I have created this ongoing fundraiser for those that wish to support my animal rescue work.
Currently there are two dogs that were rescued at the end of summer 2019 and they now have a chance to go to Canada to start new lives.
The opportunities to fly them both out of Turkey are coming up quickly! The first for Bal on February 2nd and her sister, Kara, can possibly fly out on February 25th.
IF WE ACT FAST!
Thankfully both dogs have found homes in Toronto, but funds need to be raised to cover the costs of preparation and travel.
Costs are as follows (in USD):
- Boarding $200
- Pre-Departure Vet Checks & Treatments $100
- (2) Dog Crates for Cargo $100
- Transport/Check-in to Istanbul Airport $50
- Government Paperwork $110
- Canada Customs Inspection Fees $60
- Feb 2nd Flight fees: Turkish Airlines $192 (40% discount as 1 of 3 dogs traveling)
- Feb 27th Flight fees: Turkish Airlines $320
TOTAL $1,132 USD / $1,500 CDN
Every penny counts!
Please share this campaign with your animal loving friends :)
Please also join the Facebook group @ https://www.facebook.com/groups/vanimalrescuesociety/, which has been created to help find homes for Turkish cats and dogs that have been abandoned either on the streets or in overcrowded shelters.
While living abroad in Italy, I began working with Tails of Istanbul in 2017. Since then our small team has had big successes rescuing vulnerable animals, as well as finding forever homes in Europe and North America.
Now that I'm based in Vancouver, I want to continue this work!
As a group, we'll need to collaborate not only to secure foster and forever homes, but also to find flight volunteers to transport animals.
All of the steps to being a flight volunteer can be reviewed @ https://tailsofturkey.org/flight-volunteers/
NOTE: Only the costs of transporting a cat/dog are covered.
THANKS for joining and supporting VANimal Rescue Society!
