Spring 2016 Turkey Dog Mission

This spring, RAGOM is eager to welcome some special deliveries into our care. Up to 17 rescued Golden Retrievers will arrive from the country of Turkey.

For the dogs, it will be an extraordinary life-changing journey. In Turkey, there are over 100,000 stray dogs in the city of Istanbul, living in municipal shelters, city streets, and in the forests, where they struggle for food and shelter. Approximately 1,000 of these are Golden Retrievers. Last October, we successfully rescued 15 Turkish dogs, and found loving homes for them. We feel compelled by our mission and our hearts to go back for more.

This is quite an undertaking for us. Three RAGOM volunteers are traveling at their own expense to Turkey in March and April. They will return with up to 8 dogs. In early April, an estimated 9 more will travel to America on a special climate-controlled cargo plane. It will cost over $20,000 to get the dogs here.

Please support our mission by making a donation.  Together we can make a difference!
