Transporting dogs out of Turkey.....

...is no mean feat.  There is a terrific amount of legal paperwork to put in place, along with micro-chipping, vaccinations, blood tests, etc, etc.  Then the transport has to be arranged.  A van with suitable cages for the animals, food supplies and water.   And then the long journey, accompanied by one person to every 5 animals,  through Turkey and Europe to the final destination.

One such journey took place last week, and 7 dogs and 1 cat were safely delivered to their owners or adopters/fosterers.  Here are just some of the photos from that trip.
Handsome Gumbo - From the beach in Gumbet where he was spotted by Mo who could not leave him.  He came to the TAG shelter until everything was arranged for his journey to the UK.

    Don't you just wish you could tell them they are going - after the long, long journey, to their forever homes.
    Delighted to see the next "batch" of animals safely in the UK. Well done Karen.

    1. Yes Elizabeth, it would be great if you could tell them and they understood. It must be quite bewildering for them. Worth it for the end result though x
