Estimates of stray animals in Turkey are around 10 million. Conditions in animal shelters, how to support stray animals and for dear friends to adopt, implement the project “Will you be my family” today. We’ll share the stories of dear friends who are waiting for a loving home on the streets and reunite them with their new families FEATHER WITH ADHESIVE… Millions of animals are fighting for survival on the streets, they’re not just starving, they’re exposed to violence. Karmela, adopted by Ceren Çetinkaya at the age of 2 and a half months, is just one of them. Demirören Medya Digital Marketing Manager Çetinkaya lost his first dog Black Pepper to Parvovirus. He first found Karmela in a coal shed, tortured by pulling her hair with glue. Çetinkaya returned to this time and recounted how they met Karmela:
“When Karmela and I first met, she was 2.5 months old. He was in very bad condition. She had been tortured by being pulled by something sticky in her hair. The skin on the right and left sides of his body had fallen off. He had a very advanced fungal disease that covered his whole body. He was constantly itchy and had a skin infection. When we took him to the vet, we were told that he ” doesn’t live long, he seems to have a lifespan of a week or two”. Although it was difficult, we went through the process together in a short period of a month. Now aged 4.5 months. He has become extremely healthy and very affectionate towards people. LIKE HAVING A SON… Most people are hesitant to adopt a pet because they live in an apartment. There is an opinion that large dogs cannot be kept in apartments. For this reason, small dogs are preferred. With the right training and a regular feeding schedule, living in an apartment with a large dog is possible. They need our love more than space. Having a pet is not that different from having a child. People who think they have a busy work schedule avoid it too much. When you create a regular eating routine and dedicate half an hour or an hour during the day, they are very satisfied afterwards. The important thing is that you give him a home here. It is important that you eliminate problems such as not being cold outside and finding water in the summer.
MUST BE OWNED There is no special race. All dogs are dogs, all cats are cats. The color is a little different, the eye color is not a plus for you to like it. This kind of addiction is for people who want to have a pet on a purely temporary whim but think they actually have status with their pet. Just like when you love a person, their eyebrows and eyes don’t matter, so when you own an animal, there should be no motive like I should have a special breed. There are too many dogs in particular need of help, waiting to be treated, tortured. If they can meet such financial obligations when adopting, they should prefer these animals. »314 DOG AND CAT IN THEIR NEW HOME Operating over an area of seven decares, the center employs a total of 37 staff including 7 veterinarians.
