Yearly membership dues are $25 for a Single or $40 for a Household. Membership benefits include subscription to our quarterly newsletter, notification of upcoming local events and information of interest to dog owners, the opportunity to attend AGR-sponsored activities, member discounts on some of our merchandise, the opportunity to participate in the annual election of officers, access to meeting Minutes and financial status reports, and a good feeling when you help support AGR’s efforts to find loving homes for needy Goldens and Golden-mix dogs. Application forms can be obtained by calling or e-mailing us or downloading one from our website. Anyone who desires to foster or adopt a dog from AGR must become a member.

Members are encouraged to help with any of the various committees: Intake, Shelter Walking, Transport, Home Evaluations, Placement, Follow-up, Health Care, Membership and Fundraising. We also occasionally need help from families willing to foster a dog. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us.

 Some of our members belong to the Golden Retriever Club of America. We cooperate with Maricopa Animal Care and Control Services, Pima Animal Control, the Arizona Animal Welfare League, the Arizona Humane Society, and other shelters around the state. Some of our members also belong to the Companion Animal Association of Arizona, Therapy Dogs International, Inc. or are Delta Society Pet Partners.
