AbouT KAR

Our Animal Rescue Centre high in the Besparmak Mountains provides refuge for over 200 dogs and cats. We are constantly working to maintain and improve our facilities. We employ people to run the centre, to care for the animals and in the office to manage the administration, give help and advice to the public and deal with enquiries. The additional work is managed by volunteers which includes the collection of animals, veterinary visits, grooming, manning the charity shops, running events to raise funds, education visits, the list is endless.

We have an ongoing neutering programme in which we neuter and innoculate the street dogs and cats as a means to control the population of unwanted animals. We trap and neuter stray and feral cats and after a recovery period, release them again. We collect dogs from the streets, neuter, worm and treat them for ticks and fleas, they are assessed and after putting a numbered tag in their ear many are released again into the community.

New homes for the animals are found through advertising in the local press, KAR Website, Facebook and visitors to the centre.
We run a helpline that handles calls reporting acts of cruelty, neglect or injury to animals, which we follow up as quickly as possible.
All our funding comes from donations, animal sponsorship, legacies, our charity shops and money raising events.

Our Aims

As the number of animals in our care increased, the need for further expansion of compounds and kennels continues. The original kennel block built in 1999 desperately requires a complete rebuild.

We plan to continue to expand our Education programme with visits to the local schools to give lessons on Animal Care. As well as encouraging further groups of children and adults to visit the centre and handle some of the animals.

We pledge to continue our on-going projects ie Neutering, Education, Registration, Re-homing, Veterinary Clinic, Poisoning, Passport for Pets, Changes in Law etc. As well as further communications with Government departments and ministers in helping to change attitudes towards the care and welfare of animals in the community.

Please note our office address and telephone number! Details on Contact page.

KAR welcomes new members and volunteer workers who share our ideals. If you are unable to volunteer your services, you can help us by sponsoring one of our animals, giving a donation or leaving a legacy. We rely totally on people who give generously either of their money or their time. If you care for animals, please help.

We have social activities and fundraising events throughout the year. Look out for adverts and posters or contact our office for news of the next fundraising event.

KAR rely solely on donations for funding, please help us to help the animals of Northern Cyprus.
 

KAR History

  • 1997 Working committee established by a small group of people saddened by seeing stray animals on the streets and the conditions they lived in. Compound built in Karaoglanoglu area to house and care for stray and abandoned dogs.
     
  • 1998 Affiliated to the R.S.P.C.A. in UK.
     
  • 1999 After it became obvious that a larger piece of land in a non-residential area was needed the Forestry Department donated a tract of land in the Besparmak Mountain where a kennel block, exercise compounds and caretaker’s accommodation was built and the Rescue Centre opened in May.
     
  • 2000 The R.S.P.C.A. donated a VW van in January.
    A small fundraising Charity Shop opened near Kyrenia Fire Station.
     
  • 2001 A building project at the Besparmak Centre provided a new kitchen block for animal food preparation, a storage area and a cattery to accommodate up to 30 cats.
     
  • 2002 New building work included the construction of a visitors’ toilet, a large exercise area for dogs and an extension to the old house for sick and recovering animals.
    The Charity Shop moved next door to larger premises.
    Endorsement of the Universal Declaration for the Welfare of Animals signed.
     
  • 2003 A Cat Feeding Area Scheme was introduced covering hotels and restaurants. Four additional dog compounds and a small exercise area for puppies built at the Besparmak Centre.
    Proposals made to Parliament for updating the Dog Law.
     
  • 2004 In April Kyrenia Animal Rescue achieved Charity status and changed from ‘Club’ to ‘Society’ with a brand new logo.
    In September North Cyprus was removed by DEFRA from the Passport for Pets Scheme. Animals continued to be sent under the 6 months UK quarantine restrictions and a campaign was set up to fight for the reinstatement of the Scheme to include North Cyprus.
     
  • 2005 A very generous donation allowed KAR to purchase its third van. Meetings with the local council regarding dog registration continued and in October they announced to the public that all dogs needed to be registered. KAR’s Dog Neuter and Return Campaign began where street dogs are collected, neutered and have a red numbered tag affixed to their ear before being returned.
     
  • 2006 KAR moved into new offices in Girne. A generous legacy allowed the Society to buy a much-needed replacement for the worn out Suzuki Cat Catching van used in the Neuter and Return Campaign.
     
  • 2007 The Charity Shop was given a complete refurbishment in May and also a new shop management team was formed to generate fresh ideas and share growing responsibilities.
     
  • 2008 Anti poison petition of 2,200 signatures was handed to the Government. ‘Putting Paws First’ leaflet was introduced. All cats in KAR care were tested for FIV. Two new dog compounds P & Q were built.
     
  • 2009 Portakabin was built as an extension to the Cattery fondly name the ‘Kittery’ to house the smaller cats and also an exercise/play area for the cats was completed. A block of six kennels were built and named the ER block to house recovering sick & injured dogs by a group of volunteers.
     
