Dear Mayor, Sir, Minister:
I'd like to draw your attention to Mrs. Tulay Avci, an animal lover, who has been fined for her huge work which consists in helping and saving the street dogs in Alanya.
Mrs. Tulay Avci has been taking care of Alanyas street animals since 2003. Over the years she has fought for animal rights, and we have seen a number of improvements, thanks to her.
She is always working very hard for animal rights and animal welfare and is doing the best she can under the very difficult circumstances.
We would even be able to say that she personally takes a greater responsability for the strays than the Alanya Municipality and the Alanya Municipal Veterinary Department has done during the years.
Neither the Alanya Municipality nor the Alanya Municipal Veterinary department are helping her even when they all know the hard work she is doing.
Alanya has a large number of animal lovers, both domestic and foreign citizens all over the world who support Mrs. Tulay in her work through different networks.
For many years the Alanya Municipality and the Alanya Municipal Veterinary Department have failed with the supervision of Alanya strays, many dogs have been poisoned, died in bad conditions after the municipal ( Cikcilli ) having done the castration with an overdose of anesthesia and a lack of supervision after surgery. Afterwards the dogs are thrown right back out on the street with infections and open operation wounds.
Over the past year Mrs. Tulay has protested and complained for a change and wanted an improvement for the strays in Alanya and asked the Alanya Municipality to take more responsability. Several steps have been made by the municipality to improve the dogs' situation, but many of these measures have proved to be just an action from Alanya Municipality to be able to show up them self’s as an animal friendly city to the residents and tourists.
Every year when summer comes the municipality collects dogs from the street and dumps them in the forest, many of them at a garbage dump area, without food, water and care.
The dogs are living in terrible conditions :
- they get sick, starve, die of thirst
- they are hit by the municipality's large trucks
- they are being bitten to death because they were starving
Many of the dogs are not even castrated when they are being dumped. Several litters of puppies are found regularly when visiting the area.
Mrs. Tulay brought puppies who were in danger of survive to her home in Alanya.
Mrs. Tulay has now received a fine of 7323 lira from the Alanya Municipality and the Alanya Municipal Veterinary Department, because she has to many dogs at her home (many of them were ready to go abroad) and because the location is not correct for “dog shelter similar activities” in the area of Alanya.
It´s forbidden to have a shelter in the centrum area.
Or could it be that because Mrs. Tulay is doing alone the work which belongs to the municipality and she is demanding justice and answers for the misbehavior against animals that both the Alanya Municipality and the Alanya Municipal Veterinary Department search a reason to cut her way?
Both the Alanya Municipality and the Alanya Municipal Veterinary Department have known for years that she is doing activities like this, without any complaints, instead they have awarded her with a diploma for her good work.
Mrs. Tulay takes care of the Municipality dogs in the best way as circumstances are permitting it.
She ensures that the dogs receive medical attention (with help off local animal doctors ), get castrated, get food, water and love.
She also works actively to ensure that the dogs will be adopted through a network with several foreign animal and Turkish animal groups.
Mrs. Tulay prepares the dogs to go abroad by acquiring international passports, vaccinations and takes care of the administration in order to be ready to go abroad when owners are found.
We are now demanding that the Alanya Municipality and the Alanya Municipal Veterinary department withdraw the fine of 7323 tl given to Mrs.Tulay Avci and instead start to give her more support and help!
If Mrs. Tulay doesn't pay 7323 lira, she can get jail for around 180 days.
We also want to format a protest to the Alanya Municipality and the Alanya Municipal Veterinary department because of the closure of the dog shelter in Demirtaş before closing time.
This same dog shelter was closed on World Animal Wellfair Day October 4th 2015, when a large group of animal lovers came to visit it.
The dogs were without food, water and any supervision.
ALLAH SAYS: ANIMALS ARE MY QUIET CREATURES.THEY ARE SILENT TO ALL PERSECUTIONS, BUT THEY WILL TALK AT THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT!!
ALLAH DER Kİ; HAYVANLAR BENİM SESSİZ KULLARIMDIR ONLAR ŞİMDİ ZULME SUSUYORLAR AMA HESAP GÜNÜ KONUŞACAKLARDIR!!
