Description

KACPAW (Kandy Association for Community Protection through Animal Welfare) is all about making the lives of dogs in Sri Lanka better. KACPAW is a non-profit-making, registered NGO, formally established in January 1999, having started work on caring for destitute dogs in November 1998.

KACPAW’s vision is to eradicate rabies from Sri Lanka using humane methods and our mission is to ensure dog welfare primarily through sterilization (spay/neuter) of dogs to prevent the emergence of unwanted dogs, which together have enabled us to address and contribute to substantially and continuously for over 16 years national level wider issues concerning stray dogs (macro-level) and ensure dog welfare at local level (micro-level).

Sri Lanka’s no-kill policy on dogs shaped our primary work to be spaying and neutering, both unowned (stray/community-cared dogs) and owned dogs (also owned cats). So in KACPAW’s work sterilization is what takes the first place as we see this as the only method that permanently ensures arresting of unwanted litters from being born and left to suffer and die.

We sterilize both owned dogs and stray/community dogs at field clinics. In 2015, we have sterilized and vaccinated 2,500 dogs. Over the years since 1999 we have spayed/neutered over 20,000 dogs. In addition, we treat mostly stray/community dogs for mange and other illnesses, close to 1,000+ each year. And we also rescue stray/abandoned dogs who have horrific injuries or are neglected and left to die.
