DARKNESS IN HELL

IN HELL

 

The images you are about to see where taken in Sariyer last year. SHKD found the place in the condition you are about to see. This is the story of the rescue of Fathma Balkanlis’ dogs and their treatment and recovery. The images tell the story themselves..

 Finally this story is out.WeI knew about this for a long time but was unable to say anything.I have always said Fatma should be STOPPED from having any animals. Sadly she still has a place opposite Ciragan Palace and she is still collecting money. Name protected – Istanbul

 Years ago – April 1999- Istanbul Buyuksehir Belediye closed its massive Hasdal rubbish dump. There were over 1000 dogs living on this ‘copluk’, the weakest ones starving to death. Most had been dumped there by belediyes. As the rubbish dump was being covered over with earth, it was obvious that these dogs would either starve to death or invade surrounding suburbs and villages.

Robert Smith, the Founder of SHKD was so upset by the sight of these dogs that decided to set up a neutering clinic on the edge of the rubbish dump, neuter, vaccinate, treat and feed these dogs. The Vali gave a tent, Mustafa Sarigul gave a portakabin and we set up the clinic. One night in July ’99 the clinic was destroyed as revenge for an anti-poisoning demonstration. We then made a shelter on the site of the destroyed clinic, where the 1000 dogs lived and were fed by SHKD.We sent as many of these dogs to new homes in Western Europe as we could, as the alternative was to put them to sleep or keep them in our shelter for life.
The reason why we spend so much of our own money – SHKD receives almost no donations – on rehoming dogs in W. Europe is that the alternative is to keep them in our open forest shelter for the rest of their lives.

Contrary to ridiculous allegations SHKD receives no money from the shelters or families which take our dogs and this can be confirmed by anybody that is participating in our Lets Adopt program. I am happy that they find a good home. This also saves us the cost of feeding and caring for those dogs for the rest of their lives.
Shelters, unless properly financed, become death camps and are a waste of money. Dogs must be neutered, vaccinated and returned, and people must be educated to take responsibility for their local community dogs.
We cannot and we will not however give the names and addresses of families or foster homes who have adopted our dogs without their permission. If these people are harassed by fanatics (there many many MANY of those) who accuse them of mistreating dogs etc. etc. we would be responsible. We have no moral right to reveal their names and addresses without their permission, and to do so would in any case be illegal.
However some of the accusations made and stories told by some of those people on the internet are so false, so misleading, so twisted that one wonders whether these ladies are genuinely interested in helping animals or are only interested in their own egos. There is a limit to how much time we can spend dealing with such people. We prefer to spend our time neutering dogs, caring for them, rescuing them when necessary, rehoming them than corresponding on the internet, which does not help a single animal.
However many questions we answer, however many details of happily rehomed dogs we give, however many falsehoods we put right, there are some spiteful, jealous ladies who believe they are the sole saviours of dogs in the world and everyone else is evil, and who psychologically cannot accept that other people are doing good work for animal welfare.

Sending Turkish dogs to new homes in Europe does nothing to solve the stray dog problem in Turkey. But for as long as the municipalities continue to kill dogs or to imprison them in canine Auschwitzes, for as long as the neutered dogs cannot be returned to their territories, our alternatives are (1) euthanasia (2) keeping the dogs in our shelters for life or (3) rehoming them to families locally and abroad. We prefer option (3) where possible, despite the expense.

 

 

 

 

 

