Due to incredibly low temperatures and heavy snow in the largest city in Turkey, many shops opened their doors for stray dogs and cats to survive the cold. Human people are going above and beyond to help keep homeless animals safe and warm.
The staff even tried to warm up the freezing animals covering them with blankets.
Here’s some of the photos that have gone viral.
Let this gesture be a lesson to other countries and learn the compassion that the people in Istanbul have for these loving creatures.
