The Galle Retirement Home

at the Galle Retirement Home

Since 2007 DCC means much more than animal welfare - a social project to help animals and people. So  the Dog Care Clinic established a program for the local Retirement Home at Galle.

The residents have about 20 dogs as company and dearly love them...

Unfortunately, the old people are lacking the knowledge - and the funds -
to keep and care for their dogs the way it should be.

So  the dogs were fed - in fact overfed - with cookies and other sweets.
Symptoms were not identified and when the illnesses broke through in fullest
there was no money for proper treatments.

As the result virtually all dogs suffer from parasites and infections ...

Our beloved Selma used to be the representative for all the dogs until we lost
her to cancer after many years.

In memory of Selma, now Grandpa is the "ambassador" of all the dogs at
the retirement home. He, too, suffered from parasites, infections and skin
diseases when we first visited the home. 

Luckily enough the DCC team came to know about the situation on time.

Grandpa and his friends immediately got vaccinations and emergency
treatments and by now he is (almost) back to health.

Even after all these years, the team of the DCC visits the retirement
home at least every four weeks, gives advice to the owners and
also supports the elders...

... cause in a country without a proper social system its especially the
elders and the handicapped, who are shirked to that home, who are in
desperate need of help.

Only too often they are even lacking food and other small basic items of daily
life - thus -
