HELPING THE STRAY ANIMALS OF Turkey

Adopt a Pet!

Tails of Turkey was established in 2016 as a network to help the homeless animals of the Country. Our growing community, both on the ground and on social media, is not only rescuing and fostering cats and dogs, but successfully promoting animal welfare, as well as encouraging adoptions in Turkey and beyond!

Spay & Neuter

Tens of thousands of animals are being euthanized annually in each city, the leading cause of death in animal shelters for healthy dogs and cats. Huge number of animals are being put down unnecessarily. DONATE NOW

TAKE ACTION

Spay & Neuter

The animals in Turkey are reproducing at a rapid pace, and the constant sight of pregnant cats confirms the fact that this is an ongoing problem, which is not being managed properly.. According to People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), a single cat and her offspring can produce 370,000 kittens in 7 years!
Please consider making a donation.

Adopt & Foster

Adopting an animal is a long-term commitment. You are taking in a new family member into your home. Another option is being a FOSTER HOME. Many animals are waiting to go abroad and they need a temporary home during this time period. A vet cage is not the right environment for an animal. In providing a temporary home for the animal you are a part of saving their life.

Flight Volunteer

Sometimes forever homes are abroad and we need a flight volunteer to escort the animal. When you accept to bring a cat or dog with you on your booked flight, we will help you with booking the cat or dog on the same flight.
