Fundraiser Recital for HayDos Animal Shelter

We are thrilled to invite you to a special fundraiser concert featuring a recital by concert pianist Lara Melda. This event will be held at St Margaret’s School on Friday 14th June at 7pm, promising an unforgettable evening of exquisite music in support of a noble cause.

HayDos Animal Friends Association is a registered non-profit in Türkiye, dedicated to supplying essential needs for a healthy life to animals of all kinds. Beyond providing direct care, HayDos is committed to fostering compassion towards animals through public education and awareness campaigns. The organisation also develops and implements educational projects aimed at promoting positive interactions with animals. This holistic approach ensures that HayDos not only cares for animals in need but also cultivates a community dedicated to their welfare.

Lara adopted her dog, Koko, from the HayDos shelter, where she found refuge after a harrowing ordeal. Koko was discovered abandoned on the side of a road, tragically pregnant with four stillborn puppies. These puppies were poisoning her system, putting her life in grave danger. Fortunately, she was immediately taken to a vet for urgent care. Thanks to her timely rescue and the compassionate intervention at that critical moment, Koko survived and now thrives under Lara's loving care.

HayDos is an incredible sanctuary currently providing a safe haven for over 800 dogs, 200 cats, and 10 donkeys, along with a variety of other animals. Remarkably, this entire operation is managed by just two dedicated individuals who are now urgently seeking financial assistance to continue their noble work. The sanctuary is in desperate need of funds to purchase food for the animals, veterinary bills and to maintain the facility. Any support you can provide would be immensely helpful in ensuring that HayDos can continue to offer refuge and care to these animals in need.

We understand that not everyone will be able to attend this incredible event in person. If you cannot join us for Lara Melda’s recital but still wish to contribute to our mission, please consider making a donation through this page. Every contribution, no matter the size, makes a significant impact in the lives of the animals at our sanctuary.

Thank you for your generosity and support. Together, we can make a difference for these deserving animals.
