PUI SONG (male)

 

Where I used to live they never really liked to have dogs around. One day they put some nice chicken with poison in front of me and I was stupid enough (or hungry enough) to eat it. That's how I landed at the DRCS. Thankfully I made it through this really tuff time and enjoy my life now here at the shelter. I am thankful to be alive and make the best out of every day....

Unfortunately Pui Song passed away. Our thoughts are with him.

BUDDY (female)

 

Thank you very much for everyone who gave me love and food on the beach during the last few weeks!

I was able to come into the Rescue Center for my last few weeks when i really needed help, THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!

 

 

SAMKA (female)

 

Originally I come from Hua Hin. Werner and Brigitte spotted me during a trip to Hua Hin and took me together with 3 other companions to Samui. They actually planed a simple visit to a friends place and wanted to relax on the beach. Well, they weren't really able to do that as they can't just look away when they see dogs or catsin need of help. Lucky us! I really like Koh Samui. Immediately I got myself a place on the terrace at Brigitte’s place. I have only three legs and my fur doesn’t look so pretty either. But in Hua Hin I learned to stand my ground. Dogs only fight over the best chilling-places over here. There is more than enough food for everyone. When I first I arrived in Samui, all I did for three days was eating and sleeping and eating, even dry food. You never know when you get your next meal…so I still thought in the back of my mind. In the afternoons they pick up Reis and other Food-leftovers from certain hotels. I can tell you: Some of that stuff is absolutely delicious!

ROMEO (male)

 

Since I never had a real home or anyone that could look after me, I don't have any place to go back to....even if I should get healthy and strong again one day. More or less all my life I have been on the search for food and a nice save place to settle. Unfortunately all the places I liked were already taken and I was constantly chased away either by other dogs or humans. When I got very weak and sick, I was brought to the DRCS by some lovely tourists that found me on the road. I am giving my best to get better and the people here are making sure that I don't loose the strength to live.

 

Unfortunately Romeo passed away. Our thoughts are with him.

BETTY (female)

 

Luckily, I cannot remember the accident. When I woke up, many people had gathered around me but nobody stroked me. My left back leg was completely smashed and since I was in shock I hardly felt any pain. Somebody must have had the idea that I could use some medical help and called the DRCS. After endless hours on the side of the road they came to get me. They gave me an injection and I suddenly got very tired. When I woke up again, my leg was gone. Even today, I can sometimes feel it, but this is not possible, is it? I have lived at the DRCS for a long time and you should see how fast I am on three legs. Some of the four legged friends cannot keep up with me.

 

Unfortunately Betty passed away. Our thoughts are with her.

GINA (female)

 

I was brought to the shelter when I was about 8 weeks old because I wandered aimlessly and helplessly on the streets. I am a very nice and beautiful dog, so it was easy to find a Thai woman who took me home. When I was about 4 months old this woman found a new boyfriend who didn't like me. As a result, the woman didn't like me anymore and I can call myself lucky that she brought me back to the DRCS and didn't put me somewhere on the streets. After a short while I settled in well again. There are 2 other dogs my age and we play all day long. Meanwhile, I have moved to the big shelter in Ban Taling Ngam and here also, the bowls are always filled up with food. I liked it better at Brigitte's house since there were more people visiting who cuddled me. However, the big shelter is better at rain since there is not enough dry space for everybody at the house.

 

Unfortunately Gina passed away. Our thoughts are with her.

During her time at the shelter, Diane and John from Trowbridge in England was looking after her. Thank you very much.

 

CHOY (female)

SILKA (female)

 

I live at the big shelter in Baan Taling Ngam and trying hard to make my peace with the fact that my owner is never going to come back and take me home. He promised me that I would only have to stay for a couple of weeks but now it's been months and I'm still here. Thankfully the volunteers took me out of the little 'look after' compound and so things have improved for me. I kind of like where I live now and honestly speaking I have already found a lot of new friends which I wouldn't want to miss anymore.

Unfortunately Silka passed away. Our thoughts are with her.

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

ANGIE (female)

 

My mother was a stray and, after she had me, a nice local Thai man decided it was time for her to be neutered. However, between that decision and him organizing it with Brigitte, Mummy was eaten by a monster of a dog. The nice Thai man decided that I must be saved so he brought me to Brigitte's house where I am now much loved. I took several days to settle in but Brigitte loved me from the start (it's my sexy blue eyes that did it).

Unfortunately Angie passed away. Our thoughts are with her.

During her time at the shelter, Patrik from Helsingborg in Sweden was looking after her. Thank you very much.

FÄNTA (female)


Silvan from Switzerland took me to DRCS when I was three months old. He urgently had to return to Switzerland. He had always promised me to take me to Switzerland. In the beginning it looked like he would keep his promise. He even begged for me in the streets of Zürich. Then I had not heard from him for a long time. I became very sick and it did not look good. I got very thick paws which were bleeding. But by the good care of DRCS, I completely recovered. Silvan contacted DRCS after about one year, but when he heard that I was very sick, he was no longer interested in me. He never called in again. The open area at DRCS is my home now. It is never boring here. Visitors come and bring treats. Since I am always in the first row, I also get petted by them.

