About
Soi Dog Foundation is S.E. Asia’s largest rescue organisation for vulnerable stray dogs and cats. For 20 years, supported by generous donations and global volunteers, SDF has worked tirelessly to reduce animal suffering through CNVR (Catch; Neuter; Vaccinate; Return) programmes. For animals unable to be returned safely to the streets, SDF provides sanctuary, as well as local and international adoption services. SDF is a haven where sick and vulnerable dogs and cats receive world-class medical care, and love. SDF is working in several countries to help end the inhumane and barbaric dog meat trade. Guided tours available Monday-Friday at 10:00am and 1:30pm. Following the 40-minute tour, visitors are encouraged to socialise with our lovely cats and dogs. Impromtu tours are not available between 11:30am and 1:00pm, although between these times, visitors are invited to socialise in the cattery or spend time in the visitor centre. Volunteers are welcome Monday to Friday from 9am.

    Will visit the lovely cute little ones everytime I visit Phuket
    Absolutely a must go place to support the place, the people and most importantly the beautiful and lovely cute little ones! Whether you are a dog or cat lover or not, go and have a visit and if you have time you can even volunteer for a day or more. Donation is up to you and no one will ever force you to donate anything.
    Dear Veteranito, Thank you for visiting us at Soi Dog and the lovely review. Our dogs and cats like to give visitors a warm welcome, and thank you for your support. We really appreciate you encouraging people to volunteer with us. We have so many dogs here who need walking and socialising, and cats who need socialising and cuddling. We look forward to welcoming you back to Soi Dog one day! Best wishes.

    Amazing
    This place is incredible. The staff are lovely. You can tell all the dogs are loved and looked after. They’re all so happy. They accomodate the dogs so well depending on their needs. They have them in size ranges, age, and needs. The sanctuary is beautiful and big. And we got to play with some of the dogs. We bought some items to help support them since they offer free tours. Next time I’m in Thailand I will volunteer here. Thankyou Ghan for the tour!
    Dear Toniyaj, Thank you for visiting us at Soi Dog and the wonderful feedback. We are so pleased to hear you saw for yourself that the wellbeing of the dogs and cats is the priority for all of us here. Gan, the dogs and the cats love to give our visitors a very warm welcome! We look forward to welcoming you back as a volunteer one day. Best wishes.

    Just wonderful, staggering how the charity has grown and diversified Will be a lifelong supporter, and come back to choose a dog when I can! Please keep up with volunteering, funds, adoptions. Your donations are in the best possible place! Please adopt and don't shop
    Dear Tessas979, Thank you for visiting Soi Dog and the excellent review. We are so thankful to kind people like you, enabling us to help more and more dogs and cats in need. We really appreciate you encouraging others to support Soi Dog, and to consider adopting rather than buying from breeders. There are so many beautiful souls here waiting for loving homes and families. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future! Best wishes.

    A sanctuary full of love and care - volunteers here become part of the Soi Dog family
    I spent a week volunteering with Soi Dog and it was the best ending to my trip. The staff is amazing and so thoughtful, and you can tell that you've entered a place where love and care is in abundance. I had an amazing time meeting dogs of all ages, sizes, breed and needs and taking them out on walks and (those who loved it) to the sanctuary's pool. It's beautiful watching dogs and cats who were treated so badly before being saved to thriving in this sanctuary and loving human contact. I am so thankful for all the work Soi Dog is doing for Asia's dogs and cats - they work hard despite the hardships they face in helping these animals have a better chance in life. I will continue supporting them through donations and sponsoring, and will hopefully be back to volunteering again soon! I encourage everyone who has time to spare while visiting/living in Phuket to visit Soi Dog and meet the lovely souls who live here. Sidenote - It's hard not to have any favourites while volunteering here but Butterboy stole my heart. I hope he finds his forever home soon x
    Dear Rachel, Thank you for volunteering with us, and such wonderful feedback. We are so thankful for the energy and love you gave to Soi Dog, benefiting the dogs and cats here so much! It is hard not to fall in love with our blind one year old Butterboy. He is full of love and energy, and enjoys his daily walks and cuddles with kind volunteers like you. As much as we all love him here, we also hope he finds the comfortable loving home he deserves very soon. We are so grateful for the many ways you support Soi Dog, enabling us to continue to help so many dogs and cats in need. Thank you also for encouraging others to visit and volunteer. We are always in need of volunteers to enrich the lives of the dogs and cats living here. We hope to welcome you back to Soi Dog again very soon! Best wishes.

