Dalyan Dog Rescue – Dohakder
Who are we?
DOHAKDER is a Nature, Animal Protection Society, a REGISTERED CHARITY based in beautiful Dalyan, Turkey. It is managed by Volunteers only. The Charity is financed by kind Donations, Sponsorship and Fundraising.
Dalyan is fortunate in having a unique and beautiful setting within the geography of Turkey, and is rightly valued and protected. From Liquid Amber Trees and the beautiful river, lake and beach, to the myriad of wildlife we are blessed with, including Turtles, terrapins, Owls, Eagles, Kingfishers and storks: All are protected – even the crows and pigeons at the mosque courtyard are protected and live together in Harmony – as do the traditional street animals of the country. The Dogs and Cats.
We, as DOHAKDER (Nature, Animal Protection Society), are united to maintain this Harmony.
We say don’t destroy this diversity, or try to take it away. We encourage everyone to work together, so that the dogs and cats of Dalyan can live in the neighbourhood where they have been loved and looked after for years, after they have been neutered, to maintain the balance and stop unwanted puppies and kittens on the streets. They are an important and integral part of the community here, and some of the animals have been here longer than the residents, but need our help.
To support this effort, we provide a caring rescue-centre and home for many dogs who have not been able to adapt to life on the streets, or are vulnerable to the impact of increased development in the area. All of these dogs are neutered, vaccinated, and protected by us, until we can find loving homes for them, and give them a happy future.
You can become part of our group, and support these efforts, or adopt. All donations are greatly appreciated to maintain a quality of life and food for the dogs until new homes are found, and with cooperation, together we can improve the situation in Dalyan.
