Recently we have met a lot of self funded individuals trying to do a good job animal well to help animals here in Sri Lanka without a real support system in place, what starts out as helping one or two can quickly become ten or twenty animals . Trying to care for multiple many of whom are sick or even dying is stressful enough but when the numbers keep creeping up that stress can become suffering for the animals and the people.
“Animal care professionals are some of the most pain-saturated people I have ever worked with. The very thing that makes them great at their work, their empathy and dedication and love for animals, makes them vulnerable.”
“Success stories are not always possible. This is often due to medical reasons, behavioral issues, or most tragically for rescue workers, a lack of space”