    A must visit for Dog lovers
    I first visited Soi Dog in 2017 for 1 week and since then every year I have been back, now with my partner. I normally volunteer for a week or two sometimes full day or half days. It’s just a fantastic Charity & Shelter. The staff & fellow volunteers are so friendly and the dogs are just amazing. Would recommend you visit and strong recommend you volunteer for a few days as you’ll never regret it and like me will probably keep coming back.
    Dear Kevin, Thank you for all the time and energy you have given to Soi Dog over the years. We really could not continue to help so many dogs and cats in need without kind people like you! As we have so many dogs and cats living at Soi Dog now, we need more volunteers than ever, to help walk, socialise and play with the dogs, and cuddle and play with the cats. This helps them learn to trust humans, increases their chance of adoption, and also enriches their lives while living at the shelter. We appreciate you leaving a review encouraging others to volunteer with us, and become part of the global Soi Dog community. Thank you so much from all of us, dogs, cats and humans at Soi Dog. Best wishes.

    Must do if in Thailand & for an amazing cause
    We spent 2 days volunteering here whilst in Phuket - with having a rescue dog myself and being big animal people it was on the top of our ‘to do’s’ whilst here. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, you could really tell they were excited to have volunteers helping out! The whole experience was just so good, obviously upsetting at some parts seeing what a lot of the dogs & cats have been through before Soi Dog taking them in, but when you see all the work, care and love that goes into each animal and how far so many of them have come it just shows how much of an amazing job they’re all doing. If you’re visiting Phuket please add this to your time here, it’s helping out an amazing organisation but also helping out the animals they have, so many get so excited when you take them out their walk & just want to play and be loved and this also helps many of them with their journey to getting a forever home! Thank you to everyone at Soi Dog for having us we will definitely be back! Special shout out to Chrissie & her team for the work they do in the volunteering space - everything was so coordinated & you all made us feel at home!
    Dear kamio396, Thank you for volunteering with us, and for taking the time to leave the wonderful review! As you saw for yourself, the dogs and cats here benefit so much from time with kind people like you. They are always so happy to see friendly faces, and it really is the highlight of their day. Thank you for encouraging others to visit and volunteer, with so many dogs and cats currently in the care of Soi Dog Foundation, we are in need of even more volunteers. And all of our volunteers enjoy the walking, playing and socialising just as much as the dogs and cats. We really could not continue to help so many animals in need without kind people like you, and hope to welcome you back one day. Best wishes.

    Highly Recommended for all Animal Lovers
    What an amazing job Soi Dog do! We spent a very enjoyable (albeit emotional) few hours at Soi Dog - 1600 dogs and 1400 cats in care the day we visited, and I wish I could have adopted some of them but due to Australia's quarantine laws that just wasn't possible. It seems like one dog in every 4 was missing a limb but they are in a safe place now just waiting for their forever homes. Next time we go I will do a few days volunteering. Absolutely no hard sell for donations but it was too hard to leave without shrinking the bank balance a bit!
    Dear paulinesA9430AE, Thank you for visiting Soi Dog and taking the time to leave a review. Many people find it emotional hearing about what so many of the rescue dogs and cats have experienced before coming to Soi Dog, but like you saw for yourself, they are all very well cared for here. With 1,400 dogs and 400 cats currently living at the shelter, they are always grateful for kind people like you visiting and spending time with them. We look forward to welcoming you back, hopefully as volunteers one day! Best wishes.

