About the workproject

We need 5 volunteers

I am an Australian teacher living in Songkhla, Thailand. I started a rescue centre in 2012. My passion and mission is to vaccinate, sterilize, medicate, feed, adopt and love as many street dogs as possible. I have 13 dogs in my home, 20 dogs and 4 cats at my foster home and 43 dogs at my dog sanctuary. Once the dogs are healed and healthy, I strive to find forever families for them. I also care for around 20 dogs on the streets, providing food and medical treatments.

Four years ago, I made the big decision that my heart had been telling me to do for years. I sold or gave away most of my belongings, rented my house out, took leave from my teaching job and moved back to Thailand.

I know I can't save every dog, but for every dog I save, that is one dog that is better off. My belief is one dog at a time. I hope you can help me help them.

I am an Aussie teacher, now running a dog rescue in the deep south of Thailand. Each and every day I am trying to make a difference to the street dogs and establish education programs within our community.
