Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Adopt a Golden Atlanta is a volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Atlanta, Georgia, and dedicated to finding warm, loving permanent homes for Golden Retrievers in order to prevent them from becoming strays or adding to the shelter overpopulation.

We anticipate our 2014 financial needs to be $550,000 - $600,000. 2013 expenses were $563,277.

Our financial goal for 2014 is to raise a minimum of $500,000 from donations, foundation, and individual donors.

AGA relies solely on donations. We also meet the requirements for corporate matching, employee giving and volunteer grant programs.

In an effort to further diversify our funding, we are pursuing a fundraising strategy that includes corporate sponsorships, on-line campaigns like GA Gives Day and the Amazon Associates Program, fundraising events like our Golden Gala, Golden Open, and Goldenrama, applications for animal rescue grants, and donations from generous family foundations and individuals both nationally and in the metro Atlanta area.

AGA does not have any paid staff. 100% of all donations are allocated directly to the rescue of Golden Retrievers.

We have over 350 active volunteers working in areas of Medical, Transportation, Foster, Applications, Adoptions, Behavioral Training, and more.

AGA does not have a facility to house each dog we take in, so all of our rescues are housed in volunteer foster homes until adoption.

Additionally, all of our dogs receive all necessary medical care i to ensure the dog is in great health at adoption. in 2013, AGA spent over $250,000 on medical care costs alone, and over $85, 000 of these expenses were spent on the medical needs of Senior Goldens, many of which remain in permanent foster homes with AGA.

Our Golden Retrievers, regardless of medical needs or age, receive comprehensive evaluations, spay/neutering services, veterinary care, behavioral training if required, and safe passage into a permanent loving home. In addition to providing those services, Adopt a Golden Atlanta is intent on educating and assisting the metropolitan Atlanta general public, and dog owners specifically, regarding issues such as responsible pet ownership, spay/neutering, obedience training, and veterinary/specialists referrals.

Additionally, AGA has a database of 4,000 supporters and 6,000 followers on Facebook.

Our fundraising and volunteer efforts, along with the sustained and committed efforts of our supporters and Board, put us precisely in the place of being self-sustaining and able to continue offering services for the long term.
