This place does so much good, to so many who need it and are so welcoming to any who want to help or share that experience. We first arrived and were directed to the cat enclosures to spend some time freely while we waited for the tour (free) to begin. After taking a tour of the facilities with Ian, who was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and given instructions by him during it, we were left to enter sections clearly marked as accessible and enjoy time with the many dogs who were only to happy for some company. Though the puppies are cute, and the young dogs entertaining, it was the older dogs I liked best. Some were missing their lower jaw (from attacks or fighting prior to life at the foundation), other were completely blind, with both eyes missing, but nonetheless were happy and affectionate. Obviously they receive both love and care here. At the end of our tour, donations for the foundation were requested, but it never felt like an obligation, and there was never any pressure. Obviously we donated anyway, as rarely have I seen an organisation that spends it so wisely and generously.
Such an awesome day at Soi Dog! It was nice hearing all the things happening there and all the great work they are doing. We even got play with the puppies, seniors and small dogs. It made my trip!
Excellent place. They neuter cats and dogs for free. Animal clinics charge 1'000 to 1'500 Baht .They deserve a good donation.
We visited the soi dog foundatoon during our vacation in Phuket. We really are impressed by the work they do. About 700 dogs and 300 cats where in their care when we visited. Want to learn more about them? Look then up or just visit them.
My husband and I went to Soi Dog. There was a tour and one of the members took us around. Later on, we were asked to explore the place on our own. We were given specific instructions on where to go and what to do. So my husband and I decided to spend some time with the Soi Cats because we love cats. I have never been to a room full of cats and at Soi Dog, I had an opportunity to do so. We were inside the room full of cats, sat there with them. We had a great time and returned to our home feeling good.
