MARCH 2020

Stewart & Garbo   
  Please meet two of our special dogs that arrived from Turkey.  What makes them so
special?  They both are tripawds!  In other words, they have a leg up when it comes
to courage and spirit.  They're still living life to the fullest, and as you can see from
the pictures, their very happy!  They're very inspiring because they don't let it
bring them down; a wonderful quality to have to become a therapy dog.

A store for pets and the people who love them.  
Equal parts neighborhood gathering place and smart retail store, PetPeople is all about helping pets thrive.
The best foods, natural products, and an educated, passionate, dedicated and pet-loving team of associates, come together to make the lives of our four-legged friends the best they can be.

Our pets deserve nothing less.


In 2020, AGA would like to increase its
contribution to society.  Golden retrievers are
not only good pets, they make wonderful pet
therapy dogs.  AGA now has a liaison with
Happy Tails Pet Therapy, the oldest and
largest pet therapy group in the Atlanta area.

If any of our adopters are interested in
hearing more about becoming a member of
Happy Tails Pet Therapy, please contact:

 Heartbreak for dog owners: Popular breed more prone now to cancer

The American Kennel Club lists golden retrievers as the third most popular breed in the United States, just behind Labrador retrievers and German shepherds.
"Golden retrievers naturally love people," said Pauline Hoegler, owner of Golden Opportunities for Independence in Walpole, which raises the breed to serve as help dogs.
And the feeling is apparently mutual.


AGA was very busy this past month with some amazing adoptions!  Here are some
of the new families that were formed in February.  Congratulations to all of our
pups who found their forever homes

Archie, Ruffles, Ginger, Gus, Cassie, Brockton, Astaire TD, Vivien TD

A HUGE thank you to all the volunteers, especially the foster families who helped
these orphans (and thank you to all the volunteers who help bring the Turkey dogs)
find their forever families!
