Respect to a life, no matter how small;
Compassion is the key to start doing good
Rescue is one of AFJ very first program; in fact, AFJ co-founders were met
during the animal rescue activities of mount Merapi eruption. By the time goes on,
it is our commitment to continue this rescue acticities to help the voiceless animals
in danger and animals in need our help.
Well, rescue is actually the beginning of a long journey for the saved one, and we want to make sure that our supporters and also the people contacting and requesting help from Animal Friends Jogja understand about our rescue policy and priorities. Since the numbers of unwanted cats and dogs are increasing everyday, we need you to understand that AFJ is not a shelter and we need you to be involved in the rescue process.
The reasons and the causes of the problems are many, and sometimes doesn't make any sense for us. One of them, for example; is because the owners think that they didn't make a "good pet" anymore and they want to give it away. Many cats and dogs were rescued because they were dumped, stray, abandoned, have disabilities, hit by vehicles, been shot with a gun, and the rest of the list can go on and on and on ... These animals are victims of our crime, victims of our thought, and victims of human ego. Since animal welfare awareness in Indonesia is still below average, many people considered animals as comodities, animals as food, animals as something that human should be "overpowered" and ruled. We are here because we fight for the voiceless. Animals don't speak English, Chinese, Russian or Indonesian, but we believe that animals have feeling and they speak in one universal language, love.
