Belana, I lived on a small market in Chaweng and I was as skinny as you can get. I was also suffering from mange and diarrhoea.
One day after my arrival at the DRCS, somebody abandoned puppies there which were about 3 to 4 days old Although it was not easy, I adopted these 4 puppies as my own and I hope the little bit of milk I have will save their lives.
BELANA (female)

 

I lived on a small market in Chaweng and I was as skinny as you can get. I was also suffering from mange and diarrhoea. Animal friends from the DRCS managed to catch me and when I had somewhat recovered I was sterilized. Since I had had puppies not that long ago (all of them did), I still had some milk left. One day after my arrival at the DRCS, somebody abandoned puppies there which were about 3 to 4 days old Although it was not easy, I adopted these 4 puppies as my own and I hope the little bit of milk I have will save their lives. The puppies of course are also bottle fed but they do not like the bottle at all. Who wants to take care of me in the future?

TESCO(male)

 

Lisa and Nicil found me in front of the big supermarket Tesco Lotos. My mother didn't want me anymore. I am not sure why she abandoned me, perhaps because I'm a little smaller...who knows. I am now living at Brigitte and Werners place. Once I got both my vaccines, I will go to the puppy house and hopefully find an owner one day.

Debby, My owner came to visit Brigitte and explained  that, although he liked me, his neighbours didn't. They threatened to poison me if I continued to stay in the area.
DEBBY(female)

 

My owner came to visit Brigitte and explained that, although he liked me, his neighbours didn't. They threatened to poison me if I continued to stay in the area. I didn't understand what it was all about because my owner and I really loved each other. My owner had to leave me with Brigitte and I sat at the fence and howled for him. I howled and howled for many nights but still he didn't come back. Now I greet all the visitors at the house in the hope that one of them will take me home. I still live in hope of my owner coming back and some nights stand at the gate looking for him and howling softly.

Ariane, I am one of the dogs that sneaked in to the DRCS. After once more all the dogs were counted in compound no. 10, they found me.
ARIANE(female)

 

I am one of the dogs that sneaked in to the DRCS. After once more all the dogs were counted in compound no. 10, 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 femals 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.

 

Unfortunately Ariane passed away.

During her time at the shelter, Susanne from Vienna in Austria was looking after her. Thank you very much.

Miry, I never really had a home and so I was just wander around all day long.
MIRY (female) I used to live in Ban Thaling Ngam, not far from the DRCS shelter. I never really had a home and so I was just wander around all day long. The humans were always very nice to me but somehow I got tired of looking for food all the time. With my super dog nose, I could smell the Dog Center from far and so decided to go and check it out. Since I’m a pretty good looking female and also not spayed at the time, I was welcomed with open arms. The never-ending search for food finally came to an end. A few months later it turned out that I wasn’t registered at all. I believe the DRCS-people confused me with that other VERY SIMILAR good-looking female. I didn’t complain! I had the chance to run away several times but since I like it so much better at the shelter, I decided to stay here for good. I have made a lot of friends and wouldn’t want to miss them anymore.

 

Unfortunately Miry passed away.

During her time at the shelter, Gaby and Beat from Uerkheim in Switzerland were looking after her. Thank you very much. Gaby and Beat from Uerkheim in Switzerland are now looking after me. Thank you very much!

Heros, I don't like to fight but the others keep jumping on me, hence all the scars on my body.
The lady who feeds me (she has a stall in Nathon market) decided I'd had enough and she brought me to the shelter.
HEROS(male)

 

I kept on getting into scraps with the other dogs in Nathon. I don't like to fight but the others keep jumping on me, hence all the scars on my body. The lady who feeds me (she has a stall in Nathon market) decided I'd had enough and she brought me to the shelter.

 

Unfortunately Heros passed away.

Mimi, When I got older the monks decided that I should have an operation to keep me from having babies
MIMI (female) I was born near a temple in the west of the island. When I got older the monks decided that I should have an operation to keep me from having babies. The plan was to bring me back to the temple after the operation. But since there are so many cats and dogs living at the temple Brigitte decided that I should stay in the shelter. That's OK for me - there is enough food and water and I do not have ticks or fleas anymore.

 

Unfortunately Mimi passed away.

Kalahari, Unfortunately, the manager of the hotel does not like dogs very much and always tried to chase us dogs away.
KALAHARI (female)

 

I was brought to the DRCS by some animal loving tourists. They took care of me while they stayed on Koh Samui during their holidays. Unfortunately, the manager of the hotel does not like dogs very much and always tried to chase us dogs away. When the tourists had to go home they did not want to leave me with that cruel manager so they brought me to the shelter. I like it here, since there is always plenty of food and water. On top of that, nobody tries to chase me away. Only me and my doggie friends chase each other around when we are playing.

Unfortunately Kalahari passed away.

Max did not like us too much. But he could not do much against us, since we are young and dynamic and he is old and fat.
BOBBIN (female)

Me and my friend Roger were hanging around at the large open space in front of the house in Chaweng. We already had befriended Princess and Max (sponsor dogs 9), well, Max did not like us too much. But he could not do much against us, since we are young and dynamic and he is old and fat. But he constantly stirred things up and therefore it was noticed that we had made our home in front of the gate. During the day many dogs are running around the large open space. But in the evening the neighbors take their dogs into the houses. We were standing around this open space and it was obvious that we did not belong to the neighboring houses. Therefore we were taken to Bahn Taling Ngam. We were neutered and are now living in the teenager kennel no. 10.

