We also have rescued monkeys and horses living at our sanctuary. Ketut takes care of them while tending to the land: chopping grass, weeding, planting and caring for crops that we feed our animals.
Junge Wayan is our caretaker – from building new cages, tending to the land, and fixing all manner of things from cages to the monkey roof, he’s our one-stop repair-shop.
Endik and Mita
Endik and Mita are two girls who help out with general duties such as cleaning, bathing and feeding dogs. Endik has been with us since the sanctuary started, and we’re so grateful for both of their hard work!
Ubud Team – Wayan, Desek and Ajik
Wayan, Desek and Ajik come to the sanctuary three days a week to help with maintenance tasks, such as creating new areas, and working on new dog runs (compounds) to break the dogs up into smaller packs so that they can live comfortably and in harmony, reducing fights between alpha dogs and for resource guarding. Smaller packs also mean that we can get to know our dogs better and tend to their individual needs. We aim to have a maximum of 20 dogs per pack.
What goes into setting up a new dog run at the Sanctuary?
– Min 30m of chicken wire
– 3 sacks of concrete
– 1 post every 5m
– 5 team members working full-time for 2+ days, then setting up the roof and sleeping shelter
