In memory of Bill McIntyre


and his beloved dog Tess.



Bernice was only four months old when a breeder turned her over to our partners Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies. She suffered from a condition called ectopic ureter which left her unable to control the leakage of urine.

GRRR brought her to the Colorado State University veterinary hospital where she underwent surgery to correct the condition. She was then adopted by a loving family that was willing to help her through her recovery and house train her.

Now one year old, Bernice again began to show some leakage of urine despite being house trained. Her condition affected another ureter and she went back to CSU for a second surgery. Bernice is now back home with her family.

We are sponsoring Bernice and have made a contribution to help offset the cost of Bernice’s surgery.

The Tess McIntyre Foundation is a 501(c)3 charity that works with our rescue agency partners to provide funds necessary to help rescued dogs that need medical treatment. One hundred percent of the funds donated to the foundation go toward supporting dogs like Bernice.
