MAY 2019

A Message from the President and Founder, Lauren Genkinger

Hi all.  Please check out our website for some new things:

Save the date for our next golden gala.  Please remember this is our major fundraiser
that we need to raise lots of money so we never have to worry about if we can
save a golden anywhere in the world.  I have never wanted to be one of those rescues
who have to check their bank balance before we commit to saving a dog.  So please try
to become a sponsor or ask your company if they can help.  We need cash donations
and we need items for our auction.


We also are announcing a May blow-out sale in our golden store.  We have great items

that have been drastically cut to half price!  And we will ship free any item you order
in May.  And while you are saving money spend some on our special needs orphans
who need sponsors to help them get ready to go to their new homes.  Help us

help these dogs!!!   


If you know Rita Christopher, tell her congratulations for being elected to
our Board of Directors for the second time but with a new job.  Rita is our new
Director of Volunteers, so go to our website and become a volunteer.

This is a good time for AGA so come on and join us, and make a difference in this world. 
I really am retired!!!  Thanks to our new Board!
With much gratitude,

Meet Robin
What was I thinking!  People tried to catch me when I was a lost
dog and I figured out all kinds of ways to keep that from happening.
Now that I'm with AGA and so many people are helping me, I'm finding
out what I almost missed!

 The plight of abandoned golden retrievers in Turkey continues and our wish
is to help as many as we can.  If you or anyone you know
is flying into Atlanta  
from Istanbul, would like to be a flight volunteer for Adopt a Golden Atlanta,   
and escort 1 or 2 dogs into our program, please reach out to us at  
To read more about this mission, how about starting from
where it all began
for Adopt a Golden Atlanta in May 2015.
