The truth about Sri Lankan street dogs

Lisa Bowman WECare website bioPosted by Lisa Bowman, 13 August 2020

Last year, filmmaker Alex Gatenby travelled to Sri Lanka to shoot a short documentary about the street dog situation on the island.

Visitors to Sri Lanka are often upset by the sheer number of dogs living on the streets – but is there any need to be?

This film explains why we – and other organisations – don’t believe that taking all dogs off the streets is the answer.

Featuring WECare Worldwide (that’s us!), Tails of Freedom, Embark, superstar Surangi, and the man, the myth, the legend – Deepal.
