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


Thank you for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

On August 29th (after much waiting and rescheduling) we are finally heading to Sri Lanka to volunteer with WECare Worldwide. . 

There are millions of street dogs lacking basic veterinary care in Sri Lanka and WECare Worldwide provide essential help for Sri Lankan street dogs. They not only perform surgery on and give care to injured animals, but they also provide a CNVR (catch-neuter-vaccinate-release) program to help reduce the roaming dog population and keep the current ones happy and healthy. This also helps towards eradicating rabies in both animals and humans.

WECare are still a small charity. The work they do is so important but they receive no government funding and, as a result, rely heavily on donations. And, due to the pandemic, they’ve had even more of a struggle on their hands with a greatly reduced staff and no international volunteers able to travel to Sri Lanka to help. But they are persevering every day and working so hard to help all the street dogs (and cats) that they can.

So please donate if you can, and share this page to increase awareness of this charity and all the amazing work they do  

For more information and to see some of the incredible work they do, please check out their website:

And follow them on social media:

You can also set your Amazon Smile charity to WECare and they’ll receive a small donation every time you shop. 

Thank you so much!

P.S. 100% of the money donated will go straight to WECare Worldwide. All of our personal costs are self funded.

"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.
