If you ever been in Turkey, you know that there is enormous number of street dogs and cats. Most of the furry friends are calm and friendly and looking for love and food. They coexist with people in big cities. Unfortunately, the situation in villages and suburbs very often is dramatic. Dogs are living in packs like wolfs, becoming wilder and often killed by farmers/ scared people. With growing political inner problems government can’t cope with this one.

We saved our little dog from family who wanted to throw her to the streets. Zara now it’s with us for 5 years and she moved with us from Turkey to UK.
