Our Work

Street Feeding & Treatment

Every day, the numbers of stray dogs and cats across Bali are increasing, meaning the struggle to survive increases for all: battling for food scraps and dealing with afflictions like mange, ticks, fleas and worms. These animals are generally unloved, and often traumatised from abuse. As a result, they may not trust human intentions, making our job that much harder.

 

Every day we deliver wet and dry food for more than 30 animals animals in neighborhoods across Tabanan in Bali. We are not an animal shelter but provide direct support to homeless animals by street feeding, and providing essential treatments like deworming or flea treatments, as required. And it is not only street animals - we also support local animal owners who cannot afford food and medication for their animals, and give advice on animal care. 

Sterilization

I'

At Little Steps Matter we are committed to reducing unnecessary suffering and the number of unwanted animals in Bali. The most effective method to do this is by sterilization, so we organize monthly mass sterilizations for street dogs and cats as well as those animals owned by local families who would otherwise not be able to afford these surgeries.

Ahead of our sterilization days, we seek out stray dogs and cats who require the procedure, and also go from house to house to register animals that require it, and assess how best to facilitate each sterilization. If owners are unable to bring their animals, we help with their transportation. After the procedure we follow up with each animal and provide post-op medical care if needed.

 

All sterilizations are carried out by a professional vet team, and at each sterilization day the Department of Agriculture supply free rabies vaccinations.

Education and Adoption

 Our long-term goal is to change the lives of owned but neglected animals by educating their owners. We show families how they can treat their animals ethically, provide healthy but affordable diets and clean drinking water. We urge them not to place the animals in cages, provide basic medical treatment for when they get sick, and emphasize the importance and benefits of sterilization and vaccination.

Educating owners and sterilizing dogs and cats are preventive measures to reduce the suffering of animals across Bali. However, there are thousands of animals that are not owned or that have been abandoned.  Adoption into a loving forever home is the ultimate goal to end the cycle of suffering.

 

The greatest gift anyone can give is time, and you can give your time to foster or adopt a dog or cat and become a lifelong companion for these animals.

Sterilization

The most effective method to reduce unnecessary suffering of unwanted animals in Bali is to reduce the numbers born, and we do this by sterilization. We organize monthly mass sterilizations in cooperation with Bali Pet Crusaders, for street dogs and cats as well as those animals owned by local families who would otherwise not be able to afford these surgeries.

In the lead up to our sterilization days, we seek out stray dogs and cats who require the procedure, and go from house to house to register animals that require it, and assess how best to facilitate each sterilization. If owners are unable to bring their animals, we help with transportation. After the procedure, we follow up with each animal and provide post-op medical care if needed.
