Turkish Mall Opens Doors to Stray Dogs in Severe Winter Weather


A particularly harsh winter storm in Istanbul, Turkey has blanketed the city in snow, closed streets, halted deliveries, and brought out the very best kindness in people!

A local mall is allowing homeless stray dogs to find protection from the cold within the mall entrance. Several animal lovers provided cardboard padding, cozy blankets, and food to make the dogs’ stay more comfortable. And, one Penti clothing store opened its doors, welcoming the cold dogs inside.

Penti’s store manager, Arzu Inan, saw the dogs sleeping under blankets provided by kind animal lovers on his way to work. Touched by the kindness he saw, he opened the store’s doors and welcomed dogs inside.

Inan hopes that the images he shared to Facebook inspire others to do the same.

“Don’t forget that only true love warms,” he posted along with the heartwarming images.

One pup felt particularly comfortable, soaking in the warmth and feeling the love!

Kindness is contagious! Spread the love!
