Thank You for Your Donations & Memorials

Puppy in Human Hand To our friends who have donated in response to our rescue efforts, thank you. We are grateful for your support. We tell our puppy mill survivors every day how hundreds of humans have come to their aid and that they shouldn't judge us by the humans they knew in the mill. We also tell our other dogs that they haven't been forgotten and how many wonderful people have given to them as well. Good food, warm beds, and veterinary care are just the first phase of the journey to the Golden life for all of our dogs. We're thrilled to report that, thanks to our generous donors, tails are beginning to wag and tennis balls are being chased. Please continue to visit our web site and watch the dogs you've helped as they learn that being a dog is a good thing when humans are on your side.

Dear RAGOM, My name is Natalie and I am in 5th Grade. Nearly a year ago I adopted a dog and her name is Angel. I first saw her at PETCO, I knew right then that she was the dog for us. Anyway, my friends and I decided to have a bake sale in aid of you, my friends are called Lizzy and Caroline. We raised $54.91! We hope that you find a good use for this money. Say hi to the other dogs for Angel, please. Sincerely Natalie, Caroline, Lizzy and Angel (woof woof).
Christopher & Christine Olson, Parkers Prairie, MN
Dear RAGOM: We were touched by Peter's #09-261 story and are very excited that he will be getting his eyes fixed. It must be frustrating for him with his entropion. It will be fun for him to tear around and be a 'puppy' without the eye irritation.

Here is our second annual donation from my daughter's RAGOM fundraiser birthday party. We had a smaller group this year but even so, we raised enough to make a difference. Our family is still so in love with our Goldie - she is doing great!

My son Carter recently turned 6. We had a party and invited his friends to bring treats and toys for RAGOM foster dogs rather than for Carter. We hope the foster dogs enjoy them!
