Kind-hearted people in Turkey are providing some comfort for the countries stray dogs as temperatures drop this winter.
You may think of Turkey as a sunny holiday destination (we know we do!), but temperatures in the capital Istanbul have dropped to -15°C this winter.
Sadly, the city is home to an estimated 150,000 stray dogs who have nowhere safe to shelter in the freezing weather, so a group of animal lovers have taken it upon themselves to try and provide them with some warmth and comfort.

In a shopping centre in the Bakirkoy district of the country's capital, the residents are even providing the dogs with food to keep them going, and some shops are also opening their doors to let the dogs sleep inside.

We couldn't applaud them more. What kind, generous souls.
