did you

know?

In 2022, WAAGR spent an average of $1,100 per dog. These costs come from medical bills, transfer costs, behavioral training, etc. Our adoption fee is only $550 per dog, so this is why donations and fundraising are so critical to keep our rescue going.

LIVES SAVED

Since we were established in 2004, WAAGR has been working every day to ensure no golden feels unwanted. We reach places as far away as Puerto Rico, Lebanon, and China. Our love and compassion for these animals shows through our small team of volunteers that tirelessly strive towards our goal of having every golden end the day in a warm bed surrounded by a loving family.
