Soi Dog Merchandise

Supporters have been asking how they can buy Soi Dog merchandise for a long time. Posting anything from Thailand has always been a problem, just too many parcels go missing.

You can purchase "Trade of Shame" merchandise to help stop the dog meat trade.

Virtual Gifts

We also get lots of request to send us things like food, dog leads, cat beds etc. A nice gesture but the cost of sending them & the likelyhood they may get lost in the mail makes this impractical.. So we thought of "Virtual Gifts", you choose what you would like to buy the animals at the shelter & we do the rest...

What does Soi Dog do with the funds it raises?...
There are many challenges we face, our main one being controlling the number of stray dogs by spey & neutering. Soi Dog has carried out some 40,000 operations in the last 5 years. We also house animals that can no longer survive by themselves. We find homes for many of our animals, last year over 200 animals were re-homed the majority of them in Europe & US...

The illegal dog meat trade is high on our list of priorities. Every day over 1,000 dogs are inhumanely transported from Thailand to neighbouring countries where they are butchered by cruel and barbaric methods. However, the Soi Dog Foundation and the Thai government are actively working to end this appaling practice.

The conditions under which the dogs are transported and slaughtered are inhumane and many die from suffocation long before they reach neighbouring countries. In reality these are the lucky ones.

Those that are still alive are not humanely killed many are tortured often for hours before being skinned alive. The reason for this is that people believe that the pain inflicted leads to the tenderising of the meat. Most shocking of all, is that some dogs are still alive when their fur is removed.

However progress is being made. Soi Dog with other animal welfare groups have presented draft legislation to the Thai Parliament for strong animal welfare laws to be enacted.