 

Unfortunately Fänta passed away. Our thoughts are with her.

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

 

PORSCH (female)

 

Originally I should have only stayed at the shelter for a few weeks until my owner would pick me up and take me back home again. Unfortunately this never happened and I have given up waiting for him. I have made my peace with the fact that I will have to spend the rest of my life here at the shelter. Every day I feel a little better and have even made some friends.

Unfortunately Porsch passed away. Our thoughts are with her.

During her time at the shelter, Rachel, Michel & Lya from Schönried in Switzerland were looking after her. Thank you very much.

 

SETTLED (male)

 

Unfortunately I don’t have a very nice life ‚in freedom’ to look back on. Until today I do not really understand why the humans didn’t like me. Wherever I went, they chased me away!? Even after I got hit by a motorbike everyone still ignored me. One day some two really nice volunteers from the DRCS found me underneath a car and it looked like they were quite shocked by the way I look. I had a lot of open wounds and was quite mange. I was being a really tuff one to catch. After several hours they finally managed to get me and brought me to the DRCS. Until today I cant really trust any human being and prefer not to be touched. However I love it here at the shelter and it’s definitely so much better than out there. I never want to go back there! I love my other doggie friends and often snuggle up with them. Ohh and the food is absolutely fabulous!

Unfortunately Settled passed away. Our thoughts are with him.

During his time at the shelter, Pia from Sweden was looking after him. Thank you very much.

 

MOSES (male)

I can still remember my first day at the DRCS, it was just scary! So many cats in one place, some cats were penned in cages and then all the dogs just outside the door - it was awful. I just closed my eyes and thought of something beautiful ( .. chasing a mouse ...hmmm). The fear, however, then declined quite quickly and I understand that the people here only want to help. Now I have settled quite well and I get on with other cats alright.

OLLI (male)

 

I remember being a very nice looking little puppy. I got my own family, a great little bed and all seemed just fine. Unfortunately I got very sick, had problems with my eyes, lost my teeth and started to look more like a little monster than a pretty Shih Tzu My family decided to get me some help and brought me to the DRCS. I believe they just didn’t want me anymore. My teeth will never look normal again and my family will probably never come to pick me up either. So I decided to get settled here and enjoy what I got! Food, many people around me and sometimes even some fun with the other dogs… Great!

Unfortunately Olli passed away. Our thoughts are with him.

During his time at the shelter, Bianca and Mike from Australia were looking after him. Thank you very much.

 

FLEA BAG(male)

 

The volunteers Jay and Tom found me on a side road, totally starved and with just enough energy left to stand on my four paws. They picked me up and took me to the shelter, where they first got rid of the thousands of fleas I had all over my body. Apparently I have blood parasites. Whatever that is, I'm kind of glad to know that there is a reason why I feel so sick. However, I feel better with each day and look forward to the day I turn into a strong healthy dog again.

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.

 

Unfortunately Gloria passed away. Our thoughts are with her.

During her time at the shelter, Nicole and Bruna from Kriens in Switzerland were looking after her. Thank you very much.

PLUTO (male), Temple: Wat Samut Tararam

 

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.

TERENCE (male)

 

My owner brought me to the DRCS when he needed to go to Bangkok for a month. He paid the first month for me in advance. 20Baht a day (about 50 Cent) he had to pay so I could stay at the shelter. That all was about 6months ago. I´ve never heard from him since. The telephone number he left behind doesn't even exist and I´ve stopped waiting for him to come back. I really like it here and love fooling around with the other dogs.

Unfortunately Terence passed away. Our thoughts are with him.

During his time at the shelter, Diana from Aachen in Germany was looking after him. Thank you very much.

 

SPIDER (male)

 

I lived happily with my owner and his wife in Lamai. One day my owner died and I am very sad about that. Unfortunately, his Thai wife didn't show any interest in me after his death. Therefore, I was brought to the shelter in Ban Taling Ngam. At the beginning I was very sad because I had loved them both and wasn't used to the life at the shelter at all. But I was put in one of the nicest compounds where I found a lot of new play pals. Of course, I still hope to find a new nice owner.

Unfortunately Spider passed away. Our thoughts are with him.

FERRIS (male)

 

I share the fate of many cats at Brigitte's and Werner's house. As a tiny motherless kitten I was brought to the DRCS and I wouldn't have survived without help. Here are many cat mothers who care for us youngsters. Unfortunately, they do not have any milk, but sucking is soothing when you are very little. Meanwhile, I have become a big tomcat and since there are rumours that only very very nice cats come back to the house after neutering, I purr all day long. I sit on her lap and very importantly, I have never bitten her. The other cats do that occasionally and Brigitte does not react like a normal cat. Humans are weird. Small love bites are part of the game. I will of course keep on trying very hard not to bite and carry on purring because I like Brigitte very much. But it will not be easy for me since the red ones are not her favourite colours. The most important thing though, seems to be constant affection and regarding this I am definitely number 1.
