Kahatuduwa Shelter ‘Sathva Sevana’
In 2004, the AWPA was fortunate to receive extensive donations which made it possible for us to embark on an ambitious project to build our second shelter: ‘Sathva Sevana’ meaning ‘Shelter for Animals’ located at Kahatuduwa. Mr. Percy Colonne and Mrs. Nalini Colonne, the philanthropic benefactors very kindly donated the land. The building costs were funded with the generous donation directed by Mrs. Anne Ranasinghe, Executor of the Noel Barhtolomeuz Trust, which left funds for the welfare of animals. This shelter is a custom made refuge for dogs, architecturally designed to suit their needs. The numbers vary from 180 to 200 dogs.
