Fido Fashion Show

Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue, Inc. is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of golden retrievers in need.  The organization advocates responsible pet ownership, community education and protection of all dogs. While their focus is primarily on the eastern half of NC, they accept any golden retriever into their program – regardless of age or medical condition.  They help families who can no longer care for their goldens by offering an opportunity to surrender their dogs – knowing that a final outcome is happy and includes a new, loving home.  They also partner with shelters to save strays and assure goldens are not euthanized because no one wants them. They are an all volunteer organization and cannot continue their work without foster homes, transporters, and fundraisers. Join them daily on the Fashion and Entertainment Stage for the Fido Fashion Show - Goldens on the Runway.
