#ShelterSunday: The Front Lines

IMG-20151203-WA0030

Animal Defenders Indonesia, our #MonthlyMojo shelter for April, works in the streets of Indonesia tirelessly every day to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome the homeless animals of Jakarta. These cats and dogs are not just exposed to the streets, they are still considered food by some in this area.

Animal Defenders aims to change that! The organization is working to end the practice by going into schools and working with children to provide humane education. They also hand out information and educate about pet ownership at events, and advertise to end the practice of using dogs and cats for food. A tremendous amount of their time and resources goes into increasing production of educational materials, banners, and advertising costs for the anti-dog and cat meat campaign, and to helping the animals in great need receive care.
