Veterinary costs have steadily risen over the last several years, partially a result of the more intricate medical needs of the dogs MAGRR is seeing enter its program. From specialty surgeries to heartworm treatment, the average cost to treat a dog has increased significantly in recent times. Private donations fund the majority of our rescue operation; however, adoption fees offset the tremendous cost of treating the Goldens in our care. Considerable research has revealed that our fees are comparable to those of other Golden Retriever and all-breed rescues. The fee schedule can be found here.
