Abbey is a 3 year old female that was abandoned in Cairo, Egypt. Unfortunately, so many Goldens like Abbey are neglected, abused or abandoned in places like Cairo and Istanbul. But the caring volunteers in Cairo have been providing food and shelter and she is flying to Toronto very soon, thanks to Golden Rescue!  

I'm so excited for Abbey's arrival at Pearson Airport. I've been a little lost without a Golden at my side ever since my lovely 12 year old Cyber passed last summer.  A dog's love is just so precious - unconditional, constant and uber-loyal.  I applied to adopt a Golden a few months ago and the anticipation has been building.  I'm told Abbey has a sweet nature and loves people and other dogs. She has not yet been spayed.  

I can't wait to welcome her to Canada. She even has her own passport with all her info about her shots. 

I'll keep you posted on Abbey's journey. :)





About Golden Rescue

Golden Rescue has really opened my eyes to a big problem.  

There are so many dogs being neglected, abused and abandoned.  Because Golden Retrievers are such a lovable breed, they often get overbred and owners who wanted that cute puppy, often can't handle the care they need as they grow or they simply can't have a pet due to life changes.  And unrest in countries abroad like Turkey, Egypt and Mexico leave many goldens abandoned, in need of a new family.  

Golden Rescue gives Goldens in need a second chance.  They rescue abandoned or displaced  Goldens domestically and abroad and help them find their forever families. 

This year, more than ever before, thanks to COVID, many Canadians would LOVE to have a Golden in their family but adoption requests are way up and it can be difficult to find a dog to adopt. 

Rescues are happening right now, but there are so many more that need rescuing!

Wanna be a real hero and help your fellow Canadians out?  Make a donation today to help support this worthy cause. You'll be SO glad you did.  

Won’t you help give a Golden a second chance ?
