12 Days of Jai: Feelgood gifting this Christmas
December 2, 2022
Christmas is a time for giving and spending time with your nearest and dearest. But it’s also a time to remember those most in need, and with less than ourselves.
With 85 dogs living and spreading cheer on “The Farm” year round, it’s our duty to maintain their happy, carefree disposition. Although our Farm residents don’t have a home to call their own, they too deserve to be spoiled this Christmas. That’s where you come in!
We’ve pulled together 12 easy (and some even free!) ways you can help support our Jai Dog’s this festive season…
1. Marleybones: Treat your dog, feed a stray
Marleybones & Jai Dog Rescue have one crucial thing in common: we love dogs! Yours, ours, and – most importantly – those without a home of their own.
That’s why we’re teaming up with them to bring you a very special discount, all while helping the street dogs of Thailand:
- For you: 50% off your first box of Marleybones
- For us: a £20 donation to Jai Dogs in need!
- Discount code: JAIDOGRESCUE
In addition, £1 from all purchases of Marleybones delicious Turkey & Cranberry festive treat bags will also be donated to Jai, so there’s even more reason (…like you need one) to give your dog an extra treat this Christmas!
2. Haute Dogs x Jai 2023 Calendar
If you haven’t got your Jai Dog calendar already, why not?!
This year we were privileged to be chosen as Haute Dogs charity partner with a twist: every Jai Dog featured in the calendar is available for adoption (…4 have since bagged themselves a home, woohoo!)
Calendars will be on sale for a very limited time until stocks last so don’t miss out, they make great stocking fillers and will have your loved ones smiling through each new month in 2023!
3. Haute Dogs x Jai Greeting Cards
Every single one of the amazing dogs featured in these beautiful greeting cards were rescued from the streets by Jai Dog Rescue.
Spread the love with one of our cards; showcasing our happy and healthy dogs, all whilst knowing that you are also supporting Jai’s mission through your purchase. Guilt-free shopping at it’s best!
4. AmazonSmile: Give while you shop
AmazonSmile is an incredibly simple way for you to support Jai Dog’s every time you shop, at no cost to you.
Simply activate AmazonSmile by going to smile.amazon.com on your web browser or through the Amazon Shopping app for iOS and Android phones.
Once turned on, search Jai Dog Rescue (charity no. 1172313) select us, and then you can begin shopping. In turn, AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to us at no cost to you!
5. Amazon Wishlist: Send Jai Dog's some joy
If you’d like to give our dogs a physical Christmas present, you can head to our Amazon Wishlist, personally curated by some very intelligent Jai Dogs (…with a little help from their shelter carers!)
6. Jai Dog Sweatshirts
Certified Fair Wear, Oeko-Tex, Vegan and GOTS: Our first ever ethical Jai Sweatshirts are available to order now and directly support our cause in transforming the lives of Thai street dogs like Kai Noi here!
7. Sponsor a Jai Dog
Sponsoring one of our resident rescue dogs this Christmas is a beautiful way of showing how much you care about the lives of less fortunate dogs. You can sponsor a dog for yourself, or why not gift a sponsorship to a dog-loving family member or friend?
Many of our residents will never be able to leave The Farm due to complex and lifelong medical needs or disability and your support allows us to continue our work to provide sanctuary for those who need it most.
8. Give a Virtual Gift
Like your dogs at home, our Jai dogs also receive regular care for all their routine needs: including food, tick and flea treatment and any medical attention & specialist care they may need during their stay. Supporting via our regular costs is a great way of giving back and supporting our dogs from afar.
Please be aware that these items will fund the purchase of shelter supplies for our dogs, and therefore you will not receive this item yourself. Upon purchase of this item, we’ll send you a digital certificate to say thank you for your generous gift.
9. Give the gift of Freedom: Support with the cost of a wheelchair
The Farm is home to a number of paralysed and disabled dogs: we believe that they deserve to enjoy the same access to play, freedom and exploration as every other resident. A wheelchair provides them with the opportunity to join in on pack walks and group activity sessions, and ensures that their life is not limited to the confines of a kennel.
In buying a wheelchair for a Jai Dog, you’re not only funding the purchase of a vital piece of specialist equipment, you’re gifting an injured animal with a new lease of life and we thank you for your generous gift!
If you already have a dog wheelchair at home which is no longer of use, we will happily accept any spare parts you may have so please do get in touch via [email protected] if you have any wheelchair parts you’d like to gift to a Jai dog.
10. Gift a donation in honour of a loved one
What do you buy for the animal lover who has everything…? The perfect present this holiday season is the gift of compassion.
A gifted donation in the name of a loved one is a fantastic way to support our Jai dogs and will give you both a warm, feel-good moment on Christmas Day!
You will receive a thank you note with the name of the recipient of the gift, along with what their donation will help support.
11. Set up a regular donation
We’re proud to say that 100% of your donations go straight to our rescue work on the ground, ensuring that every penny is spent on what matters most: transforming the lives of street dogs in need.
Everything we do comes from our deep desire to see an end to the suffering of street dogs in Thailand: rescuing sick and injured dogs; providing shelter and rehabilitation for abused or abandoned animals; conducting life-saving sterilisation & vaccination clinics; and finding loving new homes for rescued dogs.
We rely entirely on the generosity and support of donors like you. Please set up a regular donation today, make a difference to a dog’s life and ensure we can continue to help the street dogs of Thailand.
12. Share Jai's mission
In spite of the turbulence in our world, we’re always doing our best to end the seemingly continuous hardship facing Thai street dogs. We’re extremely grateful for the endless support of our wonderful community of dog lovers who share our mission on social media; none of this would be possible without you!
A completely free way to help us further our mission, please share our social channels with all your loved ones so we can show the world how deserving Thai dogs are.
