Please help Leon's Sanctuary for Animals with their monthly expenses.

Shehani (pictured above with one of her puppies) and her husband have been taking care of abused and neglected dogs since 2020. Currently, they are taking on the huge task of building a sanctuary.
If you follow their Instagram feed you can see the significant size of what they are trying to construct, and how hard they are working.
As of January 5th, they have started to build out a small area specifically for paralyzed dogs.
At the moment they've got...
- 87 dogs
- 3 employees that start work at 7.00 AM and finish at 7.00 pm (often they work much later into the night).

Sri Lanka is a troubled nation -- hit with humanitarian crisis after crisis. Stray, injured and abused animals are the very last thought.
Leon's Sanctuary for Animals promises to provide a safe place for (primarily) dogs to have the food and shelter they deserve.
The property is quite remote, but Shehani is able to coordinate with a veterinarian (roughly 34km away) to ensure dogs get critical care, as well as get spayed and neutered.

The following summarizes their monthly expenses (USD):
• Food $700
• Vet Fees & Medicine $600
• Transport $450
• Employees $430
• Electricity/etc. $130

Please consider donating what you can... Any amount helps!

This Instagram account -- @leons_sanctuary_for_animals -- is a fake account. They hacked the original owner in 2021 and have been messaging followers for money. Please DO NOT send money to them under any circumstances.

THANK YOU!


A note from the organizer of this fundraiser.

I have been involved in animal rescue and welfare for the last 5 years and became aware of Leon's Sanctuary on Instagram. Many months of chatting back and forth with Shehani, the founder, has gotten us here. I am very moved and impressed by what she is trying to accomplish.

Sadly, platforms like this one are not available in certain countries - Sri Lanka being one of them. So I have offered to assist in this critical period as crowdfunding is the only way to move the construction forward, while ensuring the animals currently in Shehani's care get the treatments they need.

I hope you'll see the potential and donate what you can... Be a part of an amazing project! - Sara

A huge THANK YOU to everyone for supporting so far! The money you have donated has gone towards payments for our veterinarian, medicines and essential transport. If you follow us on Instagram, you know that we picked up 3 abandoned puppies last week, and this little one (pictured) was dropped
