Imagine a plane full of golden retrievers...

Posted on

A group from Ontario, Canada, are flying stray Golden Retrievers from Turkey and pairing them with new homes in Canada.

After meeting hundreds of stray retrievers, a partnership was created between the Ontario-based operation and rescue shelters in Istanbul.

Since December 2015, Golden Rescue have brought 22 dogs into Canada and plan to bring 16-to-20 dogs per month.

Speaking to CBC news, Golden Retrievers are particularly populous among Istanbul's strays as many are left after they grow out of being puppies.
