What we do
Spay, neuter, vaccinate and heal
By making grants to charities already established in Sri Lanka, Lucas Helps Dogs supports those places and helps them to continue their work.
We try to respond to their calls for help for emergency cases and help them fund treatments for dogs and cats in imminent danger.
We have recently started monthly spay&neuter programme win cooperation with an established Sri Lankan charity and we aim to sterilise 50 dogs every months.
Only consistent neutering programmes help reduce the number of dogs, mass vaccinations help reduce diseases and minimise the risk of rabies.
We help to promote animal welfare and work extensively with the local communities.
One of our missions is to make a change. So we regularly go to Sri Lanka to volunteer and work with dogs. It is the best experience and we have gained so much knowledge by doing so.
We also research more remote areas of Sri Lanka to decide where the help is needed the most.
Our plan is to extend our spay&neuter programme to those areas which are not looked after by other charities.
Donations of collars
It is still quite unusual for Sri Lankan people to use dog collars. Lots of them use wires, chains, cables, ropes, even barbered wire. You see lots of dogs with terrible wounds from those 'collars' sometimes wires ingrown deep into their tissues. We started to donate nicely fitting collars to local dog owners to protect their pets from the terrible fate.
If you have any spare collars, please donate them to us.
Welfare educational project
With this initiative, our goal is to promote animal welfare amongst local people.
By starting our own education programme working with hotels in Sri Lanka, Lucas Helps Dogs will benefit people by educating them in animal welfare and helping them set up their own foundations and teaching them how to raise money for a neutering and vaccination programme for dogs.