    Incredible experience, highly recommend Soi Dog Foundation to visit and support - the most wonderful rescue organisation
    What a fantastic organisation Soi Dog Foundation is! We were so impressed with the set up and amazing rescue work they do making the world a better place for abused, neglected, sick, stray street animals. We volunteer at rescue organisations in Australia and it their set up was way better and completely exceeded our expectations. Such an incredible experience, extremely well organised and clean. Had the opportunity to see and spend time with the most beautiful dogs and cats and did a tour of their fantastic facilities. A must see visit for any animal lovers who are keen to volunteer, donate or just find out more about the wonderful work Soi Dog do. Highly recommend!
    Dear HolAsh, Thank you for visiting us at Soi Dog, and the excellent review! The welfare of the dogs and cats is the priority for all of us at Soi Dog, and we are pleased you saw this for yourself. We really appreciate you encouraging others to visit, volunteer and support Soi Dog, which will enable us to help more dogs and cat in need. Best wishes.

    Amazing organisation! Brilliant experience!
    I do volunteer work in Australia with abused dogs, and I can honestly say Soi Dog Foundation puts all others to shame. The facility is brilliant, volunteers are amazing, the dogs and cats look very well looked after and the tour is a really interesting experience! This is truely a very special place that does amazing work! You need to visit Soi Dog if you are in Phuket, you will not be disappointed.

    Soi Dog, an amazing organization with incredible, lasting impact
    Their amazing dedication and depth of their commitment is incredible as well as the scale of their operation – over 1,000 dogs. Their meticulous organization of everything, including the volunteers, is impressive. There is a genuine camaraderie and sense of purpose that binds everyone at Soi Dog Foundation and even if you volunteer for just two days, you feel a part of this exceptional community. I am truly honored to have been a part of their journey, even if for a brief period. Support Soi Dog!
    Dear L3314BTdebw, Thank you for volunteering with us at Soi Dog and taking the time to leave a review. Our volunteers play such an important part in enriching the lives of the dogs and cats here at the shelter, with exercise, playing and most importantly love. We appreciate you encouraging others to become part of the global community of Soi Dog animal lovers, so we can help even more dogs and cats in need. We hope to welcome you back one day! Best wishes.

Went during the rainy period of 30th of Sept 2022. One of the best part of my whole trip in Phuket.

A very calm and tranquil location for animals whom are in need of recuperation and relaxation. My wonderful guide Ms Jenny who is just 7 months into her job was able to explain in detail of every single animal’s story and remember their names to tell me. Even with 3 clinics/ hospitals, they are still brimming with patients and would very much require assistance from those who can provide.

The animals are housed very safely as their temperaments are well understood by their volunteers and staff making it easy for them to mingle and relax in their habitat.

I recommend that you contact Soi Dog either through or social media before going as they will be able to provide you with contacts of people who can bring you from the airport to Soi Dog Foundation. As this was my first part of the trip, I had engaged help this way.

One thing I hope is that they can have more variety in their merchandises and crafts, so that I can spend more in this way to support them too.

In whole, I feel that every human being that has a thought to help and support animals worldwide, should visit the Soi Dog Foundation during their trip in Phuket.

Dear Bloodroses, Thank you for visiting Soi Dog and the wonderful review. Every resident cat and dog here has a unique story of their own, and Jenny loves to share some of these with our visitors. Although we currently have about 1,700 animals at the shelter, each one is treated as an individual to ensure their needs are met every day. We appreciate your feedback regarding the merchandise. If you look online there is even more choice available, as some of the stock is easier to source and supply in other countries. We hope you can visit again one day! Best wishes.

