The Love of a Golden

 

 

No one shares the love better than a Golden Retriever. Their unconditional love is the best! In the spirit of a Golden Retriever's love, AGA wishes a Happy Valentine's Day to all of our donors, adopters, fosters and volunteers. We just love you! 

Thanks to you, AGA is one of the largest Golden Retriever Rescue organizations in the U.S. And a very special thanks from all of our AGA orphans.

Thumper is a 4-year-old Great Pyrenees. 
February Orphan of the Month
February Orphan of the Month
He came to AGA as a puppy and was adopted, but returned recently since his family could no longer keep him. 
He's a sweet, good boy. He needs a fenced yard because he likes to roam and he is on prescription food.
Watch Thumper's video to see what he is looking for in an adoptive family and then  come meet him at Adoption Day.
