Volunteer of the Month April, 2015 – Meet Jenni! อาสาสมัครประจำเดือนเมษายน 2558 – มารู้จักเจนนีกัน! (ภาษาไทยด้านล่าง)
On behalf of the entire Care for Dogs team, we would like to express our appreciation to the amazing individuals who volunteer their time to help us care for the many abused, homeless and forgotten animals that come into our shelter.
Jenni first came to volunteer at Care for Dogs with her spouse in April 2014 and again in May 2014. She missed the dogs so much that she decided to return to Chiang Mai last October. She says that "when you get to know 200 dogs by their names and personality, it is not easy to leave them when they are in need of walking, care and love.
Jenni will do anything she can to help out from clipping nails, bathing, walking dogs, adoption fairs, fundraising events, FB stories and photography.
As she points out, “"Dogs are the dearest thing to me. Dogs are so straightforward and honest. They are ready to love you with all of their hearts. They are great company, fun, faithful and thankful.
Thank you Jenni for your dedication and compassion to all the dogs in our care. You have truly made a difference in the lives of so many.
Dog of the Week! - Rick! ภาษาไทยด้านล่างคะ - ริค! (ภาษาไทยด้านล่างคะ)
This good looking boy is sociable and enthusiastic, and he absolutely can’t wait to have a pal to roam around with! Rick was rescued from the horrible fate of being caged- after left abandoned. He lived that way for three years until finally he was freed.
He is a strong younger dog that will do well with a good dose of exercise, something he’s missed out on for too long. He is always ready and willing for a stroll and greets people with his lovable smile and wagging tail. He’s ready to walk his new path and finally feel the contentment a permanent home can bring. Most of his life so far hasn’t been ideal.
Could you be the one to show him the humanity he’s yet to experience?
Saturday’s Special Star - Cream! ดาวเด่นเสาร์นี้ - ครีม! (ภาษาไทยด้านล่างคะ)
Cream is a very attractive lady who chooses her company wisely. She is a medium size with a gorgeous ‘cream’ colored coat that won’t be too much bother at all. She loves to receive affection and would like nothing more to be the center of someone’s attention, with no others dogs preferably to block her spotlight. If you would enjoy a beautiful companion to share some love, Cream could be the one for you!
Puppy of the Week - Feeky! ลูกสุนัขประจำสัปดาห์! - ฟีกกี้! (ภาษาไทยด้านล่างคะ)
"Hello there, my name is Feeky and I am a small baby boy with deep black fur.I am not sure how old I am exactly (it is hard to keep track of time as a puppy), but the people at the shelter think I am about 7-8 months old.
I have had a rough start in life and was found chained to a tree near the shelter just two weeks ago.
Even though I am physically unharmed, I was very scared in the beginning of any hand reaching out to me. But many people here have taken great care of me and I am quickly regaining my trust in humans.
I already socialize with dogs around me and with people as well. I have a loving personality – so they say – and I love cuddles and get outright excited and bouncy when I see a familiar face. I am dreaming of a loving family to take me in who has some patience with me and helps me loose the last bit of fear I might sometimes still feel."
