Helping people helping dogs
Jai Dog Rescue’s Unsung Heroes campaign has been created to provide 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 generosity of incredible local feeders and rescuers who work tirelessly to help the helpless.
We think these unsung heroes deserve recognition and support for their selfless actions.
Meet P Sumneung
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 of Thailand.
She has no assistance and is not paid for her incredible work: but still she gives all that she has. She places her dogs’ comfort and wellbeing over her own without question or complaint.
How your donation will help
With your help, we plan to thank P Sumneung for her work by rebuilding her shelter and living quarters, and providing ongoing rescue and veterinary support. What’s more, we want to provide lifelong support for P Sumneung and many other incredible unsung heroes like her.
Your donations will:
Rebuild makeshift shelters and structures. This will ensure that both rescuers and dogs can cohabit in safe, comfortable conditions.
Purchase vital medication, including flea, tick and worm treatment. This will be administered regularly to prevent the outbreak of sickness and disease within small, individual-run shelters.
Sterilise and vaccinate new arrivals. Our first priority when we support small shelters is to treat all dogs currently in their care to eliminate the risk of further breeding. Your donations will allow us to administer regular courses of vaccinations to ensure the dogs’ ongoing health, and to sterilise any new arrivals dumped at the shelter.
Provide urgent and specialist treatment for the sick and injured. Our community partners are usually the first to discover sick and injured dogs within the province. We want to ensure that they can call upon us for urgent rescue whenever the need arises: your donations will allow us to take in the sick and injured, nurse them back to health, and return them to their designated community care-giver when they’re well enough to assimilate back into the shelter environment.
