Our Mission

Our 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.

Adoption Policy

WE DO NOT ADOPT OUTSIDE OF THE STATE OF ARIZONA. If you are interested in adopting from Arizona Golden Rescue, please visit our webpage at and complete an Online Adoption Application to begin the process, or send an e-mail to if you have questions and wish to be contacted.

Please note: it is the policy of AGR not to place a dog under 3 years of age or a shelter dog with a family that has children under 3 years of age.

Once we receive your application, a home visit will be scheduled. When your home visit is approved, you will be placed on our waiting list. Our sole purpose is to find the perfect home for the dog as the dog always comes first.

Prior to adoption, all AGR dogs are given a full vet exam, including valley fever and heartworm tests, brought up to date on all vaccinations, given a microchip, neutered or spayed, and treated for any medical problems.
