Have you ever heard the term, “she’s living the Life of Riley?” Well, my name is Riley and I am happy to say that after two years of darkness and sadness, I’m finally living that life. “What?” you say; “How?”

Let me begin at the beginning. . .

I’m from a long, long way away (I think someone said it was a place called Korea), The first couple of years of my life are a blur and I’ve done my best to forget what they were like because they were unhappy times for me. I was saved by some extraordinary people from a rescue where I was given love, food, a clean bed, and much-needed medical care.

One day my rescue friends put me in a crate and took me to a place that had HUGE birds - I think they’re called airplanes. I traveled for a long, noisy time, tucked away in the darkness in the belly of that big bird. I was SO afraid, but somehow I felt protected by the spirits and positive thoughts of many people who were watching my journey.

When the bird finally stopped flying, someone lifted me out, put me on a cart, and wheeled me to a strange place that I’d never seen before. Where was I and when would they let me out of this darn crate???

My questions were soon answered when two angels from RAGofAZ greeted me with hugs and smiles. They could see that I was shaking, but their calm voices and tender pets helped to put me at ease. Just when I thought they were finally going to let me out of the crate, they put me in a car and drove me to another airport where some very nice people awaiting my arrival.
And guess, what - - - they finally let me out of the crate!! I was finally free! I’m sure that my new friends could see my smile with relief to be on solid ground and not in that crate.

After a very short time in a smaller bird (not in the crate - - - thank goodness!) we arrived at a place where I was welcomed by smiling, happy people from RAGofAZ; they seemed so happy to see me!

My journey wasn’t over yet. After a few days with a foster where I could acclimate to my surroundings, meet two nice Golden boys, and receive medical care from a very nice vet, I traveled to my forever home. My new home is in the quiet, beautiful desert and my new family is the best. I can tell by their voices and hugs that they love me already. And the best news yet is that I have a new brother named Cash. I know that we’re going to be best friends.

My life of Riley is just beginning, thanks to all of the volunteers at RAGofAZ; I have a second chance at life. Sending woofs, tail wags, and wet kisses to you all.

Love, Riley (who’s living the life. . .)

A message from Steve's new family

We can not explain how thrilled we are to have our new family member "Steve." We love him dearly. It is just like he knows who we are and has melted my husband Bob's heart. It is a match that is so hard to explain.

When we walk for instance, Bob has a scooter. He walks on his harness and leash with me and along Bob's side as we go. He looks back to be sure I am still Steve 15 012cthere and keeps walking. It is a hoot to see the two of them. He melts the hearts along the way and we just chuckle knowing he has us as his new family.
We do not know how to express our deepest appreciation to all of you to have helped us with this process. Please know it is a HUGE blessing and we are forever grateful. We will be in touch often and be sure to let you know of our milestones as we go. So far EVERYTHING is perfect in every aspect and know it will not end.

The happiest new parents in the world!
Bob & Kay

Hello Rescue A Golden of Arizona members and friends - I am Harlow, a beautiful sweet 7 year old Golden girl looking for a forever home. I love to be the center of attention, so would rather be your only pal. I would be so happy to have a fenced in yard where I can meander around and catch all the sounds and smells. And either no pool or a fenced pool.

Did I mention that I am almost blind? I can see a little in the light, but still need some help navigating the house and yard until I learn where everything is located. After that, I am good to go, and can get around just like any other dog. Would you give me a chance? I can love you and be your Golden pal forever!!!! One request.......promise not to move the furniture too often...once I get the lay of the land - I can be a great addition to your family.
