Have you tried Golden Rescue Ca Based in Ontario? It's true that also for türkish GRs there is a long waiting list. One of the reason is 1) due to shortage of flight volunteers ( a fv can fly max 2 dogs) 2) by cargo a rescue can have shipped max 18-20 dogs 3) if they do not have facility, they have to find fosters for the dogs till they get adopted. Sometimes, this procedure is upto 4-6 months ALTHOUGH there are thousands of applications. 4) In winter months,we are afraid also to fly dogs. ( at least me I hesitate). I just handed one of my türkish GR boys in NY. Eventhough we had flight volunteers during winter , I did not want to fly him during very cold months and did personally . 5) FINANCING. We as türkish volunteers pay for main treatments, tests for parasites, vaccinations, if there is no foster ( usually there is none or few) lodging costs in the dog hotel ( I have dogs in the dog hotels waiting for a family since more than a year), transportation, spaying/neutering , microchipping. And the rescues pay for the flight costs ( cargo & crate which is minimum USD 1000 upto 2.000 because they are once more tested once they are in US or Canada and if a very grave health issue comes up which was impossible to be diagnosed beforehand , imagine the cost for the rescue. So, the rescues have also limited space, foster & funds.
