Man Buys A Farm To Make It Sanctuary For 23 Dogs, 46 Seagulls, 3 Cats And Other Animals

This man buys a farm only for rescued stray animals. His private sanctuary is a shelter of more than 20 dogs, several cats, goats, donkeys,  and birds, etc.

Moreover, Mert fosters these animals because he knows he can’t let them alone in the farm. They might be sick, abandoned, or abused before they can find their way to his shelter, so the man always gives them the best love and care he can afford. Here are daily pictures of Mert staying with his animals.

Mert is a businessman who owns a consultancy company. Despite his heavy workload, the man always spends his spare time helping homeless animals.

Sharing the reason why he is “obsessed” with animal rescues, Mert believes that it is his mission. He knows that once an animal (especially a domestic pet) is left alone in the wild, there are chances they can not survive. They need his help while he just can’t ignore them.

Mert began with fostering dogs from forests and junkyards. When the number of these canines increased up to five, the man decided to move them into a larger place, a village farmhouse. Then, he started adopting other animals such as horses, seagulls, and cats.

“I have between 10 to 20 dogs on my farm. I rescue them from junkyards, forests, rural areas outside of the city. I try to find homes for them. Some of them stay with me forever. Especially very old and sick ones. Nobody wants to adopt them. Plus I have 46 disabled seagulls, 1 blind horse, 3 geese (they have a long story), 3 cats, and just today I adopted a baby donkey. For the time being, I have 23 dogs. Most of them are old or disabled,” he told Bored Panda.
