Want to Help?

Here’s how YOU can help Stray Animals of Istanbul

ADOPT OR FOSTER

Our aim is to help Istanbul’s stray animals and place them into a permanent and loving home in Turkey or abroad.

Pet PREPARATION

We provide a potential adopter with all the information needed for them to adopt. Therefore, we require an adoption application form to be completed.

Spay & Neuter

Tens of thousands of Istanbul animals are being euthanized annually, the leading cause of death in animal shelters for healthy dogs and cats. Huge number of animals are being put down unnecessarily. DONATE NOW

Finding A Home

Tails of Istanbul tries to rescue these animals. We hope you will consider adopting one.

TAKE ACTION

$35 Saves a Life

The animals in Istanbul are reproducing at a rapid pace, and the constant sight of pregnant cats confirms the fact that this is an ongoing problem, which is not being managed properly.. According to People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), a single cat and her offspring can produce 370,000 kittens in 7 years!
Please consider making a donation.

Adopt & Foster

Adopting an animal is a long-term commitment. You are taking in a new family member into your home. Another option is being a FOSTER HOME. Many animals are waiting to go abroad and they need a temporary home during this time period. A vet cage is not the right environment for an animal. In providing a temporary home for the animal you are a part of saving their life.
