MARCH 2017
It's Party Time!

Annie has a special message for you. She's inviting you to join us for the Golden Gala on Saturday, April 29, from 7 to 10 pm at Flourish in Buckhead. See the miracle of rescued Golden Retrievers. Enjoy the lavish food stations from Tony Conway's Legendary Events, a silent and live auction, our signature Goldentinis and the Randy Hoexter Jazz Trio. Purchase tickets or sponsorships now.
Our TD14s on the March Madness plane will be arriving soon in Atlanta. AGA is bringing in four more Turkey Dogs, rescued from Istanbul, Turkey. Three boys (Dribble, Freethrow and Jumpshot) and one girl (Indy) are coming to America. With their arrival, AGA has rescued 273 Golden Retrievers from Istanbul since May 2015.

We need Silent Auction items for our three April events, the Golden Open Golf Tournament, Golden Open Tennis Tournament and Golden Gala. We're looking for restaurant gift cards, bottles of wine, entertainment/sports event tickets, gift baskets, hotel/resort stays, jewelry - you get the idea! You can drop donations off at Adoption Day this Sunday, or email for further information.
