Feeding & Caring
Every day the stray dogs living in the streets of Laem Mae Phim get fed and looked after. This is the best way to gain the dogs trust and socialize them in order to treat them if they are sick and to neuter them. By keeping the dogs fed and healthy we also keep them calm and avoid that they will be a threat to humans. Only a dog that is starving, scared or hurt will attack a human so this is a good way to let us coexist.
Everyone deserves a home where we can feel safe and loved. In the shelter the dogs are safe from harm, looked after and they never have to starve again. The shelter is their home for now, while waiting for a place to call their own. Click the photo to read more.
Neuter and Spay
The most effective way to reduce the stray dog population is through neutering males and spaying females. We arrange campaigns offering locals to get their animals fixed for a reduced price and we also use the TNR method (Trap Neuter Return) to prevent the population of stray dogs from increasing. This means that we trap the dogs using a stun gun, neuter and vaccinate them and after that return them to their area where they feel safe.
Every dog deserve a loving home. In our shelter we have about 70 dogs longing for a forever place to feel safe, get looked after and be loved. Click the photo to read more.
No one knows exactly how many neglected, abandon and wild dogs there are in Thailand. But there are millions. Through TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return), vaccinations and adoption we will do everything we can to reduce the number of suffering dogs in the Leam Mae Phim, Rayong, area. Our main goal is by wide membership and idealistic work with volunteers creates an economic and stable foundation. Every contribution will make a difference and we will present it on the webpage, the amount and name (or reference number if you would like to be anonymous). We will likewise present all the expenses on the page. This is going to be a foundation where all the means provided for the dogs are presented without any disappearance on the way. First of all we want to reduce the dogs suffering, but also to start a campaign for sterilization to reduce the abundance of stray dogs. Today we can find new born puppies in almost every corner. 50% of the puppies dies due to suffering, lacking nourishment, water and shelter. Simultaneously as we sterilize we will perform vaccinations against rabies and scab. The dogs will also be provided with a collar. This association should be suitable for all people, even those who don’t like stray dogs, because a large number of stray dogs will be reduced. We reckon that in a three-year period the number of stray dogs will have decreased to at 25% of the present tribe.
Castration and Sterilization
By neutering the dogs, we slowly reduce the stray dog population in Mae Phim. We also help out if there are Thai families that want their dogs or cats neutered.
We make sure that as many dogs as we can afford to help get the treatment they need. Our veterinary comes to Mae Phim when we call him and he treats the dogs with skin diseases, vaccinate against rabies and scabies, take care of wounds etc.
A starving dog can be an aggressive dog. By feeding the dogs every day we keep them calm. One might think that it will attract more dogs to the area. Yes, it might. But by feeding them they won’t be hungry and therefore they won’t be a threat to humans. The same way we are earning their trust and can catch them for neutering and treatment.
Every dog, as every human, deserves a loving home. Our goal is to find a home for the dogs we care for, in Thailand or abroad. If you can’t adopt, please sponsor monthly.
