Please join Gold Ribbon Rescue for its Annual Membership Meeting and Heart Healthy Swimfest.
This year we are combining the Annual Membership Meeting with the Heart Healthy Swimfest to raise funds, as well as awareness, to battle the important issue of heart health for goldens. Please join Gold Ribbon Rescue for a fun-filled time as the dogs romp in The Quarry while the humans enjoy some cold drinks, snacks and a little education.
The Quarry at Hyde Park Baptist Church

A heart worm positve dog is a very real challenge that we face every week.
- GRR currently has 12 dogs that are HW postive and are in the process of being treated or are about to begin heart worm treatment.
- GRR spends $2000.00 + per year on heart worm prevention.
- GRR treats 25+ dogs a year that come in testing postive for heart worms at an average cost of $400.00+ per dog.
Dr Ron Stried, DVM will be providing us with some valuable education on this topic.
We look forward to seeing you there. Visit www.hpbc.org for more information on the location.
