April Charity Spotlight on Arizona Golden Retriever Connection

By 4Knines Staff. | Giving Back

Rescue dogs aren't broken, they've simply experienced more life than other dogs.

April Charity Spotlight on Arizona Golden Retriever Connection If they were human, we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write, the ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage. Don't pity a rescue dog. Adopt One. And be proud to have their greatness by your side. Founded in October 2001, Arizona Golden Retriever Connection is an all-volunteer, non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to finding safe, loving, and permanent homes for unwanted Golden Retrievers in Arizona. Arizona Golden Retriever Connection is a Golden Retriever Rescue Organization in Phoenix AZ. Three characteristics make AZGRC unique among animal rescue organizations: 1. The passion, commitment and energy of their membership and leadership. Countless volunteer hours fuel this organization and make it possible to save shelter dogs and owner turn ins from euthanasia. 2. Their commitment to the perfect match. They are foster-based. Their goal is to minimize the number of times a dog is moved so they spend more time and attention on pairing dogs with the best forever home. 3. Their focus on the future. AZGRC is always preparing itself for the next rescue by recruiting fosters, checking the shelters, updating policies and preparing our organization for a stable and healthy financial future.

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE GOLDENS

April Charity Spotlight on Arizona Golden Retriever ConnectionAZGRC also works hard to share the joy of sharing life with a Golden. Golden Retrievers give back to their community by being active as therapy dogs, search and rescue dogs, assistance dogs for the physically or mentally impaired and more. AZGRC's aim is to participate in a variety of activities that help showcase the ways that Goldens give back to the communities. They are also committed to taking a lead in raising awareness about responsible pet ownership for all pet owners, not just our members. The Goldens that are rescued are all taken to one of the veterinary partners for a complete checkup. Each dog is vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed or neutered before placed with adoptive families. AZGRC believes in responsible pet ownership and they practice what they preach. AZGRC adheres to a rigorous screening process to ensure that they do not have to move dogs from home to home. Some of the items they will screen include:
  • Prior vet history
  • Homes free from hazards or dangers
  • Foster/Adopt families who are aware of the breed's most common characteristics
  • Ability to care for the dogs while on vacation or travel, etc...
AZGRC talks with all members of the family to make sure they are all comfortable with the Golden, and the Golden is comfortable with them. They also follow up on a regular basis to make sure that the comfort level remains. As with all nonprofits, Arizona Golden Retriever Connection relies on the kindness of volunteers and the generosity of donors. Each month, 4Knines selects a worthy organization to "SPOTLIGHT," and we hope you will join us in supporting AZGRC with your donation. There are many other ways to help including volunteering, sponsorship and fostering.

EXCELLENT SEAT COVER

We liked the first cover so much that a few days later we purchased a second one. The cover installs very, very easily, fits and covers the rear seat and the back of the front seats of our Subaru Tribeca perfectly, has flaps that cover the door-side edges of the rear seat, and stays perfectly in place. Spilled or tracked water beads up on the material and can be easily wiped off. At first our dog did tend to slide just a little on the new cover, but he soon learned to stand, sit, and lay just as well as he did before on the uncovered seat. The hammock portion seems like it might provide some little bit of protection in a sudden stop (our guy will chew apart any "doggie seat belt" type of restraint in very short order - so that option is out of the question for us). As to keeping him out of the car front-area - well, our long-legged Standard Poodle has no problem in still looking closely out the front windshield by putting his front feet on the center console - straddling the hammock - with no problem whatsoever. But we did discover that having the hammock in place does allow us to safely keep his water bottle and dish, his leash, and an old towel on the floor under the hammock - where he can no longer get at them (especially the leash and towel) to chew on them. All in all, an excellent seat cover.

My furbabies don't like leather seats!!!! But they love this seat cover!!!

Very hard to find a split bench seat cover at a reasonable price, this one fit the bill. Easy to install, very durable and looks to be easy to clean. Wanted something that would protect the leather seats and was pet friendly (hate it when the material of regular seat covers snags toenails and collars). I don't think I will have to buy another for many years!!!

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.

Split Rear Dog Seat Cover - Fitted - No Hammock

I had ordered this item from an on-line site and was extremely disappointed when I received the wrong item. I was impressed with the quality of the seat cover and decided to contact 4Knines directly. I placed my order with Maggie and received the Split Rear Dog Seat Cover within three days. The seat cover fits nicely in my new Honda CR-V and as stated by 4Knines, is very easy to install and remove. My 8-month old labradoodle Brodie likes the comfort, and friends agree with him. Great quality item, reasonably priced, and outstanding customer service. Thanks 4Knines.
