Hi Everyone,

As some may know I had my own dog for 18.5 years and now he is no longer on this side of the world with us. In his memory, I will begin to rescue animals from abroad when I can. Currently, there is a family of 5 in desperate need. They are located in Turkey.

I am in the process of transporting them from the city they are currently at to Istanbul, Turkey. The amount of money I am raising right now will cover the kennel/carrier cost that will be the same ones used to transport to the US. It will cover the flight from their current city to Istanbul AND the boarding facility they will be able to rest at for 30 Days.

The steps moving forward is to have them vaccinated, find a flight volunteer (person who will be traveling to the US from Turkey), and paying their flight tickets.
That is not going to be covered with the fund that are currently being raised.

Once they arrive to the US I will be fostering them and searching a forever home for the puppies, with the help of my veterinarian cousin in PA. Let’s make this happen y’all.

Please understand that the people in Turkey have many animals they are helping. So any funds you donate to them is not directly to one animal, it is to the one with the most needs. That is why I created this GoFund because I will be making sure they get to the US asap!!
