My name is Abby CT and I’ve been told that I am a big star now that I’m the very first Orphan of the Month for 2013! What a treat! I’ll tell you a little bit about myself. I just turned 9 years old and I love taking walks and going on car rides! As you can see from my video, I love to play, too.
When AGA rescued me, I was living in Connecticut – that’s where the CT in my name comes from! My family was going to put me down because no rescue in the Northeast would take me. I am so grateful that AGA came to the rescue and brought me to Atlanta!
Now that I’m here in Atlanta and loving your mild winter weather (no more snow!?), I am on the hunt for a forever family in a calm home to call my own. I really like people in general, but especially love belonging to one person. I hope you can come out this Sunday to our Adoption Day and meet me and all the other AGA Orphans!
Several of you have asked for an update on the Golden Girls, Yogi age 11 and Boo Boo age 12, the emaciated seniors that were found abandoned in a basement without food or water for weeks. After being rehabilitated … Continue reading →
Woof! from Atlanta. The weather is perfect for lots of ball-chasing and long walks! I’ve been a very lucky dog enjoying these past few years with my owner and it is all thanks to Adopt a Golden Atlanta. Did you know they are the second-largest golden retriever rescue in the country? Just this year, Adopt a Golden Atlanta has saved nearly 300 dogs! That means more goldens are enjoying the holidays with a new family, enjoying holiday parties, dressing up in Santa outfits and cuddling by the fire. Sounds like the “Golden Life” to me!
It wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for all the generous people who donated to Adopt a Golden Atlanta. Besides rescuing goldens, the donations helped provide $900 per dog in medical care, giving my pals needed surgeries and treatments so they could play in their backyards again.
Santa, this year I don’t want a big bone or squeaky stuffed animal, I just want people to continue their support and honor a dog lover with a gift in their name. By giving to Adopt a Golden Atlanta this year, donors will have their gift posted on the “In Honor” page on the website and they’ll send an email acknowledgement to the person chosen. When my owner makes a donation, my name is displayed on the website so all my golden friends can see it!
I hope you spread the holiday cheer to all of Adopt a Golden’s supporters this season!
My name is Tricia and this is my best friend Chuckie, we’re a pair of AGA orphans looking to be adopted by a family this holiday season. We’ve been together our whole life and must stay that way- but we still like to have our own bowls, toys, and beds.
I’m the socialite of the pair, always affectionate, while Chuckie is shy and easy going. He could stand to gain a few more pounds, and I’m a full bodied girl.
We want a family who will treat us to the simple things in life: walks, car rides, and naps at home… just like what our owner taught us. He grew too old to take care of us, so although we miss him and his loving care, we know AGA has the perfect family to take us in! We come from South Carolina and are ready to charm someone this holiday season!
My name is Amy and I’m so excited to be featured as the December Orphan of the Month! I wanted to share some information about me… I hope you’ll come visit this Sunday at the December Adoption Day!
I’m a seven year-old girl Golden looking for a family who will give me lots of attention. I’m a little scared of other animals and get nervous when I’m left alone at times, but I’m great with people- especially kids. I love to play fetch and run around, my energy is sure to brighten your day!
I hope to see you this Sunday! I’m the perfect holiday gift for someone who wants a Golden!
