KAR Rescue Centre

The KAR rescue centre is located up in the Besparmak mountains, about 10 miles outside of Girne on the mountain road to Famagusta.

From central Girne, take the road going east past the Post Office and the Hospital. When you reach the roundabout, go straight across. This is the road to Çatalköy. You will go through the village of Karakum, then through Çatalköy. Stay on the same road, you will reach a right hand bend then you will start climbing into the mountains. After 5 miles (8Km) on the left hand side you should see the distinctive Five Finger Mountains, the centre is on the left, you should see the Kyrenia Animal Rescue sign. If you reach the café on the left, you have gone too far.

The Rescue Centre was re-located to the Besparmak Mountains in 1999, and is now home to over 200 dogs and puppies and 50 cats and kittens. The centre is fully committed to providing a caring and loving environment for all the animals.

Visitors are welcome to see the centre and the work that we do, or to take a dog for a walk in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Many of the dogs are very eager for ‘walkies’, it is a great treat for them.

Help is also required to bath, groom, socialize or just play with some of the many dogs and cats.
Work is always required on the maintenance of the buildings, compounds and grounds at the centre and are always desperate for donations to help with the continuing expansion of our facilities.

Expansion and Additions at the Rescue Centre

Work continues daily at the rescue centre to repair, maintain and refurbish to try to make the living conditions more comfortable for the animals in our care. Most of the work is carried out by volunteers but larger projects have to wait until funds can be raised. There are always further projects on the waiting list…..

ER Block

In March 2008, the block of kennels known as the ER Block, named after Edith Richardson who's generous bequest paid for the building and built by a group of volunteers was completed. A further legacy from the family of another regular visitor Budd Graves, was given to KAR especially so that the electrical work could be completed and heat lamps could be installed. The Block made up of six block built kennels each with an outside run is to be used for dogs recovering from operations, injuries and Mums and pups.

Pine Walk

Following funds raised by Fikri Toros & Demet Alkan James at their Bellapais Piano Concert in 2011 and also a legacy received from the late Angela Nicholson fourteen new compounds were built and named ‘Pine Walk’. This area is at bottom end of the enclosure sheltered by Pine trees and each compound differing in sizes accommodates up to five dogs. Wooden kennels were built by volunteers to give the dogs shelter in the compounds.

Doggy Avenue’s 1 & 2

These are two new blocks of nine compounds in each which can comfortably house two to four dogs. These compounds have been built to house dogs which would normally have been accommodated in the Kennel Block or on chains. Doggy Avenue 1 was completed in early 2013 and Doggy Avenue 2 was ready to move into two months later. The building of this area was thanks to the funding received from Sara Macann who raised money for the project in the UK, Gugun & Sema Muharrem and Ann Bosley to whom we are all very grateful. New wooden kennels were also built to make the compounds more comfortable thanks to donations raised by the students of ESK school, Girne.
