For stray dogs, Furniture store leaves out mattress

Published on June 25, 2021

Stray dogs are the most neglected and there are lots of stray dogs around the world who are looking after themselves and relying on the kindness of some warm-hearted people.

It is very difficult to imagine how hard their life is. But in some cities, the story is quite different. Some cultures encourage people to look after the street animals. So people come forward to provide food and comfort whenever it is possible.

Turkey is one which is known for its love towards street animals. Many businesses provide shelter to stray dogs. One such business is making efforts to provide a comfortable place for them to sleep.

Dr. Cem Baykal who often passes by Istikbal Mobile which is a furniture store was struck by something different which he saw outside the store. He saw two stray dogs sleeping comfortably outside the store. The thing that caught his attention was the fact that they were not sleeping on the ground, like most stray dogs, they were on the mattress.

So it was clear that the kind owner of the store put the mattress out especially for the dogs to sleep. The owner puts the bed with a plastic cover on. That bed might be the one they sell that day or it might be one of the incoming ones.

It is not the first time that the store has done something to help the stray dogs. In summers, they provide water and shade from the heat. That particular street is known for the love that they show towards the dogs and cats, but still nobody provided them with comfortable beddings.

It was actually a great gesture that the store has done for the stray animals. It is really inspiring.
