OUR MISSION


To provide bright new beginnings to displaced Golden Retrievers. Wisconsin Adopt a Golden Retriever is an all volunteer/member Golden Retriever rescue organization serving the state of Wisconsin and parts of Illinois. WAAGR was established in September 2004 and was given 501(c)(3) status in February 2005. Our first dog came in May of 2005. WAAGR has no paid staff and depends on the generosity of individuals that want to help provide a safe and happy life for Golden Retrievers that for whatever reason have lost their homes. Our volunteers/members will do what needs to be done to help these kind and loving animals find the perfect home. It is our belief that education and staying involved in our communities is the key to great placements in great forever homes. If you would like to become a member or volunteer with WAAGR, visit our Volunteer page.
