We still got 51 days left …


Every animal has a chance – please help us to build The Green Shelter to provide a loving and safe home for stray dogs and cats as long as they live or until they find permanent loving home.

Animal Defenders Indonesia is a social organization focusing on rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing stray dogs and cats. This organization has been established 3 years ago by Doni Herdaru Tona as a respond to many animal abuse cases that happen every day in Indonesia. Doni used to help stray dogs and cats since he was still a child. Finally, in year 2010 he realized that to achieve bigger goal and help more animals there is a need of better coordination and communication between animal lovers in Indonesia, thus Animal Defenders Indonesia has been established.

Since the beginning Animal Defenders Indonesia has helped hundreds of dogs and cats, mostly in the capital of Indonesia, Jakarta, where Doni lives. Now the organization consists of 14 permanent members and many volunteers. With the help of social networks and internet the organization is growing fast and many people are willing to volunteer and help during rescue, our network is expanding.

All animals rescued by Animal Defenders Indonesia are treated by dedicated vets and rehabilitated in Doni’s house in West Jakarta, before they find permanent loving home. Today there are more than 50 dogs and cats living with Doni. Animal Defenders is a non-profit organization funded completely by its members, volunteers and animal lovers in Indonesia. All expenses such as vet and food are covered by Doni and his friends.

With more and more cases every day Animal Defenders is in desperate need of bigger shelter, where those poor abused animals can find care and love. We have already found the right place, but only with your donation our biggest dream will come true. Please donate today! Please help us to help animals!

We need to raise $5,500 to cover the expenses of renting the land, renovation of the main building, which will serve as main office and clinic, building doggy, kitty and puppy pens, as well as special equipment like incubators for small kittens.

We expect that in our new Green Shelter about 150-200 abused or abandoned animals will find safe home. Animal Defenders Indonesia is willing not only to help stray dogs and cats, but also improve living standards of the community around our shelter. During the construction process we will work together with local workers and after the construction is finished we want to provide animal welfare education for school children and conduct rescue trainings. We believe that with these activities we can build better future for everyone!

Every new animal in the shelter will receive appropriate vaccinations before joining other dogs and cats. All animals will be spayed or neutered before being adopted as we promote responsible pet ownership.

The Green Shelter will only adopt pets to responsible, loving, permanent homes. All potential adopting families will be required to fill out a questionnaire and be interviewed by one of our members. We will also visit homes of potential adopters to confirm a safe living environment.

We believe that together we can spread our love around the world. Let’s fight for better animal welfare!

If you can’t donate today, but want to help us anyway, you can get the word out and make some noise about our campaign. Please use the Indiegogo share tool and ask your family and friends to make a donation. Thank you

If you visit Jakarta one day, you are also more than welcome to visit our Green Shelter.
