  • Strap:‘‘Adopt A Dog Da’’-– Embar’’s adoption day together with Lyceum International School


A happy day it was indeed when 31 homeless street dogs found their forever homes in the loving arms of the kind children and adults who visited Embar’’s‘‘Adopt A Dog Da’’ at Lyceum International School, Nugegoda on 1h September. Students from grades 1 to 8 were invited to attend along with their families and friends.

The organzsers were delighted by the fact that all the puppies and adult dogs who had been put up for adoption found good homes and new families in record time. In fact, Embark ran out of dogs as the demand was so high, but this was just the first adoption day of many more to come at the Lyceum Schools, so everyone who missed out can find their forever friends at future adoption days.

Adoption is the best means to stand against puppy mills and factory-style breeding, which regularly puts profit before animal welfare and often leads to horrendous consequences for the animals involved. By adopting a homeless dog, one helps save a life and gains a loyal companion. Adoption provides a beautiful Sri Lankan street dog, who often has little chance of survival on the streets, with a safe and happy life.  

Present at the adoption day wer. Lyceum Founder Mohan Lal Grero, Lyceum Coordinating Principal Kumari Grero, Embark Founder/Director Otara Gunewardenf and Nardhya Grero, the organzser of the event.

Lyceu’’s mission to produce global citizens who will reshape the future merged with that of Embark, which is to improve the welfare of street dogs in Sri Lanka while fostering a harmonious existence between people and animals. What was witnessed between the canines and children was love and harmony in the purest form. After all, what better way to ensure a bright future for people and animals than to teach the next generation to love and care for all.animals?
