About Us

Nestled in the woods of the idyllic Boğaziçi University campus in Istanbul, Turkey, sixty-six dogs are fed, housed and lovingly cared for. Defne Arsoy and Ahmet Çolak manage the facility. Tentative plans for an upgrade of the facility reflect the university’s understanding that stray animals are part of the community and it is in everyone’s best interest when they are healthy and treated with compassion, respect and kindness.
