We raise funds for veterinary treatment to improve care of street dogs in Sri Lanka


As many of you know, I am off to Sri Lanka in the early part of January 2020 to volunteer for WeCare.   

WECare Worldwide is a UK-registered charity set up in 2014 by Newcastle vet, Janey Lowes. The aim is to provide free veterinary  care to less fortunate animals around the world- starting with the estimated one to three million street dogs in Sri Lanka.

I was inspired to apply after watching Ben Fogle's Lives in the Wild, and seeing the incredible work Janey Lowes and her team do on a daily basis.  

As part of my acceptance for this volunteer program, I am required to organise some fund raising, so I thought it would be fun to involve my friends help for this and do Wacky Wagers.

A Wacky Wager is where friends put forward ideas or tasks for the fundraiser to complete, so for example, a friend suggests I dress like a donkey for a day. However, in order to see me dress as a donkey, a certain amount of money has to be raised first and once this target is achieved then I have to go through with the idea.So if you have an idea, then pop it in the comments section on my Facebook post along with the total you think people should sponsor me to do it.  If I get a good response, then I will run a Facebook poll so people can vote for the most popular ideas.  

Please note that suggestions have to be legal, safe and clean!  

If you don't want to make suggestions then please feel free to donate instead.  Every pound raised will help! 

Cheers in advance!

"WECare are going to save the world, one animal at a time!" Janey Lowes, very optimistic founding member of WECare Worldwide. We dream of providing healthcare for all animals in desperate need of help around the world. Yes, we know it's a big dream, but anything is possible when we all come together! WECare Worldwide is an organisation set up by Westway Veterinary Group, the largest veterinary practice in the North of England. Ultimately, WECare Worldwide plan to extend veterinary services around the globe but initially will be concentrating on tacking the issues with the street dog population in Sri Lanka. It is estimated that there are up to 3 million street dogs in Sri Lanka. WECare Worldwide are in the process of carrying out a 5 year plan in which we will look to help eliminate rabies in the country and also reduce the numbers of unwanted street dogs. We will also treat any sick or injured street dogs.
