As Good as Gold’s Dog Programs represent the core of our mission and work to support the rescue, rehabilitation, care, and adoption of golden retrievers and golden mixes. Thanks to our members’ efforts and networking with other rescue groups, As Good as Gold has grown over the years from a local rescue group to a statewide reach, coordinating with rescues across the country including Minnesota, Arkansas, and Texas, as well as overseas. We relocate dogs from commercial breeders and work to ensure that no dog falls through the cracks. We never turn a dog away because of age or medical needs.
All of our many programs are 100% run by our team of dedicated volunteers, led by experienced volunteer leads, and overseen by the organization’s Board of Directors. Together we rescue dozens of dogs each year, both domestically and internationally, working in close partnership with many other animal rescue and welfare organizations.
We take great care in designing and managing our Dog Programs, which run along the entire continuum of dog rescue and placement within forever homes. Each program operates with a strong commitment to continuous improvement, good stewardship of the resources provided by our generous members and donors, and maximizing our charitable impact. Our goal is to provide a positive difference and good experience for everyone we work with – and especially the dogs under our care.
