just wondered how these animal shelters actually work, can anyone shed any light , ie the majority of people in Turkey are obviously Turkish and Turkish people dont "usually" keep pets although i know the cities generally have more people who own pets but as a rule who actually adopt the animals , are they expats ? and/or are the animals actually adoptable because i imagine they have been roaming the streets poss most if not all of their lives and not used to human contact unless its a boot up their *rse .
This isnt a post to start a debate or argument just me purely asking how animal shelters work in Turkey because i cant think who adopts in large enough numbers in order to make a difference.
I ve read posts on other sites about rescue centres and they seem to have been set up and run by Euopeans not Turks but there's no mention about the day to day operations or are the animals just kept and given shelter , food and water.
Just being nosey , i love to learn if its to do with animals

They aim to vaccinate, neuter and collar tag the dogs, then will either try to rehome them or will have to put them back on the streets.
It will be run like a charity with donations made to help with the costs via Dalaman banks.

you are a man after my own heart, i admire you and your wife for getting involved, i feel for any animal in any country who are left to their own devices and have to do what they can in order to survive, arnt these dogs born from domesticated dogs owned by people in the first place ? they are not a breed of wild dog ! a case of human error and then blaming an animal ,i dont care what nationality people are i am just so pleased to read humans are trying to help these dogs and that they are helping them.
Being agressive towards people is their only way of telling them to back off leave me alone and DONT hurt me. im sure if they could speak English they would tell us but they can't .
i have strong feelings about Animal welfare and if only people knew the half of it.
I will thank you Steve and your wife and the others for helping these animals who im sure would rather have not been born if they knew the life they were about to lead

Now i love animal's and dog's,and i did not say that the Brit's are responsible i said some are encouraging them onto apartment block's which cannot be right especially with children on them, who know's what deseases these stray's have.
Another thing i am not frightened of dog's but my wife is when she was attacked by a large dog when she was young, that said i would willingly support any orginisation that would deal with the problem. It is not safe for dog's to run around in pack's you just have to read the horror stories about dogs attacking children in the press but that's another story.

i used to live next to a train station in London and after a while didn't hear the trains so really i think the dog's barking wont be a problem after a while , also we have two mosque's near us but that is the culture i have chose to buy into so it's not a problem i actualy quite enjoy the call to prayer.
