Join us to experience veterinary medicine practiced in the field as we go out to villages to perform sterilizations of locally owned dogs and cats with our mobile clinic. We also dart street dogs requiring medical assistance and sterilize them.
We aim to reduce the numbers of unwanted litters that are consequently dumped. Those that survive go on to predate livestock which results in human animal conflict. We also seek to improve the quality of health and welfare of domestic animals by further educating local pet owners.
We work mainly with Bali Heritage dogs which are one of the oldest recorded dog breeds, we run a small sanctuary where participants will get hands on experience observing, interacting with and handling them.
Our program focuses on veterinary medicine; dog behavior; dog training and basic animal husbandry and is suitable for anyone wanting to take up a career in veterinary science or anyone wishing to become a dog trainer/handler or dog behaviorist.
