Goldzilla Sponsorship

Since 1985, Retrieve a Golden of the Midwest (RAGOM) has rescued and re-homed more than 9,000 Golden Retrievers and Golden mixes throughout Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Western Wisconsin.

Every RAGOM dog receives medical attention. Many arrive healthy and require only a wellness check and vaccinations. But others require extensive testing, medications, and/or surgeries, including dogs like Levi 21-002.

A breeder asked us to take in a puppy that no one wanted to buy. The puppy had trouble walking.

When he arrived in our care, we were hopeful that something could be done. Levi has so much joy for life, and an incredible amount of determination. But a veterinary exam determined that nothing could be done to restore Levi’s use of his legs.

Levi has been fitted for a wheelchair and is in the care of a loving foster family. Dogs with disabilities tend to be in our care for a long time, and the cost of Levi’s care will quickly climb.

RAGOM’s adoption fee is far less than the medical expenses a dog incurs. 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 2019, 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.
