According to our credo "Help for people and animals" we have extended our
approved ReHome Project since September 2014 by the DCC 50+ Program.
Sadly "older" (this starts already with dogs from 1 year old) and/or sick dogs
have hardly a chance to find a nice ReHome foster family.
Many dogs were abandoned by their owners simply disposed off in the streets,
others had to be taken from their owners because they were neglected in the
worst ways one can imagine.
These dogs are much too used to human company to be cared for on the
streets via our Daily Tours or need permanent medication - the "typical"
But our space is not unlimited and the - too often found - dog hoarding is an
absolute No-Go for us, a true dilemma...
Since there is no social security in Sri Lanka and by our running project at the
Galle Retirement Home we got the idea to create an (additional) income for the
Actually, not an additional income but only too often the only income for many
elders - thus -
literally a Win Win Situation for all.
Through the DCC 50+ program we find FURever homes for our Resident dogs
and help old and needy people - every 50+ partner receives 5.000 Rs (~ 35 €)
As like with every "normal" ReHome dog the DCC 50+ Program also includes all
medical care and frequent check-ups, so the overall additional cost per dog has
to be calculated with at least 70 € per month & this sum has to be funded
sustainably month by month.
We visit each of our 50+ dogs monthly, and the monthly DCC 50+ member
meeting at the clinic has become a social event since long...
Our first 50+ dog was Millow, here with her new "foster dad"
