About Our Work

The dog and cat populations have now grown to epic proportions and a ‘neuter and release’ scheme must be put into place, coupled with funding for sick animals who either have inherent problems or who’ve been hurt in accidents.

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.

HELP US RENOVATE YEDIKULE ANIMAL SHELTER

$35 Saves a Life

Every single disabled cat in Istanbul goes to Yedikule shelter, plus motherless kittens and abandoned house cats. Animals are often dumped at the shelter’s doorstep. 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

Besides the 140 cats there at the moment, new cat sanctuary will not only save hundreds more in the years to come, but greatly help in controlling the population.About 50% of all cats arriving are not spayed/neutered so this is an opportunity to take in more felines and do this important work, which will prevent thousands more animals from suffering on the city streets.
