19/7 Tavsanli


The municipality of Tavsanli built the most modern shelter in the region and considers the welfare of stray animals. Initiated by 3 animal welfare organizations, the medical team led by vet Murat Bekhan will neuter/spay and vaccinate animals until Monday.


This modern constructed animal shelter is one of the most important projects of the municipality and they are now also treating stray animals. A team of qualified vets will be neutering/spaying and vaccinating stray animals. Animal owners are also welcome to bring in their pet.


A medical team of 5 from Istanbul, led by Murat Bekhan, will be supporting the vets of Tavsanli. Young vets will also be offered the chance to gain experience and will be trained by Murat Bekhan from S.H.K.D. in the so-called key hole technique. This technique is the least aggravating method of spaying with only a low risk of complications.


Murat informed us that they will be helping about 200 animals in Tavsanli. Besides, they will be organizing free neutering campaigns all over Turkey together with 3 animal welfare organizations. The StraydogsCampaign Foundation is the biggest sponsor of these campaigns. As to Bekhan: “Together with the Federation of Animal rights (HAYTAP), S.H.K.D. and the Dutch StraydogsCampaign Foundation we will be carrying out the project “Neuter – Vaccinate – return and let live”. We will also train 5 young vets from Tavsanli so they can learn to apply the key hole technique. We already performed this kind of surgery in many places like Izmir, Gebze, Bitlis and Lüleburgaz. After surgery the animals will also be vaccinated, mainly against rabies. We are all volunteers and therefore, from me and my team, I would like to thank mayor Mustafa Güler, the principal of Environment protection Hasan Hüseyin Akkaya and all the hospitable people of Tavsanli for their support.”


According to Murat Bakhan such of campaigns can be organized on a large scale with the help of municipalities and the private sector. They could, for example, donate medical instruments and medication. He continues: “I really love the animal shelter in Tavsanli, a beautiful and modern facility perfect for this area. To be honest, we performed more hard work than money was invested. So I would also like to congratulate everyone involved in this project and construction with the results.”
