In Sumatra, Indonesia the number of domestic dogs is growing and there are no sustainable population control measures easily available. As a result, dogs are housed in inadequate conditions which compromise their health and welfare. These dogs currently lack appropriate veterinarian health care and are suffering from easily preventable diseases such as 'parvovirus' and 'rabies'. This program has been created to support more than 800+ dogs in the communities of Sibolangit and Langkat regencies within North Sumatra, Indonesia.
RAW will donate AUD$150 per person towards this animal welfare program, with all participants on the 7 Day Sumatran Wildlife Adventure.
The funds will go towards the ongoing work to improve domestic animal health and welfare in all regions we currently visit in North Sumatra.
