Treatment free of charge for all streetdogs and cats on Samui island
With your help we are still able to desex 6 animals per day. Within the past 17 years we desexed more than 20000 cats and dogs and organized an uncountable number of vaccinations and treatments.
We offer medical treatments for all cats and dogs with pick-up service even outside our business hours - and it doesn't matter if the animals have an owner or not. As soon as we would ask the more or less poor Thais for a payment a lot of them wouldn't bring their animals to the vet anymore because they would fear that the treatment is not affordable for them.
Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 situation and missing out on the many tourist donations, we can no longer provide free treatments for all. We now temporarily have to charge all dog owners at least a little.
Dr. Sith works 6 days a week at our shelter in Baan Taling Ngam. He desexes 6 animals per day and has to face a lot of emergency cases. During the whole day there is a brisk visitor-traffic at the shelter.
A lot of Thais and foreign residents bring their cats and dogs for treatments and vaccinations.
The shelter is opened monday till sunday from 9 am to 5:30 pm. Saturdays Dr. Sith works at the shelter from 9 am to 2 pm. If Dr. Sith is not available at the shelter some of our helpers can do the vaccinations and emergency treatments.
Dr. Sith has his consultation hours at our house in Chaweng Tuesday and Friday from 5 pm till 6 pm.
As our house is located in the middle of Chaweng near a huge marketplace a lot of Thais live there with their "pets". A lot of the Thais feed a dog once a day for years and still say that this dog doesn't belong to them. The dog has a different opinion for sure and so do I.
When they bring their dog for a medical treatment they tell us that it doesn't belong to them to save the payment.
But for us it doesn't matter at all if the dog has an owner or not - medical treatments and vaccinations are free of charge for ALL animals.
Meanwhile a lot of Thais admit to their animals and the consultation hours are well accepted and much frequented.
Of course we are happy with your donations.
