LUNI Lombok Indonesia was founded in October 2021.
The local cats desperately needed some helping hands due to the lack of veterinary services and basic animal care knowledge. Since then we have been asked to help with other local wildlife such as cows, goats, horses, birds, and more. Our team helps as many animals as possible on the Gili Islands!
The Gili Islands is an archipelago of three tiny island triplets (Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air) and they are the perfect paradise for cat and wildlife lovers!
Unneutered street cats multiply quickly and contribute to an increasing population of feral and stray cats. Eventually, they suffer from natural calamities, diseases, accidents, and starvation. This is why we are passionate about what we do. We aim to alleviate the suffering of stray cats and control the population to prevent further hardships for our furry friends.
We currently feed around 500-700 cats daily on the island of Gili Trawangan. By doing these rounds we not only feed hungry cats, but are able to keep an eye on local cat populations, identify breeding hot spots and sick cats, interact with the community, and provide primary animal care education for locals. The most common medical issues we see are abscesses and wounds, ringworm and scabies, cat flu, panleukopenia, cats hit by horsecarts, eye infections, kidney failure, worms and fleas, chicken or fish bones stuck in the mouth, and blood parasites.