Joined the 9:30 am tour taken by Silvia who is dedicated to providing the best care to the rescued dogs and cats. She was super informative and gave us a history and run down of current care for the dogs and cats. The site is spotless and the animals very well cared for. İt was good to see so many willing, enthusiastic volunteers in our tour. We entered the puppy enclosure where the puppies were unbelievably excited and very cute and the spent time with the cats, which to be honest, are my first love and I would have loved to have taken them all home. All too soon our taxi came to collect us and after a quick chat with Silvia, the purchase of a souvenir t-shirt and donation given, we came away very impressed by what we had seen. We will continue to support Soi Dog via the website and encourage everyone to visit and help this amazing good cause however they can. Grateful thanks to Silvia and the team at Soi Dog.

Hi tazzat7, Thanks You so much for this lovely review, Sounds like you had a fab time indeed. Will let Silvia know how much you enjoyed the tour. The rest of the staff as well as our weekly/monthly volunteers are dedicated to making sure the dogs and cats are looked after to the best of our ability with not just food, water and veterinary support but, also emotionally with lots of love and behaviour support if needed because some of them come from horrific backgrounds. It is also great, you had time to spend with the pups and kitties who are always welcoming attention from visitors and volunteers. Please continue to follow their journey via our social media channels too. Thank you for spreading word about Soi Dog. Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

We took part in a guided tour at SoiDog and we sadly had not the possibility for volunteering. At the end of the tour we all were allowed to go to the puppies and this feeling standing between 20 puppies all wanna cuddle you is totally amazing. When you are there in Phuket you need to take this experience; it‘s unique.
The atmosphere is fullfilled with the passion of all the people working there and you immediately slip into this passion. Within a few minutes you feel part of this big family and you can help with even very small things; they will thank you a lot!

Hi Jogofortravel, Thank You for leaving us this review and sharing your experience with everyone out there. It is lovely to hear that you enjoyed your time at our shelter in Phuket and you felt part of the bigger cause that Soi Dog Foundation stands for. It is a shame you were not here for longer to to volunteer but, to ensure that both the dogs and the volunteers get the most out of a volunteer, we need volunteers to stay with us for at least 2 full days. But, hopefully you will be back next time for longer you can sign up to be a volunteer. Thank YOU for taking the time to visit us. It means so much to all of us.

My partner and I found this a really fulfilling and eye-opening experience.

Soi Dog Foundation is doing incredible work to improve the lives of stray and unwanted dogs (and also cats) in Phuket. The staff seemed very devoted to their work and were incredibly comprehensive in explaining the scale of the issue of stray animals and the awful associated activities that they strive to protect them from (dog meat trade, mutilation, cultural killing), as well as all aspects of the animals’ lives before and in their care.

The tour was great and it was lovely to play with puppies and cats but the most important thing was that the facility was never presented as a “paradise” for animals, rather a crucial place of refuge for animals in need.

Despite the urgent need for financial support, we were never hassled for money. However, we left a cash donation and my partner is going to sponsor a dog. Would happily recommend to others visiting Phuket to swing by and support their work

Dear 25moriartyK, Thank you for visiting Soi Dog and leaving such great feedback. It is important that people see for themselves that the shelter is not a play park for the animals, and that we can only accommodate those who are too vulnerable to survive in the community. We hope to find loving homes for as many of the animals as possible, so we can continue to help even more. We really appreciate your generous donation, and sponsoring one of our dogs. Soi Dog would not be able to continue to do such important work without kind people like yourselves! Best wishes.

Finally got to visit this wonderful place today. Had followed on social media for last couple of years and to meet the wonderful people who care so much for these animals was great. Went on tour around centre and learnt about the origins of it, interacted with puppies and cats and got to meet some of the dogs we had followed the progress off. Highly recommend visiting and will definitely be going back and volunteering my time to help this worthy cause.

Hi katrinac944, We are so happy to hear that you finally got the chance to visit us, especially if you have been following our work for a while online. Nothing beats a visit and seeing it for yourself. It is great you met some of our staff and volunteers AND met some of the animals too. We are sure the kitties and the puppies all enjoyed your company as much you did theirs. We hope you come back and maybe even volunteer, one day? Thanks so much for continuing to be amazing supporters from far. Safe travels.

