“When you adopt from AFOT you don’t only get a new family member (or dog child as we like to call Gracie) you gain a community.”

Gracie is living her best life with her new Mum & Dad

We discovered Animal Friends of Turkey by accident in early 2021 after years of considering getting a rescue dog and by god it turned out to be one of the happiest and most fulfilling accidents ever to happen to our family! The whole screening process was very, very thorough with 4 rounds of interviews and inspections which is definitely worth it.


The committee members work tirelessly to make sure the dogs are matched perfectly to their new families. After months of set backs which AFOT worked through with passion and hard work including export bans, brexit and Covid restrictions our Gracie arrived with us in June of last year. She is the perfect dog for our family and feels like she’s always been here. When she arrived the charity worked with us to help overcome her anxieties and methods of gaining her trust, now we look at what a naughty nosey girl she is and can’t believe how far she has come.  


When you adopt from AFOT you don’t only get a new family member (or dog child as we like to call Gracie) you gain a community. We stay in touch with fellow adopters and share pictures, advice and stories. Animal Friends of Turkey strive for exactly what is in the animals best interests and well and truly make dreams come true.
