To put compassion into action and create sustainable change for Bali’s animals.
We envision a Bali in which each village is its own natural sanctuary for animals; where all animals are routinely vaccinated, healthy, cared for, and treated with compassion and respect, and the population is controlled at a manageable and sustainable level.
Who is Bali Animal Welfare Association?
BAWA is a registered non-profit and 501(c)3 founded in 2007 by Janice Girardi, an American resident who has made Bali her home for over 30 years.
We do absolutely everything in our power to change the lives of animals in Bali, by changing the world that they live in.
Until suffering is no longer ignored; until all lives are valued equally.
Our goal is not to continuously clean up the damage caused by cruelty and neglect to
animals, but to work within communities to influence a positive shift in attitudes and
behaviours, until rescues and shelters are all but irrelevant.
