The Couple Is Saving Street Dogs And Their Story Is Amazing

Stray dogs care is one of the major concerns for any country or region, as they are homeless, so no one really pays attention to their condition and they are left stranded to roam on streets, without any proper medical care.

However, there are people like Samantha Green and her husband, Mark who founded Dogstar Foundation, based in Sri Lanka whose primary objective is to improve stray dog’s condition in the country. Animal welfare laws are an age old in Sri Lanka and it is home to millions of roaming dogs and the associated animal welfare issues that these numbers entail.

She was touched by the incident and decided to take serious steps to improve their condition, and hence Dogstar Foundation was laid. Today, she lives in Negombo, a fishing village in western Sri Lanka, with her husband Mark, both of them were earlier employees in the transportation industry, but now spends their days looking out for and providing medical care to abused and neglected dogs.

Their biggest ongoing campaign is the vaccination of street dogs which they run together with their dedicated staff members and volunteers.

Once a dog is vaccinated, he gets a little green mark on his head to help the teams identify which dogs had been vaccinated.
