During a public health emergency, it is easy for stray animals to get neglected.  But there are animal  lovers who brave obstacles caused by restrictions put in place to  stop the spread of the coronavirus to care for these animals.

Around  200 volunteers belonging to animal rights groups including Rescue Animals Sri Lanka, Adopt a Dog Sri Lanka, Dharma Voice for the Animals and Justice for Animals Sri Lanka have joined hands  to ensure that  stray cats and dogs doesn’t go hungry during these difficult  times with volunteers cooking and serving  food to animals .

On Wednesday, animals living close to the Vihara Maha Devi Park were given meals by these volunteers.
