    What about off season? Its not raining all the time in off season! Mostly there are short rains or 1-2 hours and the sun is coming out often. Its still really hot here even off season.
    Our small shelter with 10 dogs and 18 cats is now located in Weligama. The big shelter with more then 130 dogs is in Nilaveli/Trincomalee. Volunteers are living with me (founder) at the small shelter in Weligama. They are helping with walking the dogs, feeding, showering, cleaning and catscare. This is an important support for me, as there are many other works to do, to keep the organisation running. Once a month I visit Nilaveli for at least 1 week- that time the volunteers are taking care of the animals by themselves. But of course I am ready to support online, if there is any problem.
    We are offering breakfast for free. There is a kitchen with full equipement, so you can cook by yourself ( or we cook together) and there are many restaurants near by.

    In Nilaveli we are running a spaying and neutering program, streetdogsfeedingprogram and a sponsorship program for poor familie and for disabled children.

    There are many things you can learn from the animals and with the animals:)
    Flexibility, self-confidence, and exploring a different way of living are one of the things you can experience here.

The area is quiet and surrounded by paddy fields. In less then 5 min. by scooter, you are at the beach and the tourist area of Weligama. (Surfing, Restaurants, shops...) While walking the dogs you can see every day monkeys, peacocks and many other beautiful birds...
