ELLY (female)

 

I was brought in from one of the markets in Chaweng. One of the stallholders there was concerned about me and my lack of fur. I had mange - I didn't know that then but I did know that I was very itchy. I came to the shelter in Chaweng where Sakda and Daeng bathed me with special liquid and gave me some injections - I was very brave when I got the injections and didn't yelp at all. Gradually my hair has started to grow back so I was moved down to Ban Taling Ngam to make room at the smaller shelter for sick dogs. I'm living at the big shelter now and I like it. Unlike Tommy, I don't spend all my time eating as a girl has to watch her weight.

 

In the shelter it was too boring for me, so I ran away.

While I was in Ban Taling Ngam Karen from England took care of me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

KIMMI (female)

 

Me and my other black sister and brothers were found by tourists on the very busy beach road of Chaweng. A small carton that was standing on the side of the road had become our last shelter. We were about 6 weeks old and were able to eat on our own. But there was no one who wanted to take care of us. Moreover, there were some dogs in this area. For small cats, encounters with street dogs are usually fatal. Most dogs are cat killers! The Thai people in the stores around hadn't seen us before and didn't want to keep us. We have all grown up now and the shelter feels like home to us. Unless someone nice decides to adopt us, we will happily stay here forever.

 

Julia and Sergey from Moscow in Russia are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

NALA (female)

 

My name is Nala 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...

 

Anne from Finland is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

AVARI (female)

 

I've been at the Dog Rescue for more than a year  and have settled in pretty well now. I was still a very young cat when i first arrived here and I have to be honest, when I saw all those dogs and all the other cats I wanted to turn around and run as fast as I could. The first few days I was terrified but once i realized how things work here and that everyone is actually pretty cool, I excepted this place as my home.

 

Vicky and Heiko from Friedberg in Germany are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

 

SYDNEY (female)

Due to my very masculine shape, everyone thinks I’m a male dog. I also behave a little bit like the males, I like to be dominant and make it my responsibility to have everything and everyone around me under control. I’m actually really funny and the other dogs do not just respect but also really like me. I just got spayed and totally looking forward to being moved into the big compounds….it’s going to be so much fun!

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

 

 

 

MAMMA J. (female)

 

After I was shot by a man from the village I used to live, Linda from the DRCS picked me up and brought me as fast as she could to the shelter, where I was immediately operated. It was a hard and long way to recovery and it was pretty clear from the beginning, that they will have to take off one leg. No problem for me though, I made it through, I'm happy and love it here at the shelter. They let me free in the kitchen area and sometimes I go into the puppy house and snuggle with the little ones :-)

 

Jackie and her husband from Australia are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

DONNY (male)

 

Some animal friend from Europe saw me at the pier on the mainland and decided to do something to help me. I was trerribly thin and had harldy any hair left and in general I was pretty sick. She got in touch with the DRCS and then brought me over to Koh Samui, where the the people from the rescue Center started taking care of me. Today I'm a happy and healthy dog and love it here!

Good news: I found a new home on Samui.

While I was living in the shelter, Aaro from Finland was looking after me. Thank you very much.

 

 

TELLA (female)

 

I was one of almost 10 dogs that were forced to start a new life at the shelter of the Dog Rescue. We all lived at a construction side, where we had a great time while the building was going on. The workers loved and fed us and all was good. Then, when the fancy buildings were finished and the fancy managers moved in, the wanted to kill us. Don't want to think about it anymore, but we were saved and now live at the DRCS.

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

 

 

JACKY (female)

 

I knew from the very beginning when I arrived at the shelter, that I would either die here or spend the rest of my life in a compound. It was clear to me that I was not wanted anymore and anyway I was so sick that I would have died anyway without intense treatment. Jay and Linda kept me in the puppy house where I had my own room and the best care I could have wished for. Today I'm doing quite well, not completely healthy yet but I'm feeling real good and even play with the youngsters sometimes.

 

Nicola is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

AGNETHA (female)

 

When I was just a few days old, I was brought to the DRCS together with my 6 brothers and sister. The owners of my mother were not very nice people, they kept her in the smallest cage as soon as they found out that she was pregnant. It didn’t take long until my Mam got really sick and without immediate care, she would have died. Thankfully the owners eventually decided to bring her to the Rescue Center where she could have a peaceful birth. All went well and she was spayed shortly after. Me and my brothers and sisters will stay here at the Center and hope that one day someone will adopt us.

 

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, Jacqueline from Germany was looking after me. Thank you very much.

During my time at the shelter, Meredith from New Zeeland were looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

TIGERO (male), Temple: Wat Chaeng

 

We started the Temple Project in 2007 and it has proven to be a big success. Hundreds of dogs and cats in the temples around Samui have been treated without being removed from their familiar environment. No-one really could have predicted just how big this project would become, or how expensive, we currently deliver over 1000kgs of dry food a month, not to mention the costs of the medicines and vaccines we require to ensure everyone stays healthy. We (DRCS) are already suffering financially just to cover the everyday costs of running the shelter, so the additional money needed for the temple project is giving us cause for concern. You can help us keep this important project alive by sponsoring one of our many resident temple dogs. With your help, we can help, by keeping them healthy, happy and safe. With your help they won’t have to rummage the garbage for food or fear for their lives on the street, they can live within the safety of the temples and be checked and well provided for by our dedicated project team every week.

