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
     your interest in one of our Goldens.

 sPICE   12 Y Female    Available  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.
