DODO (male)

 

I was taken to the DRCS by some animal friends after I had had been in a fight with another dog. They promised to pick me up again but I was quickly forgotten - they never came back. Since nobody knows exactly where I come from, I cannot go back to where I stayed before. I am not skinny and my coat is ok too. I am a peaceful dog and do not try to climb the ranks. The other dogs just leave me alone and, if they are looking for a fight, I simply walk away. I am a very devoted dog and would love to have a real owner but I suppose you cannot win them all, can you?
Although it is very crowded in the DRCS I like it there very much because the food is excellent and I made friends with some of the other dogs.
 

Bruno from Switzerland will take care of me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

 

TIGER (female)

Yuki and I were actually supposed to fly to Switzerland but our so called future owners have changed their minds and so we’re still sitting here at the Dog Rescue Center. We still have hope that we one day find our own family. At least we are together in the same compound and have learned to deal with the situation…

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

 

 

 

 

HECKI (male)

I'm a very proud and strong male dog! I dont't like many people and I really don't like motorbikes. That's why they had to remove me from the streets. I think I bit one too many times.... then it was simple: Either I get killed or the Dog Rescue takes me in and tried to handle me and my 'special' character. Thankfully they did! I'm still special und most times I can behave and love the people around here!

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

EMMA (female)

The past is not important anymore, only the future counts now. I am very happy here at the house of Brigitte and love the other dogs as well as the many visitors. I'm very happy that Franziska is now making sure that I can stay here.

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

JULIE (female)

At the moment I’m not in great shape and my sister Anja 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.

 

Marcus and Nursah from Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

HANNI (female)

We were three black young doggies and supposed to fly to Canada together. Unfortunately we were thrown into the shelter without being vaccinated first and so it was no big surprise that we got sick. One of us even passed on and now lives in heaven. Thankfully Nanni and I have recovered well and the shelter is now our new home…

Kay and Andy from the UK will now sponsor me. Thank you very much

 

 

RENE (male)

Anita Song 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..

Anne from Kauniainen, Finland will now sponsor me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

MAA (female)

 

Maa is a paralysed dog at the Plai Laem Temple. She was abandoned at the temple when she was only four weeks old and since raised by the monks. MAA was sleeping under a car when it happened. The driver didn’t realize that she was there and drove over her. Her backbone was broken and she can no longer move her back legs. The monks are very attached to MAA and decided to take care of her even though she’s paralysed. MAA is no longer able to control her bladder and intestine and it constantly has to be cleaned after her. Due to the fact that Monks only live from Charity, they asked us for help...and we will give our very best to help her as much as we can!

Michaela and Alex from Germany are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

JUMPI (female)

 

I grew up in the Chaweng area and thankfully some lovely tourist called in when I was only 6 months old and so the Dog Rescue came and vaccinated me. Once fully vaccinated I was sterilised and brought back to my place. Somehow I found it a little boring there and decided to walk back to the office in Chaweng. In the right moment I sneaked into the little house next to Brigitte and Werner and that's where I stay now. I can go in and out the way I want but i like it here and the food is super!

Reto from Kleinandelfingen in Switzerland is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

LOKI (female)

 

Rosalie Song and I both came to the shelter because our lovley 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....

During my time in the shelter, Andrea from Switzerland was looking after me. Thank you very much!

Martina found a nice new home in Germany for me.

 

 

JENNIE (female)

 

I had an owner but she moved to Bangkok and just abandoned me to wander around the streets. The neighbors didn't like me as I chased their cats so I was sent to the dog shelter. It's OK here as I get to play with the other dogs in my compound and the volunteers are always coming in to speak to us.

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

 

 

 

 

MANGY (female)

 

I have been wondering around on the streets of Samui since I can remember. Things went alright and I was quite happy with my life. This all changed when I got Demodetic mange, by far the most serious type of mange. My skin itches terribly and I have open wounds covering my body...and of course not much hair left. One day I happened to get away from the road and made my way down to the beach and landed up right in front of Jay and Lindas home. The girls have been working for the DRCS for many years... What are the odds!!? They immediately started the treatment and kept me at their house over night. Once at the DRCS, I got my own room in the puppy house where I have now started a pretty intense medical program. I am sure that I will soon look as pretty as most other dogs around here...

 

Alana from the USA is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

CHICAGO (male)

 

From the pack of 5 who were moved from the puppy house to a bigger compound, I was the only male. I realised very quickly what I had to do when I first entered the scary big compound: Head up, smile, look friendly and have them all checking me out. Some of the other males had the need to ‘tell me’ that I was the newcomer and that I better wouldn’t cost any trouble. All is good now and we get along fine.

 

Diana from Aachen in Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

SANDY (female)

 

I was living in the Samui mountains and grew up with many other stray puppies. None of us had ever been touched by a human and we always managed to find (or steal) our own food. One horrible day, the government started to put poison out on these hills in order to control the dog population on the hills. Many of us lost their lives that day. One of my doggie-friends Carlo and I were saved by a couple of volunteers from the DRCS who heard about this terrible happening. Took them a long time to catch us but eventually succeeded. Now Carlo and I live at the shelter and are still trying to get used to all the humans and the new environment.

