Operation Turkey Goldens Update
October 01, 2016

$7134.09 total from all sources raised to date! Enough to bring over FOUR Goldens from Turkey later this month! A GREAT big thanks to all who  See more

THE STORY:

We had the amazing experience of bringing three beautiful Goldens, Flora, Sabal and Jax, from Turkey earlier this year and are hoping to do the same in the Fall. The Golden Retrievers are taken to Turkey as puppies where they are considered a status symbol but when they become adults, they are no longer wanted and are dumped in the forests, on the streets or in one of 32 animal shelters in Istanbul where they are spayed/neutered and then turned back out to fend for themselves. Golden Retrievers are not fighters so their life is very difficult with no food or water source - they must scavenge, fight off feral dog packs and try to navigate the traffic without being hit. Most do not live beyond two or three years of age. Unfortunately, Jax was hit by a car, suffered a broken pelvis, dislocated femur and broken tooth. He healed by himself, alone, on the streets. Now he is safely with GREAT Rescue, his medical needs have been met and he’s the happy-go-lucky beautiful Golden Retriever he was always meant to be. It is very costly to transport each dog from Turkey so we are asking you to extend a hand in helping GREAT bring three more Golden Retrievers from Turkey in the Fall. Every dollar helps!
