HAAAW (Home and Abroad Animal Welfare) was set up in 1999 by Janice Down who visits Sri Lanka 3 times a year.
Students wishing to do their Husbandry EMS will gain invaluable experience in handling dogs and cats, feeding, cleaning, exercising etc.
Students can assist in the vaccination programmes including rabies and gain practical experience in injections on all types of dogs.
Disease prevention (worming, de-flea, tick removal) is important and youll experience other diseases not found in the UK.
Students can spend time in the clinic to compare differences between those and the UK practices.
Students assist with outreach programmes to educate the local community in how to look after their animals.
Students will travel with Janice and the team to other parts of Sri Lanka to assist with projects including cattle, donkeys, goats etc.
Students share rooms in a comfortable, clean apartment with good bathroom facilities. Costs are split equally between everyone.
Students will pay for their own food on the project and this is very cheap in Sri Lanka.
Students can join Janice on her trips which are usually April, August, December/January each year.
Students usually have a break in the afternoon due to the heat to relax or swim.
There is limited time off but students can visit the local sites and the elephants if they wish at their own cost.
