GLORIA (female)

 

Since I was a little puppy I believed that our family was a little strange. We are 6 brothers and sister and every one of us looks totally different. One is white/brown, one is black, the other has a little beard, another one has quite short hair….a total strange mix! Even our characters are different. I don’t remember where we were born. We were separated from our mother when we were only 8 weeks old, totally mangy and underfed and therefore nobody wanted to adopt us. It looks like we will spend our life here at the shelter- not too bad though but an own family would definitely be a dream!

Sara from Australia is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

 

FLETSCHI (female)

 

My name is Fletschi, born in the beginning of 2015 and I have been here at the shelter since I was a very small puppy. Together with almost 10 of my very close playmates I have just recently been moved out of the puppy house and into a much bigger outside compound at the Dog Rescue. We all haven't had an easy time and know nothing more than this shelter. I guess it's a good thing so we don't know what we are missing. Still though, sometimes i wish i had my own family. We are all doing well and hope that someone is willing to support us... :-)

 

Conny from Herborn in Germany has taken over my sponsorship for her husband Christian, Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MOON (female)

Mirko, Wallis and myself all got to the shelter when we were very little. As tiny woundable puppies we were dropped at the shelter and then went to foster people (which was super fun) until we were fully vaccinated. Unfortunately nobody has been interested in adopting us and so now was the time for us to move out of the puppy house and move into one of the big outside compounds at the shelter. What we all feared turned out to really cool and we just love the big space to run and play around. All is good and we have settled here.

 

 

Paul from Sweden is now looking after me. Thank you so very much!

 

 

 

SILKE (female)

I was dropped outside the big shelter, tied to the gate. I was injured and needed help but nobody knows where I came from and what really happened to me. For me that´s cool, my past is in the past, I never look back and focus on the future only. I am a really cute young dog and I guess that`s why the Dog Rescue-people didn`t just put me in an outside compound but instead let me be free in the open kitchen area of the shelter. I have a lot of playmates here and all is good now.

 

 

Sylvia from the Netherlande is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Major (male)

 

A big-hearted animal friend saw me helplessly standing beside the road and called the Dog Rescue Centre for help. I was in very bad condition and desperate for help so I didnt even fight back when they tried to catch me.... it could only get better. Now I live at the puppy house at the big shelter and recovering slowly. With the right medication and proper food, I`m sure that I will soon feel a lot better. Even though I´m still a bit shy with people, I do like it here and the other doggies are great.

Nicole from Switzerland is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

SITA (female)

 

Carina Song and I are both still very young dogs and have just been sterilised. Brigitte thinks it`s very lickely that maybe somone falls in love with one of us and maybe would want to take us to Germany. So we`ve had all the necessary injections and have also passed the blood test, basically we are both ready to fly as soon as someone wants to adopt us. Until then of course we are both looking for someone to sponsor us....

 

Tatjana and Joe from Blankenfelde in Germany are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

JAMIE (male)

 

My name is Jamie and I was - together with my 4 siblings - dumped in a rice bag outside the shelter. We were lucky that this was not the first time someone dumped young dogs in a bag so when the DRCS-Car drove in, they immediately stopped and checked the bag before driving over it. They dumped us right in the middle of the road leading to the Dog Rescue gate.... We are thankful that this horrible story ended with a Happy-End and we are all doing fine now. We are being cared for really well here and have a lot of fun playing around in the compound.

 

Leon from Stuttgart in Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

CARINA (female)

 

I was promised a nice home in Austria with my own loving family. Unfortunately this has never happened and nobody hears from the people anymore. I now live at the small shelter in Chaweng. Thankfully the DRCS-people understood that i dont like to be locked up so they gave me the chance to be a free dog whenever i want to. I go in and out just the way i please. Most of the time i`m outside in front of the shelter with many other doggies. We have a dog house here, food and water and I am pretty happy. Now i just hope that somone wants to support me....

