BARC (Bali dog Adoption and Rehabilitation Centre) has been helping dogs in Bali for over a decade, providing a safe, caring sanctuary for their recovery, and working with local villages to find them forever-homes.
Many dogs come to us injured or sick, and before local veterinarian Dr Ketut joined our team, we were struggling to cope with our vet bills – at one point, they reached over $8,000 per month! But with his help, we have been able to significantly reduce these bills even as we grow and help more dogs – we can now keep these expenses to below $2,000, while providing the same great standard of care. Having a vet on-site three days a week and on-call is no easy feat, and we’re very grateful to have him!
A DAY WITH Dr KETUT
Dr Ketut’s BARC week starts on Monday, when he works on our community sterilisation program. He heads out to local communities on our behalf, and opens up the BARC HQ clinic to the public, sterilising as many as 1 dogs a day. (Sterilization makes a big difference – according to PETA, one fertile female and her offspring can produce up to 67,000 puppies in only six years!)
