Amazing organization dedicated to saving and the health of Golden Retrievers. They screen the people who want to adopt and the dogs that are to be placed for a perfect match. This is critical to make sure they are both a good match together. I cannot say enough about how dedicated the people are who work and run Arizona Golden Rescue and no one gets paid. All the proceeds go to the dogs Veternarian bills. ALL adopted dogs Vet bills are paid for regardless of how expensive. THIS IS AMAZING IN ITSELF as many Goldens are given up because they need hip replacements or extensive surgery. AGR pays for this and then you adopt for a small fee. The wait can be long but worth it. We got Zoe who was a puppy mill mom. She needed some Vet TLC… fixed, shots, hip radiographs, benign tumor on her leg removed…. all paid for by AGR.

I messaged late one night when I was desperate with my puppy. I was ready to give up. They called me first thing in the morning and referred me to a behaviorist who was willing to give me suggestions right away. I started the morning in frustrated tears, but the end of the day they were tears of gratitude because my puppy had completely turned around.

Thank you so much for the help. This is the support every dog owner needs. Especially those pesky adorable pups.

I waited for a puppy. I got the best golden imaginable – English Cream – 9 weeks old. They had him tested at vet, all shots updated and then paid for his neutering surgery. They are amazing.

I wouldn’t bother with this organization. Their screening requirements are more stringent than needed, and they are happy to take your application fee and then tell you you need to reconfigure your yard, home, lifestyle, to suit an animal that survived long before humans decided to make them into pets. Got a patch of dirt in your yard? Denied? Won’t put a fence around a cactus or oleander? Denied.

I guess they have forgotten that Goldens are pretty smart creatures, and aren’t looking to throw themselves into cacti. I think this organization has lost sight of the mission.

I should have known all this by the neurotic and lengthy application.

In short summary, if you live in a steril laboratory like environment and you might have a shot at adopting a dog from them….



Their SSL security certificate is expired. Fortunately most web browsers make it obvious that you should turn back before providing any personal or sensitive data.

They have my dog that has been missing for six months. They refuse to let me see if it’s really her or let me have her back. Horrible horrible rescue. Shame on you.
