Embark is inviting all dog lovers to come and join them in making a difference in the life of a Sri Lankan street dog.
On 27, 28, and 29 May, at the Embark headquarters at No. 73, Jawatte Road, Colombo 5 from 3 to 5 p.m., they will be hosting adoption days for anyone who would be interested in providing a loving home for an unfortunate street pooch.
We spoke to Embark Operations Manager S. Praveen with regards to the event, and he shared that due to lockdown, there have been many pooches that were unable to find homes, and they hope to change that with this event.
He also shared that due to the uncertain curfew situation in the country, despite the curfew being lifted, many may have travel restrictions and difficulties; for such persons, Embark will bring the pooch to their homes, where they can carry out their registration process.
The puppies you will be adopting will have had a full medical checkup and will be receiving all up-to-date vaccinations, a further three month checkup, and any medical needs they may have upon the date of adoption.
Embark also requires that the home the puppies will be taken into are suitable locations, and that the homes will not hinder their growth and happiness. The registration process requires confirmation on whether you are planning to travel abroad any time soon and other requirements such as having a garden space for the pooch to play in.
They will question whether you are staying for rent or living in an apartment which would be factored into whether you can accommodate a pooch.
Following the adoption, Embark will do a physical follow-up of your adopted pooch’s condition after sometime to ensure that you have given them a good home.
Praveen shared that they are hopeful that people will come in or at least call in with the hopes of adopting a puppy.
