KAR Weekly News Roundup for 10th May 2019

Doggie walking with KAR

Now that the sun is shining, we have more visitors coming to the rescue centre. We are looking for Meeters and Greeters to welcome our visitors who are coming to the centre between the opening hours of 9am to 1pm.The role is explaining to visitors what we do and why we do it (a question we ask ourselves often !!!!) – explaining how they can help, showing them around the centre and generally being one of the front line faces for KAR.

Our Rescue Centre is a happy place – a place where our 300+ cats and dogs can live safely, happily and being loved until their own FUREVER family find them.

If you feel that you can help us, even just 1 morning per week with this very important aspect of our work – please contact Elaine on 0533 863 1950.  

Shopping with KAR

Please, Please help us keep our Shops open….. we need people to help. 3.5 hours a day….. that’s all it takes, once, twice a week, the choice is completely yours. Mornings or afternoons…. also completely your choice. 3 shops to choose from 2 in Girne, 1 in Karakum, again your choice.

Thank you Dilys and Ian Guthrie.….

This week it is a huge THANK YOU to all the visitors and supporters who have been to the Centre in the last 3 weeks and left wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. Thank you for lifting the morale of the staff at the Centre, who at this time, desperately need all our support. Please, Please, visit and review us. Everything we do here at KAR is for the Cats and Dogs at the Centre in Arapkoy.

The reviews are a joy to read and really do make it all worthwhile!!

Doggie walking in the mountains

I loved walking the dogs at this place. The dogs are so happy to see you and absolutely loved their walk. They are well looked after here, just need walks and a bit of cuddling. I’m happy to do just that… If dogs aren’t your thing then go and cuddle the cats and kittens. It helps with the re-homing as it gets them used to humans.

So much love!!!

I can’t recommend a visit to this centre more highly. The animals are so well cared for and the centre is so well run. The staff and volunteers obviously adore the waifs and strays that are in their care and I for one came away wanting to adopt all of their cats. Please support this amazing charity, they are truly dedicated. I look forward to seeing them again on my next visit.

They arrived this morning with a huge 857TL. Thank you so much to all the team members for thinking of us!

Just a reminder that Veni Vici in Lapta is a drop off point for the ‘softies’ for the centre.

Every bag donated goes straight to the Centre for the Dogs and Cats.

Our puppies get through heaps of bedding on a daily basis….. which needs to be replaced.

Thank you so much for all your donations. Ian and Vanessa collected 4 huge bags yesterday (Monday 6th)
