COMING SOON: Borneo Animal Welfare Centre
Following our extensive work in Borneo so far, our team are now embarking on our most ambitious project to date.
IAPWA was invited to help tackle the increasing stray populations in the city of Sandakan, which is a hotspot for conservation and ecotourism.
The city is home to the Orangutan Sanctuary, the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre, and the Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary, which are all located within an hour’s drive of the city centre. IAPWA’s Borneo Animal Welfare Centre will be a part of Sandakan’s eco-focused heritage.
The Borneo Animal Welfare Centre will be spread over 7-10 acres of land, with the Veterinary Clinic (hosting our veterinary interventions) and the Education & Adoption Centre (hosting our RPO programme) near the main road at the entrance. The area behind the buildings is a beautiful, landscaped dog park which features walking trails, play-area enclosures, agility courses, and a picnic area for families. The entire facility is designed as a place where people can come and enjoy the companionship of their pet dogs, to promote the inclusion of pets as members of the family.
Our vision for the upcoming centre can be seen in the architectural drawings on this page, with a breakdown of the centre services and facilities below.
Of course, to be able to build this centre, we need your support. If you love animals and want to help us change the lives of thousands of dogs and cats within Sandakan, Borneo, then please consider contributing to the first phase of our build process by making a kind contribution today via our donation form.
If you are interested in making a more significant contribution to our new centre, we’d be delighted to discuss this with you in more detail. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We are so excited about the difference this project will make. Thank you for supporting our work – we couldn’t do any of it without you.
