About Our Dogs

Out of an abundance of caution and concern related to the COVID-19 pandemic, RAGOM is not accepting adoption or volunteer applications until April 10. Meet & Greet events are suspended until May 1. We will however continue emergency and medically necessary intake of dogs. Thank you for your understanding, patience, and support.

Most of our dogs come from individuals who need to surrender their dogs and from commercial breeders who retire their dogs. Some dogs landed as strays in shelters or lived on the streets of Turkey. Others have been abused or neglected and suffer from lack of socialization, training, and proper medical care. Our goal is to find these dogs loving forever homes using a process and protocol that ensure the best fit for each dog and the home that welcomes the dog.
