Goldzilla Sponsorship

Since 1985, Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota (RAGOM) has rescued and re-homed more than 8,500 Golden Retrievers and Golden mixes throughout Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Western Wisconsin.

Evy Satie 15-313

Every dog arriving in RAGOM’s care receives medical attention. Most dogs arrive in our care healthy and require only a wellness check and vaccination updates. However, many dogs require tests, medications, expensive surgeries, and additional support, such as Evy (formerly Satie 15-313).

Evy, a special needs Golden Retriever, required around-the-clock care until her medical issues were stabilized and she found a forever family dedicated to her routine. Evy suffered from Canine Megaesophagus, a disorder where the esophagus muscles fail and cannot propel food or water into the stomach. A generous donor purchased a Bailey Chair, which positions a dog vertically while they eat and drink, so food and water can reach the stomach.

Sadly, in March 2017, her myriad medical issues landed Evy in the ICU and her family knew it was more humane to let her go. Evy’s lasting legacy to her family and everyone she encountered was “don’t sweat the small stuff and enjoy the life you have.”

RAGOM’s adoption fee is far less than the medical expenses a dog incurs. In 2016, our veterinary costs were more than $200,000. We rely on the generosity of our sponsors and donors to help cover these and other costs.

Goldzilla reaches your audience

Goldzilla is RAGOM’s largest annual fundraising event and appeals to all dog lovers, including many RAGOM adoptive families. Goldzilla is one of the biggest Golden Retriever events in the country—more than 1,200 people and 600 dogs attended in 2016, and our numbers grow every year!

Your Goldzilla sponsorship, silent auction donation, or volunteer group participation will provide great exposure to thousands of RAGOM fans and followers, Goldzilla attendees, and the greater Twin Cities metro area. TV appearances, pre-event promotions, and both digital and traditional advertising will ensure that your sponsorship reaches dog lovers across the Midwest and especially in the Minneapolis-St. Paul designated market area (DMA) with both paid and earned media.
