Turkish volunteers keep stray dogs warm during harsh winter
In Istanbul, Turkey, where heavy snowfall and plunging temperatures have caused havoc in recent days, Ali Çelik was on his way to work this week through the snow-covered city when he spotted a group of stray dogs who had found refuge in front of a local mall, but they were not alone. Three kindhearted strangers were there, too, laying down cardboard for the pups to sleep on, and covering them with blankets. A pile of food was placed by each as well. Some stores, like this Penti clothing shop in Istanbul, have gone as far as to invite stray animals inside to escape the cold. The pups certainly seem to appreciate these gestures of kindness, and we can only hope that they inspire others to help as well.
