More than Numbers – Care for Dogs 2013

With the first quarter of 2014 almost over it may be time for a little encouragement and a reminder of what we do at Care for Dogs. Every day we face a poor dog or 2 or 3…you get the idea…that needs our help, this is a never ending task that can sometime lead to frustration, so let’s take a look back at 2013 and see just what we have achieved.
Care for Dogs is and continues to be on the front line of the dog problem in Chiang Mai providing care and attention to those animals in need. Let’s not forget the Care for Dogs motto ‘Saving One Dog will not change the world, but surely, the world will change for that one dog’ and with those words in mind have a read of this insight into how Care for Dogs is changing the life of one dog at a time.

Shanika – a Whole New Life

At Care for Dogs we don’t forget about our former residents and as times goes by and if we’re lucky the last memory won’t be a sad one.

Shanika had hair loss, mange, wounds, and was depressed.

Our team nursed Shanika
