Support Local Organisations
The significant outcry on the media 2017 about the cruel treatment of dogs and the trade of their meat, created an increased awareness of this horrible practice. Bali.com supports individuals and organisations on the island that work hard to help make the necessary changes in the mindset of traders and consumers.
Globally, animals are mistreated on a massive scale. In the US, the Beagles Freedom Project (www.dfp.org) reported more than 70,000 dogs used every year for chemical lab testing. Every year, whales are slaughtered in Faroe. Those atrocities are difficult to understand and inflicted on animals from people and cultures all over the world.
But luckily in today’s connected world, there are ways, each of us can indeed help, as consumers and with financial support. We are not powerless.
One way to help stop this atrocious dog trade in Bali is to donate to a wonderful NGO called “BAWA, Bali Animal Welfare Association”, who are doing an incredible job for more than ten years.
Our personal View:
We do believe that any form of meat consumption, in any country, comes most likely at the cost of severe mistreatment of animals. These animals are perfectly capable of experiencing pain and fear, as much as dogs.
Scientists discover more and more evidence, that many animal species that are bred and slaughtered for meat consumption are not as “numb and dumb” as we would like to believe.
The moment we put our dear steak on the grill, we do support an industry that is hiding the truth about what is going on behind closed “farm-doors”, very smartly. The ecological footprint of the mass production of meat is, in its extent, level of cruelty, and negative impact on the environment, hard to grasp.
Let’s work together to make Bali, and the world, a better place!
