Moose, Icon for Animal Welfare in New Caledonia

5 years ago we met our abandoned island dog Moose or Mouss in French. ┬áHe lived all alone on Ilot Casy in New Caledonia. With the help of friends’ and family’s donations we were able to get him regular veterinary care and a campaign was launched to make the same care available to island dogs like him on the outer islands of New Caledonia. Moose’s life is documented in this little movie.

With the help of the Society for the Protection of Animals, the skills of Guy Kane and other vets, the support of the Down Under Rally, 240 animals have since been sterilized reducing the number of strays and underfed animals on Ile des Pins, Ouvea and Lifou.


Upon our return in Australia in June this year, we joined in with the campaign to help dogs on the island of Mare started in Australia by Penny Cairns.  This project is due to start in October this year under the supervision of Marie Martin, president of the Society for the Protection of Animals and so far $5300 has been raised in Australia. We thank all our friends for their efforts. Together with New Caledonian government funding this will be enough to treat 120 animals of the estimated 400 needing care.

If somehow we have helped you by our blogs or by answering your questions and you can afford it, please donate a little to help us reach our target of funds to treat 200 animals. We would need still another $5000 or so.

Thank you!
