Film to help Turkish street dogs

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, March 2007:
ISTANBUL–“It is with pleasure that we launch the trailer of
Ghosts of the City, a documentary explaining the situation of stray
dogs in Turkey,” e-mailed Spanish activist and film maker Ivan
Jiminez to ANIMAL PEOPLE on Valentine’s Day 2007.
Ghosts of the City, Jiminez said, explains “the necessity
to implement sterilization of both stray animals and house pets, and
elaborates on issues such as the status of the dog in the Qu’ran and
responsible pet care.” Jiminez is involved in
efforts to pressure the city of Istanbul into properly fulfilling a
national mandate adopted by the Turkish government in 2004 to replace
killing dogs with an Animal Birth Control program similar to the one
underway in India since 1997. (See page one.)
