An Oregon dog rescue is reaching across the Pacific Ocean in its commitment to rescue golden retrievers in need of help, no matter where they’re located.
Golden Bond Rescue of Oregon has been working with a Taiwanese rescue to take in dogs that were taken on as puppies and then abandoned when they grew to their full size.
So far, the group has taken in 16 dogs from Taiwan, which are either in foster care or have already been adopted.
While people may ask why the rescue is taking on dogs from overseas rather than helping canines stateside, Groves says her group is dedicated to rescuing goldens no matter where they’re from.
Golden Bond Rescue works with shelters in Oregon, Washington and Idaho and takes in anywhere from 80 to 180 dogs per year; last year it took in 100. Yet the number of dogs coming into the rescue has shrunk, while the waiting list of prospective adopters continues to grow.
