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.

In 2022, Jai Dog Rescue launched its Unsung Heroes campaign, created to provide long-term support for those who dedicate their lives to Thailand’s street dogs.

There are millions of stray dogs in rural Thailand, many rely solely on the incredible generosity of local feeders and rescuers who work tirelessly to help the helpless. 

We think these unsung heroes deserve recognition and support for their selfless actions.

As a nun of the Wat Tavor Nimit temple in Nakhon Nayok, P Sumneung has dedicated her life to the care of others. For the last 8 years she has run a makeshift dog shelter for some 200 dogs, transforming her own house into a safe space for vulnerable animals who would otherwise have perished on the streets. 

She has no assistance and is not paid for her work. She places her dogs’ comfort and wellbeing over her own without question or complaint. 

In 2022, we rebuilt P Sumneung’s shelter, rebuilding the shelter and living quarters which were in urgent need of repair. The deteriorated structures were treacherous, and the dogs’ kennelling no longer met their needs. We also believed that P Sumneung deserved a new, comfortable living space to call her own and her dogs now have a safe space to call home.

But the #UnsungHeroes campaign doesn’t end there: we have continued to provide P Sumneung with long-term support and access to medication and emergency veterinary care.

Neang is an inspiring individual who independently operates her own feeding route along the border of the Khao Yai National Park in rural Thailand.

Neang is 67 years old and has dedicated the last 29 years of her life to feeding vulnerable and starving street dogs in Nakhon Nayok.

Twice a day, she loads up her side car with homemade dog food and rice ready for drop offs. Her route spans 40km and she makes up to 12 drops, feeding up to 120 dogs per day.

Neang and her husband are retired and she relies on their pension to feed themselves and the dogs. Neang has been the sole carer for her husband for over 5 years and, unfortunately, he cannot physically help her. Her bike is gradually deteriorating and the side car is only just hanging on.

The dogs depend on Neang and, despite her many challenges, Neang soldiers on. Her commitment to street dogs is admirable but she desperately needs our help.

We have committed to raising £5,000, which will replace Neang’s bike and side car and provide long term support for the dogs she looks after through regular food, our emergency aid for rescue cases and vital tick, flea and worm preventative treatment. We also want to help promote and encourage more community involvement and compassion towards animals to ease Neang’s daily struggle and ensure her daily efforts are praised.

Running for the whole of March 2023, your donation will provide a vital lifeline to the 120 dogs Neang cares for: thank you!

We support local rescuers through both emergency appeals, such as rebuilding P Sumneung’s shelter & fundraising to replace Neang’s bike.

But we also want to provide lifelong support for the local community of rescuers and many other incredible unsung heroes like them.