Landed up at 2.20 PM today, and met with a young Gentleman, named, Owen, tour times I believe are once in the morning and once at 1.30 PM, but Owen was kind enough to show me around, we walked different sections of the facility for over an hour. Its beautiful to see the founders vision and their ability to raise funding privately to shelter between 600-900 dogs. Its amazing, seeing the Vet clinic from the outside and the different areas for these stray/abandoned dogs to have some R&R. Owen said due to the Pandemic they were short handed and between 4 volunteers they rotated walking the dogs one at a time, which I found astounding. Their commitment and ability to be empathetic and work with these unspoken for little beings. Highly recommend going for a visit, to see a state of the art facility for the sick and homeless dogs. It was spotless clean and so many people working there, for dogs and cats of all forms shapes and sizes. I was tempted at adopting one of the puppies, however cause I live in a condo, the place doesn't allow pets, so unable to. Would just like to say, what a great job these volunteers are doing, you could see the passion, kindness and generosity in Owens eyes. He's been working there for 2 years plus and seems to be doing a great job, The only minus being, I went all the way from Chalong, so it was a good 50-60 KM to get there and if you follow the main road, due to overgrown bushes, you might actually miss the sign for the turn off from the highway. I got a little lost but found my way at the end. Would like to commend the work the Likes of Owen does and wish Soi Dog an ability to help and reach out more. There were so many fun facts I didn't know about, so was highly educational, good for kids to journey through. Once again, great job guys ! Keep up the good work !

A team of dedicated folk and a tonne of volunteers doing a tremendous job to give quality of life to our beautiful friends. It's a tough place to visit for I didn't want to leave all the lovely kitties and pups. But I guess you can do so knowing these lovely animals are safe here. Hats off to the Soi Dog Foundation may you get the recognition you truly deserve.

We had a wonderful tour guide whose name I didn’t quite catch (Italian lady with fab piercings and tattoos!). Hearing her speak about the work of Soi Dog and her passion for the animals made it clear this is a very very special place. This was my favourite part of my trip to Phuket and highly recommend everyone stops by to see the work this impressive organisation is doing. The staff know each animal by name and their personalities, you clearly have to love animals and have an amazing memory to work here! Although there is obviously upsetting information about the mistreatment of animals the whole day felt very uplifting and inspiring. There was no pressure to donate but you are going to want to.

Heard about soi dog through a friend that visited the Phuket shelter. I looked them up online and seen all the amazing work they do. Leading up to our visit we did a fund raiser selling soaps then when we came to Phuket we visited ourselves. All the dogs are much loved, cared for and looked after by some amazing people (volunteers, employees, vets) we got a tour of the shelter ending in a play with the gorgeous puppies and cats. Please visit this place. Make a purchase. Donate some money if u can spare it. Visit their website. I can’t remember our tour guides name but he was a tall English man with a beard. He was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The lady at reception was beautiful too! Think she was Scottish? She was very great of our donation and followed us out to thank us when we were leaving. Great job to all at soi dog. I hope I can come back over and volunteer with your team one day. X

Lovely place! It was great to see how well they take care about dogs and cats in need. It is also a nice place for spending some time as they offer an interesting guided tour and you can enjoy some pleasant moments with puppies and cats. I can definetily recommend a visit at Soi Dog Foundation, either if you are interested in adopting a dog/cat or if you just want to visit the place and enjoy some time. Thanks @Soi Dog Foundation for my great visit at your facility in Phuket!!

Hello stefann346, Thank You for visiting Soi Dog and for taking the time to leave this review encouraging more people to visit us, when they are here in Phuket. It was our pleasure having you here. We welcome visitors every week of the year, those who love animals, those who miss their pets on holiday (make up for it, by giving some love back to our rescued pups and kitties) and anyone who is interested in finding out more about the struggles of street animals as well as what can be done to help them. We hope to see you again and meanwhile, do stay in touch via our social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). Enjoy the rest of your travels.
