Our mission is to reduce the number of stray cats and dogs in Dalyan through neutering and spaying and re-homing activities. Until this is achieved we try to save their lives by providing food, medication and shelter. To succeed in these projects we need every help we can get, no matter if you are a long-term resident or just staying for a few weeks on holiday. Thank you.

We are always looking for people that will foster a postoperative or sick animal for a short time. Cats and dogs that have been neutered or spayed need a dry warm place as e.g. a garden shed or garage for a few days to recover before they can be released back to the streets. We are also looking for people to foster sick animals that need regular medication for a limited time.
Furthermore we are looking for people to foster animals that will be adopted abroad and need to stay three months at a secure place until the paperwork is done.

The main objective of our organisation is to re-home the animals living on Dalyan’s streets. The adoption process within Turkey is very easy. The adoption of animals to the EU takes about four months, as the animals have to be microchipped and vaccinated. We can arange support through EPT.
ADOPTING A DOG FROM TURKEY
The process for adoption takes approximately 4 months from choosing your preferred dog to receiving it in the UK/Europe (transport arrangements may be different to other European countries) however the process to be followed remains the same. A microchip must be inserted alongside the injections. Microchip is approximately 100tl, rabies injection 40tl, other necessary injections are for distemper, Parvo virus (sometimes kennel cough) and cost in the region of 100tl. Thirty days later rabies serological blood tests will be taken that must match up to the microchip . The blood tests cost in the region of 400tl. Three months after all injections results are taken and the vet will sign the necessary papers. The animal must be de-wormed and frontlined not more than 5 days and not less than 2 days before exit from Turkey. After de-worming and frontlining the papers must be taken to the municipal vet for the necessary stamps and authorisation. The cost is approximately 40tl.
TRAVELLING TO UK/EUROPE
Air travel varies depending on the time of year (more expensive in the winter months i.e Nov/April). If you decide on the air route the person adopting the animal must be on the same flight, or that person can designate someone to travel with the animal. The animal must be taken to the airport and checked in as cargo. The cargo office is open between 9 – 5pm and closed at weekends.
Travelling by road can be booked with EPT. You can find them on Facebook.
