Spread Some Puppy Love to “Love A Golden”

At the Moonrise, we take pride in being a pet-friendly hotel. We’re always striving to go above and beyond for our four-legged friends, particularly when it comes to the ones that need a little extra love and support! Naturally, when a deserving organization like Love A Golden Rescue comes to us for support, we’re pawsitively thrilled to help!

What Does Love a Golden Do?

Love a Golden is a St. Louis based, all-volunteer group that rescues golden retrievers and golden mixes that are in need of surgery, abandoned by owners or removed from shelters. Many of their rescues are also surrendered by loving but elderly owners who are no longer able to care for them. Dogs that are older or suffering from health complications are often put down if a rescue does not occur, but Love a Golden treats these canines in an alternative way by ensuring they move from foster homes to forever homes.

Many of their rescues require extensive veterinary care before they are ready for adoption. Last year alone they were able to place eighty golden retrievers with loving homes, but vet expenses for these poor pups can really add up! To help fund their cause, they will be hosting a trivia night fundraiser on August 18th. This trivia night will be Love a Golden’s biggest fundraiser to date. With incredible auction items for their silent auction – including a voucher for a night’s stay in a Moonrise St. Louis Walk of Fame Suite – and great raffle prizes for their 50/50 raffle, it’s sure to be a golden night!

How Can You Help?

Want to help these pretty pooches out too? It’s simple – and fun! Just get a team together and get a table at the trivia night. Over half have already been sold, so get your group’s while you can. If you can’t attend, consider a business or personal table sponsorship. Personal sponsorships can be made in memory of a dog that holds a special spot in your heart; business sponsorships showcase your own organization’s support for a good cause. Or, you can always lend a hand by donating a gift certificate or raffle basket to help make this event as pawsome as pawsible!

Love a Gold Rescue is always accepting volunteersfoster homes and foster buddies and donations. Best of all, if you’ve got room in your heart and your home for a new family member, you can adopt one of their available pups. They’ll always be welcome for a visit at our pet loving boutique hotel!
