Adopt a Golden Retriever

Are you ready to adopt a Golden Retriever? Read more about our adoption process and application.

As Good as Gold has rescued over 2,100 golden retrievers since May, 2003. At any given time, we have 35-40 dogs, ages six months to 14+ years of age, being cared for in the private homes of foster volunteers.

All of the dogs in our care do not appear on our website. The dogs we show you here are representative of the dogs we take into our program. Some of them may have already been adopted. You can review their stories to help you decide if a rescued golden retriever is the right pet for your family.

Coming Soon Golden Retrievers

These dogs are not yet ready for adoption but are anxious to introduce themselves to AGaG’s website visitors! All of the dogs are currently in foster homes while their needs are being addressed by their loving foster parents and the expert help of our veterinarians.

Some dogs have medical conditions ranging from ear infections to being heartworm positive; some are fearful due to their prior living conditions; all are seeking a stable place to adjust to their new situations. Stay tuned as these dogs complete their journeys through foster care and become ready for their forever homes.

If you would be interested in adopting a heartworm positive dog and guiding it through its heartworm treatment, please contact us at adoptions@asgoodasgold. In order to be eligible, one must complete AGaG’s adoption process which includes an application and a home visit interview. To learn more about heartworm and its treatment, contact us.

Golden Retrievers in Long Term Care

Sometimes, goldens come to us with issues that may keep them from being adoptable. Some are quite old and have very slim chances of adoption, and some have medical issues that may interfere with their adoption possibilities. Some have medical issues that are terminal.

As Good as Gold believes that every dog should have the chance to be comfortable and happy and should get the medical care they deserve, even if that means they stay as part of the AGaG family for the rest of their days. We developed the Long Term Care program so that these dogs could have all of those things. While dogs are in Long Term Care, As Good as Gold covers all medical expenses.

Below are our current Long Term Care dogs. These dogs are not available for adoption, however please click on their picture to learn more about them and consider making a donation towards As Good as Gold’s veterinary expenses.
