Sponsoring

Only 15% of our 520 dogs are sponsored, please help Koycegiz Dogs by sponsoring an animal. SAVE A LIFE: SPONSOR!


Not everyone is in a position to offer an animal a home. A great way of being able to help, is by sponsoring one of our dogs. There are many, many animals at Koycegiz who, for some reason or another, will never leave  the shelter.  You can help these animals by sponsoring them. The cost of sponsorship varies, dependent upon the animal.


We understand that not everyone is in the position to cover the full sponsorship on the monthly basis, therefore we also offer shared sponsorships. Please get in touch for more details. We need your support regardless of the amount.

  • Food costs (dry food) is 70 TL (£11/12 Euro)** 
  • Special feeding which includes pasta, rice, conserve, chicken and biscuits 200 TL (£25/30 Euro)**
  • One off sponsorship payments Castration  is 120 TL (£16/ 19 Euro)** Vaccinations for distemper and rabies are 80 TL(£10/ 11 Euro)**. Others are available as well at a cost of 40 TL each. Available are bronchitis, kennel cough and a mixed one.
  • Kennel for your sponsored Dog costs  300 TL (£45/ 50 Euro)**. The dogs name and sponsor will be painted on the kennel, this will be their home for the duration of their stay.

**Please note that these prices are subject to exchange rate and might go up or down.   Please contact us for any further questions on the sponsorship program. As a sponsor, you will receive a Sponsor Confirmation and will give you updates/photos of your sponsored animal.

Help us to pay for an additional Shelter Worker

This Fund is established to enable us to employ a new worker for the shelter.

Currently we operate with 2 Turkish full time workers which are being provided and paid by the municipality. 2 people that look after 450 dogs, which is far too few to look after the general cleaning duties, care for the healthy and sick dogs and ensure their mental and physical well being.


Foster From Us and Save Life

We urgently looking for Foster Homes who can provide a temporary care for our dogs most in need of a break from Shelter life. Becoming a dog foster carer means you are providing invaluable support in caring for lost, abandoned and unwanted animals who are too vulnerable to cope with the Shelter life. 

We are seeking foster carers for a number of reasons, including:


  • Dogs who don't cope well in the shelter environment  (Many dogs find the Shelter Life very stressful and after time start to deteriorate.)
  • Sick Dogs that are in recovery
  • Special needs dogs
  • Puppies (Puppies are vulnerable and are at very high risk to contract a contagious disease, ideally they should not stay in the shelter until they receive their 1st  vaccination)

The number of foster homes is directly proportionate to the number of animals we can save. Its that simple.

Adopt a Dog from Turkey

All of our dogs did not have an easy start in life and for one reason or another ended up in the Shelter. Majority of our babies will spend their entire Life in the Shelter with non or very little hope to be adopted. They will never experience the safety of a loving home, a gentle touch or a warmth of a lap. Please help us to change this. Saving a dog from a shelter and watching him to blossom into a loving and loyal friend is a most gratifying and rewarding experience. Contact us for more details on the adoption program. 

Donate

We rely heavily on donations to pay for vet bills, medications, cleaning materials and to up keep the shelter. Alternative ways to donate   

  • Donate your skills: Do you have any special talent or a hobby like photography or creating video? Photographing shelter dogs or highlighting one in an adoptable pet video, can bring attention to a pet who's often overlooked.
  • Donate Dog Food: We are in a great need of high quality dry and wet dog food
