Yes, I'd like to make a difference in a dog's life.

Rescue A Golden of Arizona depends on donations from our members and “Golden loving” supporters to help pay for the extensive medical expenses we incur in caring for our rescued dogs. In fact, adoption fees cover only a small portion of these veterinary costs.

Please let Golden Retrievers in need know that you want to help them. 

(Please note: Our online donations are processed by PayPal, a well known and secure payment processor, but you do not need a PayPal account. We welcome all major credit/debit cards.) 

Want to make an online donation in memory or honor of a person or pet? 

 We invite you to make a donation to RAGofAZ in honor or memory of someone dear to you, whether 2-legged or 4-legged. This is also the perfect way to mark a birthday, holiday, or other special occasion for someone dedicated to our cause.

It will be our pleasure to notify the individual you honor about your special gift.

It’s easy! Here are the steps to follow:

1. Click on the DONATE button located immediately below these instructions.

2. On the next page, enter the amount you wish to donate.

3. Click on either the “Donate with PayPal” button or the “Donate with a Card” button. A box where you can enter your honoree’s information will appear next to a paypal pencil edit icon sign (see graphic immediately below). Enter the name and address of the person or dog you wish to honor, along with an optional brief message (ex: “In loving memory of Sadie.”).

4. Enter your credit/debit card details and contact information (or log into your PayPal account if you chose that option); then, click the blue “Donate Now” button at the bottom of the page.
