  1. There was a stray dog that came into the riverside hotel in dalyan some weeks ago. We have named her Ruby, she is a beautiful pedigree spaniel. Guests and hotel have been feeding her and some guests provided money, left with bill herring the hotel rep (who is know at the charity) to be spayed and have her vaccinations. She has now had her operation an is recouping at bills and will be returned to the hotel soon. We are trying now hopefully with your help to get her to the UK where we know we will find a good home, as we do not think she will cope very well during the winter months. Bill has informed me that he has left 150TL with you, I assume for the vaccinations. We have got in touch with an organisation called Paws Kennels, who we think will arrange transportation for her, funds can be arranged, but we do need someone to liaise with them. We need to know what the dog requires as far as blood tests, and any further vaccinations, passport, etc. Do you think you can help please. Thank you

  2. Hello I met Hilary at the riverside hotel a few days ago and she recognised coco who had escaped from the pound!she then went back to the pound and the following day she was back !hilary said look out for her as the manager / owner doesn’t like her and won’t keep her!,

  3. Hi Karen,
    Sorry to trouble you but my sister has just arrived in Olu Deniz and rescued a dog she seen a Turkish man beating. The dog followed my sister and friend along the beach and back to their room crying. We are like yourself massive dog lovers and always try to help strays. He has a collar on but no tag?! They have placed a towel on the floor and he has curled up and gone asleep. What do you recommend we do? My contact number is +44 7722605270. Hope you can help us. Thanks Jen x

  12. We at Bankhead Kennels have sent via paypal £100 – can someone acknowledge receipt otherwise we will cancel it

  13. Have finally managed to set up a regular payment using PayPal. I use my phone and realised I needed to set it to desk top site. I’ve been keen to make a regular donation since I visited the rescue centre and saw all the good and never-ending work they do there taking care of our canine friends. And of course during the winter when they also look after the street dogs. I look forward to my next visit, much love to you all.

  14. Please help. I am very concerned about a dog I saw in Dalyan last week. Please can you email me for details. If you are able to rescue this dog I will make a significant donation.

  15. Hi , just returned home from holiday in Dalyan, and this has been playing on my mind ever since . We went to Asha Bay ( no idea of spelling)! And saw a white boxer looking dog tied under a tree in the car park , with only a bed of beer bottles to lie on 😏.. big chain on his collar and a couple buckets of water I’m guessing . I’m sure I can remember him in the same place a couple of yrs ago . What a terribly sad life for him, not to mention how much broken glass he was sleeping on . Have anyone ever contacted you about this poor boy ?

  16. Hi, there is a dog that hangs around the Emir Grand (sp?) hotel who is fed by the hotel but has a pronounced limp and seems in pain. Is it possible for him to get help?

    1. Hi Rachel

      The best thing to do is ask the hotel to call the vet or take him/her to the vet yourself. If you say its a street dog then the charity will pay.

      Please let us know how you get on.

      Best wishes

  17. I will not be able to visit Dalyan for a while. I would like to make donations from Germany. Which is the best way to avoid high bank charges? I have no Paypal Account but my daughter in law would do it for me via her Paypal account. Will we get a confirmation after arrival of the money?

  18. Hello, I have sent you an email regarding a few kittens and a three legged mum on Sulungur CD. I would be very grateful if someone could look into it. If you manage to get them, I will make a donation towards their medical treatment and food. It’s an isolated tourist area and I doubt there is much to eat, especially once the tourists are gone. Thank you very much.

  19. We thank you for looking after the animals of Dalyan, they have looked much healthier o er the years, however there is one dog we are concerned about, it’s an Alsatian chained up at the side of BC Spa car park, it looks so very under fed and uncared for. I know you’re busy but if you could check her out for us we’d be much happier, thank you x

    1. Hello Elaine

      We are aware of this dog and I can confirm that he is well looked after even though he is chained up. They do excercise, feed amd love him. The local charity has visited and spoken to the owner.

  21. dear animal lovers, friends, and supporter, I do live in Dalyan and I am feeding every day street cats and dogs. This year is not like the years before. Dalyan lives from Tourisme

I urgently ask you to help us to keep all this animals alive. Thank you for your kindness, your support and your understanding of this special situation

  22. I hope my small donation will go some way to helping the animals. I have noticed there appear to be less dogs on the street this year … maybe not ?

    1. Hi Sally

      There are less dogs now, really no idea where they have gone, maybe adopted.
