Farm Animal Sanctuary will provide a good life for rescued pigs, dogs, chickens, geese, ducks and turtles. About one year ago a vegan couple, Loo Shih and his wife Sing Hui, bought 5 hectares of land in Dumai Riau, Indonesia in order to build a haven for farm animals when they learned that farmed animals suffer the most brutal treatment of any animals on earth. Their place is the only farm animal sanctuary in Indonesia.
The couple care for 43 pigs, 42 dogs, numerous chickens, ducks and geese and 12 turtles with NO electricity. They have no staff and work sunup to sundown caring for the animals themselves. They cook rice for 4 hours per day with a generator in order to provide food for the pigs and dogs. They have no funds for fencing so cannot expand the area to provide a bigger space for the pigs. It's very rainy there and so the area is very muddy. The animals have little dry spots to take refuge in.
The project will solve the problem by getting electricity to the sanctuary, by funding better quality food for the animals, by providing money to build fencing around the property, by allowing the couple to hire some staff to help out. Funding will also help with veterinary costs for regular care and sterilizations. Currently all male pigs and dogs are sterilized so they will not reproduce. The sanctuary is at maximum capacity at the moment.
The project can become sustainable when they have funds to build rooms for eco-tourists and volunteers and to build a small education center to teach people about animal welfare.
