Despite the heavy snow pummeling Istanbul this weekend, the city’s stray dogs were safe and snug thanks to a generous local mall that opened its doors to the homeless pups.

Turkish volunteers at the Atrium Mall in the Bakirkoy neighborhood gave the hounds warm blankets and food during the storm.

One of the volunteers, a woman named Hayvansever Ece Öçal, told CNN that even though her heart ached for the homeless pooches, “all of us, if we help as much as we can, can make sure that stray animals are taken care of.”

Photos of the incident were shared by Imgur user Balikadam, who said that the story had already become famous on Turkish social media.
