SECOND

CHANCES

WAAGR's mission goes beyond simply re-homing displaced Golden Retrievers and Golden Retriever mixes. We create bright new beginnings and provide second chances for these beautiful, loving, and selfless creatures.

We hope you can join us. 

 

WHO WE ARE

Wisconsin Adopt a Golden Retriever is an all volunteer, foster-based Golden Retriever rescue organization serving the state of Wisconsin and parts of Illinois since 2005.

Our mission is to provide bright new beginnings to displaced Golden Retrievers.

know?

In 2021, WAAGR spent an average of $1,068 per dog. These costs come from medical bills, transfer costs, behavioral training, etc. Our adoption fee is only $475 per dog, so this is why donations and fundraising are so critical to keep our rescue going.

LIVES SAVED

For 17 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.
