Around the world we have countless stray dogs who survive on their own and rely on the kindness of humans.
Stray life is hard life but some cities have part of their culture to look after these animals in need, they provide comfort and food whenever possible.
Turkey is one of the states known especially for their kindness towards cats and dogs, many businesses there provide shelter for these animals during cold winter days.
One business is making sure that some street dogs will have a comfortable place to rest.
Dr. Cem Baykal often passes by Istikbal Mobile, a furniture store, on his way to work, recently he caught something different about the store that attracted his attention.
He noticed two stray dogs curled up sleeping right outside the store, but luckily they weren’t on the ground like most stray dogs but instead they were resting on a mattress.
Clearly the store owners put the mattress out for them.
“The owner of this shop puts one of the beds (with a plastic cover on it) in front of the shop,” Baykal told The Dodo. “This bed may be the one they sell that day or it may be one of the incoming ones.”
“These two stray dogs lay and sleep there every time.”
He stated for The Dodo that he has gotten to know these sweet dogs a little bit, one of them helped the man to cross the street on a rainy day.
He said that the store always tries to help the canines, for example during the hot summer days they provide water and shades for these animals.
This furniture store goes above-and-beyond even in one area where people are good to animals.
“This street is known as a rich area and everyone gives food or water to the local dog and cats, but no one supplies quality bedding to them normally,” Baykal explained. “This shop does.”
Kindness costs nothing people, so be kind always.
