7 Reasons to Donate to Bali Dog Foundation & Volunteer
THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF #BALIDOGS WHO NEED YOUR LOVE.
Animal shelters and rescue groups take are over-run and under-resourced in Bali.
YOUR DONATION MAY HELP THEM GET ADOPTED.
Petting, grooming and playing with #BALIDOGS can make them healthier and happier—and more adoptable. A study by animal research consultant Dr. Nadine Gourkow and Clive J.C Phillips, a professor of animal welfare at the University of Queensland, found that cats who had four 10-minute sessions of playing, petting and grooming time developed upper respiratory disorders at lower rates and were more content than cats who didn’t interact with people.
YOU GET TO BE A PART OF MAKING HAPPY HOMES
Caring for the animals and helping things run smoothly helps get the animals into their furever homes.
IT’S GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH.
Interaction with animals has been shown to have a ton of health benefits, including reduced stress and anxiety as well as improved immune system functioning and pain management.
IT’LL IMPROVE YOUR MOOD.
Want feel happier? Research has found that while donating money makes people feel happier for a week, donating time extends it to 24 days.
IT’S A GREAT WAY TO MAKE NEW FURRY FRIENDS IF YOU CAN’T ADOPT.
Adopting a pet is a huge commitment in terms of time, effort and your housing situation. So if you’re not ready to make that commitment yet (or ever), you can still spend plenty of time around animals by volunteering according to your own schedule.
We really support the post by Villa Kitty in regards to adopting, fostering and re-homing. Please read it.
