In early June this year my partner and I intend to travel to Thailand and spend a day volunteering at the Soi Dog Foundation. It is our hope that we can take with us vital medication, surgical supplies, toys and other care items to benefit the hundreds of dogs requiring these necessities.

Soi Dog Foundation is a large animal refuge facility housing over 400 dogs and dozens of cats which haven been rescued either from the streets of Thailand or from the brutal Asian meat trade.

Every year tens of thousands of dogs (both street dogs and stolen pets) are inhumanely transported from Thailand to neighbouring countries where they are butchered by cruel and barbaric methods. The conditions under which the dogs are transported and slaughtered are inhumane and many die from suffocation long before they reach neighbouring countries. In reality these are the lucky ones. Those that are still alive are not humanely killed. Many are tortured, often for hours, before being skinned alive. The reason for this is that people believe that the pain inflicted leads to the tenderising of the meat.

On top of rescuing dogs destined for this barbaric ending and fighting to put a stop to the industry, Soi Dog rescue the sick and injured street dogs and cats of Thailand. These dogs and cats are taken to the facility for vital veterinary attention, nursed back to health, and then socialised (with the help of volunteers) to help make them suitable for future adoption.

Soi Dog is a no kill shelter - meaning the only animals that are euthanised are those that there is no chance of recovery or of a quality of life free from suffering.

With literally hundreds of thousands of dogs on the streets of Thailand, de-sexing (Sterilization) has been proven to be the most effective way to help the animals. Soi Dog has reached a milestone of over 107,259 dogs and cats sterilized.

Soi Dog Foundation is not a registered charity in New Zealand (it is however, in 6 other countries including Australia). I wish to disclose that the funds are going to a bank account in my name (but in a separate account to personal funds and which has been created entirely for this purpose) which will be accessed closer to time to buy the equipment we intend to take over with us on our trip. If we can raise enough, once we have bought supplies, the remaining funds will be used as a cash donation to the facility to use in any manner they wish.
