Retrieve A Golden Of Minnesota Charity Profile
Retrieve A Golden Of Minnesota, Inc. has been rescuing golden retrievers since 1985. It all started with one homeless Golden Retriever who's time was up at a shelter. Hank and Jane Nygaard took her in and after getting her spayed and all of her vaccinations they found this lucky Golden a new home. After the first golden there always seemed to be another that needed to find a home. That is how RAGOM was started. In the past, the group has existed largely due to the selflessness, generosity, energy and boundless love for golden retrievers of Jane Nygaard, Chick Myers, Agnes Rambeck, Ardis Brown and others.
An unending stream of phone calls, middle of the night "come get this dog now, or else" messages, terribly abused or neglected dogs...none of these have deterred them. Of course there are also the wonderful "happy ending" placement stories, and that is what keeps any rescue group going.
With an ever-growing group of volunteers, RAGOM has rehomed over 3,000 Golden Retrievers since 1985. We are now in a new era of RAGOM, with a dedicated effort to organize the group, expand our area and utilize all the resources of the Internet, and we hope to be able to help more dogs now than ever before!
Retrieve A Golden Of Minnesota Volunteer Information
RAGOM would not survive without the generosity and boundless energy of our volunteers. We always need volunteers who are willing to donate a few hours of their time to help with the various areas of our program. RAGOM is looking for volunteers in Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota and South Dakota. If you have a passion for Golden Retrievers, some extra time, and a heart full of love to share with these very special dogs, we want to hear from you. Even if you can't take a dog into your home we have many other opportunities for you. The rewards far outweigh the time and effort it takes to rehome these wonderful souls.
