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."

Kapsa volunteers

  • To offer free sterilisation for animals in under privileged households.
  • To improve public understanding and treatment of animals through education programs.

"I wanted to send you an e-mail now that we are back from our wonderful holiday. My wife and I wanted to express our sincere gratitude to you and the team at Diamond Star for arranging a truly unique style of holiday that we are still talking about to friends and family two weeks after we came home. The places we have visited, and the things we have seen were truly amazing, it will take a month or more to sort through our photos"  Andrew and June Welch - 24 Oct 2022

"We arrived home from Fethiye on Monday, and would just like to thank you and Akin for planning an amazing trip. The gulet was fantastic and as usual, the Ece Saray Hotel was lovely. The staff there are some of the best we have come across, and the breakfasts were great. We are looking ahead to 2023 and were wondering if you could arrange a quote for a similar trip."  Sue and Mike Fedeczko - 28 September 2022
