A HIDDEN GEM
Jai Dog Rescue is located on the outskirts of the central province of Nakhon Nayok. Nestled in the beautiful foothills of Khao Yai National Park, our shelter sits within the lush fields of a working farm producing mango, rice and santon crops. We are blessed to have such stunning natural surroundings, allowing our rescue dogs a unique amount of freedom.
We invite you to take a look around the sanctuary we affectionately refer to as the Farm.
DESIGNED WITH HARMONY IN MIND
The vast expanse of the Farm ensures all our dogs have ample space to live in harmony. The space has been carefully designed not only to keep our dogs secure, but to allow for safe and sociable interaction.
We have a nuanced understanding of the dynamics within the Jai Dog community and group our dogs across smaller bases or “bubbles” to avoid tensions that can arise within larger groups. Giving our residents a reassuringly familiar place to come back to, relax and settle, prevents them from becoming unnecessarily stressed or agitated.
Throughout the day, our dogs can enjoy the freedom to roam and play as they wish. Whether they’re seeking out their favourite spot in the shade, or enjoying a game of rough-and-tumble, there’s space for everyone to while away the hours.
THE POWER OF PLAY
Play time is an important part of daily life on the Farm. Our custom-built dog park, complete with sandpits, tyres, A-frames and tunnels, is the perfect place for dogs to run and let off steam.
We believe enrichment and stimulation are essential to keeping our dogs happy and healthy. Play helps to teach healthy social habits with both dogs and humans.
WALKING BACK TO HAPPINESS
Our days start with a group walk around the Farm, a chance for the dogs to stretch their legs after a good night’s sleep and take in the views.
For the younger dogs, walks take the form of “collar and lead practice” with the team, helping them to adjust for the new home lives that lie ahead of them.
We also make time each day to take our disabled residents out for a spin in their wheelchairs.
Most of the Jai Dog Rescue shelter team are based on-site, living in housing that has been cleverly designed around the dogs’ accommodation. This means there is someone on hand 24 hours a day.
Not only does this ensure safety, allowing us to respond rapidly, it also provides our dogs with round-the-clock companionship and social interaction. All our dogs are given regular attention and training from the team, preparing them for future homes.
COMFORT IN ROUTINE
We believe a relaxed dog is a happy dog. We give every dog in our care the consistency and comfort of a well-rounded daily routine. This helps them relax, safe in the knowledge that life is no longer a scramble for food and security on the streets, and sets our adoptable dogs up for the best possible start in new homes.
From regular walks and scheduled mealtimes to weekly rituals such as “shower day”, our dogs enjoy a balanced lifestyle that takes care of both their physical and mental wellbeing.
HELP KEEP OUR DOORS OPEN
We’re incredibly proud of the safe haven we’ve built, but there are still so many more dogs in need of the sanctuary we can provide.
Your donations allow us to keep our doors open for more street dogs still waiting for their chance at happiness.
