This article appears in the March/April issue of “Golden Seconds” written by Cheryl Thomson.

scarlet16007 foster1“Buckeye Bound” is the nickname given to GRIN’s efforts to assist in the rescue of Golden Retrievers from the streets, forests and shelters of Istanbul, Turkey.

These names should ring a bell or is that a touchdown? GRIN decided on a theme to honor THE Ohio State University; thus the names Scarlett and Gray.

Scarlett is approximately 2- to 3-years-old. Scarlett is described as a sweet young girl. She was found by a pet-transporter in the streets of a village 100 km outside of İstanbul.  Gray has been rescued from one of the terrible shelters of İzmir. She is very sweet and young but has already given birth, probably used by breeders. She is of course spayed.

Greg BiffleThank you to the The Greg Biffle Foundation for awarding GRIN a grant to be used towards the veterinary care of our rescues. The Foundation was founded in 2005 by NASCAR driver, Greg Biffle and his wife, Nicole, to create awareness and serve as advocate to improve the well-being of animals by engaging the power and passion of the motor sports industry. We appreciate their support!

paw blackAn Urgent Plea to Ohio Residents: Ohio laws are so weak that punishment for cases of companion animal abuse and neglect are nothing more than a slap on the wrist. House Bill 274, or "Goddard's Law," continues to languish in the Ohio Senate. While the reasons behind the Senate's resistance is unclear, they have promised to hold hearings after the November elections. Passing this bill would make it a felony on the first offense to knowingly cause physical harm to a companion animal. People who do such things must be called to account for them.
