Dear friends, family and animal lovers,
My name is Ahmet, I am living in Gelibolu Turkey. After serving 40 years as an elementry school teacher I got retired and moved out from the city. I am having a rural life style now my house is 30 miles away from closest town and there is no another houses around it. There is a painful truth where I live; people from the city leave their pets after they had grown up, leaving them to die out of the city. I found my first dog couple weeks after I moved here, from that day now I saved dozens dogs and cats. I couldn't leave the poor animals to their fate. I build little shelter in my garden. I also prepare their food by myself, I am frequently in contact with the veterinary for their care and neuter them. There are not enough shelters and local governments do nothing for these poor animal’s welfare. They barely find food and when they do, it is mostly food scraps and waste. Many of them are tortured, beaten and mutilated. We also see stray cats and dogs poisoned as well. They are victims of hit and run. Because of lack of care by local governments and overcrowded animal shelters, I decide to take an action and help as many as stray cats and dogs I can. I believe they deserve a better life and I want to help them. I need you help for:
1. Monthly food expenses
2. Veterinary expenses for injured animal and also for neuter them
3. Repair my shelter in the garden.
