Rescue A Golden of AZ (RAGofAZ) serves the state of Arizona. We will adopt to any area within the state where we can do a home visit by a trusted volunteer.

Foster/Adopter Application Form

A nonrefundable, tax deductible $25.00 application processing fee is required to submit a Foster/Adopt Application Form. An application for adoption is not meant for any particular dog, as dogs are placed after review of all applications and home evaluations to make sure that the best suited home for the dog is selected.

Upon submission of the Foster/Adopter Application, you will be taken to a payment page where you can pay the $25.00 fee via credit card, PayPal, or you can mail a check with “Adoption Application Fee” in the memo section in the amount of $25.00 to:

P.O. Box 71987
Phoenix, AZ 85050

RAGofAZ cannot predict the length of time it will take to place a dog in your home, nor does it guarantee that a dog that matches your request will become available.

Complete the form below the best you can.

Training Your Golden


I/we am/are at least 21 years of age. All of the information I/we have given is true and complete. I/we understand that Rescue A Golden of Arizona has the right to refuse my/our application.

I/we understand that while in foster care, RAGofAZ has sole ownership of the dog. Furthermore, if for any reason the adopter can no longer care for the dog, it must by law be returned to Rescue A Golden of Arizona. RAGofAZ retains the right to reclaim any foster or adopted Golden if the Board of Directors feels that doing so is in the dog’s best interest.

I/we understand that I/we must pay the adoption fee by check or credit card at the time the rescued dog is delivered to my/our home. If, after a 21-day settling-in period, I/we choose not to adopt this dog, I/we understand that the adoption fee will either be refunded or will be applied towards the adoption of another RAGofAZ rescue.

I/We understand that the $25.00 fee is for application processing and is not applied toward the adoption fee.

The Foster/Adopter process will not begin until after the application processing fee is received. Thank You!

I/We also understand that the application processing fee is separate from the membership fee.

Once you are selected and called to foster a dog, you are required at that time to become a RAGofAZ member.

Once you are called and notified that we have found the right dog for you, at the time the dog is delivered you are required to become a RAGofAZ member.
