Turkey puppy rehome fund Bertie & betty

I've been visiting an area of turkey for over 6years now, kusadasi a beautiful place for holiday, but on a daily there are a considerable amount of "street dogs" and cats aswell.  I have followed and personally donated money to Ark  rescue kusadasi who is a group of volunteers devoting spare life to these animals feeding and rescuing them where possible.   It was only this year that I went on a 2 week holiday my life changed forever. A very special dog approached myself and family sitting with us on the beach and visiting us at our hotel whilst sitting in the evening.  This was like a holiday romance of love at first site, however read on.  We named this beautiful dog chaos as she was the leader of the pack and all the other dogs about a group of 5 followed her lead.  
She totally stole our hearts and we decided to investigate how easy and expensive it would be to actually rehome her in the uk.  I posted on ark rescue page with just an enquiry and got bombarded with messages and comments and when I posted a picture of the dog it got more intense!! This was bella well known and well loved by all ark rescue team and many others, seems she has the nack of stealing peoples hearts, but in all fairness she is a heartmelt x  within half an hour we decided this was in our reach to be able to bring her to the UK to live and was put in contact with a lady who already had brought a dog to the uk and we were put in touch with a guy called hakan who runs hunters house boarding kennels and street dog rescue who travelled 300 miles to collect chaos to start her programme to rehome to uk. She is currently in quarantine and will be reunited with us in january and were all so excited.  Since being in the UK another lady contacted me with regards to bringing a dog home to uk as she fell in the love the same as I did, and hakan has travelled down once again to collect her and her rehoming programme is in progress, but the other amazing thing is that two of the dogs left on the beach when we took chaos were actually chaos puppies and tonight hakan has also collected them although we dont have homes for them and this is where my go fund page is for.  I would love to be able to raise the money for these two babies to come to UK, I have a number of possible homes where they can remain together but candidates cannot afford the quarantine boarding, and transport to uk.  It is a costly progress and I'm currently paying for my own dogs but the puppies of this beautiful girl deserve just as much of a chance on getting their forever home so am hoping to raise money towards their boarding and transportation.   If in the event enough money is not raised for their rehoming programme every penny raised will go towards their care and veterinary Bill's until they are rehomed.  Hakan is an amazing man and his life is the dogs of the street in turkey. He has a page on facebook so check it out. Also ark rescue in kusadasi also on Facebook are an amazing group who I must admit have been doing a great job, they have tried over the years to get every animal they come across spade or nueted and this year going over there I saw no litters of kittens or puppies so their work is succeeding however the dogs and cats that remain there still need help and homes. Check them out on facebook aswell.  If you feel you can help Bertie & Betty then please please donate, even a pound will help our cause and you will know that you helped towards a happy ending of these two babies getting a forever home.   Thank you so much for reading our story
