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.


How We’ve Helped

  • No mass killing of dogs where TAPA has worked
  • Reducing the incidence of rabies and dog bites and humanely stabilizing the dog population
  • Awareness raised of animal welfare issues and humane population control.
  • Educating the community about avoiding dog bites
  • Assisting in flood relief in India through our disaster response team
