Adopting a pet in Turkey


Are you a dog or a cat person? A pet can add life to a home and make an ideal travel companion during your expatriation in Turkey.

However, formalities or regulations might put you off traveling with your pet making adoption a better option.

Are there any particular rules or procedures for the adoption of an animal in Turkey?

What are the costs associated with adopting a pet in Turkey?

Are there different procedures depending on the animal?

Are pet-sitting options available?

Have you ever adopted a pet in Turkey? Is he or she still with you today?

Thank you in advance for your feedback,
