I had just started packing when i received a phone call from my mother. She retold me from neighbor's that saw two of our dogs being taken, killed and eaten by locals. It broke my heart hearing he'd been abused, put in a tiny steal cage without food or water for days and on top of that Dino witnessed the death of his siblings right in front of him before he escaped. I was later told they would come back for him if we left.
There is no law against dog meat in Indonesia!!!
When i arrived with Sebastian on november 2, he was so scared he hide behind the house for hours. So traumatized he almost didn't remember me. Shaking and curled up in a small ball I spent my first day in Bali letting Dino get used to my presens, talking to him and letting him know i wouldn't harm him. Eventually he came out and let me gently touch his head.
After living with Dino for 3 months we have seen great improvement. Showing him noting but love has made him grow. He still gets panic attacks if its to many people around him and struggles to understand who to trust.
But my dog is not food!
We will not let them take him! We want to bring him home to Norway, so he never has to be at risk of being mistreated, killed or even eaten!
But we need financial support to do this. I have saved for a year to afford this trip with my boyfriend and had not anticipated such costs ...
My name is Nathalia. I just turned 20 years old on november 9. I currently live in Norway without steady income. I quite my job before i left and don't have any more funds. So i need your help to make this happened. Im looking for a new job at the moment, but i am afraid i won't be able to save up enough money in time to bring him with us.

His first adventure other then visits to the vet.
THE MONEY WILL GO TO:
- The vet.
- Rabies vaccines and blood test.
- Microchip and documentation.
- Quarantine costs for 3 months at the kennel in Bali.
- Help from professionals, transport to Jakarta and flight.
I know there is a lot of work in order to reach the finish line. But with help, Dino will be the second dog rescued from Bali to Norway!
He has been trough a lot, but everyone deserves a chance. I'm grateful for every penny and hope you can help give Dino a safe future.
If there is any money left it will go straight to the animal welfare organizations in Indonesia.
