Happy Ever After!

Bilbo happy in the arms of his new mom. Feeky when he was abandoned in front of our shelter gate. Unwanted no more! Feeky was adopted into a loving home. Maxwell is one happy puppy about being adopted!

At Care for Dogs, we LOVE adoptions! Seeing dogs come into our care that have experienced a horrible past or injury, be welcomed into the loving arms of a caring family, makes our day.

Thank you to these families for opening their hearts and home to some very special dogs.

Khuen – Feeling MUCH Better!

11351313_10153339096069044_4988271998743579380_n 11011814_10153339096344044_3495201315003039417_n 11011203_10153339096789044_9161911196290566424_n

When Khuen came into our care last week, it was yet another rescue that was heart breaking to think of the pain that this poor dog must have endured.

Khuen had massive swelling on the side of his face and neck, which is believed to be from an infected bite wound. If that wasn’t bad enough, he was infested with literally thousands of fleas. Unable to eat of drink, he surely would have not survived life on the streets had we not been alerted to his dire situation.

Our vet team took him into surgery and removed 500ml of fluid from the infected area and also sterilised Khuen at the same time.

Now, he is looking and feeling much better and is well on his way to a full recovery.


May 2015 Volunteer of the Month – Meet Lindy!


We have been lucky to have Lindy’s energy and enthusiasm for over 4 years.

In the past, she organized a few small fundraisers through her workplace that were a lot of fun and helped raise much needed funds for the dogs in our care.

She helps with our vet team, trying to be helpful with anything that needs doing and offers extra TLC to some of our special care rescues.

Lindy is also an invaluable foster mom, offering her home to some of our orphaned puppies that need constant care and guidance.

She has adopted some very special dogs that were in our care, whom she fell in love with after coming in week after week to give them their special medicated baths.

When asked why she volunteers with us, her reply:

“I’ve been a fan of Care for Dogs since it’s beginning, getting to know founder Karin and being amazed by her energy and accomplishments.

Care for Dogs is the volunteer group for me because I get to be around dogs, the occasional cat, and also people who would do anything to help a Thai street dog, or an animal in distress. They’re my kind of people.”

Thank you Lindy. Your dedication and commitment has truly made a difference in the lives of so many.