 

Manuela from Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

ZINKA (female)

 

My name is Zinka and I was - together with my 4 siblings - dumped in a rice bag outside the shelter. We were lucky that this was not the first time someone dumped young dogs in a bag so when the DRCS-Car drove in, they immediately stopped and checked the bag before driving over it. They dumped us right in the middle of the road leading to the Dog Rescue gate.... We are thankful that this horrible story ended with a Happy-End and we are all doing fine now. We are being cared for really well here and have a lot of fun playing around in the compound.

 

Carola from Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!"

 

 

 

ADUA (female)

 

My name is Adua and I'm one of the so called 'Garden Centre-dogs'. It's very unfortunate and sad that I have to get used to a totally new environment - and this at my age! We (almost 10 of us) used to live at a very big garden centre here on Samui and had a great and loving home. One dark day our owner found herself in some pretty serious trouble because of us and she had to immediately find a solution. Of course she couldn't find a home for any of us and so there was no other place for us to go but the Dog Rescue Centre. We are all trying our best to settle in and make our peace with the whole situation...

 

Andrea from Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

KELLY (female)

 

My name is Kelly, born in the beginning of 2015 and I have been here at the shelter since I was a very small puppy. Together with almost 10 of my very close playmates I have just recently been moved out of the puppy house and into a much bigger outside compound at the Dog Rescue.

Alex and Pauli from Munich in Germany are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

 

FOXI (male)

 

I'm the funny looking Foxi and have been abandoned by my old owner due to my little fur-problem. I think they were embarrassed to walk around with me in public and I believe now that they never really cared about me, otherwise they would have not just brought me to the Dog Rescue and never showed up again to check on me. I'm sure they were happy to finally get rid of me. This all doesn't matter anymore now, I have found a new home here at Brigitte and Werners place and now I even have a sponsor!

Felicity and Phil are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

 

PUMUCKL (male)

 

I was found on the road not far from the shelter and was in desperate need of help. That was when I was still a very sick and young puppy. Thankfully the last few months have been amazing for me at the shelter. I was well cared for, recovered fast, could get vaccinated and now even sterilized. I live at the small shelter in Chaweng and quite love it here. There are plenty of other young dogs to play with too. Now I just need a litle bit of extra support to secure my future here....

I was very lucky and found a new home on Koh Samui.

During my time at the shelter, Evan from Denmark was looking after me.

Thank you very much!

 

Evan from Denmark is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

REDNOSE (female)

 

I came to Brigittes house when I was still a kitten. They all fell in love with me from the first day on. I love people and love to snuggle. I guess that was the reason why I was allowed to come back to the house after being sterilised at the big shelter. I love it here and have no other future plans.

Gerlinde from Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

AIMIE (female)

 

The long time volunteers Jay and Linda found me on the road after I was hit by a car and took me home with them. The accident happened at night and not far from their house so I received first aid from them and the luxury of a big comfy bed, too. They kept me on a drip for a day and gave me the necessary medication. I went to see the vet a few times but thankfully Jay and Linda always took me back home again until I completely recovered. The accident left me with some brain damage and one damaged eye but other than that I’m doing fine and feel quite good at the shelter. I now living in a teenager compound where there’s always something going on.

Jon and Lisa from Australia are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ZELDA (female)

It hurts to even think about the pain I had to go through before I was saved by the Dog Rescue Center. It was horrible what was happening to my skin when I was still very young. First the hair started to fall out – I guess I could have lived with that-but when my skin started to open up and I was constantly bleeding all over the place, that’s when it got really bad for me. All has changed now and I’ve been allowed to recover and grow up here at the Dog Rescue. Life is good now!

The students from the Animal Welfare Club at Sturgis Charter Public School in den USA are now looking after me. Thank you so very much!

