Boarding Kennels - Bodrum Area

Hi Everyone,

my partner and I purchased a property in Torba last year. we stayed there for the whole of June where we were befriended by a 9-12 month old street dog. It broke my heart to leave her and now I am trying to get her to the UK. I have made a contact that can help me get her to Germany where she can be fostered for 6 months and get her pet passport then she can come to the UK. I have one problem I need to get her spayed vaccinated etc in Turkey and find somewhere for her to stay for approx 5 weeks. Does anyone know of a boarding kennels preferably european run that I could contact. I want to avoid her going into qurantine if at all possible. Also of a vet in the area that won't rip me off as my contact was.
I have read previous posta about a kennels in Turgetries but they are quite old.

Thanks in advance....please help me help this little girl if you can

Nickee

Re: Boarding Kennels - Bodrum Area

Hi Nickee, I wonder how the dog feels about the prospect of being spayed, vaccinated, being put in a crate and flown out of the country only to be locked up somewhere for months?
Who says that she wants help?
Do you intend doing this for every dog that befriends you out in Turkey?

Pete

Thanks for your help (Not)

Thanks Den

Thanks for reading my post and your helpfull reply. For your information I am not locking this dog up for months on end. She will be flown from Turkey to Germany where she will be cared for in someones home, she will then get a pet passport and come to the UK.
If you can't be constructive don't bother replying

Yeah Nickee, I think its terribly cruel of you to have the dog spayed and hence unable to populate the area with hundreds of starving puppies that will live helpless lives and mostly die or starvation or in a road accident. And how dare you offer this poor little dog a loving home when it could be roaming the steets starved of affection and wondering whether or not it will eat that day!


Some people!!!!!

Nikees, if there is one person who knows the street dogs its Luckycat68, so do take heed of her good advice. She and her husband collect money at thier restaurant in Yalikavak to help feed the dogs during the lean winter months and she is right that many of them are perfectly happy. I have 2 rescue dogs myself in GB and really do understand how painful it is when you see a dog that doesn't have a home as we eupopeans understand a home to be. However, thier life on the street is what they were born to and, in fact, many of them are actually owned, they are just free to roam unlike ours in GB - in fact only a few months ago my husband and I almost 'kidnapped' a dog in Turkey that we thought was lost, only to discover it belonged to a builder on a nearby site!! Its a long story, but the moral of it is that we have to accept the fact that animals have a different life there and pehaps we are not the ones to judge that.
I'm not saying don't 'rescue' this dog, but I would strongly suggest that you ensure it doesn't belong to anyone before you do anything. Contribute to local animal charities if you want to help, and if (like me) you still can't handle the situation, then think again about visiting the medeterean area all together - and whatever you do don't visit Morocco where the sights of animals there will haunt you forever!
Good luck to you and this lucky four-legged friend.

Country Ranch is very good. It is a foreign couple that started it and they also train dogs and have horse stables as well as horse ride training. They also have a doggy beauty show every year, my little Jessica has come second place every year the last three years, always the bridesmaid, never the bride...

Many thanks for the advise. At this point in time we are taking everything or board and looking at all the options, with either getting her here or simply, spaying her and putting her back where she is. She one of a gang of 4 lovely dogs, two of which and clearly intact males. I know from experience that the Turkish streen dogs are a lot better looked after that the Greek ones and some have quite lovely lives, but this little girl has certainly plucked my heart strings.

Re: Boarding Kennels - Bodrum Area

FYI, the CountryRanch website is at: http://www.countryranch.net/portal/english/index.htm

A lot of people have also highly recommended the chief (of Bodrum Peninsular) vets kennels, which are just outside of Ortakent, but I don't have any details about them.
