    Story

    This is Emine! She is a beautiful, kind hearted street dog from Turkey who has had a short, but terribly traumatic life. We would love your help to bring her back to the UK and give her the loving family she deserves!

    Emine was one of two sisters who, as puppies, were found dumped and hiding under a car at Kapatus Beach. They were taken in by their rescuer and brought up as family pets. Unfortunately last year their owner moved and left them in the care of someone else who failed to look after them. This left Emine and her sister fending for themselves on the streets of Kalkan. As a result, they became extremely thin and frightened- Emine is severely malnourished and despite her thick fur all of her ribs and hip bones are visible.

    A few months ago Emi and her sister got split up. Emine alone was dumped again around the Kaputas Beach area and was then subsequently hit by a car. She was found injured at the roadside and taken to a vet where she was treated and then moved to a dog's home in Kas. We aren't too sure how she made her way back to Kalkan...In the meantime Emine's Sister attached herself to some tourists and in doing so found a loving family who are taking her back to the UK.

    I have been so touched and amazed at the love, kindness and affection this amazing dog has shown us despite being treated so poorly in the past. Emi has latched herself on to me and we have been inseparable (you can't go anywhere without getting a big sloppy kiss first!) She was unnamed and could only be identified by a tag on her ear, but I have decided to honour her Turkish roots and give her the name Emine, which means one whom you can trust and believe in and one who is courageous, fearless and beautiful.

    I'd love to raise enough money to bring this sweet dog back to the UK to join her sister. The cost covers her microchip, blood tests and injections which are carried out over a 90 day period, along with all of her travel expenses and a 6 month stay at a kennels and Golden Retriever sanctuary in Turkey until she can be transported back to the UK.

    Thank you for taking the time to read Emi's story! Please help us save her by donating anything you can.

      Hi everyone! Just an update, Emine has been at a Kennels in Fethiye since August where she has been microchipped and has had all of her injections. Today, she will be taken to a Golden Retriever sanctuary where she will be able to run around and socialise! Emi will be staying here until she can be transported back to the UK in February. Thanks for all of your support! Any money remaining will be donated to KAPSA. Here's an adorable photo of Emi as a puppy when she was found hiding under a car with her sister after being dumped by her owner.
