Death is rampant in Yeniciftlik Shelter, we need to act
Posted August 31st, 2011 - 10:54 am by from Istanbul, Turkey (Permalink)





Dear friends,

this pup DIED 3 days ago in Yeniçiftlik Shelter.Yeniçiftlik Shelter is a bit outside of Istanbul (30 mins away) and as it is far from the city they don't have the support of many,so all the work is done by a handful of volunteers without clinical equipment or necessary funds to treat the animals.

A close friend of mine is volunteer at that shelter and this Sunday I am going to visit there to see the situation with my own eyes.

With her words,the disease is rampant at that shelter and pups are passing one by one because they can not tolerate shelter conditions.

If we dont do something many more will DIE in that shelter.

Are we going to turn our heads and imagine this is not happening?


Supporting them with food is not enough.We need to get organised and pull the ones in critical situation,treat them and foster them until our friends can rehome them through rescue communities.This is the way to do it.

Please dont ignore this message,let's discuss what can be done for these poor babies.

Hi Nazlı ,if you like I can put you in contact with volunteers at YeniÇiftlik shelter.

what you can do ?

-You can foster a pup facing death (is close to a kill shelter actually)
-You can adopt a dog from there.
-You can send mama through a website

but the most urgent need is fosters for pups that would be able to pull the pups from the death they are facing!

Please help..

You can liken the concept of fostering letting an animal surfing your couch temporarily actually.It is quiet close to the CS concept.
But it is vital in this case...
