To the best of our ability and our resources we will continue to help animal victims of traffic terror to make sure that they are not left suffering on their on by the highway side.

Our ANIMAL AMBULANCE became operational on June 2009.

During first six months of operation, 800 emergency calls were responded to and hundreds of accident stricken, injured, mutilated stray animals were helped.

For most of the calls, the animals were taken to private healthcare facilities where they were treated and/or had to undergo surgery.

While some of the animals recovered completely and returned to their old neighborhoods and some were adopted by sensitive people, some were permanently disabled and had to be taken to shelters where they would spend the rest of their lives. Some, unfortunately could not make it…

Presently around 100 calls per month are received and responded to. Alas, Istanbul traffic and uncaring drivers continue to be the nightmare of stray animals…
