RAGOM Board Recruitment – Application Period is Open!

We are currently recruiting applicants for the Board of Directors. As our organization continues to grow and expand our mission, we want to broaden Board representation intentionally. We are seeking members with
experience in legal, finance, veterinary medicine and leadership, along with volunteers who are passionate about rescue operations.

We recently committed to a new, expanded mission: We provide Golden Retrievers and Golden Retriever mixes a second chance through education, advocacy, rescue, and community outreach. And while our recent strategic focus has been removing barriers to rehoming dogs and providing support to our network of foster families, we look to the next Board to determine our role in advocacy, education, and expanding our impact in dog rescue efforts. Board positions are 3-year terms and unpaid. If you think this might be the time for you, we would love to start a conversation!

Applicants with diverse backgrounds and experience are encouraged to apply.

RAGOM thrives on the generosity and boundless energy of our volunteers! We need all types of volunteers to fulfill our mission.  Except for Foster homes,  volunteer positions are not restricted by territory.  Foster homes need to be located in our five state area of Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, and western Wisconsin.


Transport volunteers move incoming RAGOM dogs safely to their foster homes.


RAGOM foster families nurture our dogs until they are placed in their forever homes.
