From a Cruel Beginning to a Wonderful Life!

As the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

When Lamai came into our care, she was a very shy, frightened dog. We didn’t know why, but certainly she had endured a life of a lonely street dog, trying to survive.

Buddy had been abused by his previous owner before he came into our care. He too, had endured a life full of misery and never knew the kind and loving touch of a human hand.

Lamai and Buddy were adopted by a loving couple in Germany, and are now much loved members of their family.

Every day at Care for Dogs, we see unimaginable cruelty, sadness and despair that is sometimes hard to put into words.

Let these pictures speak for themselves.

We are so appreciative of this family that opened their home and hearts to two unknown street dogs who needed a safe place to call home.

Thank You Nicole & Frank!



Khun Cory – Shelter Manager

coryMy wife always says that no matter how angry or depressed I am, all she has to do to make me feel better is show me a picture of puppies. My love for animals started when I was really young. While my friends where catching frogs, lizards, and all types of insects, I was letting them go. When I was 8 I rescued an alligator snapping turtle. This was the first time I realized how smart animals were because the turtle would snap at everyone but me.

My first dog was a rescued Labrador Collie mix named Wylie. He was a great dog and unfortunately died from cancer; but in his 10 years he hooked me. I knew that I would always want animals around me. After a few years as a teacher I decided that I needed a career change. I followed the words of Voltaire, “hold true to the dreams of thy youth.” The dream of my youth was to work with animals.

I am fortunate now to have met Karin and to have been invited to join the Care for Dogs team. I am now able to get back to what I love, working with and for animal. Humanity must speak for the animals. We need to scream and shout for them so they can be heard. Care for Dogs gives thousands of animals the chance to be heard.

I know I have found a great job and a wonderful place to work. I am grateful for the work this job allows me to do. I would recommend Care for Dogs to anyone who loves animals or wants to adopt a four legged friend.


Community, military and CFD together rescue mother and puppies

On June 26 Khun Jum got a rescue call from someone who had found a mother dog and her puppies, staying inside the drain at the moat at Chang Phuek and they needed our help because soon the water will be released into the moat so they afraid that all of them will drown.

K.Jum headed to the place right after the she got off the phone to meet the people who had seen the dogs -K.Job and K.Phet (shown in the photos). As soon as she arrived and met these kind people, they saw the 5 puppies and their mommy inside the drain. Seeing this is sad and happy in the same time.

And one more thing that really impressed us was the soldiers at the base camp helped us to get all the puppies out from the drain. With the help of everyone, now the mother and her pups are safe and sound now at Care for Dogs.

Care for Dogs 8th birthday party


Saturday June 14th was Care for Dog’s 8th Annual Birthday Party. We would like to thank Liam’s SuanDokMai Guesthouse for such a lovely party. The food was delicious, the service was fantastic and the grounds were beautiful. Plus, they had a lovely dog that would smile when you scratched his belly. We would also like to thank CityNow for the fantastic photos that they took. Please check out the links to Liam’s SuanDokMai Guesthouse and CityNow below.

A Few Steps Closer to Freedom

Do you remember the family of four caged temple dogs that we introduced to you last month? The same family that we organised the “Freedom Walk” for?

Well, we are delighted to share with you that this family; who has become affectionately known as “The Black Beauties” (Mum – Penny, and her three daughters – Olive, Juup and Berri) are now free of their cage! They are now at our shelter for a temporary stop whilst they wait for their forever homes. They’re loving the food, walks, freedom to move around, and love and affection that they’re receiving at our shelter, but even so, this is no substitute for a loving home.

Could you provide Penny, Olive, Juup or Berri with the home they deserve, and the freedom they yearn for? Contact us at adoption-pr@carefordogs.org
