Animal Rescue Creates Music Video For Who Let The Dogs Out On Urgent Appeal

An animal rescue center asks one last time for help to save 2,000 dogs in imminent danger of death.

Launching their urgent appeal online, SOS Animals Sri Lanka created a music video for Who Let The Dogs Out, featuring the inspiring staff and volunteers at their center.

the Youtube video combines heartwarming clips of the team singing and dancing with dogs on the beach, in the vet’s office and sitting in rescue trucks.

The appeal comes two months after the center appealed for desperate help as they were almost forced to close – now founder Kim Cooling is fighting to keep the sanctuary open again.

Kim told the Mirror: “When you see the horrible state these animals arrive in and then watch them recover, thrive and become happy, the thought of losing them and their only home away from hell is too difficult for any of us to contemplate.

“We hope this fundraising musical will help us continue this vital lifeline for thousands of animals on the brink of death.

“It was great fun getting together. The staff embraced dancing and singing brilliantly, and even our resident vets participated because our sanctuary animals represent the absolute world to them.”

In the video, dozens of staff perform their well-rehearsed dance routine and sing “Who Let The Dogs Out” around the shrine.

Happy rescue dogs can be seen swimming in the sea, running in wheelchairs on the grass and cuddling with volunteers.

In the second half of the footage, a voiceover from Kim says, “This is a special call as we are facing a very serious situation due to lack of funds.

“Animal SOS Sri Lanka is home to over 2,000 abused, neglected and disabled street animals. We run the largest sanctuary in the region.

“But this vital project is now in jeopardy. For over 14 years, we have been an essential lifeline to so many otherwise doomed animals by providing veterinary care, rehabilitation and a safe haven.”

Kim ends the video by saying, “We just can’t let them die. Their lives depend on us and we’re counting on you to save their home.

“We are already turning down new critical cases now. It really is life and death. Please help out by donating now because only your help will keep these precious souls alive and well. security.

“Remember that the greatest gift is the gift of life.”

Kim founded Animal SOS Sri Lanka over a decade ago after visiting the island and witnessing the appalling state of animals on the streets.

She has since received the prestigious IFAW Animal Action Award in recognition of her outstanding contribution to animal welfare, and the Prime Minister’s Points of Light Award for her volunteer work in the UK.
