Support Us

We are a group dedicated people supporting the Dalyan Street Dogs & Cats with food.
Dalyan Street Feeding Group raises money in the UK and EUROPE ONLY.
We use all money collected to buy food so our volunteer’s can go out feeding each day throughout the year.
We feed on the streets of Dalyan as many Cats & Dogs as our budget allows.
We are all volunteers and all money raised is used to purchase FOOD.
We DO NOT raise money in Turkey as this is not allowed for our group to do so and NONE of our team raises money in Turkey.
If you wish to support in Turkey please buy food locally and one our volunteers can collect it.
Thank you to all our wonderful supporters for your continued help, the street animals are so grateful for your help.
What would we do without you all, if we did not have this group there would be a lot of hungry animals in Dalyan.
Lets look forward to a better year together supporting each other in these very challenging times.
Thank you thank you thank you xxx😘😘😘

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. You can arange support through a reputable shipping agency.


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.

    Are you able to tell me anything about the spaying and neutering efforts in Dalyan? Is there any organized effort (government or private)? I’m American. My husband and I will be here off and on throughout the year. He recently purchased a property in Dalyan. I’m a sucker for animals, so of course, your efforts to feed and care for the street animals here warms my heart. I’m just wondering about population control efforts too. Thanks!

      Hi Fawn

      We have been organising the feeding of the animals in Dalyan for around 7 years, the focus has been feeding only although if there is any funds spare we sometimes cover vet costs or neutering.

      The local council is responsible for neutering animals but there is a lot of politics in Turkey and if your council supports the opposition party then you may not get funding. So we are faced with dogs and cats that can just multiply.

      There is a quiz on Sundays which raises funds purely for cat neutering, they have been running this for 10 years or so and have neutered many cats each year.

      There is also Cat Paws which was originally a cat respite centre but has evolved into a neutering centre with the cat quiz team funding, ocassionaly getting support from the coucil (rarely).

      Please let me know if you need any more information.

      Best regards

      Sorry, I forgot a couple of things about animal welfare in Dalyan.

      There is a relatively new local organisation, its called Arthurs Legacy. They are cat welfare group, you can find them on Facebook.

      The only Turkish charity is Dohakder, they are welfare for cats and dogs and look after the local dog shelter which is not funded by the government so they rely solely on donations.

      Best regards
