Our easipetcare Vets Supporting Animal Welfare in Sri Lanka

6th October 2016

The first week of October celebrates ‘Animal Welfare Week’ so there really is no better time to give a huge shout out to the incredible welfare work three of our easipetcare vets are embarking on throughout October. In support of the Blue Paw Trust’s animal welfare project in Sri Lanka, our vets from easipetcare Luton, Kettering and Dartford will be spending 2 weeks on the ground in Sri Lanka, and we’ll be following each of their journeys and sharing them with you 🙂

The Blue Paw Trust (BPT) was set up in 2003 to provide free or low cost spay/neuter programs in an effort to help stop the spread of rabies in Sri Lanka. Following the disaster of the December 2004 Tsunami, the fear of rabies outbreaks spread throughout the affected coastal areas. As a result, the BPT have been operating mobile veterinary clinics to sterilise and vaccinate dogs in these regions ever since.

Our easipetcare Luton vet, Lorenzo, was the first of our three vets to fly out to this fascinating island and is currently in Colombo aiding the BPT with their canine population project. We are incredibly proud of the work he is doing for this brilliant project which, put simply, without it would leave these poor dogs without any veterinary care whatsoever.

We think the BPT’s mission to eradicate rabies in Sri Lanka by 2020 is paws-itively pawsome and one we feel very privileged to support 🙂

Here are a few pictures of Lorenzo’s trip so far…
