Married At First Sight’s Bronson Norrish is raising awareness on how homeless dogs are treated in Bali, Indonesia.
The 35-year-old shared a confronting photo to Instagram last week, of a dog being desexed by a local vet in the backyard of a villa.
After fans questioned how ‘sterile’ the surroundings were, Bronson told 9Honey Celebrity on Friday that ‘a lot of people are sheltered’ as to what happens overseas.

‘Doesn’t look very sterile,’ one follower wrote, while another shared: ‘Hope the puppies don’t get an infection’.
Speaking to 9Honey Celebrity on Friday, Bronson explained that the point of the photo was to raise awareness of what changes still need to be made.
He explained: ‘I first came to Bali when I was six and was mortified at the way these animals were treated.’
‘Posting the photo was aimed at raising awareness to the battle we are fighting in Bali. Unfortunately a lot of people are sheltered to what happens around the world and even in their own backyard.’
While the photo may not represent the most ideal conditions for a dog to be desexed, Bronson was grateful to the vet for having made a difference.
