We Care Sri Lanka

We Care is founded by Janey Lowes, an extraordinary lady who left her life in UK to rescue dogs here in Sri Lanka. Her passion shines trough every thing she does.  BBC recently did a documentary about her, check it out here(link).

We Care Sri Lanka focus on three main areas:

  • CNVR (catch-neuter-vaccinate-release)
  • Treatment of sick and injured animals
  • Education and training

We are so grateful that non profits like We Care exists and we’re super stoked that they agreed to collaborate with us to spay some of the dogs we have rescued here in our neighbourhood.

One morning Janey arrived in a tuk tuk with a table strapped to it’s roof. With her Janey had her team from We Care. Here’s Katie, she’s a veterinary nurse who has been here almost a year.

Spaying and neutering is very important to keep the dog population healthy and the number of street dogs down.

The team worked hard from 8:30 til 2 pm. After a hard day we treated them with some late lunch over at Ceylon Sliders and a surf. Thank you Janey & Katie and all of the We Care team!
