Legacies are vital to Kyrenia Animal Rescue. A legacy will ensure that the life saving work of the Kyrenia Animal Rescue can continue for years to come.
How can I leave a legacy to KAR?
There are a number of ways you can leave a gift to KAR:
A residuary legacy is a gift of the residue of your estate, or a percentage of the residue (the amount left after your debts have been settled and any legacies you leave to other people have been paid). If you leave your whole estate as a gift, this is also known as a residuary legacy. The value of such a gift is least likely to be cut by inflation.
A gift of a specified sum of money, decided when the will or codicil is written, is called a pecuniary legacy.
If you make a gift of a particular item this is called a specific legacy. This includes stocks and shares, the proceeds of a life assurance policy, property, furniture and jewellery.
Wording your legacy
If you decide to make a will in favour of KAR, you will need to contact your solicitor and tell them what you want to do. He or she will need to know the form of words that are usually used when including KAR in a will, for example, the following words can be used:
"I give …… to the Girne Hayvanları Kurtarma Derneği, PO Box 450, Mersin 10, Turkey. I further direct that the receipt of the honorary treasurer or other proper officer of Girne Hayvanları Kurtarma Derneği for the time being shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy."
Every dog at the KAR Rescue Centre is given a name and Identification number. That information is written on a piece of plastic hose pipe which is slipped through the collar. We need many collars because we have many dogs!
If you are visiting North Cyprus and have the room, could you slip some collars in to your suitcase?
Medium size Blue, Red or Yellow webbing type collars with buckle fastenings please. If you are not planning a visit, perhaps a parcel sent with friends or posted to KAR, P.O. Box 450, Girne, Mersin 10, Turkey. (Make sure you send it 'internationally signed for'.)
Are you moving to the TRNC? If you are and can spare a little space in your container, please let us know. We are often given donations and gifts in the UK that are too large or bulky for postage and therefore need the transportation for.
The Centre is open to visitors every day from 9am until 1pm.
Visit our Rescue Centre:
Offer a home to one of the beautiful dogs or cats in our care.
Walk some of the dogs in the shade of the Five Finger Mountain, they are all eager for walkies.

Bath or groom some of the animals.
Spend some time playing and socializing with the dogs and cats.
There is always so much to do and the animals enjoy a visit or two!
Is a very enjoyable experience for both you and the dogs. The walks take place in the beautiful countryside of the Five Fingers Mountain range. We provide a small map which gives you routes you can take which can be a short distance along level ground or longer distance on tracks near the top of the mountain with stunning views. Also tracks that lead to the nearby café! We provide an information sheet with a few do’s and don'ts! and make it a rule that no more than two dogs per adult are taken at one time, the staff will help you choose dogs suitable for you. Away from the centre the dogs can be let off their leads to enjoy a good run around. Don’t worry they know their way back, and more importantly, they know exactly when feeding times are! Some visitors find that one or more of the ‘house’ dogs, will join them, even though they were not invited! One couple went for a walk with four dogs and one of the terriers in compound A decided that he wasn’t going to be left behind and opened two gates. The couple were joined by another fifteen dogs with smiles on their faces and tails wagging like mad!
Many visitors come year after year to walk the dogs and say that it is highlight of their holiday.
But our ultimate aim is to find homes for all the dogs and cats in our care. Why not visit our Rescue Centre and see our beautiful animals.
