An animal's life is far from easy in Sri Lanka.
People's awareness of animals is still very limited.
There are an estimated 40 million stray dogs, whosuffer from hunger and untreated desease.
Only too often they are shot, beaten to death orgassed.
Many people who own dogs are poor and can notafford vets' fees, so the major share of our treat-ments are done free of charge.
Most dogs live on the streets, most every day we have to find dogs in an appalling state.
The greatness of a nation can be judgedby the way its animals are treated
Unspayed bitches produce several litters of puppies everyyear, which are simply abandoned in front of temples or our gate.
These puppies are usually too small to have the slightestchance of survival.
Most of them die of hunger or parasites, or fall victim toanimal abusers.
It is a vicious circle - the animals which survive go on toproduce their own offspring...
..that's why since the very beginning of th DCC a consequentVaccination & Neutering Program on all 365 days of the yearhas always been one of our main objectives.
Please give them hope - Please help us to help !
