Animal Care Üzümlü Quiz Night raises 1625TL.

Animal Care Üzümlü Quiz Night raises 1625TL.

Animal Care Üzümlü (ACU) held a quiz night with a difference last month, a themed Musical Quiz.

The ACU choir, performing songs from favourite musicals, and a Mamma Mia tribute dance act made for a fun packed evening.

The event raised 1625 TL which will be used to ensure the street dogs and cats of Üzümlü are neutered and fed. They have just completed a register of all their street dogs using an online app, where they can record vital information.

It’s a great tool to use says ACU, we also run a sponsorship programme and try to find a sponsor for each dog to help towards the costs. We can now ensure these dogs also receive worming and flea and tick treatment regularly as well as being vaccinated.
