In 2017, Rescue A Golden of Arizona joined a nationwide outreach and became an international rescue, liberating Goldens from South Korean meat farms, and Turkish and Mexican streets. Since then, RAGofAZ and devoted forever families gave over forty dogs a second chance at life, and more Goldens are waiting for us to rescue them.
They all have a heartwarming success story about their new Golden life. But they come at a cost, making it necessary to charge more than the U.S. dogs’ adoption fees.
The minimal cost of rescuing these Goldens is $1000 each for in-country vetting, crates, and airfare. Additionally, after they arrive, they get a routine exam, a microchip, and several tests to ensure all health needs are met. Some need to be spayed/neutered or need treatment for minor illnesses. A few require more intensive treatment.
We don’t make a profit from our adoption fees; we depend on fundraising events and donations to fill the gap. To continue rescuing international Goldens, we have to increase the adoption fee. The dogs who were rescued from a horrific life seem to know they’ve been given a second chance and are eager to please their forever families.
Thank you for your support and for investing in a Golden life.
Note: The adoption fee for Mexican dogs remains the same as U.S. dogs.
These precious pups are worth their weight in Gold.
