These 10 animal rescuers may have saved hundreds of street dogs but they also inspired villagers, businesses and the municipality to make a difference too.
In Ankara, Turkey adoption rates are low. People prefer to buy dogs instead of adopting them. Çiğdemin Patileri posts about stray dogs and rescue in a Turkish neighborhood. The make-shift rescue, created by a group of people with a shared passion for animals is only 10 people.
But these 10 people take care of 300 dogs and cats on a daily basis. They are feeding them, providing medical attention, sterilization, temporary shelters, trying to find homes, even going to schools to educate students about animal rescue and welfare.
They are true heroes for the work they are doing!
Check out the video of their efforts and the dogs they are taking care of in the video below.
