The room provides a shelter for 29 homeless dogs at night and during cold weather. Animal lovers Volkan Koc and his wife Canan Kapan feed and take care of the dogs.

The couple has been working on saving stray dogs and cats. They founded an animal shelter and set up a page on GoGetFunding to raise money for 600 dogs and 50 cats.

According to Daily Sabah, instead of having a traditional wedding, the couple married at a local animal shelter. They had met at a local charity event for homeless animals.
