Details

Soi Dog Foundation (Soi Dog) was established in 2003 in Phuket, Thailand, to help the street dogs and cats who had no-one else to care for them. Over 70,000 strays roamed the island, with the numbers growing alarmingly due to a lack of spay and neuter programmes to control the population. Soi Dog was created to provide a humane and sustainable solution to managing the stray population and to address their medical needs.
Guests play a hugely important role in the socialisation of the animals in their care, in preparation of them becoming adoptable.
Equally as important is the fact that most of the dogs here love to walk and get some quality time out of the run environment they inhabit on a daily basis. And their 150+ resident cats also love the attention of visitors and guests alike. Enrichment for the animals is one of the key factors to their wellbeing and for dogs who spend most of their lives sharing a large run with up to 25 other dogs, the time they get outside of the run is so valuable to them.
