Today I'd like to introduce you to a small, but important charity in Sri Lanka: Animal SOS in Galle.
I travelled to Sri Lanka in January and was absolutely stunned by the amazing wildlife. I saw so many fascinating animals living a wonderful life of freedom (watch the video here) and that was beautiful to see.
I must say, it was also really good to see packs of beach dogs living a life of freedom, however: those dogs and also cats do sometimes need help and they need to be vaccinated and neutered. Sri Lanka is a poor country, where humans struggle as it is. The Sri Lankan people are generally very warm, lovely and welcoming and I have often seen them give their leftovers to strays, but there are always some exceptions that will hurt strays and it is hard to find a vet.
An English woman by the name of Kim Cooling decided to end the suffering of strays in Sri Lanka. She founded Animal SOS and although there seems to be a never-ending ocean of animals in need, Animal SOS have already helped countless animals to recover from bad injuries. The ones who wouldn't make it on their own, stay at the sanctuary, where they can live in peace.
I encourage you to have a look at the Animal SOS website and take a look at their great work. Also: as you can see, this is a small charity that desperately needs money, so please give what you can, so they can continue their great work.
Thanks so much for reading!
