About: Meet the Team


Help Street Cats and Dogs was established in 2017 by Isabel, who was deeply moved by the plight of street cats and dogs during a trip to Turkey. Witnessing the harsh and dangerous conditions these animals faced, with many not surviving beyond a few months, Isabel felt compelled to take action. The alarming number of unneutered cats and dogs roaming the streets resulted in a continuous cycle of kittens and puppies being born into a life of misery. This drove Isabel to found Help Street Cats and Dogs.


Isabel is a dedicated advocate for animal welfare, actively raising awareness about the suffering endured by all animals. With her extensive experience in international rescue operations, she frequently provides guidance to other rescue groups on conducting safe rescue missions abroad. Her commitment to making a difference shines through her work with Help Street Cats and Dogs.


Isabel's passion and expertise have made a significant impact in the animal welfare community, serving as an inspiration for others to join the cause.

By forging partnerships with local veterinarians, we provide support and resources to enable on-the-ground volunteers in their spaying and neutering efforts.

Furthermore, we organize essential treatment for sick and injured animals and provide outdoor cat and dog houses to safeguard them from harsh weather conditions.
