Calling All GOLFERS!

Are you a golfer? 

Perhaps, you know someone who enjoys golfing? We would love to have you come out and join us! The more the merrier, especially this year, as we celebrate the 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY of our fabulous tournament! At this point in time we already have FIVE teams registered!!

The tournament will be held on Friday September 15th, at Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club in Front Royal. As a participant, not only will you get to enjoy the beautiful, serene course, but you will also get to experience the new renovations and upgrades being done to the club itself. What a wonderful way to support our rescue, while enjoying a relaxing game with friends, family, or colleagues! 

This year we have made it easier than ever to register. I know that a lot of us would prefer to take care of things online, rather than via snail mail. No more worries about things getting lost in the mail, and you get an instant confirmation! If you, or someone else you know, would like to register for the tournament online, please follow this link:

Of course if you prefer to register using a hard copy of the form, you're more than welcome to do that as well. The hard copy of our registration form can be found in the lower right hand corner of this page, under Important Documents.

A Huge Thank You!

We want to send a HUGE thank you to Ninja Analytics, the first of what we hope will be many, Corporate Sponsors of the 10th Annual VGSR Golf Tournament.
They are an Alpha Female Sponsor!  

At Ninja Analytics, we use decision science and machine learning in operational settings to uncover patterns of illicit behavior and actors.

Our Vision

Creating sustainable, transparent systems to safeguard the global financial system from illicit use.


NORDO is a 5 month old puppy, who was hurt and found in a ditch.  X-Rays revealed a broken pelvis, most likely from being hit by a car.

Nordo underwent surgery to repair his pelvis. Due to the severity of the fractures, placing his pelvis back in its correct position was the best option.

Nordo has taken all of this in stride and after several weeks of crate rest is happy to be able to be out and about for limited walks as he gains his strength and builds muscle.  He is very outgoing and wants to meet everyone and everything.  His latest conquest is a Nylabone!

Hollie's Story

Meet Hollie, 

Hollie is 11.5 years old GSD who prior to joining VGSR had lived her entire life
Hollie & Flo
outdoors.  Due to a skin infection she was shaved.  Her fur is growing back as the infection has been eradicated.  Hollie is also 15 pounds underweight and we are working on the cause of her weight loss.  While Hollie has not had much interaction with dogs, she has settled into her foster home without issue. She is truly a gentle giant and wants nothing more than to be by your side and will follow you where ever you go.

Hollie has taken to living indoors and while she will follow you where ever you go, she is very content to snooze on a big comfy bed [as long as it is near you].

She is looking for a loving family that she can call her own.  Is it yours?

Sweet Mature GSD - Looking for Love

Florence is a petite little lass who when she first joined VGSR was timid and scared of everything, extremely underweight with whip worms and a skin infection.
Her skin infection and the whip worms have been resolved and she is slowly gaining weight. She is 7 years old but has not been socialized with people or dogs.  Flo is the sweetest gal and is slowly learning to trust and is gaining confidence.  Her house mates are very patient and she is learning by watching and mimicking their behavior.  Flo is getting comfortable going on walks and has begun to play ball.  She is getting better meeting people, but the process is slow as she will approach for attention then retreat if you shift positions or move too fast.  In time, Flo will blossom into a lovely, confident companion.

Please contact VGSR, if you are the right loving home for this wonderful girl.