 

 

LESTER (male)

 

My name is Lester, born in the late summer of 2014 and I have been here at the shelter since I was a very small puppy. Together with almost 10 of my very close playmates I have just recently been moved out of the puppy house and into a much bigger outside compound at the Dog Rescue. We all haven't had an easy time and know nothing more than this shelter. I guess it's a good thing so we don't know what we are missing. Still though, sometimes i wish i had my own family. We are all doing well and hope that someone is willing to support us... :-)

 

Claudia from Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

I was very lucky and found a new home on Koh Samui. During my time at the shelter was Claudia looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

PISA (female)

 

We are three sister, Macy, Enja and myself who came to the shelter when we were still very young. Thankfully the Temple-Team gave us double vaccine before they took us in. That really did the trick! While many other puppies got sick around us –mainly the once brought to the shelter without being vaccinated first, we enjoyed a great time playing around with the other puppies and are now big enough to move out. We have all been spayed and just enjoyed the first amazing run-around in this super big outside compound at the shelter. There is even grass growing here, simply amazing!

Franz aus Reichenburg is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

ALEXIS (female)

 

I used to be a very shy young dog and tried to stay completely in the background, always made sure that i didn't get into trouble and was hoping that the other dogs would leave me alone. Due to that behaviour I didn't get a lot of love from the people at the shelter either coz the other dogs were always faster and lined up in front of me. Slowly but surely I am changing my attitude and have a made a name for myself. I love to get some looove from visitors and fight for my space in the first row now.

Daniela from Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

MARY (female)

 

Pico and I have both been threatened to be poisoned if we would ever appear there again. We actually thought that we had quite a good life there and that people like us. Maybe we were wrong, or maybe it was just one individual who wanted us away. So or so, we are now both at the Dog Rescue Center and have settled in very well. Pico has gone to the big shelter, while I preferred to stay here in Chaweng outside Brigittes house and play with the other youngsters.

 

Gabi from Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

SUI (female)

 

I was trying to live quietly at one of the hotels in Chaweng but the security guard didn't like me and constantly chased me away. He even kicked me. However, he kicked me at the wrong time and he was spotted by some tourists (Jill and Barry). They contacted Brigitte who charged along in her chariot and took me to safety. I now live in the big shelter at Ban Taling Ngam and am settling in very well. Because I am so beautiful, Jill and Barry fell in love with me and they are now my godparents. After a while I found it to boring at the shelter and decided to run away.

 

While I was living at the DRCS Jill and Barry from UK were looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

MAGGIE (female)

 

I have been at the shelter for several months now, together with my lovely sister Anka and brother Jabari. We live in the house of Brigitte and Werner and enjoying a pretty cool life. To be honest, I hope nobody will ever adopt us, we love it here and call it home...

Clarissa from Kehl-Bodersweier in Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

LUNCH (male)

 

I arrived at the shelter in a plastic bag and was given to a volunteer before my 'donor' escaped out of the gate. The volunteer thought I was something nice to eat (hence my name) but I am just something nice to hold and play with. There are lots of kittens here at the shelter but I am really too mature for them. They play and I watch them play. I like it when we get visitors as they always seem to want to hold and cuddle me. Hurrah, I've found a home with a couple of nice animal friends who live on the island. The food I get at my new joint is the soft cat food and not mixed with rice - ah bliss! They promised I can go back to the DRCS any time.
CLARA (female)

 

I came into the shelter because a tourist thought I was too thin and I was being bullied by the other dogs on the beach. This isn't my first visit here as I came in to be neutered a few months ago. I'm actually quite fit and healthy but Brigitte says I am too thin at the moment to look after myself. I like it here at the shelter and am not frightened by the dogs. I like it here because there is plenty of food and I speak to all the visitors when they come in.

 

Good news for me as I am now a German doggie living with Marcus & Eva. Thank you

Debbie from the USA for looking after me while I was staying with Brigitte. Thank you very much!

PINGU (female)

 

I was brought to the shelter by some tourists who had found me and my sister wandering in the streets. Brigitte took us in but all she had to do was feed and vaccinate us as there was nothing wrong with us. My sister was rehomed soon afterwards and I hope I will get a home soon. I like dogs but I like humans more.

