Cats of Gili 

Cats Of Gili is a project helping the huge cat population at Gili Islands, Indonesia. The project is functioning under Gili Eco Trust, the local environmental organisation.The islands are full of cats and there are lots of health problems among them.  Breeding is out of control and as much as we all love kittens, there are too many. There is cat flu, worms, skin, ear and eye infections, horse carts going too fast and running over cats, etc. The islands have no cars or motorbikes, so horses are used for transportation. The horses need medical care, too. In co-operation with Jakarta Animal Aid Network we organise free animal clinics couple of times a year. During these clinics catsare being neutered/spayed and are treated for any other medical issues. Island horses get medical care, new shoes and so on, and local horse drivers get educated about caring for their horses. 

We are looking for volunteer vets to join us during scheduled clinics and also at other times. There is no vet in the island with the closest being in Lombok and Bali.Free accommodation is provided for the vet volunteers and some free fun dives for those interested in diving.

For more information please visit http://cats-of-gili.blogspot.com and http://www.giliecotrust.com/en/ 

If you are interested in volunteering, please email susanna.catsofgili@gmail.com or info@giliecotrust.com
