The Soi Dog Foundation was established in 2003 in Phuket, Thailand. The none profit organisation was created to provide both a humane and sustainable solution to managing over 50,000 stray cats and dogs that roamed the island and provide them with the care and compassion they need.
The Soi Dog Foundation work to rescue, vaccinate and provide medial treatment and shelter for a number of animals along with providing an adoption programme to those who cannot be returned to where they came from. Additionally, spaying and neutering programmes help to prevent unwanted puppies and kittens from being born into lives were they suffer. Since the foundation in 2003, Soi Dog have expanded into other provinces in Thailand like Bangkok where there is an approximate population of around 640,00 street dogs. They work on a number of sterilisation programmes to help humanly reduce the stray animal populations. Due to this they hope to have drastically reduce the stray population on the island of Phuket.
On top of all of this Soi Dog campaign to improve the lives of animals across the whole of Asia, they help animals affected by natural disasters, such as the severe flooding in Southern Thailand in 2017 and the tsunami in 2004.
Soi Dog are also having a huge impact on the dog meat trade in China, Thailand, South Korea and Vietnam. With everybody’s support they have worked to nearly completely white out the dog meat trade in Thailand and have a number of campaigns running across other South-East Asian countries.
Simply, Soi Dogs mission is to improve the welfare of Dogs and Cats in Asia and aiming to create a society without homeless animals and to end animal cruelty. It is incredible to see work like this taking place in the world.
