Ozankoy Osman Türkay Kindergarten and Anafartalar High School students and teachers and Şht. Hasan Cafer Primary school students, together with their teachers and school administrators, visited Girne Municipality Animal Shelter and Rehabilitation Centre.

The pupils brought food for the dogs and received information from the Girne Mayor, Nidai Güngördü, about the shelter  which recently opened in the Karaman area.  Teachers and students thanked Mayor Nidai Güngördü and the Municipality staff for bringing the shelter  to the city, which is an important place for street animals.

Güngördü: You can buy dogs from the shelter.

Girne Mayor Nidai Güngördü noted that children can spend time with their parents while at the shelter and enjoy the cafeteria and children’s playground where they can have an active interest in the animals and spend time and love them.

Pointing out the importance of animal love and the responsibilities of animal nutrition, Güngördü said that they could give a dog a new home by buying from the shelter, and talked about the awareness campaign the Municipality is  launching with the slogan “Purchasing, ownership”.
