How can I help street dogs in Thailand? Plus icon

The fastest and most effective way to make a difference is to give a donation. We’re reliant on the generosity of our supporters, and are grateful for whatever you can spare. However small or large, your donation really can transform the life of street dog in Thailand. 

We’re also grateful for the support of volunteers: from fundraisers to flight buddies to foster carers 

You can find out more about the different ways you can help here.

Where are you based? Plus icon

Jai Dog Rescue is verified as both a UK registered charity (#1172313) and a legally registered charity in Thailand: we are truly international, with a concrete link between our work on the ground in Thailand and our UK / overseas adoption service.  

Our shelter is based in the central Thai province of Nakhon Nayok, in the heart of rural Thailand. Here, we are able to provide aid and emergency rescue at the source, and have the opportunity to witness first-hand the problem on the ground. We work 365 days a year within the community to transform the lives of street dogs in Thailand. 

The majority of our fundraising and adoption operations services take place here in the UK. We’re blessed to have a dedicated community of UK supporters who recognise the plight of stray dogs in Thailand and have a genuine desire to help. 

What is Streetdog SOS / Bon Jardin? Plus icon

Jai Dog Rescue was previously registered under the name(s) Streetdog SOS (2019), and Bon Jardin (2017). Whilst there has been no change in our mission, governance or management, we rebranded the charity in 2021 to reflect our desire to focus on our mission and the work we do, rather than just the problem we face. 

Rest assured that our shelter, our work and our team remain unchanged. We remain utterly committed to our mission to transform the lives of street dogs in Thailand. We’re grateful for the continued support of our wonderful community of donors and supporters: thank you. 

How do I become a Jai Dog Rescue foster carer? Plus icon

To register your interest in becoming a foster carer for a Jai dog, you’ll need to fill in a Foster Form. This ensures we have all the information we need about you, your home and your lifestlye to hand, helping us to match you to the right foster. 

Once you’ve submitted a form, we’ll add you to our foster mailing list to ensure you receive any bulletins regarding dogs in need of foster care. This means you’ll be the first to hear of any new foster opportunities, which you’ll be welcome to apply for. 

How long does it take to adopt a dog from Thailand? Plus icon

Please read our COVID-19 update for more information on how the global pandemic is affecting adoption timeframes. We’re confident that timings will return to normal once international transport restrictions are eased. 

To the UK 

In ‘normal’ circumstances, we advise that the Jai Dog adoption process takes around 3 months from start to finish: 

There are a number of factors involved in readying your dog for travel and arranging their journey home, including completing all necessary pre-flight vet testing and paperwork. We will keep in touch with you throughout the process, and send you lots of photo and video updates so you can see how your dog is getting on while you wait. 

As soon as your dog’s transport has been booked, we’ll let you know and explain the collection process to you in detail. 


From within Thailand 

Once you’ve decided you’d like to adopt, we’ll carry out our standard Compatibility Check, after which you can collect your adopted dog whenever you’re ready. The entire process usually takes no longer than a couple of weeks. 

How much does it cost to adopt a Jai Dog? Plus icon

To the UK 

We are committed to giving as many Thai dogs the chance to live a happy life overseas as possible, and do our best to keep rehoming costs as low as we can in order to facilitate this. We do not charge anything for the dog themselves – the adoption fee covers all elements of the rehoming process, including: flights, vaccinations and medication, microchipping, and travel paperwork. 

Our UK adoption fee is: £975 


From within Thailand 

Adoptions within Thailand are free of charge. As we do not charge a fee for our dogs, the only costs will be your travel to come and collect your newly adopted dog. 

If you’re able to provide a donation in your new dog’s name to help contribute towards our rehoming work, we’re always very grateful for gifts of any size. 


To elsewhere overseas 

We don’t tend to adopt our dogs to countries outside of the UK or Thailand. However, if you have a prior relationship with the charity (for example, if you’ve visited the shelter or adopted one of our dogs already) it may be possible for us to arrange to fly one of our dogs to you. Costs will vary depending on the size of the dog, where it’s being flown to, and a few other factors: the total fee can be anywhere between $800 – $3000. Please get in touch with us via adopt@jaidogrescue.org for more information.
