Annual Meeting & Volunteer Luncheon!

Thanks for coming! Oh my dog, over 40 friends of GRRIN joined us with their favorite Golden Retrievers for an awesome lunch and informative meeting. Board members were voted in, our finances are healthy (translation: we can do great things for foster dogs!), and our rescue process is running smoothly.

One of the challenges we are facing this year is that GRRIN is not getting calls from people who need help re-homing their dogs. The board has worked tirelessly to get our group’s mission out to the public, but sometimes word of mouth is the best way to share GRRIN’s 26-year devotion to helping dogs in need. Please let others know about our mission to find dogs permanent new homes, whether it’s talking to your work buddies and neighbors or mentioning GRRIN on Facebook or Twitter (@GRRINebraska). If you know someone that needs help, they can send an email to or call 402-330-6680.

The other topic of business was planning for our annual celebration, Gold Rush. This year’s event takes place on Sunday, October 7th, at the Offutt Base Lake Park. Please send an email to if you’d like to offer ideas, volunteer or make a donation.

Keep an eye on our website calendar so you don’t miss a single gathering in 2018. We don’t always have foster dogs at meet and greets, but we welcome the opportunity to chat with you and meet your favorite canine.

Thank you again for supporting GRRIN year-round – we couldn’t do it without you!



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

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 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!
