This year we are featuring the following special needs Golden’s:  Aine (aka Pearl), Domino, Rufus, Dusty, Halley, and Finn.  Each of these goldens has a special need that SEVA GRREAT will address to prepare them for their forever home.  More about each golden will be posted at www.givelocal757.org  as we get closer to May 8th, and on our Facebook page.  SEVA GRREAT has participated in GIVE LOCAL 757 for the past two years.  In two years we raised close to $30,000 in the two 24 hour events--a true statement about you, our supporters!!  We could not do what we do without you!  Thank you for all you do for SEVA GRREAT.

For hundreds of years, homeless dogs have been a part of the Turkish environment. Estimates for the number of homeless dogs roaming the streets and in the shelters of Istanbul vary greatly from 70,000 to 150,000.
Once considered a status symbol by the wealthy in Turkey, Golden Retrievers have become more common and less valued. As a result, hundreds end up being released onto the streets dodging traffic and begging for scraps.

SEVA GRREATWelcome to the new web-face of SEVA GRREAT!  It has been a few years since we freshened up our website, so we took the opportunity to update our backend services and our management system.  As the internet matures, so does the need to update your technology.  Our newest management system allows us to more easily manage upgrades, security, and information on our site.  There are plenty of behind-the-scenes changes that have taken place, but here are some of the front-side changes you can expect to notice.
