"Pawsome" kindness in Istanbul

Istanbul, Turkey, got quite a bit of snowfall this month, and cold temperatures were uncomfortable for many. But in addition to people, Istanbul has an estimated 150,000 homeless dogs. Most had to sleep in the harsh weather, but a few found comfort in an elegant mall.

The Atrium Mall in Bakiroy, shown here, opened its doors to homeless pups during the snow. Volunteers went to the mall with blankets and food for the strays. Volunteers were sad to leave the dogs at the mall, but were grateful to know they were sheltered from the environment. One individual documented the dogs on their Imgur account, and the photo below shows clearly how glad they were to have somewhere to stay.
