SAMIRA (female)

My owners brought me to the shelter when I lost my eye sight. I had this really strange disease and slowly became blind, it was horrible. They probably thought that the DRCS could help and I would be able to see again. Unfortunately this was not the case and so I stayed at the shelter and have learned to deal with it all. Nobody wants a blind dog though! Doesn't matter, I'm doing real good and know my way around now.

 

Lisa from the UK will now sponsor me. Thank you so much!

 

 

 

FATTY (female)

 

My name is Fatty, 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... :-)

 

Nevis from Monte Carasso is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

ILKA (female)

 

My name is Ilka 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...

 

Renate from Wolnzach in Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

TARA (female)

 

I was very badly injured when they dropped me at the Rescue Center. I was full of bites and had a infected paw which just didnt want to heal. They first kept me outside the house in Chaweng in a single box but thankfully they felt for me and let me in. I now live in the 2nd house in Chaweng and feel pretty good. I don`t really care much about the other dogs around here but the people are super cool. Of course my old owner never showed up again...

 

Katrin from Unterhaching in Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

NORA (female)

 

Unfortunately the first three months of my life were everything else but nice. I was locked up in a tiny little cage where I could hardly move and my so called owner kept kicking me. But even as a little puppy I had a strong voice and so I just kept on howling until one day a lovely neighbor came to rescue me. He took me in his strong arms and brought me to the Dog Rescue Center where I finally had some other little ones to play with. I didn't really like it in the big compound as the bigger dogs kept nipping me. That's why I can now stay in the big open kitchen area where we have plenty of space to fool around. My life has changed for the better and I have never felt more free than here at the shelter!

 

Anna from the Netherlands is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

ELLIE (female)

 

Celine and I were both dumped outside the shelter at the same time. We don't have the same mother but come from the same little village where they have a lot of stray dogs and got rid of many little ones recently. Many of them just disappeared and for some strange reason we two were simply abandoned. Thankfully the Dog Rescue-TempelTeam is now working in this very village, getting all the dogs vaccinated and eventually sterilized, which is great. Thanks to them the village people have changed their attitude towards all the dogs too and are a lot nicer now. We are doing well here and still hope that we get adopted one day...

 

Daniela from Bern in Switzerland is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

OREO (male)

 

I was brought for castration to the DRCS by my owner. After one week the manager called my owner and had to learn that he didn't want me anymore. The manager explained to him that it costs 50 cent a day to take care of me in the shelter. But my owner did not want to pay a cent. He said that he would bring me to the temple if the DRCS was not willing to take care of me. Luckily, Brigitte thought that I was not strong enough to live at the temple and I could stay in the shelter. I have wonderfully long fur (not very suitable for a tropical island), and since this requires constant care I would have been chased away from the temple after some time. The Thais only like dogs that look healthy and have nice fur. But who is supposed to brush my hair at the temple? Nevertheless, I can stay at the DRCS and Brigitte hopes that she'll find a new owner for me on the island. I am a very nice dog and cannot understand why my owner didn't want me anymore.

 

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

While I was living at the shelter, Michaela from Göppingen in Germany was looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

SAMSUNG (female)

 

I was found outside the shelter, tied to the gate. Thankfully the DRCS-people got me fresh water and some food when they arrived in the morning. I was deWormed and vaccinated and welcomed into the DRCS-family. I’m not exactly happy to be here but will give my best to settle in. Nobody knows where I came from so no chance of a return. I can only hope that I am actually allowed to stay here now and that nobody will ever tie me to a strange new place again.

Tamara from Luxemburg is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

NEMO (male)

I have been unregistered at the Dog Rescue for almost one year now! I came as a little puppy and when they registered all the new dogs after they got neutered, the office-people overlooked me for some reason. I am happy that finally I’ve become an official DRCS-dog and hopefully someone will sponsor me too. Apart from a little mange I’m doing great!

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

During my time at the shelter, Sylvia from Germany was looking after me.

Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

 

ENJA (female)

 

We are three sister, Pisa, Macy 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!

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

 

 

 

SURI (female)

I used to live at the market in Chaweng and never had to be hungry. I know exactly how to smile at people…it works every time and so I was fed well by all the market people. Unfortunately more and more dogs moved to the market and at some point it was time for a few dogs to ‘be removed’. Thankfully the DRCS took me in! I got spayed and live now outside Brigitte and Werners’ house. I’m doing well!

Giovanni from Pfaffnau in Switzerland 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 Giovanni looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

JODIE (male)

 

I was brought to the DRCS when I was a little tiny kitten. Some tourists found me on the roadside and figured that my mum would not come back. They put me in a cage for four weeks and made me watch all the other cats running and playing around. Don’t think that I enjoyed that! But unfortunately there are so many dangerous viruses in Brigitte and Werners house and a lot of little kittens, so they all have to be vaccinated first and then stay isolated from the others for some time. This procedure has saved many lives already. When I was finally allowed to leave the cage, I showed my best side. And it worked! After I got spayed, I didn’t land up in the cat house at the big shelter, No, I was brought back to Brigitte and Werners house! I have a lovely soft fur and love to be snuggle.

