1. What does it cost to desex a dog in Bali?
This will vary depending on many factors, including the number of animals per village. We estimate the average cost is $20 per dog.
2. Why not Euthanase?
This will not work for many reasons:-
- There are so many dogs in Bali that others will simply move villages to take their place and start to breed again in their new home.
- Most Balinese people care about animals and would not support wholesale slaughter.
- If we euthanase and not educate the Balinese people about de-sexing the situation will never improve.
3. Who do I call if I see a distressed dog in Bali?
Yayasan B.A.W.A (Bali Animal Welfare Association):-
BAWA Ambulance 0811 389 004
BAWA Office 977 217
4. Do you feed dogs?
No – feeding breeding dogs will only make the problem worse. These dogs live and survive on the streets with the aid of the villagers and one off meals will not significantly affect their lives. Our partner BAWA does welcome food donations for their not for profit clinic.
5. Can I assist by taking anything when I go on holiday to Bali?
Our partner BAWA welcomes all donations of food, towels, shampoo and other dog accessories for their clinic in Ubud.
