Kalkan Association for the Protection of Street Animals

Kalkan Association for the Protection of Street Animals (or KAPSA for short), is a small Turkish registered charity. It was founded in 2008 by a group of like minded people wanting to assist street animals. KAPSA is run solely by volunteers and completely funded by donations. More recently KAPSA UK also became a registered charity in the UK. The aim of the UK arm is to raise funds to support the work in Kalkan.

"We are a group of like-minded volunteers who care deeply about the health and well being of Kalkan’s street animals and wish to promote informed and compassionate action to improve the living conditions of all Kalkan’s animals. We are constantly striving to improve the lives of street animals in Kalkan, and the surrounding villages."

"Sadly like many people our holiday for five people was cancelled due to Covid-19. The date of our holiday meant it was on, then off, then on and finally off again. Throughout all this I can't fault how Akin and his team dealt with all the hassle at a most difficult time for his company.  The refund was dealt with swiftly and our party can only thank everyone for all their help."  Mr Brian Chappell - 2 Jun 2020

"Our holiday in Turkey exceeded our expectations. Cappadocia was interesting and beautiful. It was exciting staying in cave. Istanbul was amazing. We had very little previous experience of Turkey and Turkish people, so we enjoyed the beauty of the country and friendly hospitality of the people. We felt safe and not at all threatened in the city. The quality of food and service in restaurants was good. Efes beer is very tasty."  Mr David Hyam
