Mandalika Dog Shelter (MDS) is an animal rescue program aimed at animal welfare and focused on abandoned animals. This program was initiated by the Indonesian Tourism Development Company (Persero) / ITDC which is a state-owned company as manager of The Mandalika and launched in October 2018. The implementation of this program is carried out with the Lombok Animal Rescue Institution (LAR) which has more than 10 years.
Mandalika Dog Shelter provides facilities for animal lovers to provide homes for stray dogs in the Kuta Mandalika area. In addition, Mandalika Dog Shelter is trying to educate the public to be more concerned about wild dogs, especially those who are injured.
