Volunteers Make the Difference!
Because As Good as Gold is a non-profit, volunteer-supported organization, every activity requires volunteer participation. Members can volunteer to open their home by fostering a rescued golden retriever waiting to be adopted, transport dogs, perform home visits for potential adoptive families, participate in public education and fundraising events, work on administrative activities, join a committee or department as an assistant, make phone calls for various coordinators, or even put a special talent, such as sewing to great use!
Dog Sitting Program
Over the years, we have found that many of our members are often hard-pressed to go away for a weekend, a long weekend or a week’s vacation for lack of appropriate care for their dogs. As an alternative to impersonal kennel boarding and expensive in-home pet sitting services, As Good as Gold is pleased to offer our Dog Sitting Service.
The AGaG Dog Sitting Service has been designed to provide short term (1 day to 2 weeks), personal care for your dog(s) in the home of one of our AGaG members. This service is provided by AGaG members to AGaG members and all proceeds will benefit As Good as Gold.

Urgent – Foster Homes Needed
We receive multiple calls on a daily basis from individuals and shelters who want to relinquish their golden retrievers to us. Since we do not kennel or board any of our goldens, a strong foundation of foster homes is vital to our success.
Our organization is growing quickly and we are always in need of additional foster homes for our goldens!
Without the generosity and concern of our foster families, who open their hearts and their homes to these helpless dogs, our organization and many of these goldens would cease to exist. If you, or anyone that you know, might be interested in becoming a foster home for As Good As Gold, please contact our Membership Coordinator via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
