Money transfer through PayPal
You can also click the link to donate – please don’t forget to click the ‘Family & Friends’ option – this will ensure that we receive all that you donate – PayPal really does not want to profit from your generosity:
This link takes you to the Animal Rescue Kusadasi Pay Pool.
If Pay Pools are not available where you live, you can still use PayPal by making your payment to this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a message saying that the payment is for ARK and please tick the option “Family and Friends” – we will then not be charged for receiving your ARK donation.
