 The Latest from Golden Rescue


Well look at me – I’m on a jet ski – whooooooosh.  Owens here, CAPTAIN of TEAM GOLDEN for the Yorkville Run/Walk.  Since I arrived from Istanbul, I have had SO MUCH FUN!!  I LOVE CANADA! 

Thank you Golden Rescue.  So, here’s the scoop.  I want YOU to join TEAM GOLDEN for the Yorkville Run/Walk on September 11th.  So far, 65 humans and 32 fur-walkers are joining me and raising funds for all my Canadian and Istanbul buddies who need your help.  Some of them are so sad and lonely, but life doesn’t have to be like that.  You can walk for them (with your fur-kid) and help raise funds to make them happy and healthy – maybe even ride on a jet ski!  Write to communications(at)goldenrescue.caand get instructions for signing up, or support me by clicking on my donation page:  https://yorkvillerun.com/profile/owens/2953/ 

C’mon, let’s ROCK RESCUE in Yorkville.  Vrooooom – off I go…



Hey there - Yorkville Run participants! It’s your CAPTAIN of TEAM GOLDEN, Owens. Look at me! I’m dirty! I love dirt. Ya gotta roll in dirt after swimming, right? SO much fun! Ok, back to business. I WANT YOU to join my team or support ME for the Yorkville Run/Walk on September 11th.  

We’ve got almost 60 people and 30 fur-walkers signed up for the race to raise funds for all my Canadian and Istanbul buddies – oh my, so many of them are in a bad way and really need your help.  They all deserve a life like mine.  Write to communications(at)goldenrescue.ca and get instructions for signing up, or support me through my donation page:    https://yorkvillerun.com/profile/owens/2953/
