RustyDear GRIN Family & Friends,

Adorable little Rusty began displaying symptoms of lethargy and weight loss, and he was diagnosed with a potential liver shunt based on blood work.  His owners were unable to afford the testing, surgery and care required, therefore the family made the painful decision to relinquish him to GRIN so he could live a normal life.

Superheroes2Many THANKS to all who attended and had a HOWLING good time!

We had 57 humans and 36 canines attend our Howl O Ween Party and Pasta dinner this past Sunday. The cool fall breeze with a sunny blue sky was perfect. We had of the best group of costumes we've ever seen for both humans and canines. This was a very imaginative group and the judges had a very difficult time selecting the winners. We had some fierce treat stacking for humans and the dogs enjoyed bobbing for hot dogs in the kiddie pools and performing a trick for treats at the various doggie stations.

The Chinese Auction items were fabulous and our own Sr. Mary won the Love Rocks raffle. It's ironic since Sr. Mary picked it up and brought it to the event and then took it back home! We are grateful to our membership and friends support helping us add almost $1,500 to our Treasury. For more information, please contact: development@grinrescue.org

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.
