Will you adopt to families with children?

Applicants with children under 8 years of age will not be considered. Click here for an explanation. This does not apply to adoption of puppies under 6 months of age. (Note: Puppies are not always posted on our website, as we maintain a puppy waiting list. If you are interested in a puppy, even though you don’t see any, please fill out an application. We never know when puppies will come into our program.)

What is your adoption territory?

Our service territory includes the six New England States (Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island and Connecticut), along with New York and New Jersey within the New York City Metro area. Our Mid-South territory includes West Tennessee, most of Arkansas — including Little Rock and the surrounding area — and North Mississippi — including the Jackson area. If you are interested in adopting a Golden Retriever and are out of our service territory, we recommend visiting GRCA-NRC to find a rescue near you.

What are your adoption fees?

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.
