For dogs, we ask that before you visit, you take a few moments to read through our dog bio's and have a dog or two in mind that you wish to see.  Of course, if you are unsure, we can suggest dogs that we think will meet your requirements and personal situations.  We do not have open run areas for you to wander through.  You will be escorted to a visitation area and the dog(s) will be brought to you. We have found this to be the best method for showing our rescue dogs.

OUR NEW SANCTUARY PROGRAM IS UNDER WAY! - in response to a growing need for long-term
         care, GGOH has implemented a sanctuary program for both cats and dogs.  This is an evolving program but,
         we are well under way and happy to report our official launch of this new endeavor.


WE NEED YOU ~ BECOME A VOLUNTEER! Can you spare a few hours a week to help us out?  
         Summertime is very busy for everyone and during this time, our volunteer staff gets spread a little thin.  
         Can't say that we blame anyone because we all want to make the best of our short summer season but truth
         be told, the animals don't care what season it is and they count on us for their care.  Stop in today to talk to
         one of our volunteer coordinators and see how you can help.  

* BENEFIT WINES - Benefit Wines will donate $6 per bottle of wine ordered. There are six varieties to choose
         from and each bottle's label has a picture of one of Gregory's rescues.

Meet Timber.  Timber is the product of dog fighting.  Gregory's Gift of Hope was called to help when Timber was found by a local resident wandering in their yard.  One look at Timber and we knew we had to help.  Timber is covered in scars, is very under-weight and has visible signs of pain and discomfort when walking due to bone injuries that were not treated properly.  Timber suffered greatly at the hands of some pretty despicable humans - we could not let this sweet dog live the rest of his life knowing only pain and suffering.  Even with all of his injuries and with all of the mistreatment he has endured, he remains the sweetest dog and will shower you with kisses and tail wags when you greet him.  How could we say no to this - we couldn't!

Now to the guts of the matter - Timber's care is going to be costly, and our little no-kill rescue is in dire need of funding to continue with our mission of saving and helping those in need.  A GoFundMe campaign has been created by one of our dedicated volunteers - you'll find the link above.  We would be more than appreciative if you would consider making a donation and sharing this campaign with family and friends.  We've been here when the community has needed us and now, we need our community to step up and be there for us.  

We will continue to post updates on Timber here on our website as well as on our Facebook page and on the GoFundMe campaign site.

Gregory's Gift of Hope To Create 
Animal Sanctuary Program

Gregory's Gift of Hope (GGOH), a no-kill animal rescue/shelter serving St. Croix, Pierce and surrounding 
counties, is launching a sanctuary program in response to the growing number of discarded animals who are in need of life-long care and love.

Animals entering this program will initially transition from their existing adoption program but in the future, and as space allows, the program will also be open to animals coming to the facility who are in need of care until they are called “home”.

Two areas of their current facility will be designated as sanctuary space. "Rusty's Room" will be dedicated to a very special feline who passed from cancer after a lengthy stay at Gregory's and "Kelso's Kennels" will be dedicated to one of their current canines who will be the first rescue animal to enter into this new sanctuary program.

GGOH Animal Rescue was founded in 2004 by Colleen O’Shaughnessy out of her passion for animal welfare. Their mission is to offer refuge, nourishment and medical attention to injured, abused, abandoned, homeless and discarded animals. The organization is operated entirely by dedicated unpaid volunteers who donate their time.  This means that any funds entering the program can go straight to caring for the animals. They currently receive no city, county or government funding.

GGOH is looking for businesses or private individuals to become sustaining donors, for their continued rescue efforts, sponsors for the new sanctuary spaces and their ongoing local community adoption and fundraising events.

To learn more please visit www.ggoh-inc.com or contact Colleen O’Shaughnessy by email at 

coshaughnessy@yahoo.com or (715) 246-2467.



Gregory's Gift of Hope has found itself in a tough spot; a critical crossroads.

For several months now, GGOH has been walking the tightrope of time, hoping to reach the other side without faltering or falling. We have been struggling to keep our facility open to the public due to lack of funds coupled with the intake of several animals that have been in need of critical care.  As a rescue organization with a no-kill philosophy, this is very upsetting to all of us here who volunteer our time on a daily basis - we shudder to think that the unthinkable is very near to becoming reality. Day-to-day we hope and pray that we can continue our mission of helping those in need, both those who have yet to cross our doorstep as well as those that are currently in our care. It's stressful and troublesome but, there is hope, and that hope begins with YOU.  

It is difficult and heartbreaking to continually ask for help, but it must be done; if we do not ask, we will not receive. We currently have very few who have pledged their help by becoming a monthly sponsor and an even lesser amount of individuals who have chosen to donate on a regular basis.  Please understand that we greatly appreciate every penny we receive and to those of you who do donate regularly, your generosity is not overlooked - we are thankful for what you have been able to give and we consider you all part of our GGOH family.  Sadly though, our family is quite small. We NEED to grow our support pool and we must do it with a sense of urgency.  Now is the time to take action; we are very close to closing our doors but we have faith that this can be turned around.  

There are many ways that you can help:  

1) PLEASE consider becoming a sustaining member as this is the number one way that will help keep us from going under; you can pledge via PayPal using the "Donate" option above or you can pledge to help on a regular basis via other means (i.e. mailed donations or donations dropped off at our facility in person);

2) Making a payment on our veterinary bills ~ New Richmond Vet @ 715-246-4800 $10,100.00 balance; Hudson Pet Hospital @ 715-386-3511 $4,500.00 balance;

3) Pledge to sponsor your favorite rescue or sponsor a rescue who is currently receiving special medical care (ex: we have several rescues right now who are receiving medical care for treatable types of cancer).

While this may be harsh, we cannot hide the truth - without help from the animal loving community which includes people such as yourself, our rescue mission will not be able to continue, and hundreds of helpless animals in need will perish. Please do not let this happen; we know we can turn this around with your help.  Make a pledge today and share our mission with your family and friends - sharing our story and our mission will help to take us in the right direction.

For your generosity, compassion, and understanding, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts & paws!
