International Mission of Love

International Mission of Love

Some people have asked us what the situation is in Egypt as it relates to dog rescue and how and why Golden Rescue got involved. We thought the best way to describe the Egypt dilemma is to give you a first-hand account of the journey to Cairo that we, Jane Riddell and Viive Tamm, Golden Rescue board members, took so we could understand what was going on and what, if anything, Golden Rescue could do to help. Before we relate our personal account of the trip, let us give you some general information on the situation in Egypt.

Jude lost her nine-year-old Golden and six months later their 14-year-old crossed the Rainbow Bridge. This was devastating and their house was no longer a home.

Jude filled in an application but by then the two seniors had been adopted. They, however, found Murphy #1413 ~ a beautiful 11-year-old girl and the love affair began.…
