Last August we got the best 35th anniversary gift we could ask for. RAGofAZ had the “Phoenix Lost Dog” available for us if we were willing to provide him his forever home. Of course we said “YES” since we had lost our previous RAGofAZ Golden named King to cancer in May of 2016 and our house felt empty.
My name is Jasper and I’m forever grateful to RAGofAZ. I was found by Pinal County Animal Control wandering in the desert with a pack of dogs. RAGofAZ came and rescued me. It was hard at my foster’s home. I’d never been in a car or a house, and the sound of the refrigerator scared me.
Henley is truly what rescue is about.
Henley came to us in February from El Paso where he was thrown from a moving car and a Good Samaritan took him to the shelter. Months later he had an emergency splenectomy and it was uncertain if he was going to pull through the surgery.
Gabby lived in a birthing cage for over three years and came into rescue in January 2016 as a special needs gal—a yeast infection, female issues, fleas, Ichthyosis, Giardia, and no current shots. She never walked on a leash, chewed a bone, or played with
a toy or ball, and was afraid to be alone.
BEAR & LOLA
Bear & Lola came into our family in November 2016. They were a “Senior Golden Couple” who needed a good home and we were a family that needed some “Goldens.” We had been without a Golden Retriever for a year. It was incredible how much love Bear & Lola immediately brought into our household.
TEDDY – SPECIAL NEEDS
Teddy’s story begins, sadly, at a shelter where he had been abandoned as a wobbly, weak senior with multiple medical challenges. A skinny, older, red Golden, Teddy came into rescue with Tick Fever, chronic and devastating nosebleeds, hypertension, kidney issues, hip dysplasia, and liver problems. He had lost half of his once thick coat . . . and seemed embarrassed by his patchy, scalped appearance.
I’m Lucy and here’s my Golden story. I was surrendered to RAGofAZ by my first mom because she realized that she didn’t have time for me. She loved me enough to want me to have a good life. But because I was left alone a lot as a young dog, I don’t like to be by myself. Thank goodness my forever home already had a Golden named Makana.
Abby became part of our family, and seventh Golden, in December 2014. She had been a stray who followed some children home from school. However, that family was unable to keep her and contacted RAGofAZ. That was our lucky day, as we had been on the waiting list for a while.
Here is my story... I first came to Rescue a Golden as a lost pup wandering in Goodyear, AZ. A nice lady took me home and posted fliers to try and find my family. Guess I was meant to go to a different family as some wonderful folks from RAGofAZ came to rescue me and help me find my new forever home.
Maddie, her name means sweet, joyful, loving and a need to serve humanity. This truly describes my girl who was found abandoned and starving with six new mouths to feed. Thanks to some very special guardian angels and RAGofAZ, seven beautiful dogs are in loving homes.
People say I’m a VIP. I’m not sure why, or what that means, because my name is Walter, aka Sir Walter of Scottsdale. I’ve heard lots of other things: Loving, friendly, gentle, and old soul. Expressive eyes, too. Oh, and my favorite – big paws! I was rescued by RAGofAZ and went to my forever home in Scottsdale where I got new friends, Lilly, Teddy, Beau and Bailey.
Bella here…. Yes, I had a rough beginning, but now I’m living the Golden life with my best Golden buddy, Sedona, and my forever loving and caring Mom. I was discovered to have diabetes and Valley Fever when I was rescued. After many, many trips to the vet to check my blood sugar, everyone tells me I’m getting adjusted to these pricks, which is every time I eat, but that’s okay as long as I’m eating!
Welcome to the season of wonder.
Our “Wild Wilma” came to us as a belated Christmas gift. She had spent her first three years as a “back-yard” dog where she’d bonded with a friendly Lab. However, both dogs were eventually surrendered to different rescues, which meant Wilma had to bid a sad farewell to her buddy.
