Mission Statement

Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota's (RAGOM) mission is to rescue and rehome unwanted, abused, neglected and displaced Golden Retrievers and Golden Retriever mixes, and locate permanent homes for them. We advocate responsible pet ownership and support animal abuse and neglect prevention programs, as well as spay/neuter initiatives.

Description

WHO WE ARE:

Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota (RAGOM) is a volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Active operations are concentrated in Minnesota, Iowa, North and South Dakota and western Wisconsin.In cooperation with other rescues, RAGOM facilitates adoptions outside our operational territory if there are no adoptive families matching a particular rescued dog’s needs within our service area.

HOW WE CARE FOR DOGS:

Rescued dogs receive comprehensive medical care including a complete veterinary exam, updated vaccinations and a microchip, and each is spayed or neutered prior to adoption. While in RAGOM’s care, dogs live as part of a family in loving foster homes where they are fed, groomed, socialized, and begin to learn basic manners. Foster families provide ongoing temperament assessment for each dog to determine what qualities should be present in an ideal forever home, and then match the dog with an approved adoptive family.

I've been a volunteer since 2011. I am continually inspired by the passion i see in the volunteers. There are countless stories of those who go above and beyond in their roles. There are many ways to get involved, roles that involve hands-on with the dogs or roles with no hands-on but are equally critical in the process of rescuing and rehoming.

Spoke with the volunteer manager and went through an onboarding process, and the never heard back. I gave specific suggestions and discussed how I could be of assistance, so it's discouraging to never hear back after such a detailed discussion. I wish this organization all the best!
