Welcome to the Kyrenia Animal Rescue Home Page
Exciting development for KAR
KAR are launching the most far reaching scheme in its history to date.
Not only has the office moved to bigger and better premises with room to open a ‘Glad Rags’ shop, selling better quality clothing, but the TRNC registered animal Charity is set to open its own Veterinary Clinic in 2013.
Located on the coast road East of Girne in Karakum the KAR Head Quarters has ample parking for visitors. The Clinic will offer dog and cat neutering, disease control and treatment for street animals plus the usual Veterinary procedures together with grooming facilities and the retail of pet food and accessories.
The KAR Office will continue to give advice and information as well as the loan of cat traps and baskets and, of course, be the hub for all KAR happenings.

Our Animal Rescue Centre high in the Besparmak Mountains provides refuge for over 200 dogs and cats. We are constantly working to maintain and improve our facilities. We employ people to run the centre, to care for the animals and in the office to manage the administration, give help and advice to the public and deal with enquiries. The additional work is managed by volunteers which includes the collection of animals, veterinary visits, grooming, manning the charity shop, running events to raise funds, education visits, the list is endless.
We have an ongoing spaying programme and not only neuter and inoculate strays, but also the animals of people who cannot afford the treatment themselves. We trap and neuter stray and feral cats and after a recovery period, release them again. We collect dogs from the streets, neuter, worm and treat them for ticks and fleas, they are accessed and after putting a numbered tag in their ear many are released again into the community.
New homes for the animals are found through advertising in the local press and visitors to the centre.
We run a helpline that handles calls reporting acts of cruelty, neglect or injury to animals, which we follow up as quickly as possible.
All our funding comes from donations, animal sponsorship, legacies, our charity shop and money raising events. The Charity Shop was given a complete refurbishment in May and also a new shop management team was formed to generate fresh ideas and share growing responsibilities.
As the number of animals in our care increased, the need for further expansion of compounds and kennels continues. The original kennel block built in 1999 desperately requires refurbishment. To be able to achieve this, further accommodation to house the animals in this block is a requirement before work can begin. Additional individual smaller kennels to house puppies and the ‘walking wounded/recovering ops’ dogs are also in the planning stages but require much needed finances.
Work also needs to be done to expand the cattery.
We plan to expand our education programme with visits to the local schools to give lessons on Animal Care. As well as encouraging further groups of children and adults to visit the centre and handle some of the animals.
We pledge to continue our on-going projects ie neutering, education, re-homing, cat feeding area, poisoning, passport for pets, changes in law etc. As well as further communications with government departments and ministers in helping to change attitudes towards the care and welfare of animals in the community.
