Tsunami Animal-People Alliance | Animal Welfare Organization

The Tsunami Animal-People Alliance field clinic provides vaccination, spay-neuter, and general treatment in Sri Lanka’s tsunami-affected and former conflict zones and refugee settlements. We seek to humanely control the animal population while minimizing the risk of rabies and dog bites.
