“Education of the heart is as important as education of the mind,” and is a much needed concept today. It with this in mind that the Bio Science Faculty students of the ICBT Campus organized “Pooch Pawfections,” together with Embark, an event to raise awareness on how our furry friends can help reduce stress levels and to highlight the immense benefits pets have in our lives.
In addition, the initiative was a celebration of our beautiful Sri Lankan street dogs, with students spending quality time with Embark’s rescued puppies. The event concluded on a happy note with two of the pups finding their forever homes! We hope that more educational institutions will promote these type of events and be more aware of the rise in cases of cruelty, suffering and lack of care and understanding for other lives.
