What is Operation Turkey Goldens?
Imagine being a beautiful 8-week-old Golden Retriever puppy going to your new family in Turkey - smiling children, playtime, good food and a soft spot to lay your head. Then imagine you are a one-year-old Golden going for a ride in the car only to find yourself dumped because you became a large dog and are no longer the status symbol you were once thought to be. You are faced with life on the streets, scrounging for food & water, being hit by cars, burned by cigarettes, kicked and yelled at while slowly becoming ill and emaciated, or being tossed in the forests where you are attacked by feral dog packs only to die a slow, painful death. G.R.E.A.T. Rescue of NE Florida, Inc., in addition to continuing to rescue all Golden Retrievers/Golden mixes locally, instituted Operation Turkey Goldens to help bring displaced Goldens to the United States. In 2016, GREAT had the honor of bringing nine beautiful Golden Retrievers to safety and freedom, and plans are in process to do so again in late 2017.
How can you help?
The major expense of this mission is costly transport fees so we are asking you to extend a hand in helping GREAT Rescue bring more Goldens to the United States by donating to our cause or better still, become a team member and raise funds for Operation Turkey Goldens. Every dollar helps and you will be part of giving these beautiful Turkey Goldens a GREAT Second Chance. The more dollars raised, the more Goldens can be saved!
