The heavy rains that caused severe flooding on the 15th of May left many displaced and without homes. Lives were lost, people and animals were stranded without shelter. While army personnel worked on rescuing the people, Embark joined a hands with veterinarians and other welfare groups to rescue animals that had been left behind in abandoned homes.
We were able to rescue 35 and many others who needed support with food and treatment dogs and pups who were later reunited with their owners. Among them was Floody, who was found locked in a cage as the water levels rose. The senior labrador was almost blind and completely helpless. He was immediately hospitalised and today has a loving home in sunny Galle.
