...IN BALI, INDONESIA
Tens of thousands of homeless dogs and cats, as well as other animals are living in horrible circumstances, suffering every day with diseases, malnutrition and exploitation.
Our mission is to enable the animals to live a dignified life, rather than a life of pain and premature death. We provide treatment and look after strays with the adequate medication and food. While sick and young animals are being taken off the streets, treated by a veterinarian, and sheltered in Eliane’s private home, with foster parents or in a local shelter.
After a full recovery, the animals will be resocialized. The goal is to find them a new home with responsible and loving owners. As the safety of these animals isn’t always guaranteed in Indonesia, we try to emphasise alternatives, such as adoptions to foreign countries with well implemented animal protection laws.
Furthermore, in order to reduce overpopulation and suffering of stray animals, we attempt to castrate or sterilise and vaccinate as many street animals as possible. Local communities are also involved, as they engage with the animal-human relationship. We also work closely with local veterinarians, a network of volunteers and other animal welfare organizations.
THIS IS REALITY...
DOGS ARE SLAUGHTERED ANNUALLY IN INDONESIA, 70,000 OF WHICH ARE IN BALI.
The rabies epidemic in 2008 caused a lot of problems for the population of Bali Dogs and incited further mistreatment and poisonings.
The extremely intelligent Bali dogs who have survived for generations without human intervention now faces mankind as its greatest enemy. Ultimately, their loyalty and love shows how much they want to live together with humans in harmony.
