Please Note: Arizona Golden Rescue does not have a facility where the dogs are located. Being a 100% Volunteer organization, all our dogs are in foster homes until they are adopted. Our mailing address of 5350 W. Bell Rd, Glendale, AZ is a Mail Box facility where we receive our mail. Our WAGSline is available Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm. Calls outside of these hours will be sent to voicemail where we are notified via email that a voicemail has been left. Urgent calls will be responded to as soon as possible.

***Our Mission Statement***
Arizona Golden Rescue is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c) (3), charitable organization whose mission is to rescue displaced Golden Retrievers and mostly-Golden Retriever mixes that may have been abused, abandoned, neglected, unwanted, or surrendered by their owners due to previously unforeseen circumstances and to find new, permanent homes for them. Rescued dogs are given a complete veterinary exam and their vaccines are updated. They are also microchipped, spayed or neutered, and tested for valley fever and heartworm. The rescued dogs are then placed into Foster homes or "Foster With Intent To Adopt" homes until they are permanently placed with their new "Forever Homes." Arizona Golden Rescue is a "Non-Shelter Rescue" with all dogs staying in Foster homes till adopted.
If you need to contact our Intake team concerning the possible surrender of a Golden or Golden Mix please submit you inquiries via this link.
***What we do for the Dogs***
Arizona Golden Rescue provides emotional and medical rehabilitation and will pay for all medications and for necessary surgeries prior to adoptions being finalized. If "Bonded Pairs" that fit our criteria are surrendered to AGR we will guarantee that the pairs will stay together. Through education at public appearances, AGR seeks to educate the public about the Golden Retriever breed and about responsible dog ownership, in order to help reduce the unwanted dog population.
If you are interested in adopting a Rescued Golden Retriever or Golden Retriever Mix, the best way for us to find just the right dog for you is to fill out the Online Adoption Application form under the Membership and Adoption drop down menu above so that we may contact you to start the process.
***Where we Operate***
Arizona Golden Rescue's rescue efforts are concentrated in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area, but we will take dogs from all areas of the state and sometimes even from out of state. Because of the National trend of fewer Golden Retrievers coming into rescue, Arizona Golden Rescue has made the decision not to accept Out of State adoptions as there are many applicants in state that do not receive dogs because of the limited number of dogs coming in.
***How to Contact Us***
For information on adopting or surrendering a Golden Retriever or Mostly Golden Retriever Mix, please contact us by phone at (623)566-WAGS (9247). The "WAGS Line" is answered live from 8:00 am till 6:00 pm. Monday thru Friday. Calls outside these hours will be answered by Voicemail and we will return your call by the next day or at a time you designate. If your purpose of contacting us is regarding the surrender of a Golden Retriever or Mostly Golden Mix, you may also click this Web Inquiry link to send a message to our IntakeTeam.

Donations to Help Support Our Adoptable Dogs' Needs
All our dogs upon Intake go through a complete veterinary exam and all shots are updated, they are checked for Valley Fever and Heartworm, and any other medical issues are attended to so when they go to their foreverhomes they are are healthy as they can be. The average Vet costs per dog work out to be about $1000, much more than what our adoption fees are. We depend on Fundraising, Grants and Donations to make sure each dog receives the medical care that it deserves to live a happy, healthy life.
