(WIAT) — There are residents who are calling the Birmingham area home after being rescued off the streets of Istanbul, Turkey.

It’s called the Turkey Dog Rescue. Adopt a Golden Birmingham teamed up with their sister organization in Atlanta to fly 214 Golden Retrievers from Istanbul, Turkey.

Six of those dogs are in Birmingham for families who have already adopted them.

This is the third mission where Golden Retrievers have been brought to America from Istanbul for a better life.
