Operation BuckeyeFor hundreds of years, homeless dogs have been a part of the Turkish environment. Estimates for the numbers of street and shelter dogs in Istanbul alone vary greatly – anywhere from 50,000-100,000. Among these dogs, approximately 500-1000 are abandoned Golden Retrievers. A concerned American living in Istanbul noticed all the Goldens running the streets and in municipal shelters and contacted Adopt A Golden of Atlanta (AGA) asking for help. In tandem, they worked to implement the rescue of these Goldens. The first flight arrived on May 9, 2015, and was the largest international rescue of Golden Retrievers ever. 

GRIN, just like many other Golden rescues in the country, has seen a steady decline over the last several years in the number of dogs being surrendered. At the same time, the number of families willing to open up their homes and their hearts to this wonderful breed has not declined. Learning that there were so many Goldens waiting for their turn to come to America, GRIN reached out to AGA to help in the effort. To date there are over thirty rescue organizations in America involved and over 500 unwanted, abused, neglected and displaced Golden Retrievers from Turkey have been placed in loving, permanent homes here in America.

Open AdoptionsWe are hosting "Open Adoptions" at our remaining events this year to fund our rescue of 8 Turkey dogs at the end of September and other opportunities to save Golden Retrievers.   These long distance efforts will not impact our commitment to the Goldens within our service area who are in need of our help. All of the Golden Rescues in the US are faced with more adopters willing to open their hearts and homes to a rescued Golden then Goldens who are available. We believe "Love has no borders" and every Golden regardless of age or condition are deserving of a second chance in life.
