This was the first time GREAT was represented at Jacksonville Humane Society’s annual event. Although the weather was hot our volunteers (both human and canine) showed people what we are all about. Many of our adoptable dogs had photos displayed and we were photographed for a possible article on Jacksonville.com.
Besides offering guests the opportunity to sign up for our newsletter, a variety of information was available to help educate our visitors. Several attendees were in the early stages of considering dog ownership and left with a better sense of what this entails. We’re fortunate that GREAT has access to some material though our association with Purina and their Rally to Rescue program, and even more fortunate that GREAT has had 10 years to develop their own flyers and brochures to communicate our experience to those just starting.
More than just some rescue located on the coast of Florida, GREAT has the tools and techniques available to support both new and longtime Golden owners.