Would you like to sponsor me? 

 

 

 

LEILA (female)

 

Because I was a very mangy puppy nobody wanted to adopt me. Now i'm almost old enough to be spayed and my fur has grown really nicely. Thankfully I can stay in the puppy house until after my operation and in that time I still got a chance to be adopted....

Michaela from Hamburg in Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

HANNAH (female)

 

Hannah found a new home.

 

During her time at the shelter Carey from Australia was looking after her. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

 

 

MIRA (female)

 

Lena, Archi and I came all on the same day to the shelter. We were of course unvaccinated and quite week. Thankfully we recovered fast and enjoyed the huge amount of delious food we received every day. Today we are over the hill and live in the house of Brigitte and Werner. Our hightlight of the day is the nightly fishparty...so much fun!!

Good news: I found a new home on Samui.

While I was living in the shelter, Elvira from Köln in Germany was looking after me. Thank you very much.

 

SISSY (female)

Me and my friends Micky, Mona and Pearl as well as my sister Frisco have spent the past few months growing up in the puppy house at the DRCS-shelter, where we’ve gad a great and pretty fun time. We all had to be on daily medication and have never really been 100% healthy. We have seen many dogs coming and going and even though we were happy for every puppy that was lucky enough to be adopted, it was hard not to be the chosen one. Now we are old enough to be spayed and will then be moved out of the puppy house into one of the outside compounds. We heard something about a special teenager compounds, that should be fun too.

Elvira from Köln in Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

 

 

 

ALEXA (female)

My sister Kora and I grew up close to a temple in Maenam. We were two happy little puppies and had great fun with all the tourists, the monks and the other dogs. At least once/week the temple Team from the DRCS Jay and Linda came to visit and gave us strange tablets and sometimes even an injection. Of course we hated that but knew why we had to go through all that. We were basically furless, naked! Unfortunately the medicine didn’t work and things got pretty bad. When our skin started to open, we had to be brought to the shelter since nobody could really give us daily medication. It’s pretty ok here and we see Jay and Linda a lot here, too. The mange is still a big issue and nobody knows, why we are not getting better. At least the medicine we get now helps with the itching.

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

 

PIRATO (male)

 

Pirato found a new home.

 

During his time at the shelter Anjanee from Bassendorf in Switzerland was looking after him. Thank you very much!

MAYA (female)

 

Until recently I lived with four other fellow-sufferers - RUBY, SONJA, 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!

 

Tee hee, I've found a real home. I now live in Germany in a house with a HUGE garden.

RUBY (female)

After a while, it was too boring for me in the shelter, so I ran away.

For the time I was living at the DRCS, Christine and Rafael from Augsburg in Germany took care of me. Thank you very much.

While I was living at the DRCS, Karin from Sweden who lives in France adopted me. Thank you very much!

LEK (male)

 

I was brought to DRCS by tourists since I had had an accident a while ago and my back legs were paralysed. But that doesn't stop me from making trouble and trying to be the alpha dog in the pack. Moreover, I am a really good watchdog; I am always one of the first to bark at the gate. In spite of my paralysed back legs, I am really fast and even manage to climb on to the terrace. I am really clever because I have learned to use my front legs in a way that my back legs are almost under no strain at all. I would like to see any dog do better!

 

Brigitte from Nuernberg in Germany is now looking after me. Thank you very much!

SCHNEEWITTCHEN (female)

 

I was brought to the shelter by a animal loving tourist. I was very skinny and my fur had become very thin. I had to take medicine for many weeks. Dr. Sid who had just started to work at the DRCS has a very special heart for animals. All the sick dogs were put on T-Shirts. I suffered from tick fever and had to take antibiotics and vitamins for a very long time. I was allowed to stay around the kitchen of the shelter in Ban Taling Ngam and felt pretty good there. Since I had to take my medicine daily and since Brigitte likes to have the very weak and sick dogs at her house, I was brought to Chaweng. There I have recovered completely in the meantime. I was sterilized and I am strong enough for the big shelter in Ban Taling Ngam. At the moment I am still playing and running around the yard in Chawang and I am always one of the first to greet visitors.

 

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

While I was living at the shelter, Sara from Saudi Arabia was looking after me. Thank you very much!

COLLINS (male)

 

Until today I cannot understand that my owner had tied my up at the gate of the big shelter at night and then disappeared. I am very affectionate and got along with other dogs as well. During the first days in the shelter I cried from time to time and hoped that my owner would change his mind and pick me up. I have been living at the shelter for over two months now and since nobody knows where I come from I cannot be brought back. Maybe I am lucky and find a new owner. When people visit the shelter I always try to make an impression.

 

Great news: Together with two pals from DRCS I found a new home. We are watchdogs on a shrimp farm in Nakhon Sri Thammarat now.

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

HELENA (female)

 

A few days ago, all cats were vaccinated and photographs were taken of all of us. And then it was recognized: Nobody knew my name or had an idea where I came from. I did not have an index card with my picture. Brigitte and the helpers speculated a lot where I might come from but nobody had an idea. Since I am wearing a collar, I must have had an owner. And because cats do not speak to humans, it will always be my little secret!

 

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, Lorraine and Marco from England were looking after me. Thank you very much.
