Vaccinations save lives
If you've seen a young puppy dying from Parvovirus or a dog fighting for its life with Distemper, you'll understand the importance of our annual vaccination program.
Puppy very sick with Parvovirus
A Rabid Dog
We're not only saving dogs' and puppies' lives, we're also protecting our local community against rabies which is still a threat in Thailand. In 2018 there was a nationwide outbreak when 100s of dogs were killed by the Livestock Dept. Our dogs were exempt as we could prove their vaccinations with our cards. Sadly many weren't saved as there was no evidence.
Over 200 dogs and puppies We launched this year's vaccination program in early April 2022 with the vaccination of 40 dogs in the temple where we've been working for the past 14 years.
These dogs are the tip of our 'iceberg! We need to vaccinate some 200 temple and street dogs and puppies as well as our own Healing Centre dogs and pups.
They are all extremely vulnerable animals as they live in packs of some 10 - 20 dogs and puppies are often weak from lack of food.
The viruses are highly contagious infecting vulnerable groups within days. What's worse, they stay in the ground for a year waiting to be picked up by an unsuspecting puppy or dog.
Please help us help the vulnerable If we are to meet this year's challenge of vaccinating 200 dogs and puppies we need your support. By making a small donation you will be contributing to the safety of these animals and helping to eliminate rabies in our area.
Tiny Puppies Born in the Wild
A pack of 25 combine and rabies vaccination doses costs over 3000 baht, $90.00 or 82.00 euros. We need 8 packs to vaccinate every dog in our program. That's 24,000 baht $712.00 or 660 euros which are well in excess of our budget. Please donate any amount you can.
