Annual Meeting & Volunteer Luncheon!

 April 22 @ 12:00 pm2:00 pm

Woo-hoo (that’s “woof woof” if you’re a canine) – our annual meeting is rolling around! Join GRRIN as we celebrate a great year in rescue!

  • Lunch provided by GRRIN – yum, it’s Mangia Italiana!
  • Family and friendly dogs welcome!
  • Treats for attending dogs donated by Woof & Whiskers!

Yes, we have a lot of exclamation points because we think this is one of our best events of the year. Great company, great food, great dogs, great conversation about dogs, what else can you ask for? (Let’s face it, we’re crazy about our dogs.)

If you’re a volunteer, you deserve a free lunch and a big thank you from our hosting board members. If you just want to hang out as a friend of GRRIN, we’d love to have you (we won’t pressure you to sign up for anything). Please RSVP if you would like to attend by sending a quick email to volunteer@grrin.org.

We’ll also have a very short business meeting:

  • Vote on open board positions
  • Review finance and rescue reports
  • Pre-planning for Gold Rush will be discussed and GRRIN would love to hear your ideas
To recap:
Fun for dogs and people! Bring your Goldens (or any friendly dog on a leash). Lunch will be served.
RSVP 402-330-6680 or volunteer@grrin.org so we can make sure we have enough goodies to eat!
Please provide your name and the number that will be attending.
Nebraska Humane Society, 8929 Fort Street, Omaha

Thank you, Woof & Whiskers!

GRRIN dog Rocky wins award!

Congratulations to Rocky and his fur-parents, Jim and Mary Jane Fitch, who just received the 2018 Nebraska Veterinary Medicine Association’s Animal Hall of Fame award in January! Even more exciting, they visited the State Capitol where Lt. Governor Mike Foley presented a proclamation from Governor Pete Ricketts highlighting March 5, 2018 as Animal Hall of Fame Recognition Day in Nebraska.

Rocky, born with a deformed front paw, was adopted by Jim and Mary Jane in 2014. After an incredible journey to get a prosthetic device for Rocky, they had him certified as an Angel Dog at Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital, where he provides comfort and joy to many patients.
