Rescue a cat or a dog in Turkey

Adopt a pet from Turkey

Thousands of dogs in Turkey end up in crowded shelters. Many of them don’t survive. Thousands of stray cats try to survive on the streets of Istanbul but it’s a miserable life. On this page we will list the animal cases we are managing closely. Find your new fur baby from the list below! If you would like to adopt or foster an animal, we will help you throughout the entire process. Or you might want to be a flight volunteer and take a pet to its new home abroad. If you can’t do any of those, please consider donating as even a small amount goes a long way to help us continue our work.
