Adopt a Golden Nashville originated in 1998 as Middle Tennessee Golden Retriever Rescue (MTGRR) with a handful of volunteers dedicated to saving the lives of Golden Retrievers in need. Since then, AGN has rescued and found homes for approximately 3,000 Golden Retrievers and Golden mixes. Today we take in approximately 200 Goldens per year with our vet bills averaging $75,000-$95,000 per year.


The 2018 Great Golden Gathering will be held on Sunday, October 7 from 1-4 PM at Edwin Warner Park!

Join us for the biggest Golden party of the year! More details to come soon.
