Last week we found a dog puppy in front of our apartments. The dog puppy looked so cute BUT he was very weak. We were instantly in love and were worried about the puppy. We took the puppy to our room (we didn’t want to leave him on the road)
We are 3 girls (Anja, Natalie and me) and have 3 apartments next to each other. Anja has googled an organization “BAWA” for dogs. She called this organization and made an appointment. In the meantime, the puppy had peed in Natalie’s room.
Two people of the organization came to our apartments. They told us it’s a typical Bali-Dog and one month old. One of the guys gave him a vitamin injection and something against worms. He said that he shall eat rice because that’s normal here and that he’s healthy J Because BAWA is a complimentary organization we didn’t have to pay anything for their service.
Since we don’t have enough time for the dog we left him at our neighbor’s house and she promised us to take care of him. The neighbor called the puppy Jacky.
Bali Animal Welfare Association (BAWA) is a non-profit organization based in Bali, Indonesia. BAWA works to save, protect and improve the lives of all animals in Bali and beyond.
