We’re used to seeing stray dogs in our neighbourhoods. About their living conditions, we only know what we see. Today, hundreds of thousands of stray dogs in Turkey are struggling for their lives under harsh conditions. Only few are able to survive and that is thanks to extraordinary efforts of animal lovers. It is sad that their future depends on human beings. Whatever we choose to do or not to do, that will be it for them.
