In memory of Bill McIntyre


and his beloved dog Tess.


Sinora pre surgery

Our partners at Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue recovered this three-year old from a shelter. Sirona had a large mass on the side of her neck and was covered with fleas. She had lost a lot of weight as the mass impacted her ability to swallow and she showed signs of having been bred.

We are sponsoring Sirona and have contributed funds to help defray the cost of the surgery to remove the mass. A biopsy showed it was not cancer.

Sirona is now resting and recovering in a foster home. She has discovered the luxury of a dog bed and, with the obstruction removed, is now one hungry pup. She even gets on with her foster family’s cats.