 

Maren from Germany was looking after me until Marcus and Eva saved my life and took me to Germany. Thank you very much.

MULLE (female)

 

The nice volunteers from the shelter did an inspection of all the animals at the temple at which I stayed. They decided that it was not safe for me to stay there as the dogs were constantly chasing me and trying to eat me. As a result, I was brought to the shelter and given an operation to stop me having babies. Brigitte says I can stay here as long as I want. It's up to me. I think I'll stay here for a while.

 

I ran away, I do not need a sponsor anymore!

MORTEN (male)

 

I was living at a temple in the south of Samui when Brigitte came on an inspection tour. She gathered together around six dogs and cats and brought us back to the shelter for some sort of special operation to stop us having or fathering babies. I got that treatment! I wasn’t very well after that operation and, after a couple of weeks recuperation, Brigitte decided she couldn’t part with me (I’m such a loveable cat) so here I stay. I like it here and I make sure I say hello to all the visitors when they come to visit me and my fellow cats.

 

Janne from Norway is now looking after me. Thank you very much.

PIA (female)

 

I was brought into the shelter by some nice Thai people who had found me in a sewer. I had been stuck there for days and they couldn’t work out where my mewing came from. Eventually, they managed to track me down and pull me out. Goodness, did I stink or what? Even I couldn’t stand the smell of me! Tina, one of the volunteers, donned a clothes peg on her nose and some gloves and she washed the pooh pooh off me and I am now clean and non-smelly.

 

Great news: I found a new home on Koh Samui!

While I was living at the DRCS, Hildegard from Walde in Switzerland was looking after me. Thank you very much.

 
GURU (männlich)


An den Nachmittagen ging ich immer zu Ringstrasse außerhalb Meanam spazieren. Ich beobachtete die vorbei fahrenden Autos und Motorräder und hoffte, dass sie etwas Essen zu mir rüber werfen würden. Manchmal hatte ich Glück. Anscheinend sah ich so schrecklich aus, dass tierliebe Leute sich mit DRCS in Verbindung setzten. Irgendwie eines Tages hielt ein Auto an. Es hatte einen fremden Hunde-Geruch. Ich glaubte nicht, dass Situation und meine Entfernung behielt. Die Thai stellten mir eine Schüssel mit großartig riechendem Dosenfutter hin, und verschwanden in ihrem Auto. Ich schlang das Futter hinunter. Ich weiß auch nicht was dann geschah, aber wurde etwas schwindelig und ich sorgte mich nicht mehr darüber, was mit mir passierte. Die Thai kamen aus ihrem Auto und steckten mich in einen Käfig. Ich wurde mit zu DRCS genommen und meinen verschiedenen Krankheiten wurden behandelt. Ich litt unter Unterernährung, hatte schlimme Räude und TVT, eine sehr erste Geschwulst-Krankheit. Die Geschwulst-Krankheit hat mich für lange Zeit belästigt. Ich blutete ständig aus meinem Penis, und er schmerzte. In mittlerweile fühle ich mich bestens. Ich habe mich wieder völlig erholt und lebe jetzt im Heiligtum in Bahn Taling Ngam.

 

After a while I found it to boring at the shelter and decided to run away.

While I was living at the DRCS Catherine from Canada was looking after me. Thank you very much!

SONJA (female)

 

Until recently I lived with four other fellow-sufferers - RUBY, MAYA, MICKY and MICHA - at a temple on Koh Samui. There, we had been fed by helpers from the DRCS every afternoon with dry food for some months. All of us had already been castrated and had had to suffer injections. Life really wasn't too bad near the temple and each day we were looking forward to being visited by the people from the DRCS. Of course there was always the risk that somebody would poison us because dogs are not really appreciated that much at temples. After the first bunch of dogs had been moved to the animal home in Baan Taling Ngam, it became clear that the DRCS helpers would not always have the time to take care of us every day at the temple. The temple is in the opposite direction of the new animal home. Therefore, we were taken to the new animal home and have settled down real quick. Here we get freshly prepared chicken broth with rice soaked in dry food every afternoon. That tastes really good!

