ABOUT US

Andy’s Story

The inspiration for Andy's Army was a dog named Andy Bechtel. Andy Bechtel was adopted from Golden Retriever Rescue Resource, Inc. (GRRR) in 2008.  In the summer of 2009 he was diagnosed with canine cancer.  Despite valiant efforts to save his life, Andy died in November of 2009. Andy’s plight was not unique as canine cancer still remains the leading cause of death among all older dogs and is prevalent among many breeds of dogs including golden retrievers.

Our Mission
