Happy Endings

Since May 2003, As Good as Gold has rescued over 2,000 Golden Retrievers. With your help, every rescued Golden Retriever gets a second chance to find its forever home. The lucky dogs below are just a few of the goldens who have been adopted by loving families.

Do you have a Success Story of an As Good as Gold dog that you’d like to share on our website? If so, please email a brief story, a photo, your full name, email address, phone number, and dog’s name to success@asgoodasgold.org. Please allow us to edit for size if necessary. Keep an eye on these happy endings as new stories arrive each week!