 

Sonja didn't like it at the shelter anymore, so unfortunately she ran away.

During the time at the DRCS, Helga and Helmut from Weilheim in Germany were looking after her. Thank you very much !

MOT DAENG (male)

 

Mot Daeng was lucky: He found a new home in Koh Samui.

 

During the time at the DRCS, Claudio and Mon from Switzerland were looking after her. Thank you very much!

 
 
MOHRCHEN (male)

 

I came into the shelter because some tourists found me wandering around Chaweng on my own. I was about eight weeks old then and quite healthy. I came to live in Brigitte's house and I had another 17 kittens to play with. I was older than most of them so I led the way exploring the garden. That was fun. I'm so clever that I can steal mice away from the other big cats. Hurrah, I've found a home with a couple from Belgium who live on the island. They came for a kitten and left with me and four of my playmates (each a different colour). Although I liked it at Brigitte's house, the big cat-eating dogs were very nearby and were always barking. Now, I live with my four playmates in a fenced-off area where there are no dogs. Also, the food I get at my new joint is the soft cat food and not mixed with rice - ah bliss!

 

Great news: I found a new home on Koh Samui!

PARLO (male)

 

Parlo was found in the animal shelter in July 2009 when the team of the DRCS was taking new pictures of all the cats. He creeped in the rest of the group so that she almost hadn't been noticed. I suppose that actually he was brought to the animal shelter for being neutered but his owner didn't come and pick him up anymore. We took him to the cat house. He is very nice and cuddly.

 

Unfortunately Parlo ran away. We miss him very much.

During his time at the shelter, Peggy and Vanessa from Bielefeld in Germany were looking after him. Thank you very much.

BABS alias WINDLIN (female)

 

Hello, my new name is Babs. That is what I looked like when I arrived at the Dog Rescue Center in September 2009. I didn't have the heart to come out of the corner, I just hid there and didn't want to take food. Bärbel took me to another shelter to a pride of anxious dogs. She fed me by hand because I just didn't want to live anymore. But when the food was served in this manner I could eat in peace – now I'm of good cheer. They always prepare rice for me which I really like. I get many strokes and I play with my friends. Only now, that I made the grade to eat on my own and feel better, Günter named me Babs, and I have to say I kind of like it!


Babs found a new home. During her time at the shelter, Timo from Spesbach in Rheinland-Pfalz in Germany was looking after her.

GLORIA (female)

 

I was brought to the Center because I am blind and my owner didn't want me any more. At the Center, I got an operation to stop me having puppies and soon I will have an operation on one of my eyes. However, I will never be able to see again. I didn't like it at the Center at first because I didn't know my way around. However, I now have a map of the compound in my head so I can walk around OK. I like the food here because I'm given a special bowl all to myself. I like it when we get visitors as they come and speak to me and stroke my lovely, soft fur.

 

Nicole and Bruno from Kriens in Switzerland are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

Finally I got to know my sponsor Nicole personally.
ZAG (female)

 

Great news: I found a new home on Koh Samui!

 

While I was staying at the DRCS, Elke from Essen in Germany was looking after me. Thank you very much!

BIANCA (female)

 

I was found with a terrible fungus in a very expensive hotel. As you can see on the picture I was not very beautiful and therefore not welcome at the hotel. Brigitte took really good care of me and I recovered very fast. I was rubbed daily with a horrible tasting cream. After a while I stopped licking it from my fur. The care and the food here are just great and it was easy to recover. In the picture below you can see how wonderful I look now. I am sure the people in the hotel would like me back now, but I am not going back there on principle. Because of the way I look now, it was no problem to find a new home. The only problem was Brigitte who didn't want to let me go. Finally, she let me move.

 

I found a good new home with a very nice owner.

