Welcome to Turunç Cats Welfare
Turunc Cats Welfare aims to feed, neuter and provide medical care to sick and injured cats in Turunç.
Turunc Cats Welfare was set up in 2006. It is now administered by a small committee of volunteers who along with other dedicated volunteers look after the welfare of the cats in our village in Turunç, Turkey.
Initially we started as individuals feeding the stray cats that came to our doors and in area’s where cats populated. We realised that by neutering we could do something towards improving the overall health of the street cats and in addition keep their numbers down. So we began a neuter and return programme for the cats in our Village.
We have also set up feeding stations around the village which enables us to monitor the health of the cats.
Any cats that are unwell or have suffered a trauma are provided with veterinary care and are looked after at our clinic until they are healthy enough to return back to the streets.
We fund our work through our charity shop in the
village on the Main Street opposite Homes etc. Estate Agents, we
also have a book stall on the Monday Market, we hold regular
fundraising events, donations and our latest project is our
sponsorship programme. All funds go directly to the cats.
We are always grateful for donations of items to sell in the shop to help such as; books, clothing and unwanted toiletries
We can now accept donations via Paypal. If you would like to help The Turunc Cats
