To say this winter has been cold is an understatement. The chilly winds are brutal and when the sun isn’t shining it makes everything feel worse. Lucky for us we get to seek refuge indoors where it’s warm and we can pile on the blankets and pour ourselves a hot cup of tea. But some don’t have the privilege of going indoors and are forced to stay out in the cold. For one city, the dogs that live on the streets are suffering the most this year – so the people who live there have been doing what they can to make this winter a little bit easier on these adorable dogs.
Istanbul, Turkey has been experiencing a very cold winter this year.
Ali Çelik was walking to work when he spotted a group of dogs inside a local mall.
The dogs were given cardboard mats and blankets to keep warm.
They also were each given a pile of food.
In other parts of town, people are helping other stray dogs.
A clothing store called Penti has also invited dogs inside from the cold.
“Don’t forget that only true love warms up.”
Spring will be here soon enough but in the meantime it’s good to know these dogs are being taken cared of.
