Everybody Needs a Buddy Sometime!

So many people love our dogs and would like to adopt them, but for various reasons they are unable.  We have come up with a program for those people who can become one of our many foster dogs’ “Buddy” until they get adopted. The Buddy Program allows you to provide support for a specific foster dog that you have seen on our Web site that touches your heart.  

A Buddy is a special person who provides a donation of money, food or supplies for a GSRNE dog while they are in foster care to help him/her get the fresh start they deserve!  Every cent given of your generous donation will go toward the dog’s vet care, food and any other necessity.  Since GSRNE is a 501(c)(3) corporation, your donation is tax deductible.

Unfortunately, our adoption fees and fundraisers do not cover the costs for most of our dogs in the program, so won’t you consider being a Buddy to one or more of our deserving dogs?  Being a Buddy is a simple thing to do.  You may pick a dog to sponsor for any of the following and donate securely through Paypal by clicking this button:

or send a check to:

GSRNE, Buddy Dog Program, P.O. Box 299, Wayland, MA  01778 

After your donation using Paypal, you’ll be redirected to a page where you’ll have a chance to email us which foster dog you are sponsoring.   If you send your donation by mail to the P.O. Box, please provide us with your email address, contact information, and the dog that you would like to be your buddy.
