OK

This is a series of diaries highlighting animal rescues around the country and noting and celebrating the work they do to help animals who have no voices but ours to speak for them. I have decided to make this a daily series because there are so many wonderful rescues out there who need human help and weekly just doesn't seem to be enough. I have long wanted to start a rescue but lack the resources or time available to do so right now so this is my attempt to do my part. Today's rescue is rescuing dogs in Thailand from the illegal dog meat and skin trade. I hope that these rescues will benefit from the kindness and benevolence of the community here at Daily Kos. They are amazing organizations and worthy of Kossack attention and care.
I am here, alive and all around you

I have no voice

In your trees, your air, your fields, your oceans, your world

I have no voice

I am a mother, a father, a protector, a soul

I have no voice

I can walk, crawl, sing, fear

I have no voice

You must be my voice

Soi Dog The Movie
Stolen From The Streets Of Northern Thailand...

Thousands and thousands of dogs have been stolen from the streets of Thailand over the past 30 years.  Street dogs and pets are lured and stuffed into wire cages where they can barely breathe.

Terrified, they travel for days and days with no food or water.  At their final destination they are unloaded from their cages, tortured and boiled alive and their skins ripped from their bodies in the twisted belief that this will make their meat taste better.

Please take a moment to watch this short video to gain a better understanding of the plight of these dogs and their desperate need to find loving homes...

Meet Shiver,  founder of our "Puppy Care Club...

Hi, my name is Shiver. When I was just 4 months old, I lived all alone in a drain beside the road. I don't remember much about it, as I was very sick and I thought I was going to die. One day a very kind truck driver found me & took me to Soi Dog. The people at Soi Dog looked after me & made me better. I  had no hair & I was covered in mange. After my treatment I feel much better because someone cares about me. Soi dog has many puppies like me to care for, but they need help.  You can read more about me and contribute here

Recognizing the tragic plight of the neglected and homeless animals in Phuket and other provinces throughout Thailand the Soi Dog Foundation was established in 2003 to address this issue. Soi Dog has made a significant and noticeable impact in improving the lives of tens of thousands of animals and continues to expand its support for homeless, abused and neglected animals.

Soi Dog Foundation is the only organization on Phuket who have a help line and respond to emergency calls.

Soi Dog spends over 500,000 Thai Baht ($15,000 USD) per month treating, neutering and spaying sick and injured dogs and cats. Many of which are the victims of cruelty.

There is an old saying that saving the life of one animal does not change the world but it does change the world for that animal.

Animals that can be returned to their original locations are returned when fully recovered.

Animals that have been ill treated or abused, or who’s treatment has taken many months and will no longer be accepted in their original habitat remain at the shelter. These animals often make great pets and are available for adoption.

Those animals which cannot be adopted or returned to their original habitat are available for sponsorship.

The animals pictured above, as well as thousands more have been given new and improved lives as a result of Soi Dog's efforts and our supporter's generosity. Soi Dog relies exclusively on donations to continue this work. Please consider helping Soi Dog to continue this work by: Donating Today
