Bird Island Farm is a private animal sanctuary.
In Turkey, animals that have ended up without a home, both big and small, face a tough life. Beautiful people do what they can to help but unfortunately there are not (yet!) enough of those to look after the hundreds in need.
The Farm is a safe place for those that need it the most. Some of our residents stay for good and some as long as they need to. We try to find a loving new home for each and every Dog that comes through our gates - and until that happens, we do our best to give our furry friends the best life, not only in regard to care and love, but also in regard to health and fitness. Our approach is of a holistic nature, we realize every animal that once has lived on the street or in an abusive environment, might not only have physical scars but also emotional ones. We asses dogs from all angles possible, implement non-invasive training techniques along side professional K9 training (Tevfik Gül of SimbaK9), we make use of professional Animal Reiki treatments along side our Veterinarian (VetInternational Kuşadasi).
With the help of these individuals , our Team prides itself on making sure a dog is ready to be adopted and no leaf has been left unturned in regard to their assessment.
In order to do what we do we are dependent on donations both monetary and of course in form of food and materials.
We are very happy to be able to work with local and international charities who all have an abundance of knowledge - together the impact of our common effort is far greater than alone!
Every little helps!
