Soi Dog Foundation is the leading street dog and cat welfare organisation in Asia, helping around 100,000 homeless animals a year to live better lives. Soi Dog Foundation sterilises, vaccinates, administers medical treatment, shelters and promotes adoption of street dogs and cats in Thailand, and runs a comprehensive education programme in schools on animal welfare.
Soi Dog Foundation is also leading the fight to end Thailand’s illegal dog meat trade, and is currently setting up operations in Vietnam.
Re-homing dogs and cats is a major part of Soi Dog’s work. The Foundation re-homed around 500 dogs and cats in 2015, both locally and overseas. All animals are sterilised and vaccinated prior to adoption. The adoptions event will focus on puppies, kittens and cats.
Teresa Colman, Adoptions Manager, said, “Right now the shelter is bursting at the seams with puppies and cats. There are so many animals who would make great pets, and we’re really keen to find them safe and loving homes.”
Potential adopters need to complete a short interview on the day with a member of the Adoptions Team, which includes a Thai speaker.
“The interview is to ensure we match the right pet with the right home,” explained Ms Colman.
“The interview includes questions about the adopters’ home and any existing pets. There are also some other things that potential adopters need to consider when adopting a soi dog or cat. For example, our dogs can only go to homes where the garden has a fully enclosed fence, so it would be really helpful if adopters could bring along some photos of their garden on the day.”
Where possible, adopters will be able to take their chosen pet home on the day. However, some adoptions may require a follow up visit to the shelter to collect their pet.
Adopters need to plan for their new pet’s arrival, by bringing a suitable harness and lead (for puppies) or travel basket (for kittens and cats) when they pick up their pet.
