Animal welfare at the heart of trip to Sri Lanka • Brookfield's Wade Beane visited Sri Lanka in the wake of the tsunami to help stem a proposed purge of dogs.
Wade Beane, a Brookfield resident who is the director for the HEP, traveled to Sri Lanka last month with Noah's Wish, an international animal disaster organization.
Beane, who has a B.A. in humanities from Beloit College and a M.S. in outdoor education from Northern Illinois University, spent 16 days overseas and joined forces with local veterinarians. Together they formed a program that provided food and vaccinations for animals living in relief camps and devastated villages.
HEP is a non-for-profit agency focused on encouraging kindness and empathy for both human and non-human animals. It promotes understanding of diverse habitats and making the world a more humane place.
"Where the tsunami hit, it was complete devastation," said Beane, who has more than 10 years of education-programming experience. "But once you got a good mile away from the coast, it wasn't all that bad. This was my first international relief effort, so there was a little fear."
According to Beane, the magnitude of the disaster left no part of society untouched. The animal relief operation was overwhelmingly supported by the local government, human-aid organizations and health-care officials in Asia.
Between Jan. 8-23, Beane spent countless hours doing whatever he could to help aid the relief efforts. The assistance provided to the animals will result in long-term benefits for the entire nation. Animals were treated for skin conditions and major health ailments, and also received food.
Beane pointed out that for those who lived through the disaster and responded to the call for aid will not soon be forgotten.
"There were so many people that came to that area from all parts of the world to help," Beane said.
Beane will be speaking about his experience in Asia at the LaGrange Public Library on March 14 at 7 p.m.
"I do plan on going back," Beane said.

Wade Beane, executive director of the HSDC, said the 15 houses built Saturday for small and large dogs will be given to financially strapped animal owners who have a hard time taking care of their canines. The dog houses were built and painted by volunteers.
"Of these 15 homes, almost all of them already are spoken for, so anybody who thinks they might be interested should give us a call soon," Beane said.
For people who don't have enough money to purchase the items themselves, the HSDC provides dog and cat owners with food and pet supplies at its facility located on 4920 Ohio 37E. The agency also regularly provides dog houses and shelters for outside animals when it has them available.
Beane said the HSDC was happy to partner with the career center's students and instructors including Ames, John Wolfe with the center's facilities maintenance, and Cindy Shurelds of the science department.
The HSDC is always looking for volunteers, Beane said, and anyone who can donate items or their time to help make the life of a dog, cat or rabbit a little easier is welcome to join in on events like "Houses for Hounds"
"This is just wonderful that you can bring all these people together who want to donate their free time to help build dog houses for dogs they don't even know," Beane said.
