Turkey has been in the news for all the wrong reasons these days. It’s truly inspiring if at the same time you hear some most unbelievable and heart warming stories coming out of the same place!

Recently, Turkey was hit by a severe winter storm. The Bakirkoy area has a lot of stray dogs that were caught in the subzero temperatures, but kind people decided to give them a hand.

Some people who work at the Atrium Mall opened their doors so the dogs could come in and spend the night in the warmth of the sprawling shopping center. Some volunteers brought food and blankets and cared for the dogs all night.

As one of the volunteers told CNN Turks, “All of us, if we can help as much as we can, all the stray animals will be in good shape and the street animals need help all over the world.”

As can be seen in the following photos, the dogs were very appreciative of the gesture.

The dogs were very thankful for the warm bed and they each had their own little area.

Many kind-hearted people showed up to feed and care for the pooches. They made sure they went to sleep warm and well fed.

One of the volunteers said, “All of us, if we can help as much as we can, all the stray animals will be in good shape and the street animals need help all over the world.”

The people at the Atrium Mall in Turkey should be commended for their kindness. Every one of the dogs was very appreciative of their offer.

This is a good reminder that there are a lot of good people in the world. If you have been thinking of adopting a new friend, today might be the day to go over and do that.

 This little guy got the bonus package. He got his own room!

"Hey I heard they were letting us in there to get warm for the night. Good deal! Can you push the door open for me bud?"
