Our Annual Bali Dog Idol Contest held in Banjar Triewengsa, Gianyar, on Sunday (December 16) was an enormous success. We continue to see remarkable progress in the way Balinese children and elders in the community are able to handle their animals and in how they treat their dogs.

All of the dogs that came to the contest were in beautiful condition. They were obviously loved, cared for and were able to be handled – we could not have asked for more. Education and responsible pet guardianship really is the key to addressing animal welfare concerns. BAWA continues to run daily education programs in animal welfare. We thank IFAW for their support of this years contest. We also thank those of you who donate to our education programs. Only with your support can we continue and only through education we can see a difference in Bali.
