Homeless Dogs

Is their a Soi Dog Foundation rep in KL with whom we can leave a donation, or anyone who takes it upon themselves to assist the homeless animals? I'd be quite happy to buy dog/cat food if a donation's not appropriate.

Hi

There is a soi dog foundation in Phuket www.soidog.org also the Sarojin have a foundation to help the local comunity and one of the projects is employing a community local vet to help with homeless animals www.sarojin.com/community.html .It does tug at the heart strings when you see all the stray dogs.There did used to be a samall local based rescue center as i did see it advertised somewhere when i was in Khao lak perhaps the soi dog in Phuket can give you details or the Sarojin.

Temples also take care of dogs, they welcome bags of dry food etc. So instead of mone you can buy dry food and deliver to the temple, it is always welcome. B 1,000 would but 2 'huge' bags of dry food.

The Sarojin idea of helping a vet sounds very good also.

Thanks everyone. So pleased to know their welfare is taken into account. I know many overseas vets assist the Soi Dog Foundation in Phuket but doubt that the service extends as far as KL so I think I might donate to the Sarojin's vet assistance and buy some food to leave at the temple.

Hi

there were a few stray dogs nipping in and out of the Le Meridien resort whilst we were there, they did however keep themselves to themselves and didnt take any notice of the guests staying in the resort I actually found them to be quite commical and they looked to be in very good shape.

Hi again Jenson

Well the dogs I dont mind, in our hotel in Krabi room service trays were left outside the rooms one tray was standing there for over 36 hours, upon our return one evening we were met with a rat having a go at the leftovers I will talk about that hotel shortly on the Krabi forum.
