สวัสดีครับ ผมชื่อบัดดี้

Hi, I’m Buddy

Sawadee krup! I’m Buddy, and I’m one of the older gents living here on The Farm.

It sometimes feels like I’ve been here forever because I’m so much a part of the Jai Dog family, but I had a very different life before I came to live at the shelter.

When I was a stray, I used to spend a lot of time hanging around the local temple. It’s a popular spot for street dogs: the monks are always very kind and there’s usually some food and shade. But because of this, competition and rivalry is fierce. For all too many dogs trying to survive life in a temple pack, it’s sink or swim.

Temple life

Sadly for me, I wasn’t cut out for “pack life” and I was attacked by a gang of dogs. There were quite a few of them, and I’m not much of a fighter, so they left me battered and bruised. I ended up escaping with my life, but I was heavily wounded and was losing a lot of blood.

Luckily, someone found me and sensibly called the Jai Dog Rescue team. They knew exactly what to do, and whisked me off to the vet who treated my wounds and bandaged me up really well.

This is me before the Jai Dog Rescue team took me away, hiding in a bathroom to escape my attackers and fighting for my life.

A second chance

Because of how severe my wounds were, I went back to The Farm, where I was given round the clock care. It was touch-and-go as to whether I’d pull through but, thanks to the kind man changing my dressings and keeping my fluids up, I fought off infection and made a full recovery.

I quickly made friends with the nice people who saved me: and they must have felt the same way as they called me Buddy! With time, I also got to know the dogs here on The Farm too, and have learned to play and a run with the others without feeling so fearful for my safety.

But the thing I love doing the most is snoozing in the sun after a good roll in the sand pit. There’s no better feeling than resting my bones safe in the knowledge that I have a calm and caring place to call home.

Am I your perfect match?


I might not be able to come and live with you, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be your perfect dog!

If you’d like to sponsor me, the lovely people at Jai Dog Rescue will send you regular updates and pictures to let you know how your generous support is helping me live my best life.

Why I need sponsoring

Whilst nothing will ever be as bad as those early injuries that brought me to The Farm, I’m an older boy with ongoing health issues. I have a hypoactive thyroid which can cause my skin to become very itchy and uncomfortable, but I know I can rely on the Jai Dog Rescue team to give me whatever I need to feel better again.

After many years on The Farm, I think the other dogs look up to me…you could say I’m the boss around here! I wouldn’t want to leave the team to look after all these young whipper-snappers on their own, they rely on me to help keep everyone in line after all. So I’m proud to call myself an integral part of the Jai Dog family, and I wouldn’t want that to change.

What your sponsorship will fund

Your sponsorship helps fund medication for me and the other dogs in need on The Farm, to make sure we can live a healthy and happy life here. I’m receiving hormone therapy treatment which has made me much more comfortable, meaning I can get back to snoozing in peace – thank you very much for helping me live my best life!

You’ll also be helping other temple dogs like me who are ousted from the pack. This is an incredibly distressing experience: not only does it lead to fighting and often life-threatening injuries, but once you’ve been rejected, it’s almost impossible to be accepted back into life at the temple. That’s why I’m so grateful for my Jai Dog family, where everyone is loved and welcome.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!

Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Jai Dog Rescue to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Jai Dog Rescue we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.


I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Jai Dog Rescue to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Jai Dog Rescue will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Jai Dog Rescue receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
