In 2013, thanks to the generous support of our donors and members, Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue (DVGRR) was able to purchase the adjacent property in order to create The Lynne Glennon Sanctuary for Senior Goldens and Puppy Mill Survivors. The Sanctuary is designed to house relinquished senior Goldens, Labrador Retrievers, Goldendoodles, and Labradoodles as well as those rescued from puppy mills.
Greater numbers of senior dogs are finding their way to DVGRR, and these dogs have typically only known life in a home. Replicating a home-like atmosphere helps us better prepare them for adoption with loving families or provide permanent hospice care as needed. Plus, we continue to rescue dogs from the horrors of life in a puppy mill. These survivors require extensive rehabilitation which is provided through DVGRR’s Project Home Life, and the Sanctuary lets us expand that effort.
This Sanctuary also created an opportunity for DVGRR to create a Golden partnership.
