Since 1985, RAGOM has rescued and rehomed more than 9,000 Golden Retrievers and Golden Retriever mixes. In 2017, RAGOM adopted a new name—Retrieve a Golden of the Midwest—to reflect our dedication to expand our rescue efforts from our original home state of Minnesota to include Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and western Wisconsin.
Our Commitment to Accountable and Ethical Practices
RAGOM successfully completed a robust review with the Charities Review Council. Upon meeting all 27 of the Council's Accountability Standards, RAGOM was awarded the "Meets All Standards" seal, demonstrating our commitment to accountable and ethical practices. The Charities Review Council reviews a nonprofit organization’s performance in four critical areas: Public Disclosure, Governance, Financial Activity and Fundraising. The review works to ensure an organization’s operations, structure and policies meet widely accepted standards for accountability and transparency.