TATJANA (female)

 

Yes, that’s really me! That’s what I look like today! When I was brought to the DRCS, nobody could believe that I will make it. But I fighted from the start and I won. I was taken to the DRCS by some nice animals loving tourists. They found me helpless, almost starved and almost died at thirst under a bush at a hotel area. They fed me but set me back under that bush. I shouted and shouted but my mother didn’t come back. After a endless-seeming time the two people came back, took me and fed me again. I thought they will take me back under the bush and so I clamped myself very firmly. They put me into a box with a soft towel and because I was really tired and full of food I felt asleep. The next morning we drove to the DRCS to Chaweng. That’s where I am today and it couldn’t be better.

 

Ursula aus Bad Oldesloe in Deutschland will in Zukunft für mich sorgen. Vielen Dank!

TIANA (weiblich)

 

Together with Ellen, Gerold, Tamila and Raoul I came to the DRCS. Somebody put us into a box on the load area of one car in front of DRCS. Fortunately it didn’t rain that night. The whole night we screamed as loud as we could but nobody heard us. Till the box was closed very good and we were nearly six weeks we couldn’t do anything to it. In the morning they finally found us. We were so hungry! Brigitte was very happy, when she saw our little group in the box. At the first time Werner gave us some milk from the bottle. We all liked the DRCS very quickly. There was so much food and most of the big cats were very nice. The whole day was like eating, playing and sleeping. Then we met Lisa. Lisa a very special cat. She takes care for all baby cats very well. She lets us suck on her breast – that makes us calm. Additionally she always cleaned us very well and also showed us how to do that. Lisa reared a lot of baby cats. That’s why she is very popular with adult cats. We often had to have our’s work cut out to get a position at her breast. Because Lisa cared that good for us, we got very big and strong. We all live at the DRCS and we feel very good here.

After I got healthy again, I decided to take my life into my own paw and I ran away.

During my time at the shelter Ursula from Bad Oldesloe in Germany was looking after me. Thank you very much!

RAOUL(männlich)

 

Ich kam zusammen mit Ellen, Tiana, Tamila und Gerold ins DRCS. Man hatte uns in einen Pappkarton gesetzt und auf einem Auto des DRCS auf der Ladefläche nachts abgestellt. Zum Glück hat es in dieser Nacht nicht geregnet. Wir haben die ganze Nacht geschrieen was wir konnten, aber keiner hat uns gehört. Da der Karton dicht verschnürt war und wir gerade erst 6 Wochen alt waren, konnten wir nicht viel mehr machen. Morgens hat man uns dann endlich gefunden. Wir hatten großen Hunger! Brigitte war hoch entzückt, als sie unsere Gruppe in dem Karton sah. Am Anfang hat Werner uns immer noch zusätzlich Milch aus der Flasche gegeben. Wir haben uns im DRCS alle ganz schnell sehr wohl gefühlt. Es gab jede Menge zu essen und die meisten großen Katzen waren lieb zu uns. der ganze Tag bestand nur aus Essen, Schlafen und Spielen. Wir haben Lisa getroffen. Lisa (Patenhunde und Katzen 25) ist eine ganz besondere Katze. Sie kümmert sich um alle Babykatzen ganz hingebungsvoll. Sie lässt alle an ihrer Brust nuckeln - das beruhigt so schön. Außerdem hat sie uns immer sehr gründlich gewaschen und uns gezeigt, wie man das macht. Lisa hat schon sehr viele Babykatzen ohne Mutter groß gezogen. sie ist deshalb auch sehr beliebt bei längst erwachsenen Katzen. Da mussten wir uns oft ganz schön ranhalten um einen Platz an ihrer Brust zu ergattern. Da wir so gut von Lisa gepflegt wurden, sind wir inzwischen alle groß und stark geworden. Wir leben alle noch im DRCS und fühlen und dort sehr wohl.

Unfortunately Raoul ran away. We miss him very much.

During my time at the shelter Catherine from Kanada was looking after me. Thank you very much!
