Your love changes everything

Your love doesn't just feed dogs and cats in Sri Lanka

It starts with a meal, but it doesn’t end there. The ripple your love creates means that dogs and cats are taken to our clinics daily for spay/neuter surgery. 

By preventing thousands of unwanted litters, you are stopping suffering and misery in its tracks. Your compassion provides life-saving vaccines to protect these dogs and cats against fatal diseases and treatments to cure itchy skin. 

You are the difference. By stepping up to their plate, you show these dogs and cats they are not alone, you show them they are loved and cared for.

You make amazing things happen

66,463 Dogs sterilised

78,672 Rabies vaccines delivered

8915 Cats sterilised

Your love powers incredible things.

From our feeding programme that reaches hundreds of animals every day, to our spay/neuter service that focuses on ending the overpopulation crisis - your love is helping transform the lives of animals in Sri Lanka.

Meals on Three Wheels

In March 2020, the restaurants, tourists and local businesses street animals relied on for food all disappeared.

Thanks to the support of the amazing #TeamDogstar community of passionate animal lovers, an emergency feeding program was born. Every single day since March 2020, the Meals on Three Wheels tuk-tuk has delivered hundreds of meals to Sri Lanka's hungry cats and dogs. It starts with a meal, but it doesn’t end there, with spay neuter , parasite treatments and vaccinations 

It's you who makes their tails wag. The dogs think you are amazing, and so do we!


Because street cats deserve love too

It's not all about dogs at Dogstar, a single female Cat can have three litters of up to six kittens in a single year! Thanks to cat lovers globally in 2023 we opened Sri Lanka's first feline-only veterinary clinic. Move over Uber, the Catstar Cat Taxi team transport hundreds of cats to our high-volume, high-welfare, cat-friendly spay-neuter veterinary clinic every month.

Our feeding programme

Published on:

Our feeding programme began in 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic which forced Sri Lanka into a harsh lockdown. Suddenly, street dogs and cats were left without their food sources and faced starvation. Luckily, they had you!
