Based on sociocultural and population studies we can estimate that 75% of owned dogs remain free roaming while all stray dogs roam freely on the streets of Bali.
Malnutrition, lack of vaccinations and various forms of animal cruelty have been an ongoing issue for the dogs and cats on the island of Bali. However, since the rabies outbreak in 2008 and the fear it caused has resulted in continuous mass culling of free-roaming dogs. Combined with the dog-meat trade and cross-breading from the import of foreign breeds, the Bali Dog is now facing an extreme number of threats.
Due to the insecure economic climate caused by COVID 19 pandemic the majority of these dogs are suffering due to the insecure economic climate in Bali whereby people are barely able to make ends meet, let alone properly take care of their own animals or the stray population in their communities. Tourists that often feed these dogs have also fled the island and aren’t predicted to return for at least a year. Therefore, this emergency street feeding initiative intends to serve not only stray and dumped animals but any dog in need of food and basic nutrition.
