Rescue Goldens from Turkey

by Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue Vetted since 2014


There are an enormous number of Golden Retrievers in Turkey that are in desperate need of help. Many have been released by their owners into the woods to fend for themselves. Some have been rounded up by shelters and rescuers willing to help, but ultimately the dogs need homes. We have taken up the effort to bring as many as we can handle to our facility in the U.S. in order to treat their needs whether it be training, socialization or medical issues and ultimately to find them Forever homes.

There are somewhere upwards of 2,000 homeless Golden Retrievers in Turkey. The shelters that are taking care of them can not do this indefinitely. If we can accomplish our mission to bring as many of these beautiful dogs to the U.S. we will reduce the impact on those working so hard in Turkey and most importantly find loving Forever homes for these dogs here in the U.S.


Hopefully we can greatly reduce the number of homeless Goldens in Turkey while giving a new and better life to these dogs. Our experience to date has been a win win for all involved. The dogs we have brought over have been wonderful with great temperaments and the Golden traits we all love.

Long-Term Impact

We look forward to making many happy homes complete with the addition of a Golden adoption!
