There cannot be enough – Santisook Cat Rescue – New Kitten Shelter in Town
Chiang Mai is not Thailand’s smallest town and region and often rescue calls reach us not only from town and suburbs but from the country side, too.
So there are times Care for Dogs faces challenges one animal rescue group is not enough to handle and that’s a fact even when our focus is about dogs. But often we find cats in need, too and we don’t close our eyes on their needs either.
As just one example we came across that case of animal hoarding in Payao, a big number of cats in terrible conditions, we were desperate and acknowledging our limited resources we looked around for help and found support other animal rescue groups like recently Santisook which has agreed to take in 8 cats, we appreciate their help very much.
Despite our efforts with sterilization programs, education initiatives with schools on animal welfare and acting as an adoption agencies to reduce the number of stray dogs (and cats), it seems we always work to our full capacity at the shelter only able to take in most urgent cases.
Now we received info from Gill who announced the opening of Sanitsiook’s brand new Cat Rescue Shelter.
And though (or because?) I’m afraid their new shelter will be full in no time, we give a big welcome to that additional support for animals in need in the Chiang Mai area – There cannot be enough!

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]"
