We invite you to become an Adopt a Golden Nashville Member and/or Medical Sponsor
Our annual membership drive is in full swing and we ask that you please consider joining the Adopt a Golden Nashville family. Due to our increasing costs of medical bills, this year we are introducing our annual medical sponsorship opportunity. 

Your financial support helps us in our mission to rescue, care for and find wonderful forever families for unwanted, neglected and abandoned Golden Retrievers and Golden mixes. We've made a tremendous impact in the lives of so many Goldens and Golden mixes. Join us in 2018 and help us show even more pups just how wonderful life can be.

AGN Highlights
The love of a foster mom
One of our wonderful fosters recently shared her first foster experience:

"We had the absolute joy of fostering Charlie. He was a true gentleman and my family fell in love. To be able to share our lives with this boy has touched my family in so many ways. He stole my heart! I loved everything about this boy and was so happy to be able to shower him with tons of love and affection... to be able to help him find his forever home with a wonderful family has been the best blessing ever!" - Shannon L.

Thank you for sharing your first foster story with us, Shannon. Charlie was so lucky to be loved by your family - what a terrific start to his new life!
Amelia: Turkey dog & cancer survivor!
Rescued from the streets of Ankara, Turkey, Amelia is the sweetest girl in the entire world. She came a long way to the loving arms of AGN and arrived in dire shape with a cancerous tumor. Generous donations allowed AGN to have the tumor removed. Amelia went through six rounds of chemo and is now FULLY CURED OF CANCER! 

Medical Expenses: $11,000 - and Amelia was worth every penny! Thank you kind donors for blessing Amelia with the chance for a great life.
Pennies for Pearl make a world of difference
Pearl was surrendered to AGN because she needed immediate repair to two knees, but her owner could not afford the $6,500 surgery plus the cost of spay and other vetting. After living with quite a bit of pain, we were thrilled to be able to raise enough money for Pearl to undergo the first of two knee surgeries. She is now making great progress and preparing for her second knee surgery.

Medical Expenses: $3,345 to date. An additional $2,600 is needed for Pearl's final surgery.
Louisa May - Formerly Clara Burton
From Turkey Dog to loved family member
Louisa May (formerly Clara Burton) was rescued from Turkey in 2017. She's gone from living on the streets to living the good life with her Golden brother and fellow AGN alum, Alden (formerly Clark).
Jerry's forever home builds his confidence
Jerry found his way into the AGN family two years ago. He was shut down and terrified of human touch. We are thrilled to hear from his forever home that he is blossoming! He's now a happy, confident pup - beautiful, sassy and the light of his forever family's lives.
