An Important Message about RAGOM and the State of Rescue
As rescues across the country saw a dramatic decline in Golden Retrievers needing to be rehomed, RAGOM expanded their reach to Goldens from commercial breeding facilities and international rescue programs.
Dogs rescued from commercial breeders have had little to no human interaction and socialization. These dogs need a home with a medium to large confident resident dog to learn from, no young children, and no electric fences. Read more about their needs.
We also rescue dogs from other countries, and while they do not have set requirements, they often come to us with trauma and challenges that require training and accommodation of their unique needs.
RAGOM is seeing fewer dogs that have no special needs—and when we do have such a dog, we have many applicants for that dog. We appreciate our previous adopters, donors, and interested families. However, we can only prioritize based on what is best for our dogs.
