Puppies are often abandoned at the roadside adding to the problem further and perpetuating the cycle of suffering.  As the female puppies grow, they in turn become pregnant giving birth to more and more litters. The only long term, humane and sustainable way to reduce over population-associated animal suffering is to sterilise both stray and owned dogs.

The Dogstar Foundation has a clear vision – to transform animal welfare in Sri Lanka. They envisage a Sri Lanka free from animal suffering, animal welfare laws in Sri Lanka are over 100 years old. The end of its 3-decade civil war in 2009 and the devastation of the 2004 tsunami are the background to the animal welfare issues we are tackling that also have a significant impact on human health and wellbeing.

It costs Dogstar just £12 to sterilise a dog, just 24 page likes for Oxford Learning will cover the cost to sterilise one dog. This means each like makes a real difference in reducing the suffering of the overcrowded dogs.
