I visited and donated to your stall tonight at the Night Market Street and looked into your work. Just wanted to say as a Thai-born tourist (and an ex-veterinary nurse) that it’s fantastic what you guys do and it’s organisations like you that retain any hope left in the world. Keep up the great work guys!
Looking forward to visiting and helping out at your shelter the next time I visit Chiang Mai. ♥

Escaping from Death.

Written by admin. Posted in Dog and Cat Rescue Story

Fairy is very lucky, she was survived after hitting by a car. Fon was driving to the VET clinic on Samueng intersection when she saw a lifeless body of the cat on the street. She braked suddenly and asked one of the worker what happened to this cat. She said the cat was hit by a pick-up and must be dead as she had a lot of blood on her mouth and she was not breathing. Fon asked the worker to put the body of the cat on her car so she can bury her. Suddenly she saw the cat tried to move and lift up her head. She picked her up quickly and took her to the VET. The VET gave her an injection to help her from the shock and stitched up the wound on her mouth. Luckily nothing was broken and she stayed at the VET for 2 days. Now she is a happy healthy cat. She lives at our shelter with lot of friends. We called her Fairy and she is lucky to be alive.

“Bod” is an old blind dog who was dumped around the Irrigation Canal Road. He hid himself in the bush and scared to come out. Luckily the lady saw him and gave him some food. She called Santisook to help looking after him. We took him to the VET but nothing can be done as he has been blind for a long time. Since then we have taken care of him, given him special care and safe place to live. He spent his life at our shelter til the last day of his life.

Written by admin. Posted in Dog and Cat Rescue Story

Eighteen survivors from Lamphun and 13 puppies were moved to Santisook shelter. It was a big task and with the help of Khun Dip from the ARK, the task was a big success. A tranquilizer was required for half of them as the dogs are aggressive and scared. It took almost all day to capture them and transported to Santisook shelter in Chiangmai. Now they are safe, four dogs and 1 puppy were died from poisoning at the temporary shelter at Lamphun. Now the case is still under investigated by the police. All the witnesses had been interviewed and the warrant will be issued soon.

GVI Dog Sterilization Project 29th August

Written by admin. Posted in Dog and Cat Rescue Story

Last week we packed up our trucks and headed off on the 225km journey back to Mae Chaem to continue our dog sterilisation project with GVI. We had two vets, Kn Jaidee and Kn Fak, nursing assistant Kh Unn, Kn Dip with his blow-dart gun and two Santisook volunteers. Also on hand to help were the staff and volunteers at GVI Base Camp. It was a very successful trip – Sterilising 18 female dogs, 2 male dogs, 2 female cats and 1 male cat. Kn Dip bagged 14 dogs in total, he’s one cool dude with that blow-dart gun! Two of the pregnant dogs had given birth to 10 puppies between them! So we’re not finished yet. We will get these 2 females dogs sterilised in a few months time and we plan to go back in six months to sterilise all of the pups. We need funds to help us complete this very important project, please consider donating today, Details on our website. Full story: Karen hill tribe dog sterilisation project with GVI

“WE ARE SHOCKED YET AGAIN by another incident of cruel and senseless poisoning. We, the Thai people, have to act now to break this culture of the senseless poisoning of our street dogs. It is unacceptable to us as Buddhists” Quote from Santisook Founder Kh Lek to local newspapers in Chiang Mai.

 Yesterday, we had a call from the Care Taker at Lumphun. Some of our rescued dogs had died from poisoning.  This is the group we rescued them from San Pu Loei at Lumphun on August 20th. We had placed them in a temporary shelter while we looked for a permanent site. Four of the females had given birth to 20 puppies, and all the dogs were doing very well.  ( 1346 Views)

The saddest photo of all. This lovely mother dog and her puppy.

We do not wish to shock. But we do feel that people need to see the result of poisoning.

Poisoning of street dogs and cats is an everyday occurrence here. Death is slow and very painful.

People have to see the outcome of this disgusting practice. It goes against every Buddhist principal that so many of us hold dear. — ใน Amphoe Muang Lamphun, Lamphun

Boon Kam just after surgery

Boon Kam just after surgery

Boon Kam was missing from his home area for over a month. When he returned, he had a deep chop wound across his face and his left eye was missing. Boon Kam is a street cat, but an old man used to feed him most days. Unable to afford vet bills, the old man treated the wound himself for more than two weeks. 

Eventually, Boon Kam’s photo turned up on Facebook, and people started asking about him. ( 749 Views)
