    I held a car boot sale to continue to show my support to the fantastic KAPSA team, having found out about KAPSA in 2017 when lovely Mavish the blue eyed dog wandered into our villa garden.

    keep up the great work

  4. Tracie Osman says:

    I see many street cats and dogs whilst on my holiday here and to know that you are taking care of them is a huge relief. Few of them look starved or in bad condition and that is down to you. Please can you keep a special eye out for a young black and tan dog in Patara who I saw last night with what looked like stitches and cotton wool in its back. He’s very friendly but scared of card and men..please look out for him and Twiggy in Kalkan. Thank you

    This is towards the production of poster/s warming that it is illegal to harm cats and dogs. My friend has had a number of beautiful dogs poisoned in Uzumlu, so that may be a good place to start.

    My first visit to Kalkan and definitely not my last. Been touched by the plight of these animals but also touched by the love and dedication that is in place and would like to think that I could donate on a regular basis and next time I come out bring over whatever is needed

  28. Lynn Murphy says:

    Thanks for rescuing the pathetic little white cat from behind Yali piazza. You rescued her within a few hours of us contacting you about her.
    Also, thanks for coming to our villa, Meltem, on Demokrasi, when an old dog arrived in our garden seeking shade and company. We weren’t sure if he was unwell and you reassured us. We’ve kept him fed, watered and loved but head home soon. I do hope you’ll keep an eye out for him and that he survives the heat.
    I have nothing but admiration for all you do for the animals of Kalkan. The dedication and sheer hard work involved is inspirational. Long may you continue..
    Lynn

  29. Doug Munro says:

    We are on holiday in Kalkan. Many people locals and ex pats have mentioned the greatest work you guys do. Very sad about all the street animals, although we have been adopted by a cat at our villa so we may call in to see what we can do so she is ok when we return to UK. Doug

Do you know of any rescue centres in the area. Thank You Sarah.

  62. Hilary Howard says:

    We cherish our Kalkan street cats, getting to know them over the years. The fact that we are looking after the same cats year on year shows the success of the work your team do over the winter months. We particularly look forward to reuniting with “Little Lion”, a Maine Coon street cat who we have fed for the last 3 years (on Cadesi Demokrasi). She also needs a lot of brushing! Keep up the great work you do!

  63. Lynn Murphy says:

    We have visited Kalkan four times over the last five years.
    We love the street animals and are full of admiration for all you do at Kapsa.

    You’re all amazing and you the street animals are part of the town and it’s charm – keep on with the great work you do to make sure they all receive the care and respect they deserve.

    Hello, my daughter Libby Nicholson visited KAPSA last week – she arranged to spend some time with you as part of her ‘voluntary work’ in support of her Duke of Edinburgh project – thank you very much for supporting Libby.

    In preparation for her visit she asked various people to donate supplies etc. for KAPSA. On returning to work this week one of my colleagues (Howard) had been unable to donate any supplies but asked if he could now make a £5 donation instead. Apologies for the long winded explanation but I wanted to make sure Howard got the credit.

    Kind Regards,

    Graeme

I’ve recently purchased a couple of calendars and any little I can help after. We have visited Kalkan many times but didn’t quite understand what’s involved who looks after dogs ect… I’m so pleased they have you and looking forward to visiting next year. We are massive pet lovers who feed the dogs cats, and most importantly give plenty of attention

  125. Sarah Franks says:

    Coming to the end of our first holiday in Kalkan. I am BIG animal lover and have a dog at home so was sad to see all the strays. A friend lives out here part time and told me about your charity as I wanted to help a dog that was attacked while sitting underneath our table.she already had some open wounds so it was horrible to see her getting attacked. Sadly we were about to get on a boat but if I had known about the vets I would have taken her there. Anyway, I would just like to try and help in some small way. I think it is amazing and heartwarming to know there are charities like yours, and so many kind people who will do what they can out here.

  126. Elaine Miller says:
