AGK has two major fundraising events each year:  Goldens in the Park is held in June, and Barktoberfest is held in October.  These two events are dog and child friendly and allow us to gather in community with other golden lovers while raising much needed funds!  Some of our goldens come to us with significant medical and training needs from years of neglect or abuse, and the proceeds from these events help cover the medical and training costs.  We always need silent auction items and volunteers for these events and welcome your help – just send an email to and let us know how you would like to be involved.  Information about sponsorship opportunities will be available ahead of each of these events. 

Meet & Greets give people an opportunity to meet some of our orphan goldens and ask questions about the dogs and the adoption process.  Dates, times, and locations for Meet and Greet events will be listed on our website when available.

We also participate in community events each year that help raise funds for AGK and awareness of our mission in the community.

for Thursday, June 6!

Meet and Greet events are an opportunity for people to meet AGK volunteers and some of our dogs and ask questions about the adoption process and the rescue.  Please join us if you have you thought about adopting, volunteering or fostering.  Or want to meet some of our volunteers and dogs.  Have questions about the adoption process?  Hope to see you there!