Birgitt from England is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

MILLER (male)

 

My sister Kiralee and I were living on the streets of Samui and were getting on quite alright. Most days we found just enough food to get passed but we both never really put any weight on and life got harder with every day. In the end we both got so thin that this lovely Thai man felt sorry for us and brought us to the DRCS. It turned out that we were full of worms. Thankfully these little buggers have gone now and so has the constant stomach age. We are both happy to have found a home here at the shelter.

After a while at the Shelter I decided to make my own way in life again and ran away.

During my time at the Shelter Anja from Hannover in Germany was looking after me. Thank you very much!

SEVILLA (female)

 

I am one of the dogs that sneaked in to the DRCS. After once more all the dogs were counted in compound no. 9, they found me. I was a "blind passenger". There are two dogs in this compound that look very similar to me. That's why I could run around there unseen. When the helpers found out that I didn't have a green tattoo yet, a big discussion started. At first, I couldn't understand why they made such a big fuss out of that green tattoo. Now I know. All females that have such a tattoo don't need to have babies anymore. Nevertheless, the tattoo seems to be an entrance ticket to the shelter. I now have one as well. Nobody could find out how I got there but I now have a card with picture. I am now a regular member of the shelter an am looking for a sponsor who assures that my bowl is always filled.

 

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

BELLA (female)

 

Ain´t I beautiful? Some tourists brought me with my mother Mandy and my brother and sister to Brigitte's house. My brother and my sister have found a new home already. Since my eyes are so wonderfully blue and I am so cute, Brigitte did not want to give me away. I am happy about that because I can stay with my mom and all the new friends I have made.

 

I am not looking for a sponsor anymore because I will soon fly to Gertraude in Germany together with Phajung. Cannot wait!

Until then, Gertraude is sponsoring me!

TOBI (male)

 

Some nasty Thai children thought it was really funny to throw me into the sea then repeat the process as soon as I swam ashore. A couple of tourists saved me from the awful children and took me to the local restaurant (The Wave Samui) and they brought me up to the shelter. I'm much happier here as there are no awful children to taunt me. I found a new owner on Samui.

 

While I was in the shelter Caroline from Switzerland was looking after me. Thank you very much!

OLLI (male)

 

I was brought to Brigitte's house when I was a little puppy. I had been strolling around the beach in front of the resort "Your Place". The owners there are actually nice Thai people but they unfortunately have two huge dogs already that wouldn't accept me in their pack. Moreover, I had the mange very badly and had to be treated. Mangy dogs are not welcome on the beach since we could ruin the vacation of many tourists. I have settled in very well in the shelter and have many pals my age to play with. Jenny and Magnus from Helsingborg in Sweden are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

I got lucky! A lovely couple from Germany has adopted me and I now live in their house on Samui.

HOLZANA (female)

 

I am actually a real temple dog! My big brother and I were born close to the temple in Lamai and the monks kept an eye on us. We did not know where our mum disappeared. As the head of the family, my brother was taking good care of me until we both started to loose weight and got weaker without knowing why. When the DRCS-Temple-Team showed up, we could tell from their faces that something was seriously wrong with us. First aid at the temple was not possible as we were told that we would need a lot of daily medicine for quite some time. And that’s how it was. We got a really nice room in the puppy house and were well looked after. With every passing day we felt a little better and to be honest, if you don’t feel well it’s easier to stay at the puppy house than at the temple. Not long ago the vet gave the O.K. for us to return to the temple. During the months we spent at the shelter, a lot has changed at the temple and many new dogs we've never seen before are now living there. We were scared and didn’t feel comfortable at all. We tried to make it clear to the volunteers that we want to go back to the puppy house. Life at the shelter is so much easier and my big brother can still keep an eye on me. I am very thankful that we were allowed to come back to the puppy house.

 

Hildegard from Walde in Switzerland is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

MAUSI SONG (female)

 

