    Koycegiz is an authentic town resting peacefully on the banks of the Koycegiz Lake from where it takes its name. Koycegiz has retained much of its quiet charm and is rich in citrus fruits and olive groves. There are many delicious fish restaurants and tea houses to be found in Koycegiz, along with a regular market selling local handicrafts, locally grown produce.
    Sailing boats and traditional wooden gullets cruise the Lake, which is home to many interesting species of sea and wildlife, and is set against a backdrop of delightful pine-clad mountains. A handful of small bars provide the local nightlife.

    No skills are necessary but obviously the love of dogs is required as we have a lot, over 400 can be very overwhelming do you need to be comfortable working around dogs, none of our dogs are aggressive they just want love and attention.
    Other tasks : feeding the animals and a lot of cleaning to ensure the dogs have a clean living area.
    Sometimes help with medical administration and care of the young, sick and elderly.
    The work on some days can be hard and sometimes overwhelming, please remember we do this on a daily basis but we do it as our dogs in our shelter need us.
    We would like also some help to take photos as my time is limited and post them on the Facebook pages
    It's better if you are used to be with animals but it's not an obligation, our animals are very nice and not dangerous at all !
    We except people who are ready to involve themselves physically and especially psychologically. We need people who really love animals and are ready to dedicate themselves to them for a while.
