Thank You for 10 years of Support
Amidst the splendour of Bangkok's temples and on its busy streets, thousands of stray cats and dogs endure a miserable existence. Their plight is largely ignored.
You can help by supporting Animal Welfare Organisations in Thailand. Click through to our list.
The stream of heartfelt notes of encouragement and appreciation that we have received over the past few weeks has truly been heartwarming and we thank you for your love and support.
We have helped thousands of animals over the past 10 years and none of that would have been possible without your incredible support. THANK YOU very much!
Today an estimated 300,000 stray dogs roam the streets of Bangkok, and cats in greater numbers hide from view. For countless years the dogs have been killed or relocated in response to residents’ complaints or in a misguided attempt to reduce numbers or control rabies. As time and experience prove, these efforts have failed to achieve long-term results.
The rescued soi cats and dogs in our adoption programme have the power to spread love and reach beyond the borders of Thailand, to touch us wherever we may happen to live, and affect our lives in surprising ways. These cats and dogs are responsible for bringing strangers together. They move us with their forgiveness, affection, and indomitable spirit.
There is no effective legislation in Thailand to protect animals, nor is animal welfare education part of the established curriculum in schools. Culturally, animals have been viewed for generations as either useful (as food or labour), dangerous or superfluous. Only within the last two decades has pet ownership become popular in Thailand and as yet most people have no concept of what is required to care for pets properly.
