First Day as Volunteer

+ Lucky Moment

10.30am, Sunday, April 4th 2010 - was my first day as Volunteer in Animal Shelter (dogs and cats), Pejaten Shelter. Its located at South Jakarta, Pejaten Barat No.45W. The owner of the shelter is Doctor Susan. I really amazed when I step my feet in to this shelter, I saw so many dogs and cats that treated by dr. Susan there. From the very good health dogs and cats to the the most poor condition of them. One word that I kept saying to what dr. Susan have done is 'WOW'. I can't imagine it, its non profit shelter and she just doing all those with graceful and full of love.

I learned so much about dogs and cats 'problem' from her. She said, its really important to keep fight in order Indonesian goverment make a law about animal/pets. Its really sucked to know that overpopulation about dogs and cats are keep continuing till now, but Goverment do nothing for this. They not trying to control the population. She said 'you know ? in america when people want to keep a dog or cat, they have to pay a tax for it, and the most need to underline that they have a law about it. When goverment find somethings wrong with the pet, they will interrogate the Master.' and dr. Susan continued by saying '..its like big stress to think about the fact out country have no law for pets, even a small country like Singapore, they have it'.

Not only discuss about dogs and cats, but I also cleaned the cage, gave them a drink, etc. All things I have done that day was really-really meanful to me. It made me more understand about dogs and cats, how to treat them right and really help me before I'll get my own dog next month (from my bestfriend, Destya) - I hope with what I learned from the Shelter I'll treat my dog with proper treatment.

Okay, thats it my story for now. I'll tell you more on my next visit to th shelter. Oh yea, almost forget, I bring gifts from my first trip as volunteer. I took some pictures of the cats and dogs, here they are :

One more lucky moment (luckiest maybe..) thing..when I were on my way home (by bus - transjakarta bus) I saw a very-very beautiful sky with its sunset. The sky color was a deep yellow - orange with a little black. It was really-really the best sunset I've ever seen in Jakarta, remember Jakarta, a big poluted city in Indonesia. So I made decicion to stop even I'm still a long way from my home. Thanks God, I made the right decicion. Its like a very rare for us jakarta folks to get a good sunset view, but this afternoon I got this beautiful sunset, made me as if I were the luckiest people to have opportunity to captured the view.

Hi, I just happened to find my way to your blog... and found myself delightfully surprised by two things:

First, that you volunteered at an animal shelter. To me, that's wow... I didn't even know an animal shelter existed in Jakarta. I wish that it's existence was made more publicly known. And that you volunteered at one, well... that's even more wow...

Second, I admire the way that you stopped to appreciate the sunset. I personally LOVE sunrises and sunsets and am always in awe of it's beauty. But to find a fellow Jakartan, who finds time to appreciate it, well... that's nice too... most of us Jakartans are to busy to even notice. And probably don't even get a chance to be outside when it happens... hehehehe...

Looking forward to more visits in the future :D

@januari thanks for the compliment and hey for the sunset-moment the only tip is 'just bring your camera wherever n whenever you go'.

@martha you know what ? I do really happy because of your words. Yes, we are all animal shelter still on the way to promote about 'bring the law for pet' just like the one in U.S or Europe. They are all have law about pet, there, we cant have a pet without permission from goverment and thats what exactly what we want from this country. Oh yea, please feel free to contact me if you have questions about animal shelter or want to adopt one-or-two animal from here. Lat but not least, nice to know you my new fella