 

Unfortunately Bobbin passed away.

Shari, I wasnt able to eat anymore because I had a huge wound in my mouth and one tooth was festering
SHARI (female) When I was found at the cathouse I was weak and starved. An animal friend has taken me there. I wasnt able to eat anymore because I had a huge wound in my mouth and one tooth was festering. For a while they only gave me NUTRIUM - that's a delicious paste. Something like astronauts food. Even with a broken mouth you can swallow that stuff. I´ve been living at Brigitte and Werner's place for quite a while now and as I´m not the youngest anymore they know that I need lots of love and comfort so I dont have to go back to the big shelter. I´m still very slim and get vitamins on a daily bases. Of course I´m a super-snuggle and I will give my best to keep my place on that favorite-list.

 

Unfortunately Shari passed away.

During her time at the shelter, Petra from Austria was looking after her. Thank you very much.

Günni, Two tourists brought me here after they found me lying on the street not able to move my back legs. They were broken because I had been run over by a car a long time ago.
GÜNNI (male) I've lived at Brigitte's place for quite a few years now. Two tourists brought me here after they found me lying on the street not able to move my back legs. They were broken because I had been run over by a car a long time ago. Unfortunately, my bones didn't grow together in the right way and my back legs remained paralyzed. But no problem I just pull them behind me when I run around the yard. I am very good at this and am very fast indeed. I have learned to lift my bottom up so my back legs won't be hurt.

 

Unfortunately Günni passed away.

During his time at the shelter, Nicole and Simon from Schwarzach in Germany were looking after him. Thank you very much.

Unfortunately Speedy passed away.
SPEEDY (female)

 

Petra (my favourite volunteer) came one day to count all the dogs. We made a big game "catch me if you can" out of it. Petra ran across the shelter and tried to make a picture of every single dog. We all let her come very close and then ran away in different directions. We had great fun that day! After a couple of hours Petra's face became really red. After all, we let her make a picture of all of us and here I am. Nobody knows how I got here or when. But here I am and here I will stay. Except someone from the island wants to take me home.

Unfortunately Speedy passed away.

During her time at the shelter, Gabriela from Zürich in Switzerland was looking after her. Thank you very much.

At the time when I was brought to the DRCS, I was well advanced in pregnancy.
With all that good pampering, all of my children survived and they are very well and Brigitte found them real homes.
SÖCKCHEN (female)

 

At the time when I was brought to the DRCS, I was well advanced in pregnancy. I was brought there by Regina from Ahrensburg. She knew that dogs are poisoned at the hotel/bungalows where she found me. Pregnant dogs have little chance of survival at resort hotels on Koh Samui. Most of the time the animals are taken to a temple and have a very uncertain future. I went directly to the new animal shelter in Ban Taling Ngam. They had just finished the second enclosure for stray dogs. After three weeks my babies were born and we were very well cared for. Some volunteers built a wonderful large wooden box for me and my litter and it with towels. With all that good pampering, all of my children survived and they are very well and Brigitte found them real homes. My puppies are checked regularly by the DRCS.

Unfortunately Söckchen passed away.

During her time at the shelter, Regina from Ahrensburg in Germany was looking after her. Thank you very much.

Jagger was running around a market in Nathon creating lots and lots of trouble
I’d get all the other dogs into a froth and we would run round and round the market, knocking people and baskets of fruit over.
JAGGER(male)

 

I was running around a market in Nathon creating lots and lots of trouble. I’d get all the other dogs into a froth and we would run round and round the market, knocking people and baskets of fruit over. Eventually it became too much for No 1 Stallholder (she’s such a troublemaker) and she telephoned Brigitte at the rescue centre. The next day, Sakda and Don appeared with full dog-catching regalia and I gave them some run for their money! What a lark! Then they caught me. Bo hooo! I now live at the dog rescue and now have another set of dogs to get into a froth and we have lots of fun.

 

Unfortunately Jagger passed away.

During his time at the shelter, Sonja from Bad Friedrichshall in Germany was looking after him. Thank you very much.

Rehlein, I patrolled my own patch, making sure I got the first choice of the good food.
REHLEIN(female)

 

I was quite happy living on the streets at the Laem Din Market and I patrolled my own patch, making sure I got the first choice of the good food. Even though I'm small, I made sure that the market people were kept safe from the other stray dogs. Then a monster stray dog moved on to my patch and started throwing his weight around. He chased me and chased me and eventually bit me in the back of the neck. I tried to fight back but to no avail. So, one of the local people brought me up to the shelter and the nice people there made me better. Now, I live at the big shelter in Ban Taling Ngam in a kennel with another five dogs and life is OK. I get fed regularly and I can play with the dogs here and they are not too aggressive.

 

Unfortunately Rehlein passed away.

During her time at the shelter, Ursula from Switzerland was looking after her. Thank you very much.

Magic, She fell in love with me and I fell in love with her. She was going to take me back with her to Germany
MAGIC(male)

 

I befriended a German tourist when she was staying on Samui on holiday. She fell in love with me and I fell in love with her. She was going to take me back with her to Germany so brought me to Brigitte's house so I could be looked after before leaving Thailand. That was the last Brigitte and I ever heard from my new German friend. However, I'm quite glad in a way because I stay in the house with Brigitte and spend the day sleeping and playing with the other cats. I am very affectionate and I love Brigitte very much.

 

Unfortunately Magic passed away.
