meet our goldens

"Rescue dogs aren't broken, they've simply experienced more life than other dogs.  If they were human, we would call them wise.  They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write, the ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage.  Don't pity a rescue dog. Adopt One. And be proud to have their greatness by your side."

If you are interested in meeting one of our goldens, there are a few things you need to do first.

1.  Fill out an application online or download an application today.  
2.  Email Adoptions (adoptions@azgrc.org) to contact our adoptions coordinator about

 nick   10+ Y Male    Medical Hold  Contact #12-17

nickIf there is a song to describe Nick, it would be “I will survive.” Nick was dumped in a remote shelter in Taiwan before he was rescued by our sister organization in Taiwan. He was skinny, had heartworms and ehrlichia. Nick is almost completely blind and has limited hearing but is one of the happiest dogs in the world. He waited over a year to come to America and now that he is here, he is living life large. He has learned to navigate his house and yard. He responds very well to clapping and will come right over to see what you need.

Mature Older Lady Seeks Companion

rileyTired of those long lonely days and nights? Does your cat need a friend? Do you require supervision in the bathroom? If you answered yes to any of the above, Riley may be the girl for you.

Riley’s holidays got off to a bumpy start. She was dumped at the shelter with a large bleeding mass. Riley had surgery to remove the masses on her body and is recuperating at her foster mom’s house. Thanks to her AZGRC angels she has rung in the New Year with a renewed zest for life.

She is very gentle and affectionate, a genuine cuddle buddy with a true Golden heart. She loves people and gets along well with other dogs and cats, but could be just as happy as an only child. She prefers to snuggle by the fire rather than playing with toys or engaging in horseplay. She doesn’t show an interest in getting on the furniture, but loves her dog beds. She is completely housebroken and sleeps through the night. At 12, Riley isn’t extremely active preferring quiet nights at home to long walks on the beach, and would do best in a quiet household.

 mira   8 Y Female    Adoption Pending  Contact #11-17

mireMira was found wandering in the woods up in the mountains of Taiwan. She was found by some hikers and rescued. She was very skinny. Our sister rescue in Taiwan, took good care of Mira and when she was healthy, they arranged her transport to America. Mira is a smaller Golden Retriever with a big Golden Retriever personality. She breezed into her foster home like she had lived there her whole life. Mira’s favorite room in the house is the kitchen, where she often takes a nap so that she can be ready in case a piece of food would drop on the floor.

 sPICE   12 Y Female    Adoption Pending  Contact #01-17

spiceHi, my name is Spice and I consider myself one very lucky dog.  My owner passed away and I was taken to the shelter, where the family that turned me in, said I was old, had a tumor and to just put me to sleep. I heard that and thought, “WHAT? I have a lot of life to live and a whole lot of love to still give.” Fortunately, the shelter called Arizona Golden Retriever Connection. AZGRC’s shelter volunteer flew down to the shelter. Well, she took one look at my extremely long toenails, the big open tumor on my leg, my not-so-Golden Retriever ears and then she looked in my eyes. I walked out of the shelter and into my new life. My toenails were trimmed and I can walk so much better. The tumor is gone and my leg is almost healed. But my ears still stand up. My foster Mom say I am the sweetest dog in the world. I like to go for walks.  Mainly I just like to hang out and be a part of your life.

If you would like to spice up your life, then I am the perfect girl for you.