  • 2010 Two new dog compounds were completed named M1 & ER7. The ‘Cash for KAR’ incentive was launched to encourage the public to hold events to raise money for KAR.
     
  • 2011 Following a fundraising event at Belapais Abbey and a legacy, ‘Pine Walk’ was built. This was a block of fourteen kennels. Also due to the very benefactor we were able to introduce a new member of staff as our ‘Community Warden’ to help with members of the public and catch, collect and return the street animals. Plans were introduced to begin a project to open our own Veterinary Clinic to help with the continueing rise in Veterinary costs.
     
  • 2012 Following change in the regulations at the start of the year in pet travel animals the movement of animals into Europe became easier and more affordable. An agreement was made with Animal Couriers Ltd to move animals overland and trips began on a regular basis. KAR moved into new offices at Karakum. This gave much needed space for further expansion.
     
  • 2013 Opening of second Charity show called ‘Gladrags’ for better quality second hand clothes and accessories. Completion of ‘Doggy Avenue 1 & 2’. Two areas of eighteen kennels to rehouse the long stay dogs normally in the Kennel Block to enable the Kennel Block to become our next project which urgently requires a complete rebuild. Introduction of our new Veterinary Clinic facilites and expanding of the KAR Pet Travel department.
     
  • 2014 Changes in TRNC law meant that all dogs are to be micro-chipped and registered. This resulted in an even larger number of dogs being abandoned and the highest number of dogs ever given care at the Rescue centre. Meetings with the local authorities were ongoing as to the new law requirements for removing all dogs from the streets and housed in centres.

    At the centre further improvements were made, three new compounds were built, the kitchen was upgraded, a hot water system was installed, fencing, gates etc were repaired or replaced. Security was stepped up following damage by intruders and dogs being stolen. Another vehicle was purchased to be used by our Community Warden and Pet Travel. A Rabies Serology testing service was set up for local vets and owners. Our Vet clinic at our office premises was completed and equipped ready for use and steps were made to find a qualified Vet to employ for the neutering and treatment of the street animals. At the end of the year a contract was signed for a Third charity shop which we named House & Home.
     
  • 2015 There was a continuous rise in the number of animals in our care – 50% rise in two years. We continued with our Neuter & Return programme until September when we were reminded by the authorities of the new TRNC law that stipulate that dogs cannot be put back onto the streets. Also the cost of neutering rose dramatically- 100% for neutering a female dog and 140% for a female cat. Our N & R programme for dogs sadly ended. At the centre ‘The Terrace’ was completed giving five additional compounds, a new perimeter fence was erected, drainage wells were built and CCTV was installed. The Kennel Block Rebuild project was launched to raise £26,000 and in September building work on this began. Our Education team continued and expanded their ‘Careing for Animals’ programme in the local schools. KAR Pet Travel became ‘Provisional Members’ of IPATA - the only one in the TRNC. IPATA changed their database to include and recognise the TRNC as a country in its own right.
     
  • 2016 With the success of the Kennel Block rebuild project appeal, which raised a magnificent £30,000, the work was completed and was quickly put to use. A new reception / visitors centre building was purchased and equipped. Further compounds, storage areas, concrete and wooden kennels and new drains were built. Water tanks were renewed and fencing replaced. New initiatives to encourage visitors to the centre are currently ongoing and ‘Meeters & Greeters’ are now on hand to help during opening hours. Our Pet Travel dept continues to expand and was awarded full IPATA membership.

Re-homing in Cyprus

We try to find as many good new homes as possible, for some of the hundreds of beautiful cats and dogs in our care. Unfortunately there are not enough good homes available in this small country. Therefore homes have been sought in Germany, France as well as the UK.

When a person visits the centre and finds the cat or dog that they would like to give a home to, they are asked a number of questions to try to ascertain whether they are the right person to own the animal and if their home would be suitable. If the rescue centre staff decides that the homing should go ahead then a homing form is completed and a 50TL homing fee paid.. New owner of puppies will be given a discount offer for a Microchip to be inserted when the puppy receives its neutering operation.
The new owners are given a copy of the form with the animal’s veterinary card stating the treatment and vaccinations that the animal has received. They are also given advice on feeding and caring for their new pet. All re-homed animals have been neutered except the young puppies and kittens. The new owners are also advised at what date to take their new pet for neutering for which payment will be made by KAR.

Rehoming to the UK, Europe and other parts of the world has now become a lot easier following changes in the regulations in January 2012. An idea of the costs, information and steps to take should anyone choose to offer a forever home to any of the dogs or cats in ur care can be given by contacting KARs Pet Travel department. The lovely stories of some of the dogs and cats that over the years have been rehomed abroad can be seen in ‘Happy Stories’.

WE CONTINUE TO TRY TO FIND GOOD NEW HOMES FOR THE BEAUTIFUL (AND SOME LESS BEAUTIFUL) DOGS AND CATS IN OUR CARE.
