Ornekkoy Animal Shelter, Izmir, Turkey

I am Evrim from

Izmir, Turkey. I am writing this letter because
Ornekkoy animal shelter here is in desperate need of help. This
shelter is being run by volunteers. There are 2 or 3 people trying to
help. But there are about 500 dogs and 300 cats! We do not know the
exact number, there are so many deaths, births and newcomers. Mr.
Celal Uner a retired officer is trying to help these animals since 9
years. He makes all the food, the cleaning and so on.

The shelter needs money of course and he can not afford everything. We asked for
help from the municipal. After long years, the government accepted to
give spaghetti. The rest of the expenditures are of our
responsibility. The amount of money the volunteers can put together
is about 250 euros each month. For a population of 800 this amount is
close to nothing. We can not do the regular vaccinations or
sterilizations. Only a few animals can get veterinary help when they
are injured, sick or hit by a car. That is why death rates are very
high. We already have 500 euro debt to the veterinary. Mr. Uner buys
some of the medicines and does the injections by himself.

Here are some food, veterinary, etc� prices in Turkey :

Chicken bone= 0,4 euro/kg Lamb bone= 1,2 euro / kg Dog food =1,4
euro / kg

Milk= 0,8 euro /kg Bread= 0,2 euro/ each

Sterilization= 30 euro/each Surgeries= approximately 100 euro

Medicines(for ticks, fleas, whooping-cough, diarrhea,� = we pay
about 70 euro each month

As you can imagine we can not do much with 250 euro/ month.

We can buy 280 kg of chicken bone each month to mix with spaghetti
and bread which costs 112 euro and lasts for 12 days. For the rest of
the month they only eat spaghetti and bread.

We can buy 60 kg. milk each month for the babies costing about 50
euros/month. Most of the babies have no mothers and the milk we can
afford is not enough. Chicken bone, milk and medicine costs adds up
to 232 euros . The remaining 18 euros we give to the veterinary.

Winter is coming. The cats and the babies will die again from the
cold and rain. We have 50 m2 roofed area and the rest is open.

If we had at least 1000 euro/month income we could do more for them.
Mr. Celal Uner is hopeless, me too. He does not know how long he can
maintain this shelter. He says this place has no future and one day
all the animals here will be left to death. Unfortunately, generally
Turkish society does not value animals. Government simply kills them.
So we need help from you.

Any kind of help would be appreciated and it is urgent. Food,
medicine, money , adoption�etc.. Please contact me by this mail
address or my mobile phone. I can send more photos of the shelter.

Thank you,
