The Phuket Soi dog hospital is now open

I am delighted to tell you that, after three years in the planning and construction stages, Thailand’s only hospital dedicated to street dogs is finally open. It is people like you whose donations have helped make made my wife Gill’s dream a reality.

The hospital is the first of its kind in Thailand, with state-of-the-art equipment and technology. It will mean so many more dogs can be rescued and given the medical treatment they desperately need. Animals in need of x-rays or hydrotherapy no longer need to be transported on long journeys to specialist clinics – each of them can now get the treatment they need right here at our shelter.

Belladonna is a very special girl, and now barely recognisable as the sad pup who arrived at our shelter recently. Belladonna’s transformation is sure to warm your heart, as it did mine. There is no denying that she could never have been helped without kind donations by people like you. With the treatment we were able to provide, her whole life has changed, and I am so pleased to be able to share her story with you.

Battling horrendous skin problems, she also had several badly infected wounds on her body and was very anaemic. Fortunately we were able to start medical treatment immediately and get her on the road to recovery. After many weeks of treatment, Belladonna made a remarkable recovery and ready to be adopted by a caring new owner.

Furthermore, I am so pleased to tell you that she has just been adopted and will leave soon for her new home in the US. Of course, she is just one of many cases that have arrived at our shelter in recent weeks. I hope her photos show you the incredible difference a small monthly gift makes for so many like her

Soi Dog Foundation is now in the process of creating a new outreach department, to launch in early 2017. The team will provide instruction in simple veterinary care to the temples and animal carers within the Phuket community. The aim is to teach basic care and preventative medicine, while educating monks, owners, and animal carers on animal management.

The objective is to reduce the number of animals housed in the shelter for minor conditions when the space is needed for serious cases, while also increasing the service provided by Soi Dog to animals on the island of Phuket.
