“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.
MEET SCARLETT AND GRAY
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.
Golden Retrievers In Need loves their Goldens and we have learned that love has no borders. These dogs from Turkey deserve a second chance to have a wonderful life and who better to put them in loving homes in our area but GRIN?
If you are interested in learning more about the Turkey dogs, please see the complete article on the website and be sure to follow their journey on the “Adoptable Goldens” pages.

Thank you to the The Greg Biffle Foundation for awarding GRIN a grant to be used towards the veterinary care of our rescues.

We appreciate their support!
