In-house vaccination and sterilization

Embark works with veterinary partners to vaccinate and sterilize street dogs brought in by concerned citizens. All pups given up for adoption are vaccinated; the females are also sterilized. Embark advises that male dogs also be sterilized when they reach the weight and age required for surgery, neutering of male dogs is also offered free of charge by Embark.

Decrease in human rabies cases

The number of human rabies deaths in Sri Lanka have declined from 377 in 1973 to 19 in 2014. Falling rabies figures and manageable numbers of street dogs lead to a more harmonious relationship between animals and people.

Mass CNVR programs

Embark is currently running three mass CNVR programmes in Maharagama, Jaffna and Dambulla. A similar program was completed in August 2015 in Sigiriya.
