Dear Animal friends February 2015

Thankfully after our emergency outcry for financial support, the respond from all around the world was overwhelming and it looks like the Dog and Cat Rescue Samui Foundation can continue to operate as normal. Thank you to everyone who has supported us with their donation!

Thankfully we did not have to cut down on our neutering- program and we are still managing at least 6 operation/day. We are also still offering free medical treatment for all stray dogs and cats as well as for the animal owners who cannot afford to pay for the treatment.

The famous singer KieronGerbig has started a collection campaign on Facebook and due to the many Facebook-Friends he has, he managed to collect the amazing amount of 2,000 Euro for our Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation.

A HUGE THANK YOU to Kieron for his efforts to help the dogs and cats on Samui!

Another big THANK YOU to KhunSongphon for the donated 100kg chicken for our dogs and cats!

Beside our very serious financial problems due to the exchange rate of the EURO, we have some great news regarding animal rights in Thailand:

There is now an official law against animal cruelty! FINALLY the Thai government has set up a new law to protect the life of animals.

One can be sentenced to prison for up to

2 years or fined with a penalty up to 40,000 Baht

Let’s hope that next time some hotel manager plans to get rid of some stray animals, they will think twice before they poison the dogs or treat them with cruelty. The DRCS will definitely give it’s very best to find the guilty one and make them responsible for their action! Thankfully now supported by the law!

I’m sure for every foreigner here, the Thai prison would be an unforgettable experience…..

Thank you very much for all your help. We hope we can count on your continued support so that we can make even more progress in the future. We believe our efforts to make Koh Samui more animal-friendly have made it a happier and safer place for tourists, for which the tourists are grateful. Our four-legged friends are most grateful for your contribution!

Best Wishes
