Bali Animal Welfare Association
The Bali Animal Welfare Association (BAWA) is a not-for-profit charity registered in Indonesia. Its mandate is to relieve suffering, control the population and improve the health of Bali's street dogs while educating the local population in animal welfare. Although largely a community-based organisation BAWA also supports several shelters, an animal ambulance, a mobile sterilisation clinic, an education program, a puppy adoption program, plus a continually expanding range of community programs. BAWA is currently involved with the Indonesian Government to help draft animal welfare laws and rabies protocols, and also to vaccinate dogs against rabies in the rabies outbreak areas.
