Animal Aid is a charity made up of volunteers whose aim is to improve the welfare of street animals in the Fethiye area of Turkey.  It was founded in 2008 Calis, where myself and Lucy the Street Dog sheltered through the Turkish winter of 2015.  It was during this time I volunteered for Animal Aid and each day myself and Lucy cycled to feed the street cats with food given by Animal Aid.  Sometimes the water bottles on my bicycle were replaced with tins of cat food and we rescued injured cats too.

Animal Aid is a supporter of a neuter and return programme and also provides a rescue service for street animals, with veterinary care, after-care and fostering where necessary.  Thank you to everyone who donated to such a great cause!
