Soi Dog Foundation’s mission statement is to improve the welfare of dogs and cats in Asia, resulting in better lives for both the animal and human communities, to create a society without homeless animals, and to ultimately end animal cruelty.

The adoptions team at Soi Dog Foundation has put out an appeal to animal lovers in Thailand to consider adopting a rescued dog or cat from their shelter when looking at acquiring a lifelong pet companion for their family. By adopting instead of buying a pet, potential pet owners make a life-changing difference to an animal in real need. Soi Dog has a wide range of perfect pets consisting of cute puppies, kittens or mature animals of various types and sizes.
Teresa Colman, Adoptions Manager, said, “Rehoming dogs and cats is a major part of our work, and the success of our adoptions programme has a huge impact on our ability to provide treatment and care to more animals in need. We work really hard to find each adopter the right pet and we will help you find the right pet for you. We have so many animals that would make wonderful pets, and we are really keen to find them safe and loving homes with Thai families and the expat community.
“In the event that expats need to return to their home country, Soi Dog can provide guidance about how to take their adopted dog or cat with them. Whilst some Thai dogs and cats may take time to adjust to their new owners and environment, they make extremely loyal and loving pets, particularly animals saved from tough lives on the streets that seem to understand they’ve been given a second chance.”
Potential adopters will need to complete a short interview with the adoptions team. Teresa said, “We interview adopters to get to know them better and to make sure we’re matching the right pet for the right reasons with the people in the right home.
“It is great if potential adopters can visit the shelter, and as we appreciate that this can be a challenge during the week, we now offer an appointment service on Saturday mornings between 9am and midday.”
Interested potential adopters can call Charoenkhwan Pongpradith – Thai Adoptions Co-ordinator at 098 868 0058 or email firstname.lastname@example.org during the week to schedule an appointment.
