Vending Machines in Turkey Feed Stray Animals Waiting to Be Adopted

In case you didn’t know, there are over 100,000 stray cats and dogs living in Istanbul, Turkey. One company out there – Pugedon – is looking to make a difference to provide them with food while they wait for a forever home.

Pugedon placed vending machines (out of their own pocket) that dispense pet food any time a human uses the machine to throw away a plastic bottle. The funds from recycling those plastic bottles are funding the project, by buying more food for the cats and dogs. Recycling also helps the environment so people who can’t adopt a cat or dog can do some good just by throwing something away properly.

This is a great initiative, and we hope that it gets introduced to the rest of the world. Well done Pugedon!
