In Turkey, you can identify healthy stray pets by checking their ears for an earring. This means they have been vaccinated against rabies and are in good health conditions.

It is easy to find animal shelters in Turkey as they are widespread in various regions. However, if it isn't possible for you to adopt, you should try to render help any way you can.

A good example is this Turkish dentist, Hüseyin Yurtseven, who has been keeping homeless animals warm during the cold season in Istanbul.

Doctor Yurtseven save lives off-duty

Hüseyin Yurtseven is doing a great job at keeping stray animals warm despite the extreme cold in Turkey. Yurtseven has been going around the streets of Istanbul with blankets for stray cats and dogs.

This thoughtfulness was caused by an eye-opening video he watched on social media about a stray dog. Since then, he has had a soft spot for stray animals.

The dentist spends his evenings looking for stray pets to cover with blankets to help them sleep better and prevent frostbite.

He also distributed more blankets among other animal lovers, traders, and good samaritans so that they can reach a broader range of animals faster. He and his friends also offered to do the laundry whenever the blankets get dirty.
