Southern Arizona Golden Retriever Rescue

Address:P.O. Box 70059
Oro Valley, Arizona 85737
Breeds:Golden Retriever
Notes:SAGRR is a 501C3 non-profit, all-volunteer organization, whose Mission is to rescue and re-home adoptable Golden Retrievers in Southern Arizona in safe, loving homes; thereby improving the lives of both the dog and the adoptive family. SAGRR was founded by a group of experienced volunteers in response to our belief that by limiting our territory, we can provide more individualized care to the dogs and families we work with. In addition, we feel this approach promotes a sense of community while helping the local economy. SAGRR provides a variety of after adoption opportunities to our members and volunteers. These include continuing education on dog health and training, sponsoring snake training clinics, AKC Canine Good Citizen testing, social events, and even a book club, once again providing a community for you and your rescued dog. SAGRR believes that this holistic approach to rescue results in the best lives for the dogs we rescue. We offer a safe option for owners who are forced to give up their dogs because of changing life circumstances such as relocation, financial hardship, divorce, allergies, illness, or death. We are able to give them an alternative to taking their pets to an animal shelter or humane society. We also rescue abandoned, neglected, and even abused Golden Retrievers from shelters throughout Southern Arizona.
