17 Mar 2023 – Tails of Freedom is a non-profit organisation committed to rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming abandoned and abused breed dogs in Sri Lanka. The organisation recently joined Daraz Donates, and with this new addition, Daraz Donates now hosts ten (10) non-profit organisations developing, funding, and implementing solutions that address some of Sri Lanka’s most urgent challenges and pressing community concerns.
Sri Lanka lacks regulation and enforcement around the treatment and protection of animals, and Tails of Freedom is a formidable voice that works with the community, through a network of volunteers and supporters, to advocate for regulation around pet breeding, animal welfare, and responsible pet ownership. The organisation also works with other rescue groups, veterinary groups, and institutions to raise awareness of how much Sri Lanka must improve in terms of caring for and protecting animals.
Being a part of Daraz Donates will further amplify the efforts of Tails of Freedom and help raise much needed funds for the work they carry out towards the betterment of companion animals in Sri Lanka.
Commenting on the partnership, Shilpa Samaratunge, Founder of Tails of Freedom said, “we are excited about this partnership with Daraz Donates that gives us the opportunity to showcase our work and cause to thousands of Sri Lankans visiting the Daraz app daily. We believe that this will elevate our fundraising efforts and also help us connect and create awareness amongst animal lovers who share our passion for improving the welfare and safety of companion animals in Sri Lanka”
