The situation of animals in Sri Lanka


An animal's life is far from easy in Sri Lanka.

People's awareness of animals is still very limited.

There are an estimated 20 million stray dogs, who
suffer from hunger and untreated desease.

Only too often they are shot, beaten to death or

Many people who own dogs are poor and can not
afford vets' fees, so the major share of our treat-
ments are done free of charge.

Most of them die of hunger or parasites, or fall victim to
animal abusers.

produce their own offspring...

Vaccination & Neutering Program on all 365 days of the year

for the dogs and many organisations ignore the "hopeless cases" on
