About The Soi Dog Foundation
The story of Tai Chi, one dog, among literally thousands that people like you have helped tells the story of Soi Dog. Tai Chi was found lying in the gutter, severely malnourished and could not even stand. The first photo you see is of Tai Chi when he was first brought to the shelter. The second photo was taken a month later with his new, loving owner Ina.
Soi Dog Foundation is a not-for-profit, legally registered charitable organization in Thailand, the United States, Australia, France and Holland. Soi Dog helps the homeless, neglected and abused dogs and cats of Thailand. Our aim is to set an example for the Asian region on how to humanely reduce the number of unwanted dogs and cats through spaying and neutering, and to better the lives and living conditions of the stray dogs and feral cats of Asia.
De-sexing (Sterilization) has been proven to be the most effective way to help the animals. Soi Dog has has reached a milestone of over 33,000 dogs and cats sterilized! Totaling 33,637 dogs and cats as of July 2011.

Only 2 weeks ago my wife, Gill called me from the shelter in floods of tears in sheer frustration after a dog was brought to the shelter. This dog had been in this condition for weeks yet nobody called us until too late. One cannot imagine the pain he was suffering.
Siam – A Happy Ending
Many visitors to Thailand have their lives touched by the plight of the street dogs and cats here. Below is a poem written by Australian tourist Diana Thurbon about just another street dog, who came into her life during a short holiday here in Phuket this month.

Soi Dogs – The Movie
The Soi Dog Foundation (SDF) is pleased to announce the release of the full-length feature documentary Soi Dogs, produced by Environment Films. You may view a 3 minute trailer of the film above. The 66-minute documentary is far from the standard charity campaign film. Although it does give an insight into the day-to-day challenges of the foundation, it is also a human story, one that combines tragedy and compassion with humour and excitement. It is inspirational and involving throughout and is suitable for the entire family to watch.
A SURPRISE FOR HANAKO!…. Hanako’s making good progress, everyone (including Shiver) is in love with this tiny girl. She has the most sweetest nature & her determination to walk is amazing! Weekends are normally spent in the clinic, but there’s a surprise in store for Hanako!
Soi Dog takes in puppies like Hanako every week, which is why Shiver’s Puppy Care Club was started to help with the intensive care often required with these poor puppies. Please consider joining Shiver’s Club today so that more puppies like Hanako can be saved: http://www.soidog.org/en/puppy-care-club/ — with Gill Dalley and 11 others.
Please help secure the future for dogs like Shiver today…
You can make a huge difference for Shiver and the thousands of other animals Soi Dog cares for now and into the future by helping to make sure that their shelter is secure. The remaining shelter land must be purchased by October of this year or the future of Soi Dog is in serious trouble as much of the shelters critical care facilities are located there. Please take a moment to watch this video of Shiver telling his story…
A long time benefactor of Soi Dog has generously offered to match your donation dollar for dollar up to $66,000 (46,000 Euros). What this means is that your donation is doubled!
Given this offer and at this critical point in time please consider making as generous of a donation as you possibly can to allow us to keep our promise to all the dogs and cats Soi Dog cares for on Phuket.
The shelter land must be purchased by October of this year or dogs like Shiver will be without refuge. Many thanks to the generosity of our supporters across the world who are helping. The target is now in sight not just a distant dream. However an additional $30,500 must still be raised to meet the October deadline.
To help the dogs and cats through a donation each month…
Your donation is needed now to secure the future for the dogs and cats. A certificate of appreciation recognizing your gift will be sent to you. A donation of $25 or equivalent each month will secure one square meter of the shelter land every month! A one time donation of $75 will secure 3 square meters of the shelter land!
