 We have about 350 dogs and 100 cats in our shelter.

Many of them are still looking for a sponsor!

We do not have all the dogs and cats still looking for a sponsor on the homepage.

Once there are not enough doggies to choose from, we will add some new ones.

The Sponsorshhip program is our only source of solid income and therefore we are especially grateful to animal friends who support us with a sponsorship.

If you wish to sponsor a dog or a cat, please look at the photos below and simply contact us via E-mail with the name of the dog.

Dogs still looking for a sponsor clearly ask: Would you like to sponsor me?

On the next pages you can find the dogs and cats who have already found sponsors.

Sponsor a dog or a cat

MEGHAN (female)


Lisa, Sarah, Belisa, myself and 3 more sibblings came to the Dog Rescue when we were only 3 weeks old. We were just dropped outside the gate in a little box and could hardly breath in there. We believe that our mama had an accident because she disappeard from one moment to the other and soon after that we landed up in that box. We were taken into the puppy house and got our own room for the first few weeks until we were fully vaccinated. The 3 other sibblings got adopted but unfortunately nobody wanted us. Now we are old enough to be sterilsed and soon after that we will move into one of the bigger compounds at the Rescue Centre. It is a bit of a scary thought to have to leave the puppy house but we were told that all will be fine and that there is plenty of space to run around.

DAMIEN (male)


Bongo and I used to live on the same lovely beach for many years and had an amazing time by the sea. We loved playing in the sand and sometimes we would sneak up on passing tourists and scare them a little. Of course we would never bite anybody but the manager of the new bungalow complex did not find our games very funny and threatened to kill us. Thankfully one of the residents on the beach got in touch with the Dog Rescue and explained the situation. We can now live here in Chaweng at the small shelter and since the gate is open almost all day long, we feel pretty free here. We both have settled in and are thankful to be here.

WALKER (male)


I was dropped at the Dog Rescue when I was still a very young teenager. The people who dumped me were very rude with me, probably because I didn't like to be touched anyway and they had to somehow catch me. It took Jay and Linda a long time to get my trust and to open up. That's probably the reason why I was allowed to stay in the puppy house for much longer then most other dogs. Today I'm a pretty happy young dog, still a bit shy with strangers but I'm having a good time here in the big compound. There are lots of other young dogs to play with and life is pretty alright now.

FREAKY MAMA (female)


I was dropped at the shelter when my puppies were just about 2 weeks old. I had 7 of them and was quite an aggressive mother. Of course I was in shock after we were all just dumped like this and did not trust any human being anymore. Some of my little ones didn't make it, some found a home. Today I still live in the puppy house at the big shelter and have learned to trust people again. I won't let just anyone touch me though but i'm a pretty friendly and funny doggie now.

PHIL (male)


I was taken to the shelter together with my sister Malika. We grew up in a workers camp. We also had a lot of fun on the construction site and had many friends. When the construction project was completed years later, we had to disappear. It took a while before we settled in at the shelter. We had no desire to befriend the other dogs. But then we became aware that we can not change the situation itself, so we changed our attitude and then everything became much easier. Meanwhile, we have settled in well and have found our fun here too.

FELIX (male)


My name is Felix and I'm still a very young doggie. I was living near a busy main road and always managed to somehow get enough food and water from all the little shops nearby. I was happy with how things were and was looking forward to becoming a big strong dog. Unfortunately my life completely changed in with a blink of an eye when I was hit by a car. I was immediately rushed to the Dog Rescue and the Team tried everything possible to make sure I could keep my front leg. Thankfully they succeeded and I still have all four legs. I still limp a little but I don't have any pain and have a good and happy life here at the shelter.

BONNY (female)


I'm Bonny and probably one of the happiest doggies you have ever seen. Even though I'm a little crippled I'm still loving my life and get around the place pretty well. I was chasing a little cat and run into the street without thinking or looking left or right. A motorbike hit me and never even stopped. I was laid in this little side road for several days until i felt fit enough to move again. A few weeks later I was finally picked up by some animal friends who brought me to the Dog Rescue Centre. Unfortunately it was a little too late and they could not properly fix my broken bones. But it doesn't matter now, I feel great and I really don't care that i look a little different than the other doggies.

FEE (female)


I had a very nice home with a big garden, a pool, two lovely adults and 3 kids, who took good care of me. I guess I will never know what exactly happened to the family. For some strange reason they just dumped me at the shelter and never came back. That was several years ago and I hardly think about my past anymore. I have come to terms with my fate and actually feel very comfortable here at the Dog Rescue. Sybille from Germany took good care of me and helped me to settle in. Thank you so much for all your love and attention.

BOOGIE (male)


My name is Boogie 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...

VERONA (female)


My sister Luna Lu and I came in together when we were only about 3 months old. We lived together in the Puppy House at the shelter until we were big enough to be moved into a bigger compound so we could run around a little more. Luna and 15 other dogs got a long great in that new compound but I never felt comfortable there and was constantly picked on by the other dogs. Thankfully Jay got me out of there and got me in a much nicer compound at the main shelter. Here it's all cool and I have found many new friends.

MANDY (female)


My owner has just abonded me. He brought me to the shelter and never came back. I guess it's because my eyes suddenly started to turn blue and I could not see much anymore. Unfortunately nobody could help me with this disease. It was very hard at the shelter at first but thankfully Brigitte decided to take me into her house and I love it here. Thank you Katja for visiting me!

Katja from Biel in Switzerland is now looking after me. Thank you very much!



MOPSI (male)

I have not been long at the Dog Rescue shelter but settled in well already. My owner didn't want me anymore and didn't really care much what was happening to me. I guess I got a little too old for them and on top of my agae i'm as good as blind. I'm lucky to be allowed to stay in Brigitte and Werners' house where it hardly feels like a real animal shelter even though there are a lot of other dogs and cats but they don't bother me at all. I'm here to stay...and relax.

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