Dentist spends his free time covering stray dogs and cats with blankets to warm them up in winter

Dentist Huseyin Yurtseven, dedicates his evenings to helping stray animals, dogs and cats alike, who are left out in the open with no shelter from the winter.

The kind dentist got the inspiration after watching a touching video online. He has since established a network of friends, animal lovers, and volunteers who also help out; he distributes blankets among them to aid the process.

Huseyin who lives one of Turkey's largest cities goes around searching for stray animals to keep warm when he's not busy with his dentistry job.They cover sleeping dogs and cats at parks, open spaces, and bus-stops.

Turkey has already been hit by snow, and it looks like it is going to be a long winter.

He said “I was very impressed by the trembling of a dog I covered in Sultanahmet Square. Her shaking was not of cold but love. When we approached her with a blanket, we shivered.” 

His passion according to him goes beyond when people are watching, he says it is not an activity or a study that provides extraordinary depth, but a simple act of kindness “we reach out to the street animals when no one sees. We had a common feeling that we felt in the stray animals that we cover.”
