BALI PAWS

We are just two sisters with a house full of dogs.

It all started about four years ago when we found a tiny dumped puppy in a trash pile next to a local market here in Bali. We were never „dog people“, nor did we wanted to have a dog but we couldn’t leave her there either. 

If you have ever been to Bali you probably saw the countless sick dogs on the streets and therefore eventually things got a little out of hand and we just took in more and more sick dogs. 

Once the (stray) dogs we pick up leave the clinic we take them home and rehabilitate them. Which basically means work on their fears, integrate them into our pack and show them how it is to live in a home. After that we try to find them the loving homes they deserve. 

Over time we realized that we need to find a more sustainable way to stop this “dog dumping” situation here on Bali. That’s when we started to organize monthly sterilization days for local people. Everyone can bring their dog and get him/her fixed so they don’t end up with unwanted puppies. 

So even though we are not a shelter (yet our house looks more like a dog house than a home ) and our main focus is on sterilizing and vaccinating as many dogs as possible, we can’t look away if we see an injured dog in need. 

So far we have covered all the expenses with our private savings but since our bills are just getting higher and higher we would be absolutely grateful for any help we can get!

Here is what will happen with your donation of your purchase:

Sterilization and vaccination days

Every 6-8 weeks we organize sterilization days where local families can bring their pets and get them neutered and vaccinated for free.
Supporting local families with food and 

medical care for their pets.

Many people here can’t afford to take their dog/cat to the clinic and often can’t even afford to feed them. That’s where we step in and cover their vet bills or send a doctor to their home. Once a month they also get a big bag of dry food to make sure their pets are not malnourished.

Stray dogs medical care

Wherever you go you will not NOT notice the lovely strays who roam the island. Unfortunately many dogs are in terrible conditions. Sometimes we can treat them with medication right on the spot but sometimes the injuries are too severe and we have to bring them to the clinic.
Most common diseases:
Scabies
Blood parasites 
TVT 
Broken legs
Deep open wounds 

 

While scabies can be easily treated, all kind of tumors and joint issues take longer and therefore the costs are higher. 

New homes

Often we can’t find a good match in Indonesia, therefore some of the rescued dogs find loving homes abroad. As you can imagine this procedure is a little more expensive.
