A female had 9 puppies in a jungle area near us. We have been feeding the mother and puppies until a week ago when the mother was found drowned in a pond. We have now taken the puppies into the shelter and are caring for them. One has been adopted so far. They are a little less than 2 months old. Very unusual, but they are all male. We are trying hard to find them all a home.
This lady has been on our feeding route for a while. Last night we found her with this terrible wound to her hind leg. This looks to us like it could have been from a human attack, but can prove that. She has gone to the vet and had the leg sewed up but it is unclear whether she will have use of the leg when she heals. She is now at the shelter and to add to the situation she is now on heat. Please help us with the medical bills.

Every day at the shelter is spent trying to give the dogs a good life, which means doing many different things. Medical care for Milo, who can't use his hind legs. Trying to teach Gigi to walk again. Attention to Dada who is Milo and Gigi's mother and is blind. Treating Cookie's eye infection. Preparing food (and of course Fred guarding the food) and feeding 160+ dogs twice a day at the shelters and more on the street. This is all a lot of work and we cannot afford to pay for additional staff. If you are in the Pattaya area and would like to help out we really need volunteers. Coming for a few hours, even once a week, would be a huge help.
This young lady was taken out of a local tapioca field and spayed. People nearby said she has had one litter of puppies but they all died. She is quite small for a street dog and has settled right in at the shelter. She is very friendly and gets along well with the other dogs. We would love to find her a home. She is not much more than a year old from what we can tell.
These two dogs have been abandoned in an empty house with no one to care for them. We are feeding them but they both suffer from TVT. The cost of treatment will be about Baht 5,000, which we do not have. We cannot bring them into the shelter until they have been treated as we have no available isolation areas. Please help if you can. You can get the donation information at http://hopeforstrays.org/dog-rescue-donations/
The construction work on the additional kennel areas and the rain covering in front of the office is complete. We want to give a big thank you to Pat Lee of the Green Living Group for donating Baht 15,000 towards this work. The total cost came to Baht 42,000. We would really appreciate additional donations as we are running out of funds to provide the necessary services for the dogs due to the cost of the construction.
Today we had a visit from a group from KFC from countries from Russia, Eastern Europe down to Cyprus. They brought dog food, shampoo and rice. It always makes us happy to have visitors who are interested in what we are doing and they certainly enjoyed playing with the puppies. They were brought to us by the friendly folks at Anex Tour. Thank you all so much.
There are two ways to look at this scene.
a) The little monsters are tearing up my yard. Now I have to haul some dirt in to fill the hole.
b) It's just puppies being puppies and leaving me less grass to mow.
I normally go with b although there are days .....
Due to overcrowding we are being forced into more construction work. We are extending the roof in front of the office to give rain protection and shade for a number of dogs who live in the car park. We have also contracted to build another kennel area to relieve the crowding in our other buildings. The total cost will be about Baht 60,000 (US$1,900). We really cannot afford to do this but feel we must. We ask for your help by donating at paypal.me/HFSFoundation or by bank transfer at:

Someone dropped these three cute little male puppies in a bucket beside the road next to our house. Even put collars on them so we could guarantee that they were left by someone. We will, of course, take them in but we do not have the space or the money to care for all the dogs we have. We will get them checked out and find a place for them. Please help, we need it.
