Golden Retrievers in Cyberspace

Welcome to RagTag Golden Retriever Rescue, Vermont's own golden retriever rescue since 1995.

What we do:

  • We work to rehome golden retriever (or retriever mixes) to new homes in Vermont
  • We work with abused or neglected goldens until they are ready to go on to their new home.
  • If you are interested in getting a dog, please go to our FAQ.
  • If you know of a dog that needs help, or have a dog to place through rescue, please contact us.

What we don't do:

  • We don't breed... so we rarely see puppies, and when we do see them, they're usually badly damaged. Please read our FAQ for tips on choosing a breeder, if you're looking for a puppy. (FAQ)
  • We don't turn a profit! This isn't a business, it is an all volunteer effort and run out of our paychecks. Consequently:
    • Your phone calls may not be returned in what you consider a timely manner, or returned at all if they are long distance. Please begin "talking" to us through email.
    • Email demanding "what do you have available" is usually ignored. We place dogs on a one-to-one basis. If we don't have an application from you, we don't know what dog might be a good match for you. And we're not going to waste our time guessing. We urge you to read the FAQ and then fill out the application.
    • We wish we could, but we can't pay the vet bills of a dog that isn't turned into rescue.
    • We do not take phone calls after 8:30 pm.
