Animal SOS Sri Lanka
A short background story..
We are very proud to collaborate with Animal SOS Sri Lanka, a UK registered charity founded on the vision of Kim Cooling, who after witnessing the appalling plight of animals in Sri Lanka, particularly the strays, decided to take action to help them.
There around 3 million street animals in Sri Lanka, many of whom suffer immensely through malnutrition, disease and horrific injuries. With a distinct lack of safe havens and veterinary care available to strays, our work and facilities are a lifeline to many otherwise doomed animals.
With a determined and dedicated group of friends and animal lovers all sharing the vision and aims of the charity, our vital mission has grown and continues to this day helping street animals in dire need.
How can you help?
Animal SOS is always in need of good hearted volunteers. The "dogs house" - as know by the locals - is only a 10mins ride on a tuk-tuk from the camp and it's the perfect way to spend a day, or a couple of hours.
There are plenty of ways to help out regardless of your experience; you can spend time with the puppies, give a hand cleaning the facilities, help promote the rescue centre, ask your friends to spread the word, you name it!
If you want to give us a hand or come over and see things for yourself, please ask the staff at Sion and they will organise things for you.
