOT terrify her!
Your support allowed As Good as Gold to give Melody the life she deserved. With love, patience, and a detailed plan from our veterinary behaviorist, Melody’s confidence grew. And, our hard work paid off! Last month Melody was adopted! Just in time for the holidays.
See our donation options to learn how you can help the many dogs we rescue just like Melody!
The rescue world has lost a powerful force and members of As Good as Gold mourn the passing of our beloved leader and Executive Director, Robin Sweeney. Robin was one of the founding members of As Good as Gold, an Illinois non-profit golden retriever rescue organization.
