International Rescue Banner Freedom FLight 1000

Rescued from the streets of Mexico & arriving soon...


Meet Bonnie. 1 1/2 years old. 

She was savagely attacked twice by other street dogs and required 2 surgeries. Her matted, bloody fur was shaved in order to treat her wounds. She is healing from the physical wounds but it may take a while for her to heal from the trauma. In spite of it all, she gets along well with other dogs.


Meet Bella. 5 months old

She is very timid; not much else is known at this time. 

Her foster's comment is, "Whoever gets this little girl hit the jackpot."


They are arriving in Phoenix at 2:41 PM on Friday, September 13th, via Volaris Airlines flight 974 from Guadalajara.

For twenty years, RAGofAZ has been rescuing lost, abandoned, and displaced Golden Retrievers from our own communities here in Arizona. Now the call for rescue comes from across the ocean in China and South Korea, and from our neighbor to the south, Mexico. In partnership with dedicated international rescue organizations, RAGofAZ has saved dozens of Goldens who had been wandering the streets in search of food, and running in fear from abusers or certain death. We refuse to sit by and do nothing while these precious animals wait helplessly for rescue and reprieve. We fly these dogs to America where they receive medical care, life-saving surgery, nutritious food, and the warmth and love of a forever home at a cost of between $1,000 and $4,000.

Our work must continue. Will you help save the life of a desperate Golden Retriever by donating today? Any amount is deeply appreciated. Because hunger, illness, and despair know no language, no culture, and no boundary.

Please note: Your donation goes to the organization, not just to the dog you selected or to international dogs specifically.  All donations go into a central fund to help all dogs.

Before they begin their journey to America, all international dogs are placed with pre-approved families.  If you want to be considered to adopt future dogs, international and domestic, please submit an Application to Foster/Adopt found on the website, and someone will contact you.  If you are already approved, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
