Our mobile spay neuter outreach programs have sterilised over 22000 animals. We are actively reducing the numbers of unwanted puppies and kittens. Sterilising dogs and cats before they can contribute to the overpopulation crisis in Sri Lanka is the main focus of our work

Why spay neuter?

A single female dog can have two litters per a year, with an average litter size of 4-6 pups who will also start to breed within the first year. A female cat can have three litters in a year with an average litter of 4-6 kittens. It is easy to see how quickly dog and cat populations can spiral out of control. With too many animals and not enough good owners or guardians, resources, food or shelter  suffering is inevitable

Mobile spay neuter clinics

Every month our Sri Lanka Veterinary team conduct outreach programs in a purpose built, air-conditioned truck with gas anaesthesia and four operating tables. We take our program direct to the dogs and cats and communities who need our help. Out team sterilise both male and female cats and dogs; both owned, and stray. It’s a common myth that only the female street dogs or cats contribute to the overpopulation crisis. But, nothing could be further than the truth; irresponsible owners whose pets have had unwanted litters will often abandon the puppies and kittens after a few weeks onto the roadside.

Every animal that is sterilised by Dogstar Foundation is rabies vaccinated. Dogs are also microchipped, and details of every spay neuter surgery, the animals age, gender, ownership status and body condition scores are logged on the Mission Rabies mobile phone app. This allows us to carry out follow-ups and conduct regular population surveys.

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Dogstar Foundation 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 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 Dogstar Foundation 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 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.
