Poncho

February 17th update:

Poncho was in a home and they threw him away.  It’s a shame they think dogs are garbage but when they come from a home and are tossed out they are really lost and depressed.

Here are some photos of Poncho, now known as Diego, as he leaves Guadalajara to start his new life in Arizona.

Title Security Agency Chooses Rescue A Golden of Arizona As its “A Token of our Appreciation” Program Recipient 4th Quarter of 2015

 


Title Security picTricia Hooper, one of our long time, dedicated volunteers works at Title Security Agency in Tucson. They have a program called “A Token of our Appreciation” to recognize organizations for their loyalty and support of the community.

Each quarter, three charities are chosen and their customers are invited to deposit a token in one of the three jars representing each charity. Each token represents a monetary donation by TSA.

On Feb 18th, Scottie McGowan, Director of Golden Rescue, was presented a check for $495 representing our portion of TSA charitable donations for the 4th quarter of 2015.

With deepest gratitude, Rescue A Golden of Arizona thanks Tricia Hooper for nominating us and for the support of TSA in rescuing Golden Retrievers.

 Learn more at 4k9solutions.com. From the website: "I have been working with bird dogs from the age of fifteen and this is by far the safest and closest to the real thing that you and your dog will ever encounter without being bit! We train by scent, sight and then the sound of the rattler often turning your dog into an early warning indicator if a Rattlesnake is nearby. But most importantly possibly saving your dog's life.

Please bring water for you and your dogs. There will be a bathroom inside the family ranch house so please be respectful. Please clean up after yourself and your dogs. If your dog is dog aggressive or reactive please keep them off to your own space until it is your turn. If your dog is people aggressive or collar sensitive or aggressive please tell Jay. Please bring a camp chair or something to sit on as Jay will put you and your dogs through a few different tests to make sure that your dog responds to the training. If you are afraid of snakes please tell Jay that you need help as we like to get you involved in your dog's training so that you get the full effect of what your dog will act like after encountering a Rattlesnake. If your dog has any medical problems, please tell Jay ahead of time. If everything goes smoothly Jay will get you out of there early, so please arrive early!"


 Directions: 83rd Ave to Pinnacle Peak. East on Pinnacle Peak to 77th Ave. North on 77th Ave. to security gate and go all of the way to the cattle guard and go right to the ranch house.
