Bali: Our four rescue dolphins, Rocky, Rambo, Johnny and Dewa continue to thrive and rehabilitate in the world’s first permanent dolphin sanctuary in Banyuwedang Bay in West Bali. As our sanctuary is located inside a national park, there are many other species of wildlife that live here.
In some of the surrounding villages, companion animals including dogs and cats are kept by the villagers, many of which are unsterilized. This has created an abundance of unwanted puppies and kittens left to fend for themselves, along with starving adult animals, who enter the forests to find food.
Our team decided that we needed to take action to help the villagers maintain better health of their domesticated animals. We are delighted to report we have begun a collaboration with Bali Pet Crusaders to help sterilize these animals. Bali Pet Crusaders is an Australian and United States registered charity that provides a mobile sterilization nonprofit program for stray and rescued local Bali dogs and cats, and for those owned by a low income community who can’t afford veterinary care.
This week alone we have treated and sterilized almost 50 individuals and will continue to do so in our efforts to provide assistance to wild and companion animals alike.
