We have a running joke at Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue: “Not a Golden!” While our mission states that we help Goldens and Golden mixes, I’m sure you’ve seen in this blog, that “Not a Golden!” can include just a little bit more.
Some are what we call “Fool’s Gold” –
And some are not gold at all!
Sometimes they come paired with a Golden that has been surrendered; Sometimes our volunteers just can’t bear to leave them in a shelter.
When we have the capacity, we’re happy to extend our support to others in need.
“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” ~Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama
Our kindness occasionally extends beyond canines. These recently abandoned kittens that we are trying to find homes for certainly fit the bill. Kitten, anyone?
But these two?
Definitely, “Not a Golden!” You just never know what treasures you will come across when you open up your heart.
“Open your heart — open it wide; someone is standing outside. ~ Mary Engelbreit
