Project LUNI

Rehoming & Caring for Street Cats
in Singapore
LUNI Lombok's main goal is to keep the Gili Island cat population happy, healthy and under control.​

LUNI Lombok Indonesia

LUNI Lombok Indonesia was founded in December 2021 with the help of Nina, one of our Singapore founders, when she moved to the island of Gili Trawangan in Lombok, Indonesia. She quickly realized that the local cats desperately needed some helping hands due to the lack of veterinary services and basic animal care knowledge. Together with her local friends, they registered LUNI Lombok Indonesia in December 2021.

The Gili Islands are the perfect islands for cat enthusiasts. With no dogs allowed and no monkeys living there, the cats took over the regime. As we all know, cats love to breed and feral populations can quickly get out of control. Therefore one of the most important tasks is TNR clinics (trap-neuter-return) to control the population and reduce the suffering.

*Estimated Exchange rate is $1 USD to $14000 IDR

LUNI Lombok Pillars

TNR

TNR clinics (trap-neuter-return) are the most effective way to control the several thousand free-living cats on the Gili Islands.

Pussy Patrol

Our team of cat heroes have daily feeding routes which feed over 500 cats each day, while also identifying and helping sick cats.

Medical Care

We provide medical care for common and uncommon injuries and sicknesses affecting local street cats.

Rescue & Rehab

Not just cats, LUNI Lombok is here to help all types of wildlife in need.

Drinking Water

Our next goal is to expand the availability of clean, fresh drinking water for all animals (cows, goats, horses, cats).

LUNI Lombok currently feeds around 500 cats daily on the island of Gili Trawangan. By doing these rounds we not only feed hungry cats, but are able to keep an eye on local cat populations, identify breeding hot spots and sick cats, interact with the community, and provide basic animal care education for locals.

The most common medical issues we see are abscesses and wounds, ringworm and scabies, cat flu, panleukopenia, cats hit by horsecarts, eye infections, kidney failure, worms and fleas, chicken or fish bones stuck in mouth, blood parasites, and blocked cats.

We are currently organising regular TNR clinics on all three Gili islands (Trawangan, Meno and Air) and hope to soon have a local inhouse vet who can continuously work to spay and neuter street cats.

Sometimes LUNI Lombok also gets called to wildlife rescues. From relocating oversized pythons to National Parks in Lombok where they can live happier and risk-free lives to rescuing and responding to reports of illegal wildlife purchases and ownership, we are here to provide help for all animals in need. We often work with BKSDA, a government organization responsible for the protected species and National Parks in the area of NTB. If possible, we rehabilitate the animals and release them into a protected area. If for some reason this is not possible, we work to find other solutions such as large, custom enclosures in the Wildlife Park in Lombok. In these cases, we mostly try to mediate and coordinate but sometimes get more involved.

We have bills up to SGD 30,000 per month and your donations will go a long way to help the cats & kittens in these areas:

  • Fostering, socialising and rehoming of kittens and abandoned cats
  • Daily responsible feeding of stray and community cats
  • Medical care for injured and sick street cats
  • Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)

Please consider a monthly recurring donation so we can continue our rescue efforts.
