Elvin – latest dumped Puppy
Care for Dogs gets more and more popular in and around Chiang Mai. That is to some people it becomes an alternative to traditional local temples when looking for a destination to dump a dog. This kind of popularity more and more becomes a difficult challenge for Care for Dogs and we can only pray that popularity withing the good people will help us to find enough volunteers, enough donations, enough families willing to adopt dogs from us or people helping fostering so we can keep the pace.
Here just the latest example reported by Khun Jum:
Yesterday morning we found this little boy on the street in front of our shelter. He was crying non-stop and Khun Bee found that he couldn’t move and his front left leg and the back right leg looked unnormal. He hardly could control himself to stand up and was obviously suffering. We took him to the hospital and after being x-rayed, the vet found that his legs were broken. He performed surgery yesterday and now he is recovering at the shelter.
It’s very hard to see the dogs that are dumped off at the shelter. It’s quite very often now. Several days ago we also found 2 distemper puppies in a small sack and 6 puppies in a cage. It’s really so sad to see it almost everyday now. And I would like to tell everyone that we’re helping animals and trying very hard to do the work. Only one organization is not enough to handle the street dog problem here in Chiang Mai. We also need help from everyone. Please be responsible for your animals. Vaccinate them and get them sterilized!! Please stop dumping the dogs!

Michael " Being part of the team I think, was so much more effective. If alone, I would only have given a street dog some food for few days, not knowing what else to do in a strange town when seeing a sick dog. Joining with the other volunteers at CfD, I was part of a steady approach. You give dogs some hope for a better life and don't have to disappoint them when they might wait on you, when your plane already took off. Here is a team and it's just another friendly face, the next (holiday) volunteer will take up your work. [More about Michael]"
