My name is Uwes I am an engineer in Turkey, Istanbul, I am living here with my rescue dogs and cats (all from Turkey). I have become ever more aware of the problems experienced with campus animals, my own having experienced abuse then left on the streets. Though many people do care for them providing food and shelter, emergency medical costs are a problem. And as we know some people mistreat animals, especially those with no home or protection. I am working with a fantastic charity now, they provide emergency medical care costs for strays from several regions (animals are transported by volunteers), as well as paying for shelter during the re-homing or adoption processes, and providing food for street animals in the local area. We would love to raise money so that there is a savings fund for emergency cases (new ones are coming every week), and enabling the animals to get the care ASAP rather than after emergency fundraising efforts.
