Altinkum, Didim, is a beautiful seaside resort on the Agean coast.
But it has a dark side ... The disappearance recently of many of the street dogs,  Many of which have been known to locals and regular tourists for many years. -  These dogs all have ear tags, which means they have been neutered , So why are they taking them ? We want to know !

( Updated 30th August 2008 )

Update , The killing continues :

Despite many outraged people emailing the municiple authorities no one has had a single reply.
Someone is responsible for the removal of these dogs ! We want to know who and why !
It has been said that the dogs were taken into the mountains and left to die of thirst and hunger..... If true, this is unacceptable !

We therefore ask that Altinkum Didim be boycotted as a holiday resort until :

1 -  Those responsible are held accountable under Turkish law.
2 -  No more healthy dogs to be removed or killed in Altinkum, Didim.
3 -  That it be made public as to where the dogs were taken.
4 -  That the neuter and release shelter get full support from the Didim municipality.

If you agree with this, then please sign this petition.

Thank you.

We the undersigned,

Will boycott Altinkum, Didim, TURKEY.  Until the following criteria are met :

1 -  Until assurances are given that never again will any dogs be illegally taken from Altinkum, Didim.
2 - That a full enquiry be held in to the disappearance of dogs throughout June and July 2008.
3 - That once proven those responsable for the dogs disappearance be held accountable under Turkish law.
4 - That the municipality give full financial support to the neuter and release shelter.
