Dot, oh dastardly, dastardly Dot. Dot (along with his brother Seal) was picked up at our second ever CNVR clinic in Gandara/Dikwella, in May 2015. He had a horrible case of mange – something we see a lot of in Sri Lanka. Dot hardly had any hair when we found him, and with his fair skin, he was prone to sun burn. This meant lots and lots of applications of sun cream! (We think he enjoyed the regular sunscreen massages – every cloud!)


The usual treatment for mange here is a bath with a special shampoo and a six-week flea treatment that works on mites as well. Usually within this time the hair begins to grow back – sadly, that wasn’t the case for Dot. Determined as ever, we decided to trial a new drug that had come out in the United Kingdom and slowly but surely his lovely hair began to grow back! We did this treatment daily until his luscious locks became thicker and thicker, and soon he had a full coat of fur. It’s not soft, like most of the other dogs, but it’s fur nonetheless – and we think having coarse fur makes him super cool and edgy.


As an original WECare dog, he rules the roost in the clinic garden. Dot is the definition of ‘misunderstood’. He’s seen a revolving door of puppies come and go while he and Seal wait for their forever homes. As you can imagine, they find this pretty frustrating, always being the ones left on the shelf. (Who wouldn’t?)


Dot can be a tough nut to crack, but once he’s sussed you out and gotten to know you, you can guarantee he’ll be the first to trot over for a head scratch! He’s also partial to resting his head in your lap, and giving your armpit a good lick. We’re always searching for a home for Dot and Seal, and we have hope that one day we’ll succeed.


Until then, why not go against the grain and sponsor our darling Dot today?

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows WECare Worldwide to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to WECare Worldwide we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like WECare Worldwide to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that WECare Worldwide will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When WECare Worldwide receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
