Lucas Helps Dogs
Charity Helping Street dogs of Sri Lanka
Situation in Sri Lanka
A dog’s life is not easy in Sri Lanka.
There are approximately 5 million street dogs in Sri Lanka.
Even though you could say the dogs love their freedom and being a street dog is a way of life for them, they do face lots of dangers and issues.
They are mostly seen as pests by many locals and are seriously mistreated, ignored and malnourished. They are shot, beaten or boiled to death, their paws or tails chopped off or intentionally run over by tuk tuks. With so many dogs, every day they are victims of road traffic accidents, dog fights and infectious diseases, they produce numerous litters of puppies every year which becomes a vicious circle.
Unfortunately, there is a lack of veterinary care, food, water and safe place for them to sleep.
The best way to help the street dogs is to educate the locals about animal welfare and CNVR – catch, neuter, vaccinate, release.
Our goal is to reduce the number of suffering street dogs and cats in Sri Lanka through spay and neuter clinics. Rabies is still prevalent in this poverty-stricken country and we ensure all animals receive a vaccination against the disease. There are millions of animals living in dangerous and inhumane conditions so we seek to fund emergency treatment when it is required, and are working to increase public knowledge of animal welfare by educating locals.
