(11/24/2007)

Bisnis Bali reports that as many as 12,000 ownerless Bali street dogs are treated each year through an animal welfare program operated by the Yudistira Swarga Foundation (YYS). Working with foreign financial support - teams of volunteers, veterinarians and veterinary students travel to every corner of Bali to provide medical treatment and sterilization services to street dogs.

Dr. Listriani Wistawan, Chairperson of the YYS, speaking at a seminar on animal welfare in Bali on November 17, 2007, confirmed that her foundation has been providing medical assistance to street dogs since 1998, increasing in intensity from 2002.

Listriani reported that the annual foreign assistance to the YYS amounts to Rp. 1 billion (US$107, 525), a sum allocated to Bali only after a detailed proposal is submitted to the donors.

Dogs treated under the program are either released back into the community or returned to their owners. According to Dr. Listriani, some 90% of the animals operated on by YYS have owners while the remainder are feral street dogs.

The YYS Chairperson, who is also a practicing veterinarian, said the growing popularity of pet ownership in Bali translates into a pet population estimated at between 500,000 and 600,000 animals.

The increasing interest in raising pedigree dogs in Bali has spawned an entire industry of pet shops and professional breeders. Unfortunately, according to Dr. Listriani, many people are drawn by the prestige of owning a rare breed, while being ill-equipped to handle the proper care and maintenance of their favorite pet.

The seminar held at the Hotel Nikki in Denpasar with the theme of "Loved Pet, Healthy Pet – Everybody's Happy" focused on the proper care of household pets and medical care issues related to household animals.
