It pays to spay

We run Sri Lanka’s largest charity spay-neuter program

But why?

  • Because thousands of unwanted puppies are born every single day here and there are nowhere near enough good homes.
  • Because often those puppies are dumped on the roadside at just a few weeks old 
  • Because some owners chain or kennel 24/7 and for many dogs living on the streets is a better life! 
  • Because Female dogs having litter after litter are weakened and at risk of sexually transmitted diseases
  • Because Male dogs are injured in fights over females or hit by cars as they run wild trying to find females in heat
  • Because dogs are suffering 
  • Because prevention is better than cure 
  • Because there are thousands of reasons why spay-neuter makes sense 

How dog population management works and why human intolerance is its worst enemy

Why dog overpopulation is like a leaking tap

Why you can't shelter your way out of overpopulation 

A professionally run spay-neuter program can make a world of difference for dog welfare. Dogstar's flagship spay-neuter program in Negombo Sri Lanka has increased the % of dogs sterilised from under 8% to 75% and we are expanding and sharing our knowledge and experience with others. Every dog sterilised is a small victory in the fight against overpopulation and the related suffering

We believe it pays to spay in Sri Lanka and we hope you agree
