About Bali Sanctuary.

February 2nd, 1988 marks the date when APA’s first animal shelter –the Shelter for Homeless Animals, was founded. It was situated underneath the Yong-he Bridge before it was relocated to Danshui in the 90’s. In October of 2000, the Shelter moved to the current location – Bali, and received a new name, the Bali Sanctuary.  


It was then that APA began implementing the systemized practice of micro chipping all of the animals cared for at the Bali Sanctuary. A digital archive documenting each animal’s profile (characteristics, personality, health status, vaccination and medical records, etc) is also maintained. Onsite staff is not only responsible for the upkeep of the shelter and care for the animals staying at the Bali Sanctuary, the staff is also held accountable for how the dogs under their care are faring per their work performance evaluation.


At APA, we care about the animals staying at the Bali Sanctuary and thus we care about the quality of life we provide to them during their stay. And so we will do everything we can to make sure donor’s every dollar donated to us is best utilized. Come visit us at Bali Sanctuary, we’re open all year round!
