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.

We invite you to become an Adopt a Golden Nashville Member and/or Medical Sponsor
Our annual membership drive is in full swing and we ask that you please consider joining the Adopt a Golden Nashville family. Due to our increasing costs of medical bills, this year we are introducing our annual medical sponsorship opportunity.
Your financial support helps us in our mission to rescue, care for and find wonderful forever families for unwanted, neglected and abandoned Golden Retrievers and Golden mixes. We've made a tremendous impact in the lives of so many Goldens and Golden mixes. Join us in 2018 and help us show even more pups just how wonderful life can be.
