Kroger recently upgraded its Community Rewards system, and as a result, we have a new Non-Profit Organization (NPO) account number (GB630). The old number will continue to be associated with our rescue, but it will not be visible when you enroll or re-enroll. You can search for us by number (GB630) or name (SEVA GREAT). Please note that it is GREAT with one R! https://www.kroger.com/account/enrollCommunityRewardsNow/
Previously, Kroger notified customers when it was time to re-enroll. We're not sure they are continuing that practice. In order to check that your enrollment is still active, do the following:
On the Community Rewards page, click on "View Details" under "I'm a Customer."
Sign in to your existing account. If you don't have an account, you can create one here.
Your status and chosen organization will appear.
If you are new to Kroger Community Rewards, selecting SEVA GREAT is as simple as updating the Kroger Community Rewards selection on your digital account:
Sign into your digital account.
Enter the NPO number (GB630) or name of our organization (SEVA GREAT).
SEVA GREAT will display in the Kroger Community Rewards section of your account.
By simply linking SEVA GREAT to your Kroger Plus Card as your organization of choice, you'll help us with every trip to the grocery store, while spending nothing more than you already are on groceries! Ask your family and friends to choose us too.
Thank you for your continued support of SEVA GRREAT through the Kroger Community Rewards program.

There I sat, alone and afraid,
You got a call and came right to my aid.
You bundled me up with blankets and love.
And, when I needed it most, you gave me a hug.
I learned that the world was not all that scary and cold.
That sometimes there is someone to have and to hold.
You taught me what love is, you helped me to mend.
You loved me and healed me and became my first friend.
And just when I thought you'd done all you do,
There came along not one new lesson, but two.
First you said, "Sweetheart, you're ready to go.
I've done all I can, and you've learned all I know."
Then you bundled me up with a blanket and kiss.
Along came a new family, they even have kids!
They took me to their home, forever to stay.
At first I thought you sent me away.
Then that second lesson became perfectly clear.
No matter how far, you will always be near.
And so, Foster Mom, you know I've moved on.
I have a new home, with toys and a lawn.
But I'll never forget what I learned that first day.
You never really give your fosters away.
You gave me these thoughts to remember you by.
We may never meet again, and now I know why.
You'll remember I lived with you for a time.
I may not be yours, but you'll always be mine.

It makes sense to have one of the first entries focused on safety. Safety provides the foundation for everything else we do to help our golden retrievers live long, healthy, and happy lives. There are lots of areas in which safety should be a concern: playing, going for a walk, play dates with other dogs, riding in the car. A safe environment free of dangerous things your dog might ingest, however, is crucial in the world of golden retrievers. I'll never forget taking one of my golden retrievers to a local emergency room when she developed a very large swelling on her nose subsequent to a wasp sting. Fearing a more exaggerated allergic reaction, and of course it was a Saturday night, I wanted to make sure things did not get worse and cause some real problems for her. So, off we went to the vet ER. Upon walking in the door, we were greeted with a chorus from the staff, all saying in unison." and what did yours eat tonight? The waiting room had no fewer than 4 golden retrievers in it, all of whom had ingested something they shouldn't have.
