    Soi Dog Foundation begs for public donations to help feed rescued dogs
    January 29, 2014

    The Phuket-based Soi Dog Foundation is calling for public donations to help feed dogs rescued from the illegal dog meat trade.

    The foundation said it had to shoulder over Bt1.3 million a month to cover food alone for some 4,000 rescued dogs being kept at shelters in several provinces.

    The foundation said it has been shipping nearly 60 tonnes of feeds to help the dogs at animal shelters in Nakhon Phanom, Khemaraj, Buri Ram and Thong Pha Phume.

    Interested donors can help the Soi Dog Foundation direct through its account number 403-109854-1 SCB Crystal Park branch or contact its public relations officer at: (083) 063 6463 or pawena.toon@soidog.org.

    The simple solution is to neuter and vaccinate every soi dog, tag its ear so we know which ones are safe. Within 10 years there will be no dog problem. Strychnine supporters - please do not recommend what you are not willing to try yourself.

    Which SDF, SCAD and virtually every other org in Thailand is doing.

    I think that time frame is optimistic. Very optimistic. I started doing that (small scale) in Hua Hin well over 10 years ago. SDF and SCAD have been going a lot longer than that. It's not solved yet.
    What about owned dogs? A lot of owners, Thai and Farang, let their unneutered dogs roam. They mate, too.
    I agree with you. ABC is the answer. It needs to be done a lot more comprehensively than is being managed at the moment. The Government need to get behind it, make laws governing owned dogs and start an all encompassing neuter and vaccination programme. That ain't going to happen. It never was, and certainly not now, when the politicos have other things to think of.

    well this is just fantasy, like using a thimble to bale out a sinking ship. Been coming here 20 years now and never once seen one of these tagged dogs, there are hundreds of thousands of these dreadful pests and this nonsense of lets sterilise them and the problem will go away it won't because so few are ever done and strays breeding away quickly replaces those that cannot breed. Govt cannot be bothered, cost too much anyway, needs to be a large scale rounding up and sadly putting down, I would donate to that, but not pipe dreams. 1.3 mill a month could soon solve the problem.

    SDF doesn't tag the dogs when it does one of its mobile clinics to snip or spay them, they give the dog a tattoo inside its ear to show it has been done.

    ^A lot of places do different. Some tag, many tattoo, some even make a small cut in the ear.

    And what is your solution to the owned or partially owned dogs, Xanax? They will continue to breed. Your problem will continue.
    And what about the dogs in temples? Considering the Buddhist objection to killing, and the fact many unwanted dogs are dumped in temples to be "cared for", you reckon your cull idea will go down there?

    Gruesome as the comparison is, your culling idea is just as much of a

    soi dogs don't look like this one on the poster and why should dogs be saved from the meat trade when millions of cows pigs and sheep are killed every year for it. These dogs need to be culled not fed, idiots.

    Shame I don't have any of my old pics. We had a pup, Lightning (Littl'un loved the film "Cars") and he looked very golden lab. At the same time we had some kits, and I had some gorgeous photos of Lightning and the kits curled up sleeping together. Real birthday card type photos - and they were rescued soi animals.

    If you eat sheep, pigs, cows and chicken NR you are a hypocrite like all the rest of the soppy dog lovers. Dogs are no different, my mrs says I am daft about dogs but I am not a sentimentalist. If they are a menace as many are here are i say get them put down one way or another.

    1 For most of the time I ran HRD I was a vegetarian (and for a good few years before that). It was actually the vast quantities of meat product I was buying for the dogs that made me see that me being veggie wasn't affecting the big picture one iota.
    2 Everyone who hasn't got a better argument throws in that one. No offence. There is no correlation. I'm not advocating eating or not eating dogs. I'm simply stating that an ABC programme, carried out properly, would be more effective than culling.
