Adoption

An Important Message Regarding the Availability of RAGOM Dogs

Rescues across the country have seen a dramatic decline in the number of Golden Retrievers needing to be rehomed. Although we are sometimes asked to rehome a healthy, purebred Golden, many of our dogs have medical or behavioral issues. We have also seen a dramatic rise in the number of applicants for all of our dogs.

Because the number of dogs we rescue is decreasing and the number of interested adopters is significantly increasing, we simply do not have enough dogs to adopt to everyone who applies. We appreciate our previous adopters, our donors, and interested families. However, we can only prioritize based on what is best for our dogs.
