HAYTAP Retired Animals Sanctuary

Did you know HAYTAP has built a sanctuary for retired animals in Bursa / Turkey?

HAYTAP established a sanctuary for animals who have worked their whole life for humans and have suffered in silence year after year. HAYTAP's main objective at opening this lovely place is to provide their all needs; such as feeding, being cared and loved.

People who work for animal rights usually start with helping cats and dogs and then realize also other animals are being abused. Farm and work animals are very often the ones that are last on this wake-up list. Our rescue initiation starts the exact here.

HAYTAP has finally being realized one of its dreams and established this farm for these forgotten animals. We worked for months to find suitable land, drew plans, signed lease agreements, found sponsorships, and prepared all necessary material details as you see on the pictures on the page.

We write this letter to greet you with the Project that we have dreamed of for a long time. There are so many abused animals, cows, donkeys, lambs, horses, sheep... Our dream is to establish a nursing place for them.

We invite the companies and individuals who want to support our projects that we are establishing in Bursa. We call our projects the Don Quixote act. We know that the farm that we built a peaceful life for their rest of life for those non-seen animals.

As always, HAYTAP tries to find solutions and take concrete steps to set examples. With the 'Working and Retired Animals Sanctuary' Project, HAYTAP will try to rescue as many animals as we may.

To do that, we have the background of the land around 5.000 square meters with a modern stainless stable, loft, solar-powered electricity, and water system.
