If you have a Golden or plan to bring one into your home, you ought to know about the more common genetic issues that might reduce the high quality or duration of your own Golden Retriever's existence.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
GIVE LOCAL 757 was a GRREAT success!!
Between online donations and prizes (checks are still being tallied), you helped raise over $10,000. Because of your generous donations, SEVA GRREAT also won:
- $1000 for the LANGLEY FEDERAL CREDIT UNION 50/50 prize (1 of the first 5 organizations with 50 donations of $50 or more)
- $757 for the BEST in SHOW prize (highest number of unique donations in the Animal category)
Despite the crazy technical difficulties, Give Local 757 was a huge success!! Thank you for your patience and all of the donations. When we decided to participate, we had no idea what to expect. We were competing with 223 non-profits including 15 in the Animal category. By our calculation, we finished 10th in total monies raised and 7th in the number of unique donations. We were at the top of the leader board both days. It was so exciting.
We not only met, but grreatly exceeded, our goal of $5000.
One of our Board members uses the tag line... "It takes a village to rescue a golden." You are our village.
