We are continuing with our feeding programme, but now we feed every two days, rather than every day. This is for two reasons. Firstly, the winter months are the most difficult and the dogs cannot find food anywhere, and we have managed to get them through this. The estate is busier now and as there are more men working there, there are more food scraps for the dogs. The estate café owner, who adopted one of our 7 pups, also saves his food scraps for the other dogs too. Secondly, our finances just won't allow us to buy enough food to feed every day. We will soon have to cut back to feeding every three days and so on, unless we can raise more money.

Mr A has also been talking to the head of the Belediye again, putting pressure on him about the plight of the dogs at the industrial estate. The belediye vet has been contacted and it would seem that they are willing to take a number of the dogs to the shelter to be neutered and cared for. We have no idea of numbers or when this will happen (no doubt after the elections), or if it will happen at all, but it gives us hope, and something to work on.
Fingers crossed it happens!
