PAINT BY NUMBERS FUNDRAISER
From now through November 30, any donation to WAAGR in the amount of $20 or more (via physical payment or online through WAAGR's website) is eligible to receive a discount code for a PaintNumbers paint-by-number kit!
For 15 years, 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.
In 2019, WAAGR spent an average of $688 per dog. These costs come from medical bills, transfer costs, behavioral training, etc. Our adoption fee is only $450 per dog, so this is why donations and fundraising are so critical to keep our rescue going.
