Istanbul golden retrievers finding new homes in Durham and beyond
A group that rescues golden retrievers is on a mission to provide loving homes for the dogs that have fallen on hard times in Istanbul, Turkey.
Currently, The Canadian Golden Retriever Adoption Service Inc., (Golden Rescue) is running Rescue Mission of Love - Operation Istanbul.
So far, hundreds of dogs have made their way from Istanbul to Ontario thanks to the rescue’s efforts.
“We hope to bring another 40 by Christmas,” said Courtice resident Grant Gillespie.
Gillespie has been volunteering with the not-for-profit charitable organization for about six years, and has recently adopted Jewel from Istanbul.
