Puppy Shelter - Bali

We are setting up a puppy shelter for young neglected Bali street pups. For the street pups in Bali it really IS a “dogs life” nothing is easy they are neglected , starving , suffering all sorts of parasites and skin diseases.

They are ravished by all conditions, and no home to live in, they are killed to be eaten for dinner.
They spend their young lives hiding in fear, they become flea infested and tick infested the ones which die quickly are lucky, the ones which are flee infested and left to die slowly, suffer greatly with open wounds which are fly blown, they stagger until they drop in filthy gutters.

Puppies need to be loved and nurtured, that's what this shelter would like to do. The aim is to also give medical attention and a shelter where they will be able to rehabilitate and learn to trust again, attention to sterilization, and education for children. We want to adopt pups to good homes where they will be loved and appreciated.

This is to be an important facility for Bali and to help us to make it a success please contact us telp 7904579, email
