Where your money goes

Since 1985, RAGOM has rescued and rehomed more than 8,500 Golden Retrievers and Golden mixes throughout Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Western Wisconsin.

RAGOM works with several veterinary clinics to ensure that every dog we bring into our care receives the medical attention he or she needs. Most dogs are healthy and require only a wellness check and vaccination updates. However, many dogs require tests, medications, and expensive surgeries.

RAGOM’s adoption fee is far less than the medical expenses a dog incurs. In 2016, our veterinary costs exceeded $200,000. We rely on the generosity of our supporters and donors to help cover these costs. Examples of how your donation supports a dog:

$10 One month heartworm preventative
$20 One month flea and tick preventative
$25 Fecal test
$25 Microchip
$25 Most routine vaccines (Rabies, Bordetella, DHLPP)
$40 General wellness exam
$40 Heartworm test
$75 Blood work (CBC)
$90 Treatment for intestinal parasites
$100 Dental cleaning
$100 Spay/neuter
