I'm looking for an email for GRREAT in Northern VA, all I get are links to an email program I don't email addresses.

Can you help?

I need to send them info to rescue a furry friend.

Donation Cards

Almost Heaven has "in memorial" or "in honor" cards available to anyone who makes a donation and would like notification sent to someone. These are not fancy, but they are personalized as we print them individually for each person. All we need from the donor is the wording you would like on your card, and the name and address to send it to. In addition to the card, your memorial will also be posted on our donors webpage, and if you wish to sponsor a dog in memorial or in honor of someone, we will post that information along with your name next to the animal you sponsor. Remember - these gifts can be for a birthday, anniversary, graduation - just about anything. And, they would be so appreciated here.

The inside of the card can be modified to fit any occasion and individual situations. You can order through PayPal using the "donation" button below or mail request to Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue, P.O. Drawer D, Delray, WV 26714

* * The Following Golden(s) are Searching for Angels and Sponsors * *
Almost heaven is always being called upon to help Golden and Golden Mixes that include many Seniors and Special Needs dogs.

We seem to always be swamped with requests, and have been able to accomodate all requests for help for the purebreds, and 99% of the requests for help for our Golden Mix Orphans. In order to assist more, our alternative is to board some these of dogs (some are already in boarding) until an adoption or foster home is available. Boarding is costly and funding may limit the number of dogs we can help. These are dogs whose owners are sick, have passed away, have had life changing events happen, or some have simply been dumped and left to die through no fault of their own.

If you would like to help save a life ... and can afford to assist with boarding expenses ... we (and the furkids) would be most appreciative of your help! The cost to board ONE dog for a week is $ 35.00 - $70.00, depending on the facility available to us. Presently, we estimate that each new dog we commit to taking in may need to board for at least 2 weeks. We gratefully accept any financial assistance offered, and if you think you are cut out to be a "foster parent", please contact us - we'd love to work with you.

The following are Goldens in need of assistance:


Joshua aka Josh is only 3 years old. This sweet boy is missing a leg and heartworm positive - - - - and if if his luck wasn't down enough, he ended up at a high kill shelter where his time to be adopted or rescued was VERY short. We couldn't leave Josh to die, he's now in foster care and will soon be making his journey to the Sanctuary to be neutered and receive treatment for his Heartworm Disease. He is one of the best natured dogs on earth - - - an absolute sweetheart. Josh is seeking angels to sponsor his veterinary expenses. If you can spare a few dollars to help with his expenses, Josh and Almost Heaven would be very grateful.


Amos - Black Labrador Retriever

3 - 4 year old Amos found himself homeless - and sick. Amos has Lymes disease and is heartworm positive. Almost heaven will begin treating Amos for Lymes first so that he is as healthy as possible before we treat him for his heartworm disease. Amos has a very sweet temperment with a tail that never stops wagging. Black dogs are often times overlooked in shelters, and sick black dogs stand little chance of being adopted - or rescued. We think Amos deserves another chance at being a happy, healthy dog. We are looking for sponsors/angels to help defray some of Amos' medical bills. Amos should be ready for his new home by September 15th. We are accepting adoption applications for him now.
