I want to introduce the wonderful work of Kyrenia Animal Rescue (KAR), a huge centre for dogs and cats abandoned, abused, injured or sick, near Kyrenia, in North Cyprus

I want to introduce the wonderful work of Kyrenia Animal Rescue (KAR), a huge centre for dogs and cats

abandoned, abused, injured or sick, near Kyrenia, in North Cyprus.

They have numerous cats and up to 400 dogs at any one time, currently at 250 dogs when we visited yesterday. It’s a donation run charity and relies on people’s generosity and kindness to keep running, the same as many others, and they do a fine job! The kennels are clean, cat pens clean, the animals very

well looked after and it’s a wonderful place to visit.

Sadly, a bout of Distemper has been brought into the centre (probably via abandoned animals left outside the shelter) which has been devastating and fatal for many dogs as it broke out so quickly. They are on top of the outbreak now; some dogs currently are being held in quarantine. The rest look good, but the dog side of the centre is still in lock down to be safe.

The centre encourages volunteers to come up and walk the dogs in the beautiful five finger mountain range, where the centre is located, and this has brought joy to the dogs and many visitors, either living there or on holiday. We were not able to do this because of the lock down, BUT we did visit the cat pens, full of beautiful cats and a special little kitten which I got to play with 😊

Sadly, because there are SO MANY stray cats and dogs in North Cyprus, (I have never seen so many) it is h

ard to re-home the animals, and once they are past their puppy or kitten stage, it’s nigh on impossible. I so wanted to adopt a couple and bring them back to the UK, but I have no room for more animals at this time.

Could you donate?

Or could you sponsor a dog?

Check out their website here http://www.kartrnc.org/ (the ‘about’ page tells you all they have done since opening, and there’s info on sponsorship and lots more)

If you can spare a few pounds, please go to their Go Fund Me page and donate. X
