Two of our local and cherished supporters, Bob and La, feed and look after many dogs at City Hall. One of Bob’s favorite dogs there is Funny Feet (also known as Happy Feet). Last week Bob put out a nice, comfy rug for Funny Feet to sleep on. Very soon afterwards, however, Funny Feet’s rug […]

Here in the last image of the gallery you can see Shanika on arrival at our shelter almost a year ago. She had been owned by a dentist who had let her go downhill and lost interest – maybe he had once been bought as a status symbol. Neighbours had alerted us and brought her in. Shanika had hair loss, mange, wounds, and was depressed.

Zeuss – Another Street Dog Rescue

Sometimes people question why we also do rescues and don’t concentrate on sterilisations only. Well, when doing sterilisations it won’t take long and you come across sick or injured dogs as well. Dogs like Zeus are the reason why we just can’t turn a blind eye on the ones that can’t help themselves. As Khun […]

A Mom Comes Back

Past week one of our very pregnant rescued doggies started contracting earlier in the day but, after a few hours and still no puppies, we knew there might be a problem.
