Soi Dog Stories
Soi Dog visited Kajonkietsuksa School in Kathu, whilst 33 children and their teachers from Cha-uat Wittayakarn School in Nakhon Sri Thammarat visited the Soi Dog shelter in Mai Khao.
As part of their project to teach their pupils about community role models, good citizenry and becoming involved in community welfare, Kajonkietsuksa School arranged for Soi Dog to do a presentation about the organisation’s activities, and how the children could help the street dogs and cats in Thailand. The highly interactive event was thoroughly enjoyed by 110 grade P3 children who learned more about responsible ownership and care for their pets, as well as helping to care for street dogs and cats.
Janine Cameron, from Kajonkietsuksa School stated, “The children enjoyed interacting with the Soi Dog representatives in English and learning about what Soi Dog does, and came away with great life lessons about what they each can do to help helpless animals, and thereby become role models of responsible citizenship within their own communities. Further, the children also had great fun in their community raising funds and donations of food, blankets and toys which were accepted with thanks by Soi Dog for use at their shelter in Mai Khao.”
It is obvious that the youth of Thailand are dedicated to becoming good citizens and productive members of society. By introducing the children to the various charities and humane societies, and the work that they do within their communities, the youth are taught that they can become everyday heroes by becoming involved and helping those that cannot help themselves. Soi Dog salutes the youth of Thailand in striving to reach this noble goal and will assist where possible to share their knowledge about animal welfare and the benefits of harmonious relationships between the people and animals within their own communities.
