The CDC suspension on dogs entering the US from "high-risk" rabies countries has gone into effect July 14, 2021. SEVA GRREAT is actively involved with the non-profit rescues across the country to request an exemption from the suspension. A letter to the CDC was organized by our national representative and signed by over 50 non-profit rescues. The exemption request is for those non-profits who obtain the appropriate permits issued by USDA-APHIS to bring the dogs into the US. Animal Wellness Action is the group we are working with to represent us in Washington and with the CDC. We are also using this letter to explain to members of the Senate and House what the issue is and why the requested exemption will address the concerns of the CDC. While we know a response will not come quickly, initial conversations with the CDC indicate they may be open to discussing this requested exemption.
We will be following the very closely and will provide updates via our website and social media as we get them.
Congratulations to our calendar finalists! Now it's your turn to decide who should be featured in our annual Calendar! Scroll through all of our finalists and vote for your favorite photo(s). They are listed in no particular order. To vote, use the "Vote" button under each photo. Each "vote" is a $1.00 donation to SEVA GRREAT and you may vote as many times as you like. For example, a $10.00 donation equals 10 votes for the dog(s) of your choice. You can vote for several dogs if you like; simply add them to your cart.
Voting ends at midnight on August 1, 2021. The 13 photos with the most votes will receive a monthly feature and the top vote-getter will be on the cover of the calendar. This calendar contest is a fundraiser, and your votes directly support rescued golden retrievers in our program, helping ensure they find wonderful forever homes (and hopefully featured in a future SEVA GRREAT calendar)! Vote early and vote often! We look forward to finding out which Goldens will be our 12 monthly features and which Golden you choose will be on the calendar cover!
Some people are tempted to shave their golden retrievers in the summer. After all, that fur "coat" must be warm, right? Won't they feel better without it? This blog post explains the function of the fur and why shaving is not a good idea. Read here: https://goldenretrieverhealth.blogspot.com/2021/05/dont-shave-that-golden.html
