I DONATE TO GREAT ORGANIZATIONS. THIS ONE SEEMS AWESOME!
Soi Dog has impressed me from the beginning and felt compelled to become a monthly donor. I give with confidence knowing how dedicated they are to the cause of stray cats and dogs. There are no high payed directors or executives at Soi Dog all goes to help animals!
Soi Dog has played for the first time ever in history something that no other org have done before. The Dog Meat Trade industry is under the eyes of the entire world thanks to Soi Dog and leaders from governments, global organizations and supporters all around the world now are aware of whats going on.
At Soi Dog there are no egos. Everything goes to the dogs and they operate at one of the lower % operating costs in the world.
A highly and trusted organization to support.
The highest level of rescue organization focused on help neglected and abused cats and dogs can be, Need more proof? Just Google Soi Dog Foundation and see it by yourself.
I have worked with many animal welfare groups over the years. Soi Dog Foundation is at the very top of my list. They are dedicated, transparent and get things done!! Soi Dog ROCKS!!!
Soi Dog represents to me the perfect example of a charity that hasn't got bigger in the wallet but in the heart. So many dedicated volunteers one barely sees anymore in most charities. A perfect case of how a charity can change the world - well done Soi Dog!
Love Soi for helping THESE POOR DEFENSELESS ANIMALS FROM THE ATROCITYS THEY would have sufferd if Soi didn't step in . Please Donate and help this Great Cause . God Bless you all
Soi dog should be the global example and the one to follow of what an animal rescue organization should be. Starting from their no-kill shelter policy, the fact that all management and senior level officers are all NON paid people and the unprecedented low operation cost shows an honest, humane and professional way to face the very complex challenges they face every day.
I've donated, I donate, I've volunteered, I volunteer and I will continue supporting Soi Dog in any and all the possible way.
My respect to Soi Dog.
I visited this charity recently as I was curious to see where my money was going. I am so glad I took the time out of my vacation to do this as everything I saw and learnt far exceeded my expectations, so much so that I will be doubling my monthly donations.
The animals are incredibly well cared for and happy. The volunteers work tirelessly, often in searing heat or tropical downpours. The sheer numbers of animals spayed/neutered and medically treated each month is staggering (my tour guide said they average about 1,200 animals EVERY MONTH). They have a high level of adoptions, including overseas, which was also so good to hear.
What's more, every local person I met on the island - whether Thai or Western - had nothing but good things to say about this amazing charity. Many people that care for dogs at temples or on beaches etc are provided with food by Soi Dog. There is nothing this charity hasn't thought of when it comes to doing the best for Phuket's animals.
I wish more people would take the time out to visit and see for themselves. They too would be donating.
As a donor, I came to this site seeking more information on Soi Dog's mission and activities. Please take the time to read the comments from Soi Dog in response to the two- and three-star reviews below; they thoroughly and sensibly address the concerns expressed. If you have time, please also read the many reviews from volunteers who have experienced the excellent and inspirational work of this charity. I am pleased to continue donating to Soi Dog, and only wish I could do more for them.
Review from Guidestar
Hello, Soi Dog, you are NOT answering the question directly. The question is: ARE YOU PUTTING DOGS BACK ON THE STREET? Just answer the question.
Hi Soi Dog Question, As stated earlier Soi Dog runs a large scale CSVR program (Capture, Sterilize, Vaccinate & Release) as well as a large shelter in Phuket, which at any one time is home to over 400 dogs. Approximately 1800 dogs are sterilized and vaccinated each month. The majority of these dogs are returned to their local area. Dogs which cannot be returned due to physical condition (illness etc.), age or potential for abuse are taken to our shelter in Phuket. It is neither possible nor desirable to remove tens of thousands of dogs. Thailand is home to well over one million stray dogs with Phuket alone having over 60,000. Sterilization is the only effective and humane way of addressing the core cause of street animal suffering this being over population. (Do please visit the following page to gain a better understanding of our CSVR program: http://www.soidog.org/en/spay-neuter-program/ ) Rounding dogs up and placing them in shelters or pounds has no effect on population reduction whatsoever, as the fertile remainder will always rapidly breed to fill the void. Concern had been expressed in an earlier comment on this page that these dogs run the risk of becoming victims of the dog meat trade. As responded to earlier this is not the case. Soi Dog’s CSVR program operates in the south of the country where the trade does not exist. (The trade is in the north and northeast of the country) Dogs which are rescued from the dog meat trade in the north are not released. They are taken to a large purpose built shelter in Buriram Thailand financed by Soi Dog. At present in excess of 1300 dogs are at the Buriram shelter.
