Goldstock is very special to us all. Friends and fun and memories.
It may seem obvious, but we all need to remember the reason for this gathering. Rescue for our beloved breed. Not all goldens are as well loved as the ones attending. Many enter rescue in dire straits, with many medical issues. The rescues take them in no matter what care they need. No matter the expense.
The rescues that attend depend on this weekend for the majority of the funds they raise all year. As you are having fun and spending time at the lake, and competing in the Olympics and partaking in Goldstock merriment - PLEASE remember the reason for the weekend.
- Visit the rescue booths in the activity center.
- Buy something from each rescue.
- Raffles are everywhere! Buy tickets!! Someone will get your prize to you if you're not staying til Sunday.
- Enter the Olympics
- Vote for Sweetest dog
Even if you're only coming up for the day - please please support the rescues that make this weekend possible.
