Animal Welfare in Sri Lanka : How & Where to Help.

It's not uncommon to find a box of kittens or puppies dumped on the side of the road. Pathetic, but it happens nonetheless as people continue to dump pups and kittens when their pets litter. Or when they want to get rid of a canine/ feline in the neighbourhood.

Despite all this, there are very few shelters or rescues in the country, and it's pretty hard to get in touch with help when you need it. The organizations listed here are welfare organizations and assist in neutering, vacinnating, rehoming, and feeding strays. Donations are what keeps them afloat, so do contribute when possible. Contact details are included where available.

We hope this list will help.
