New England Golden Jubilee 2023

Donation protected
Hello, Friends.

We are excited to be planning for the Ninth Annual New England Golden Jubilee! With your help, we will continue to build and help sustain support of the Morris Animal Foundation Golden Retriever Lifetime Study. We believe in the study. Too often we learn that yet another Golden Retriever we know has just been diagnosed or has lost his/her battle with cancer. You'll recall that our lead canine organizer, Nutmeg, crossed the bridge in December, 2019, due to an aggressive cancer. Our original lead canine organizer, Ginger, succumbed to hemangiosarcoma just after the first ever New England Golden Jubilee. The reality is that 60 percent of Golden Retrievers will develop cancer and 50 percent of dogs over age ten die of cancer. The research gathered from the 3,000 Golden Retrievers, including our Andy, who are enrolled for life in the study, will benefit all dogs, all breeds. Ultimately, the findings will also benefit humans!

On May 19-20, 2023 from all over New England and beyond, Golden Retrievers, Golden Retriever Heroes and Supporters of the Study will once again gather together at Dog Mountain, home of the Stephen Huneck Gallery and the Dog Chapel in Saint Johnsbury, Vermont for a golden good time! We'll have a bonfire, hikes, swimming, games, a blessing of the animals and a cookout. It promises to be a perfectly golden gathering! Each dog who attends will receive a New England Golden Jubilee bandanna and a logo bag with some goodies in it.

The event is free to all attendees. After covering expenses, all funds raised will be donated to the Morris Animal Foundation Golden Retriever Lifetime Study. The last time we were able to host the event, together with matching funds we were able to donate over $10,000. to the Study.

Please visit us at and on Facebook.

Thank you for your support!
