I am an animal lover who believes that everyone should try to make a difference when they have the opportunity. With Mons Bons, I found a passionate way to create my own opportunity that would allow me to increase animal welfare. If you have some time, you can read the story of my company and me below.
Thank you in advance for sparing your time:)
- My Love For Animals -
Since I was a little child, I've always had a special connection with animals. I used to save my pocket money in order to buy food for stray dogs that lived in my neighborhood. As I grew up, I continued to help as much as I can. Before moving to Berlin I lived in Istanbul, and I used to carry food for stray dogs in my car. And during the winter, I used to drive to the isolated districts of Istanbul to feed the animals out there, because it is really hard for them to find something to eat. I am currently volunteering in an organization that finds homes for dogs in Europe and when I travel from Istanbul to Berlin, I carry the adopted dogs with me to their new homes. However, I’ve never felt satisfied with my own help, because there are always more dogs that need a helping hand.
- Conditions Of Dogs In Istanbul -
In Istanbul, there are 130.000 stray dogs, and most of them are in very bad conditions. The shelters are the worst places they can ever be because all of the shelters have dogs beyond their capacities and there is no enough food and room for every one of them. Due to the overpopulation of the city, the government collects and sends every dog in the streets to forests where they cannot find water or food.
My biggest dream is contributing to animal welfare around the world. To make my dreams come true, I’ve established Mons Bons, and I will donate a part of its profit to the animals in Istanbul.
Ps. Special thanks to Mona, who has been inspiring me on all of my designs.
All the best,
