Istanbul, Turkey, is experiencing very cold weather, with heavy snowfall and temperatures below freezing. Stray canines risk freezing to death in these conditions. Thankfully, many good Samaritans are assisting these puppies throughout this difficult time.
They were joined by three kindhearted people who provided them with food and cardboard sleeping mats.
Ali Celik took this photo in front of the Bakrköy retail mall, where the canines are not only given shelter but also blankets and food.
“All of us, if we can help as much as we can, all of the stray animals will be in good shape, and street animals need help all over the world,” Hayvansever Ece Öçal told CNN Turkey (in translated English).
Azeri Iran, the shop manager, also provided accommodation for the stray canines, enabling them to stay in her establishment. She took a couple photos and shared them on Facebook. “Don’t forget that only true love warms,” she wrote on Facebook.
