Save stray dogs and cats in SE Asia!
Soi Dog means literally street dogs in Thai language. But nowadays they also care for other animals like stray cats.
Soi Dog Foundation (Soi Dog) was established in 2003 in Phuket, Thailand, to help the street dogs and cats who had no-one else to care for them. Over 50,000 strays roamed the island, with the numbers growing alarmingly due to a lack of sterilisation (spay/neuter) programmes to control the population. Soi Dog was created to provide a humane and sustainable solution to managing the stray population and to address their medical needs. Funding then, as it is now, came entirely from individuals who shared, and continue to share, the vision of our founders.
The Work of Soi Dog Foundation
The work of Soi Dog with street animals consists of spaying and neutering to prevent unwanted puppies and kittens being born into short lives of suffering, along with the rescue, vaccination, medical treatment, sheltering, and adoption of those that cannot be returned to their territory.
Every year, Soi Dog spays/neuters and vaccinates tens of thousands of street dogs and cats in Phuket, Bangkok, and other provinces of Thailand, and has to date sterilised more than 173,000 animals. We are conducting a series of mobile sterilisation clinics across the Bangkok metropolitan area, home to approximately 640,000 street dogs. This project will eventually comprise ten mobile clinics and will take an estimated seven years to complete.
Sterilisation is the only proven sustainable and humane means of reducing the stray animal population. Thanks to your support of our work in Phuket, the stray population on the island is now officially under control. Global studies have shown that once 80% of the population has been sterilised, the number of animals living on the streets begins to decline naturally. By 2025, there should be very few strays on the streets and beaches of Phuket.
Soi Dog also campaigns for an improvement in animal welfare rights across Asia, and helps animals affected by natural disasters, such as the severe flooding in southern Thailand in 2017 and prior to that, the Bangkok floods of 2011 and the Asian tsunami of 2004.
To improve the welfare of dogs and cats in Asia, resulting in better lives for both the animal and human communities, to create a society without homeless animals, and to ultimately end animal cruelty.