Yillar once – Nisan 1999’da – Istanbul Buyuksehir Belediyesi buyuk Hasdal coplugunu kapatti. Bu coplukte yasayan 1000’i askin kopek vardi ve zayiflar acliktan oluyordu. Bu kopeklerin cogu oraya belediyelerce atilmisti. Copluk kapatilip uzerine toprak dokulunce bu kopekler ya acliktan olecekti ya da cevredeki yasama alanlarina dagilacaklardi. SHKD’nin kurucusu olan Robert Smith buradaki caresiz kopeklerin goruntusune o kadar uzuldu ki coplugun hemen yaninda bir kisirlastirma klinigi acmaya karar verdi. Amaci kopekleri kisirlastirmak, asilamak, tedavi etmek ve beslemekti. Vali bir cadir, Mustafa Sarigul ise bir portakabin verdi ve klinigi actik. Zehirlemeye karsi oldugumuz icin oc almak amaciyla Temmuz 1999’da bir gece klinigimiz yok edildi. Bunun uzerine yok edilen klinigimizin alanina SHDK olarak 1.000 tane kopegin yasayacagi ve bakilacagi bir barinak kurduk.
Uyutulmalarina ya da butun hayatlarini bizim barinagimizda gecirmelerine alternatif olarak mumkun oldugunca cok kopegi Bati Avrupa’da evlere yerlestirdik. Bizim kendi cebimizden bu kadar cok parayi – SHKD neredeyse hic bagis almiyor – kopekleri Bati Avrupa’daki evlere sahiplendirmek icin harcamamizin nedeni buna tek alternatiflerinin butun hayatlarini bizim acik orman barinagimizda gecirmeleri olmasiydi.
Gulunc iddialarin aksine SHKD ne barinaklardan ne de kopekleri sahiplenen ailelerden hic para almamaktadir ve bu Let’s Adopt (Haydi Sahiplen) kampanyamiza katilmis olan herkes tarafindan dogrulanabilir. Ben onlari sahiplendirdigimizde bir ev bulabilmis olmalarina cok seviniyorum. Ayrica hayatlarinin geri kalaninda yapacagimiz besleme ve bakim masraflari da ortadan kalkmis oluyor.
Barinaklar eger maddi olanaklar yeterli degilse olum kamplari haline donusuyorlar ve bosa para harcaniyor. Kopeklerin kisirlastirilip, asilanip yerlerine geri birakilmasi ve insanlarin kendi bolgelerindeki bu kopeklerin sorumlulugunu almalari icin egitilmeleri gerekiyor.

Kopeklerimizi sahiplenen ailelerin isimlerini ve iletisim bilgilerini onlarin izinleri olmadan veremeyiz/vermeyecegiz. Eger bu kisiler fanatikler (ki bunlardan cok cok COK var) tarafindan rahatsiz edilir ve kopeklere kotu davranmak, vs. nedeniyle suclanirlarsa bu bizim hatamiz olmus olur. Onlarin isim ve adreslerini izinleri olmadan paylasmamiz ne ahlaki olarak dogru ne de yasal.

Internette bazi kisilerin anlattiklari hikayeler ve suclamalar o kadar yanlis, o kadar yaniltici ve o kadar saptirilmis ki, insan acaba bu kisiler hayvanlara yardim etmekle mi ilgileniyor yoksa sadece kendi egolariyla mi diye merak etmeden duramiyor. Bu gibi insanlarla ilgilenebilecegimiz zaman sinirli. Zamanimizi kopekleri kisirlastirma, onlarin bakimini ustlenme, gerektiginde kurtarma ve sahiplendirme ile gecirmeyi tercih ediyoruz, cunku internettekilere cevap vererek zaman gecirmemiz bir tek hayvana bile yarar saglamiyor.

Sorulara ne kadar cevap versek de, sahiplendirilmis mutlu kopeklerle ilgili ne kadar bilgi versek de, ne kadar yanlisi duzeltmeye calissak da kendisini kopeklerin dunyadaki tek kurtaricisi olarak goren, kendisi disindaki herkesin kotu olduguna inanan ve baskalarinin da hayvanlarin iyiligi icin birseyler basarmakta oldugunu psikolojik olarak kabul edemeyen kindar, kiskanc kisiler her zaman oluyor.

Turkiye’deki kopekleri Avrupa’da sahiplendirmek Turkiye’deki sokak kopegi sorununa bir cozum degildir. Ancak belediyeler kopekleri oldurmeye ya da kopek hapishanelerine koymaya devam ettigi surece, kisirlastirilmis kopekleri aldigimiz yerlere geri koyamadigimiz surece alternatiflerimiz sunlar: (1) otanazi (2) kopekleri hayatlarinin sonuna kadar barinakta tutmak (3) kopekleri Turkiye icinde ya da disinda ailelere sahiplendirmek. Maliyeti cok yuksek oldugu halde biz mumkun oldugunda hep 3. Secenegi tercih ediyoruz.

Gormek uzere oldugunuz resimler gecen sene Sariyer’de cekildiler. SHDK burayi gormek uzere oldugunuz sekilde buldu. Kopekler gormek uzere oldugunuz haldeydiler. Bu Fathma Balkanli’nin kopeklerinin kurtulma, tedavi edilme ve iyilesme surecinin hikayesi. Resimler hikayeyi kendileri anlatiyor…
