We are in desperate need for more shelter areas at our sanctuary. Dozens of our rescued dogs that have been through hell and back are getting drenched day and night due to weeks of heavy rains and they are suffering. It is so heartbreaking to witness. One dog has been treated for hypothermia today after being found drenched in a drain and others will become sick too without shelter. The sanctuary was also flooded today and we were fearful that our rescues would drown. The charity does not have the funds to build the numbers of shelters we really need. We are almost out of funds to keep this project going so have no reserves for more and more building works. We have also got leaking roofs in our disabled dog compounds which often means that these special needs animals are lying in water at night during heavy rains. It's totally heartbreaking as we have nursed all these rescues back from the brink of death and love these dogs so much. We are the only lifeline to so many disabled dogs in Sri Lanka and many others who would die agonizing deaths if we were not there for them. We are currently caring for 1600 dogs and 55 cats at the sanctuary and need to raise approx 20,000 GBP to ensure we get at least 12 robust shelter areas built on our 4 acre site. Please help if you can.
