How it works?
Humane population control
Statistics show that one female dog and her offspring can produce up to 67,000 puppies in just six years. One female cat and her offspring can produce 370,000 kittens in seven years.
Strays can and do spread deadly diseases such as rabies. Around 59,000 people in mostly undeveloped countries die every year as a direct result of rabies. Over half of these cases are reported to be children.
What do our donations achieve?
They undertake two sterilisation field trips per month, through which 30 to 40 cats and dogs are sterilised free of charge. In addition they provide first aid and rabies vaccinations. Our aim is to double and then triple these field trips by supporting their fantastic work.
Bali Pet Crusaders
Bali Pet Crusaders help compassionate local families who rescue local dogs or cats but can’t afford to have them neutered shoulder the costs. Their small team of licensed and experienced Indonesian vets provides a mobile sterilisation service to low-income Balinese families five days a week. So far, this amazing team has sterilised 15,000+ dogs and cats, preventing unnecessary suffering for thousands of animals. To curb Bali’s rampant rabies problem, the non-profit also vaccinates animals in the red zones to create a healthier environment for pets and locals alike. A registered charity in Australia and the U.S., Bali Pet Crusaders disclose their funding online, allowing donors to see exactly how far their money goes.
AWARE provides expert veterinary treatment and rehabilitation to sick or injured wild animals, especially where these animals have suffered at the hand of man. This includes treatment of wild animals at risk from disease and the rehabilitation of wild animals threatened by humans. The Trust also performs free sterilisation, vaccination, and basic health care for domesticated animals living in poverty-stricken marginal areas.
Spain - Mallorca
Baldea feline project
Formed in 2005, Baldea is an NGO based in Mallorca. They support the welfare of animals all over the island. Their core focus is in neutering stray cats and other animals. They also provide education to local communities in order to generate improved social responsibility towards pets.
Their core aim is to reduce the stray feline population. They operate a van from which they undertake professional neutering, as well as providing spaying services to animal shelters.
Baldea needs funds to pay for fuel, trap cages, medication, surgical equipment and veterinarians.
They have six mobile spay and neuter clinics and since forming in 2011 they have delivered over 50,000 surgeries. They want to increase their impact by creating more mobile units, and we want to help them.
Emergency relief for endangered wildlife
Part of our quarterly donation goes to international animal protection organisations such as IAR, WWF and HSI. These NGOs spend over 80% of their donations directly on conservation projects and responding to emergencies.
Supporting the green economy
Animals and nature go hand-in-hand. The entire eco-system is fragile and needs our help now more than ever. Our donations work hard to help animals in need but we also have the means to use technology to combat the most important issue of our lifetime, the climate crisis.
Whenever you search for flights on goetica, the CO2 impact is displayed in tonnes for the entire journey and you can then select the cheapest flights. In some instances the difference between the CO2 savings is huge.
And we’re not the only ones who think this way. Project Drawdown is a world-class research organisation that reviews, analyses, and identifies the most viable global climate solutions, and shares these findings with the world. They estimate that by 2050 we could collectively reduce 5 gigatonnes (5 billion tonnes) of CO2 by adopting the latest and most fuel-efficient aircraft, retrofitting existing aircraft, retiring older aircraft early and operating existing aircraft in more fuel-efficient ways. See their analysis here.
We’ll continue to improve our data and technology so that our users always have the most accurate information available. So that you can make the most informed decision every time you travel.
How can I be sure goetica is legit?
We also intend to produce an annual KarmaGraph which will summarise the positive impact our business has had around the world.
