BOND's Emergency Page

Bond, a male golden retriever owned by a dear friend of our GRSRS&EC executive director, went missing on Saturday, June 28, 2014 from the Crackerbarrel Fairgrounds in Wrentham, MA. While the search continues for Bond, we dedicate this section to Bond,  his owner Carol and others waiting for their pets to come home.


"We dedicate this page Bond and all pets in emergency conditions. May we learn from one another and share our experiences to better our canine community."

Joan Puglia,

Executive Director,
