We have previously written about KAR’s (Kyrenia Animal Rescue), second-hand shop Gladrags in Catalkoy. KAR is not asleep when it comes to raising money for North Cyprus’ homeless cats and dogs and has another two stores inside Kyrenia. The stores are named KAR Charity Shop and House & Home and are located just behind the fire station. One KAR Charity Shop, just like its relative Gladrags, sells second-hand clothes, while the Home & House essentially have kitchen items in their range. When we are there it is full activity before Christmas. The staff says that plastic Christmas trees have been coming in and going out at breakneck speeds for a few weeks now. Outside the store are a few cats and dogs lazing in the sun. They have got their own beds outside the store and seem to be very satisfied. It is an important job that KAR’s volunteers do and they gratefully accept all kinds of donations, money, clothes and other items for their second-hand shops.
