I can't say enough about the lengths the people in this group go to in order to help Goldens in need. I adopted a dog from them and was impressed by their professional processes and immediately volunteered. (Source: greatnonprofits.org)

I have adopted 2 dogs from AGA, and am also a volunteer. I have been involved with AGA since day one and can honestly say it’s been a privilege to work with this organization, and the most rewarding volunteer work I’ve ever done. The leadership of AGA has been rock steady since day one, and has thankfully run this non-profit like a successful business, which means that there are policies and procedures that guide the volunteers and adopters. These policies and procedures are not onerous, but help guide everyone to keep the best interest of the dogs in mind at all times. AGA really does make an incredible effort to place dogs in their “forever” homes. A lucky golden retriever is one that gets into this program, because if it takes a week or a year, AGA will find a good home for every dog they take into their program. Their contract requires that if for whatever reason the adoption doesn’t work out, the dog MUST be returned to AGA—the ultimate protection for the dogs. The foster program insures that dog savy people have lived with these dogs and can insure that a good “match” is made between the dog and their new family. AGA is there for adopters after the dog goes home, happy to help with transition questions, training and the like. Incredibly, this is an all volunteer organization, and it speaks volumes to see the same volunteers year after year supporting this organization. It has been a pleasure to watch AGA grow into such a successful organization. The leadership should be very proud, as most volunteers are incredibly proud to be part of this organization.

I have known about Adopt A Golden Atlanta for more than 5 years now. My experience with them started when my sister-in-law had lost her golden to cancer and the family was finally ready for to add a furry member. We attended an Adoption Day Event and were amazed at how organized and knowledgeable the volunteers were. She ended up adopting from AGA. Next, my co-worker adopted a senior golden from AGA. She would bring Buddy to the office and talk so positively about her experience with AGA. Wanting to help the cause, I began volunteering at Adoption Day events and helped screen applicants. Then, as we lost our senior dogs, we turned to AGA to help us find a new family member. The fosters were wonderful to work with - giving us not just the "selling points" of the dogs we were meeting, but also telling us about any special needs that he/she might have. We adopted our current 11 year old male golden 3 years ago and our 3 year old female golden 2 years ago. (Source: greatnonprofits.org)

I was looking for a golden to come into my family's life when I stumbled upon Adopt A Golden's website back in 2007. We went to adoption day and the tremedous amount of volunteers that explained what their goal was stole my family's heart. After going through the adoption process with our Cabot and realized that this organization truly believed in what they said. We have never been happier with Adopt A Golden and all their goldens are well taken care of when they come into their system. We now have 2 goldens in our home and 1 Great Pyranees. All of them have been rescues from Adopt AGolden Atlanta. A couple of years back AGA realized that there were Great Pyranees that needed rescuing and started helping them also until last year when they found a person that wanted to start a rescue for them. Now through my newsletter's from them and volunteering for them ,Adopt A golden Atlanta has saved Goldens all through out the southeast. They truly have the foundation and people who love these dogs as much as my family does. I will be indebted to them for bringing such inspiration to my 3 children,who truly love everyone of my other 3 kids(goldens and great pyranees). Second chances really happen for their goldens that are brought into the system!! (Source: greatnonprofits.org)

My role is one of "quality control", following up on adoptions. AGA does not end its interest when an adopter walks out the door with a dog. I am part of a team that contacts the new owner @ 30 days after the adoption to be certain that health, behavior, and overall match of dog to family are optimal. We seek feedback on the general experience and process in an effort to make improvements that will help in our mission. (Source: greatnonprofits.org)

I have been an active volunteer with AGA for 6 of their 7 years. I have adopted 4 Goldens of the 30 or so i have fostered, and currently serve on the Intake team. AGA rescues dogs from shelters and also owner surrenders. They respond quickly to help the dogs, but take their time in finding the perfect home for the dogs and the best match for the human adopters. AGA is constantly fundraising and spent over a quarter of a million dollars on medical bills for the Goldens last year. I have never worked with such a professional caring bunch of volunteers.
