Kadir Keyifli, who was waiting under the rubble on March 6, saw the Angels Life Village Association (MEYAKO) teams who came to the region to help.

Two members of the team, who did not refuse Keyifli’s request for help, reached the part where Şila was trapped through the gaps between the debris after long struggles.

When the teams reached Şila, they saw that she had given birth and had 3 cubs with her. Şila and her cubs were rescued from the wreckage alive. Şila and her puppies, brought to Adana by MEYAKO teams, were treated at the veterinary clinic.

Stating that she never gave up on Şila, Keyifli said, “We tried to save my dog ​​for days. No one dared to enter there. Finally, the MEYAKO employees braved and donated our puppy to us. I thank them very much. “I can lift it above my head. But it will be fine. A miracle happened. After 29 days he survived. There was a lunch box nearby. He was able to eat little by little. He was born too. All three beautiful puppies survived. I feel like my hands and feet have melted. Şila is mine.” It was a source of hope.” he said.