Ich kam ins Tierheim nach Chaweng nachdem ich von einem Hund am Schwanz erwischt worden bin. Er hat mir fast meinen schönen Schwanz rausgerissen als er nach mit schnappte. Ich konnte zum Glück entkommen, aber die Wunde entzündete sich stark und ich verkroch mich unter einem Marktstand und wollte sterben. Die Thais, denen der Stand gehörte zogen mich unter den Brettern vor und brachten mich ins DRCS. Dort wurde meine Wunde versorgt und der kleine Rest von meinem Schwanz musste komplett amputiert werden. Brigitte hat mich sofort in ihr Herz geschlossen und gab mir neuen Lebensmut. Als die riesige Wunde verheilt war, durfte ich zu den anderen Katzen im Haus. Ich kann seit dem "Unfall" leider nicht mehr den Kot halten und verliere ständig Ködel. Am Tage darf ich wie alle andern Katzen auch auf dem Bett liegen, aber nachts muss ich mit einigen Hunden im Badezimmer schlafen, weil ich ständig die Bettwäsche beschmutze. Inzwischen habe ich mich an mein Nachtlager gewöhnt. Es ist auch sehr luxuriös. Eigener Korb mit Überdachung, eigenen Katzentoilette, Futter, Wasser und alles ganz für mich alleine. Natürlich würde ich auch nachts gerne im Bett schlafen, aber das geht wohl nicht. Brigitte sagt, dass ich zufrieden sein kann, dass sie mich nicht ins Tierheim nach Bahn Taling Ngam gebracht. Nun gut, verstehen tue ich das zwar nicht ganz, aber ich bin gerne im Haus in Chaweng und nachts throne ich über den Hunden und habe eine ungestörte Nachtruhe. Nachdem meine Wunde vollkommen verheilt war konnte ich sogar auf Samui in ein neues Heim vermittelt werden. Ich bin auch ohne Schwanz wunderschön und dazu noch ein ganz großer Schmuser.

 

Während meiner Zeit im Tierheim hat Sabine für mich gesorgt.

Unfortunately Rani ran away. We miss her very much.

 

During her time at the shelter, Karin from Heidelberg in Germany was looking after her. Thank you very much!

RUDI ( male )

 

The manager of the Hotel Pinnacle Grand in Jomptien Falk Wetschat wanted to let us put to sleep because Juana has fed us. Please look on the homepage www.hotel-kosamui.com under “infos and news”and join the protestaction against the German manager Falk Wetschat! He wrote a letter to Juana that he will let put to sleep all dogs which are fed by tourists on the beach of the Pinnacle Grand. Thailand ist a Buddhist country where no dog gets put to sleep as long it can eat. No veterinarian would do that. Does he “put the dogs to sleep” himself? What does he mean with put to sleep? Poison? The protest did help. The manager got tranfered to the Pinnacle in Koh Samui. Manita, which was the manageress there befor, got transferred to Bangkok. Manita did poisen dogs at the Pinnacle, but it couldn´t get proven. Mr. Wetschat changed his mind towards dogs here on Koh Samui and helps us now. I believe him and think that animalfriends can make holiday in the Pinnacle, without getting disturbed by poisseningactions by whom ever done. Rudi also had found a home in Berlin. Unfornunately he ran away shortly befor the departure and didn´t come back yet. He is probably well, because he spend his time with us in the DRCS in front of the door. He often ran away for a few days and then came back. I think, he found himself a new home at Samui.

SANTIA (male)

 

I was picked up from the street and brought to the DRCS when I was still a little mangy teenager. Thanks to my young age (and my good looks), I was allowed into the puppy house. Even though I had to stay in isolation for the first two weeks and could only from far watch the others playing, I thought it was pretty cool to have all those other playmates around me. It didn’t take long for my fur to grow back and finally I didn’t feel like scratching myself all day long. I don’t know exactly what then went wrong with me. I felt a little dizzy and was brought to the vet. Unfortunately I cannot remember what happened after that. Back at the puppy house, I couldn’t stop shaking and until today I look like I’m constantly listening to some really crazy techno music. A lovely volunteer explained to me that I’ve got a really bad nervous disease. It is often difficult to get up the steps and I only wish I could control my shaking whilst eating my food as it tends to get a little messy. However I have to say that I’m loving it here and I have found so many friends which I wouldn’t want to miss anymore. Thanks to my nervous disease, I can stay in the puppy house as long as I wish.

 

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

FINNY (female)

 

My little sister and I were saved by two Finnish tourists. Without them we probably wouldn’t have survived. My sister was very very sick and I also didn’t feel too well. Unfortunately I was unable to help her and most of the time we were just sleeping in a quiet place behind an empty house with hardly any food to be found. Once we arrived at the DRCS shelter, they put us in a little box. I knew straight away that those people with the Team-T-shirt were only trying to help us. My sister was a little more suspicious though. They put her on a drip and I had to be real careful to not pull that thing out while snuggling up to her. Two weeks later we were already on the way to become healthy strong puppies and settled in well in the puppy house. Only recently I got to know that those two Finnish tourists planned to take us to Finland. Unfortunately nobody has ever heard from them again and we missed the chance to find an owner when we were still 2 young and pretty puppies. Last week my sister got lucky and I could watch her walking out of the DRCS-gate with her new family. I miss her but I am very happy for her and hopefully one day I will find my own family too. If not, not to worry. I love it here, made a lot of friends and can enjoy my teenager days here at the puppy house.

 

Roger from Schaffhausen in Switzerland is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

NELA (female)

 

Anne and Reto from Bussigny in Switzerland are now looking after me. Thank you very much!
