Yesterday the Dogstar team had a stand at the 2nd EPFS Community fair in Colombo. The EPFS community is a vibrant online community that raises funds for 25 local charities and good causes here in Sri Lanka including Dogstar.
Many people stopped by our stand to talk about our work and took away a selction of our welfare leaflets including our new “How to speak dog” and “why dogs bite” featuring Boola the cartoon dog ( right ) , many adults where espically intrested in our leaflets covering animal care and five freedoms. For younger visitors we had our education colouring book , dot to dot and Dogstar word search.
We met the fantastic boys from the BIH orphanage in Colombo who visited our stand and all received a colouring book and Dogstar Friendship bracelet we all took part in a Zumba class with the boys run by the very energic and inspiring Jeremiah James from Mightystep Academy of Dance
The boys from BIH have a dog called Wendy and new puppy called Whitey and have invited us to come and run a Pupstars workshop with them in a few weeks times.
Dogstar has always strived to be part of our local community and events like this are a fantastic way for us widen our community network and reach. Thank you EPFS community for a fun packed and inspiring day.
