The Magrr Foundation: Bridging Hope for Animal Rescues

Memphis, Tenn. (February 7, 2024) — It is with great excitement and heartfelt commitment that Memphis Area Golden Retriever Rescue, a renowned Golden Retriever rescue for 22 years, announces its transformation into the Magrr Foundation. This strategic evolution marks a significant milestone in the organization’s journey, as it seeks to expand its mission and impact.

Founded in 2001, Memphis Area Golden Retriever Rescue dedicated more than two decades to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of Golden Retrievers in need. The rescue’s unwavering commitment saved countless lives, provided loving homes to more than 2,500 furry companions, and created a legacy of compassion.

The newly established Magrr Foundation will build upon this legacy, transitioning its focus from direct rescue efforts to a broader mission of supporting and uplifting animal rescue organizations. The Foundation’s primary goal is to endow grants to these organizations, ensuring they have the necessary resources to continue their vital work. Information for grant seekers will be forthcoming.

The Board of the Magrr Foundation stated, “We believe that by empowering other animal rescue organizations throughout our region and beyond, we can multiply the positive impact we’ve had on the lives of animals and the communities we serve. Our mission is to be a beacon of hope and support for those on the frontlines of animal rescue.”

The Magrr Foundation invites the community, philanthropists, and animal lovers alike to join hands in this noble endeavor. Donations and partnerships will be critical to the success of the Magrr Foundation as it works toward making a lasting difference in the lives of animals and those who care for them.