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

 

 

 

ANITA SONG (female)

Rene and I are both really old doggies and used to live together at the same place. When they closed down ‘our little shop’ a huge construction site showed up from nowhere and there was no more space for us there.There were so many dogs already in this area and they all are really protective of their territory. Thankfully we can now live at the shelter and have hopefully a few nice and chilled years ahead..

Sue and Luke from England are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

BEA (female)

I was a very curious little puppy and loved going to the market, especially the meat department. I guess I stole one too many times and so it was no surprise when the horrible market-lady had enough and cut me with her knife…right in the face. I was rushed to the Dog Rescue and enjoyed intense care in the puppy house. I’m doing great now, have just been spayed and will soon move into a bigger compound with all my other young friends.

Helen and Dave from Australia are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ANJA (female)

At the moment I’m not in great shape and my sister Julie has the exact same problem: We are both weak, got really thin and are totally pale. The diagnose: Blood parasite! Thankfully Jay and Linda saw it in time and since we get these 3 colorful tablets morning and evening, we are slowly slowly getting better. We hope that we are soon fit enough to be spayed so we can also move into one of the bigger outside compounds.

Angela and Daniel from Switzerland are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

ROSALIE SONG (female)

 

Loki and I both came to the shelter because our lovely owner had to go to the main land for a couple of weeks. Like in so many other cases, he never came back again and we are still here. Thankfully we have settled in well and are doing good here. We still hope to be adopted one day and maybe until then find a sponsor who wants to take care of us....

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

 

 

 

 

MACKI (male)

 

At first I really didn't like to be at the DRCS. Even though there is a really nice big cat house at the shelter in Baan Taling Ngam and a lot of space to run around, I needed more of that human touch. Whenever Brigitte came to visit us at the shelter I would just sit on her and cry and cry and miau and miau...until she decided to take me to the house in Chaweng. Guess what: It worked! The first three days I didn't move away from the bed...it felt sooooo good! Now I mainly live in the kitchen and watch what's going on around me. What an amazing life!

Petra and Heinz from Germany are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

TAYLOR (female)

 

I was dropped in front of the Chaweng Shelter when I was still a little puppy. They looked after me and let me stay in Chaweng until I was old enough to be nutered and that's when I came to the big shelter in Baan Taling Ngam. Thankfully I got that 'business' behind me and live now in a lovely big compound together with other youngster. I especailly love all the sweeties and food leftovers we get from the hotels, something to look forward every day!

Juliane from Gilching in Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

BURMA (female)

 

I have suffered from mange since I was a little puppy. I looked so very ugly as a young teenager, no wonder nobody wanted adopt me. Today I look more or less normal and can only hope that it will stay like that. I heard that this mange-stuff can come back again and again. At the moment I feel quite pretty and who knows, perhaps one day I will find my own home. Until then I’m happy to have some fur and pretty cool playmates.

 

Nina and Daniel from Germany are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

HELGA (female)

 

I have never really been a peoples-cat and always preferred to mind my own business. I have no idea why I landed up at the shelter but after being here for several months, I have to say that this place has changed me for the better. I have opened up to people and have become quite good with other cats too. It’s still difficult for me to have someone touching me but I’m getting better and better. I’m making sure I’ll get plenty of training.

Good news: I found a new home on Samui.

While I was living in the shelter, Fiona from Zambia in Africa was looking after me. Thank you very much.

 

 

 

MORIO (male)

 

Me and my kitten-friends were all chased into a corner, thrown into a box and dropped at the DRCS. There were many cat families where we used to stay - too many I guess and the owners of the Bungalows wanted to get rid of us. He didn't get us all and thankfully stopped after filling up two bags with us kittens. It all doesnt matter now, we are happy at the DRCS and perhaps we will find a new family one day....

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

While I was living at the shelter, Ulrike from Magdeburg Germany was looking after me. Thank you very much.

SAAI (male)

 

I was found close to a very expensive hotel. The manager had given the order to chase away all the dogs that were living around that place. I wouldn't let them chase me away; therefore, I was caught and brought to the DRCS. The expensive hotels do not like to have dogs around. If I wouldn't have been admitted to the DRCS the manager would have found other methods to “chase me away”. In Thailand you can buy very effective poison in almost every supermarket and the “dog problem” can be solved over the night.

 

After some time at the shelter, I decided to live my life on my own four paws again.

