Rescues across the country have seen a dramatic decline in the number of Golden Retrievers needing to be rehomed. Although we are occasionally asked to rehome a healthy, young, purebred Golden, many of our dogs have medical or behavioral issues. 

At the same time, more families want to adopt a rescued Golden Retriever, but we simply cannot meet the demand for young purebred Goldens with no major issues. When RAGOM has such a dog, we also have many eligible potential adopters. We appreciate all previous adopters, our donors, and interested families. However, we can only prioritize based on what is best for our dogs.
