Welcome to Paws for Change
Paws For Change is a registered Australian charity and 100% of our profits support local and global dog rescue projects.
We work with select rescue groups and shelters around the world to help sick/injured, mistreated, abandoned or homeless dogs on a project by project basis, raising funds and distributing them where they are needed most.
As well as fostering and working through adoptions, we also have our own shelter in Bali to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home dogs in need.
We are working with local people in various areas to educate and change the mindset of how to care for street dogs and other animals.
We work with local vets to increase the number of dogs being sterilised, with our two pronged education and sterilisation programs, working with local customs and beliefs to encourage more involvement and participation.
With your help we can make a real difference in the lives of street dogs and survivors from the atrocities of the global dog meat industry.

We've opened our very first safe house for senior dogs!
We're thrilled to announce that Paws For Change has opened its first offical shelter - and Bali's first ever safe house specifically for senior dogs.
Senior dogs can sometimes come with age related health issues that may require a special diet or physio regime, but they also come with an abundance of gratitude and love that someone is allowing them to live out their twilight years in comfort and peace. This is never more true than when you're talking about a street dog who has lived a hard life on the streets and now has a chance to know love and comfort for the first time. We've rescued some of our first residents from life on the streets and their rehabilitation and care can begin.
Our Senior Safe House offers a peaceful place for these old souls to enjoy safety and love while they rehabilitate. Our full rescue and rehabilitation program offers a full range of diet, physio and medical options to address any age related issues; soft beds at night; a roof over their head; a shaded yard to explore; and dedicated staff to offer 24/7 company and love. These old souls are available for local adoption only due to the stress international travel would have on them.
Your sup-pawt of Paws For Change in our first year of operation has allowed us to bring this safe house to life - so from our newest senior rescues and ourselves.....THANK YOU!
