Cat and dog owning households in Turkey 2012-2018
Since 2012, there have been more and more households in Turkey with at least one dog or cat. According to the most recent report published by the European Pet Food Industry, as of 2018, 10 percent of Turkish households have at least one pet dog. This share is slightly higher for those who cohabit with cats at about 13 percent. Nevertheless, compared to the countries in the European Union, this is quite a low ratio.

Cats and dogs inside and outside Turkish households



This is not to say that Turkish households are not friendly with pets, though. In 2018, the estimated number of pet cats and dogs in Turkish households was close to 5 million, yet Turkey is known for its streets accommodating many stray cats (and dogs), loved and looked after by residents, established as a familiar presence citizens’ everyday lives.
