Adopt a Golden Nashville is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the rescue, care, evaluation and placement of abandoned or unwanted golden retrievers. Our mission is to promote the understanding,appreciation and care of canines among the general public through education about responsible pet ownership. We endeavor to raise awareness regarding the extraordinary unwanted pet population, and do our part to decrease it.



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.
