Soi Dog Rescue Awarded PetBoogaloo Hero of the Month

Share Article

In Bangkok, stray dogs continue to exist on the streets in frightening numbers and in the most appalling conditions. Thankfully, the Soi Dog Rescue team is there, to reduce the number of stray dogs and to relieve their suffering through realistic community-based spay/neuter projects. PetBoogaloo is proud to honor the entire Soi Dog Rescue team, as PetBoogaloo's Hero of the Month.

At Soi Dog Rescue in Bangkok ( http://www.soidogrescue.org ), the volunteers and Thai staff devote their efforts to helping stray dogs and cats who live on the streets and in the temples. Sherry Conisbee, the co-founder of Soi Dog Rescue, says, "There are an estimated 300,000 dogs and untold hundreds of thousands of cats; too many for our small group to cover. But we do what we can." Soi Dog Rescue focuses on spay/neuter programs in target communities in conjunction with community educational programs.

In just over three years, Soi Dog Rescue has managed to spay over 2,567 cats and dogs. Soi Dog Rescue also runs an adoption service which gives a few lucky strays permanent homes in Thailand and in the USA.

Soi Dog Rescue currently relies on volunteer overseas vets or treatments at private vet clinics in Bangkok, both time-consuming to arrange and expensive. Having a full-time vet on board will cost as little as USD 1,000 per month (around $35,000 Thai baht). This will significantly increase the number of sterilizations they can perform each day and their ability to cope with more vaccinations and treatments for the thousands of sick, injured and abused cats and dogs on the city's streets.