During my time at the shelter, Mareike from Germany was looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

SYLVESTA (female)

 

I have been at the shelter for many years and absolutely love it here. We have a huge area to hang around in and the DRCS-people even built us our own house. The food is super delicous and the other cats are quite alright too. I always keep an eye on the very young ones, making sure they find their place inwith all those cats too.

After some time at the shelter I got bored and decided to take my life in my own paws again and ran away.

While I was living at the shelter, Petra and Heinz from Munich in Germany were looking after me. Thank you very much.

 

 

BETULA (female)

 

I have just arrived at the Rescue Center and finding it very hard to get used to the idea of staying here. I miss my freedom and can't handle all these cats around me. I wonder if they all felt the same way when they first arrived..... I will give my best to settle in and hopefully be happy again soon.

 

Rosemary from South Yarra in Australia is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

BOUMI (female)

 

I was living up at Moon Hut Bungalows, Maenam, but all the dogs were attacking me as I wasn't very pretty. This is the second time I've had mange. I was brought down to the Shelter in the arms of one of the volunteers as there wasn't room anywhere else in the car for me (there was loads of cats and dogs being transported home after their holiday at the shelter). Because of my skin condition, I deposited lots of dead skin on to the volunteer and she itched for hours after that. I was really shy when I came into the compound and feared that the dogs there too wouldn't like me. However, they don't bother me. I'm given a special bowl of food every day just for me as I'm too shy to push the other dogs aside from the bigger bowls. Brigitte says that in two months I will be beautiful again.

 

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

While I was living at the shelter, Charles from Holland was looking after me. Thank you very much.

 

LALI (female)

 

I only planned a short stay at the shelter but things turned out very different and for unknown reasons I am still here. All in all it's actually quite cool here and I love the food and all my new mates. I have now become an official DRCS-dog and therefore looking for someone to support me.

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

While I was living at the shelter, Vanessa from the Switzerland was looking after me. Thank you very much!

ROSA (female)

 

My sister Chinai and I were dumped in a box outside the shelter. Brigitte brought us in and looked after us until my new owner visited, fell in love with us and took us home to Germany. What luck.
CHINAI (female)

 

My sister Rosa and I were dumped in a box outside the shelter. Brigitte brought us in and looked after us until my new owner visited, fell in love with us and took us home to Germany. What luck.
PEACHY (female)

 

A Thai shop owner brought me into the shelter because a big dog had bitten me and I had a large wound on my back (plus mange). The shop owner came back to see me twice but hasn't decided if he wants me yet as my mange hasn't cleared up yet. I hope it will as I would like to stay in a home.

 

Good news for me - I found a home on the island with a nice couple from Korea. They took me a Percy.

PERCY (male)

 

I was brought into the compound along with my sister (Dotti). Brigitte's neighbors had found us in the middle of the road and knew we would be looked after at the shelter. When we first came in we had mange and not a lot of hair. We were given a bath and vaccinations which we weren't too impressed by. However, all the mange has now gone and our fur has grown back. I play for hours with Dotti and the other puppies in the compound and, when I get tired, German (a big big dog) lets me sit with him. I hope I get a real home soon.

 

Good news for me - I found a home on the island with a nice couple from Korea. They took me a Peachy.

NORIS (male)

 

I don't really understand why, but for some reason my old owner never cared much about me. They got me as a little puppy and I remember having a lot of children around me. I guess I was a lovely fluffy puppy and as I grew older the kids lost interest in me. My owner never gave me water and my food I usually had to get out of the bins. Since nobody took care of me, my fur got worse with every passing day until I was so ugly that they decided to get rid of me. They dropped me outside the DRCS and I was put into one of the outside compounds. I really liked the fact that there was always enough food and the people from the DRCS are really nice too. But somehow I couldn't get used to all the other dogs. There were mostly teenagers and far too wild for me. I didn't feel comfortable anymore, got depressed and stopped eating. That's when one of the lovely volunteers spoke to Brigitte and the next day I was brought to Brigitte and Werners house in Chaweng. I love it here and the other dogs are more my type! The food is so much better and I have a lot of people around me all day! Life's good and I have become a pretty fat but happy little dog!

 

Jill and her daughter Ellen from England are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

SAMY (male)

 

Nicole and Marco from Zurich in Switzerland are now looking after him. Thank you very much!
DASTY (male)

 

Honestly speaking, I don’t really feel like talking about my past. Ohh and have I mentioned, I sneaked myself into the DRCS! They only found out when they did the yearly check up and vaccinated all the cats. Of course I had no registration card! Thankfully nobody made a big deal out of it. They took my picture, got me a registration card and I can now legally continue to eat my Brekkies. I’m actually a very lovely cat and luckily I have found my own personal sponsor now….I’m so happy to spend my future in this posh cat house!

 

Thomas from Leimen in Germany is now looking after me. The sponsorship for me is a birthday present from Silke to her friend Thomas. Thank you very much!
