Now there’s another dead dog in the back. just saw it. 3 of them were alive and the dog was eating 2.

With the amendment made on July 14, 2021 to Law No. 5199, 6 dogs were were defined as prohibited breeds, and the deadline for registering their owners was January 14, 2022. After this period, it was mandatory to keep dogs of prohibited breeds that could not be registered and that did not meet the conditions stipulated by law, in the shelters. In this context, our stray animal care and rehabilitation center belonging to the municipality of Çanakkale was also entrusted to our stray animal care and rehabilitation center of the central district, surrounding municipalities and other settlements. Center for care and rehabilitation of animals, we have special observation rooms for the sick and the animals that will be sterilized. The care of the finished was done mainly in individual cages. As the number of dogs of prohibited breeds increased and the observation rooms used for stray animals requiring treatment and other health needs were not sufficient, these animals were only included in the prohibited breeds section . He was not kept with other breeds of dogs. In this section, feeding, care and health checks are carried out regularly. These dogs of prohibited breeds have been living in this section for more than 2 months and no problems have been encountered. You should also know that unfortunately the dogs of the prohibited breeds in our shelter were bought by paying money on time, maybe they were made to fight, they were prone to become aggressive in bad conditions, in short, they were brought into this situation by human hands and registered by these people, who are also called their owners. These are dogs that do not fulfill their obligations under the law and are abandoned on the streets by their owners . We as Çanakkale Municipality have fulfilled our obligations such as sterilization, vaccination, treatment, nutrition and shelter so as not to leave these lives unattended, and we have not left them starving or exposed . The collection, care and other activities of stray animals belonging to prohibited breeds are carried out in coordination with the knowledge and supervision of the Directorate of Nature Conservation and National Parks.
