Our Dogs

There are typically between 25 and 35 dogs in our program at any given time – some will stay with us longer than others as they overcome their medical or behavioral challenges.  Click here to read about some of our dogs who came into our program with serious medical issues and learn how we helped them recover.

Dogs with a "Coming Soon" designation are not available but are currently in our program. The costs to run our rescue are well over $200,000 per year.  If you would consider sponsoring a dog, click here, or click on the "Sponsor Me" button on the dog's page.  If you are interested in meeting some of our available dogs, come to the next adoption event.

Referral Dogs (not in our program)

We provide listings for referral dogs as a service to the community, but we do not screen dogs to determine their suitability for adoption.  We make no representations regarding the accuracy of the information provided by the owners/fosters and we assume no responsibility for the condition or behavior of the dogs.

Fluffman is a golden retriever/chow mix.  He is approximately four years old, 75 pounds and in good health.  He is house trained and also enjoys outdoors.  He needs a fenced in yard.  Fluffman has been abused and neglected and can be timid in the presence of men, but bonds quickly with women.  While out in the back yard, he takes his guard-dog duty seriously (no squirrels may enter!) but seldom barks.  He is a typical homebody and more than anything, prefers to be home with his foster mom.  His energy level is low to moderate, and while walking around the neighborhood is not his favorite, he likes to have play dates with his foster siblings.  He is also respectful of cats.  Fluff would do best in a home without kids, another doggie playmate and a person who can help him gain trust in humans.  If you are interested in learning more about him or meeting him, please email Maja at:frytki40@gmail.com or text: 919.395.6605

Tundra is an adult male mix who was rescued after a life of neglect and malnourishment.  At the time of his rescue, he was chained to the side of the house and could not reach shelter.  His back end is paralyzed, likely from being hit by a car.  Despite that, he has no problem getting around. He loves people and any attention you can give him!

Aside from the paralyzed legs, Tundra is very normal and loves all the things other dogs love!  He can play fetch with the ball and loves to chew on bones and toys.  He greets you when you get home, naps at your feet and sleeps quietly through the night.  Tundra is starting to use a wheelchair to take walks. Everything is very new to him and he gets more comfortable each day.  Check out Tundra's video!

If Tundra might be a fit for your home, please contact trace.hoekstra@ragom.org .

NOTE: This is a courtesy post for Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota (RAGOM).  Tundra does not live in N.C., but for the right home, he can move in with you!
