A very nice place for stray dogs to be taken care of. Hard working people that work here and have passion for the dogs! We got introduced to many of the dogs and got to pet them and stat with them and help feeding them.

I'm here for a month volunteering, and the shelter is a fantastic place to visit if you love dogs, 99.9% of the dogs are friendly, some scared, dogs have plenty of free time out of their kennels, fed twice a day, they know their kennels, they know they're safe, with plenty of love, and spotlessly clean, they get plenty of visitors bringing donations of food, towels, bedding for the dogs, you can interact with the dogs, the staff are very friendly and helpful and encourage you to interact with the dogs, all dogs have, and know their name.

I've visited some horrendous public and private shelters around the world, this is 5 star, in a nutshell, although I try and not put my own animals in a shelter, I certainly would here if they were boarding kennels. Plan a few hours of your holiday to come and visit, nothing to hide, it's fully transparent to how donations are spent, not just on the dogs inside, without any government help, they treat dogs in the outlying villages to, I've had that experience also, like any charity, it's a uphill struggle with funds, donate when you can, I know how money is being spent.
I'll be back in the future, hopefully with my nephew, a 10 year old who will be the next generation animal advocate.

I visited the shelter while I was staying in the area on vacation. This was definitely a huge highlight of my and life. Som who is the lady in charge and founder of this foundation is an amazing inspirational person. I spent a great afternoon meeting and walking some of the dogs which was so very rewarding. Som had time to talk with me and explain how the foundation started and had grown. Som is doing a remarkable thing dedicating her life to caring for the stray dogs of Pattaya giving them a home and saving countless dogs lives. I look forward to returning to the shelter again in the future to help in anyway possible.

This place is amazing! We've been welcomed by Khun Som and her staff, plus more than 150 dogs barking happily! The sound was so loud and full of energy! When they opened the cage so many dogs came to smell us and looking for cuddles and human contact. So lovely! No fight happened while we where there, also because the staff know well the character of each of of their dog and keep separate the one that don't get along well.
The place is big and super clean. What impressed me the most was that you can't smell bad hodour there and that the dogs were all so clean!
If you are in the area give a visit and do not forget one big bag of food! It's always needed!

Had the pleasure of visiting this rescue centre in Thailand for dogs with a couple of friends.

The work they do there is incredible and with that amount of dogs, there really are sole dedicated people working there. I couldn’t believe the amount of food they get through everyday.

I was a bit nervous at first with lots of dogs bounding over to me but not one was aggressive. All the dogs were so friendly and just wanted to know who I was.

Can’t wait to visit again and hopefully one day I’ll be in a position to adopt one of them, but I had so many favourites that I’d probably take about 10 of them home.

The shelter is very organized and everyone in the shelter is very friendly. The dogs are sweet and they are not dangerous. I love all the dogs there and I would surely come back. ❤️ Lottie and Connor are very kind and the owners of the shelter as well. They are worth meeting and visiting. Please give them a visit and adopt, foster, donate. ❤️
