Dear Samui Times,
Thank you for your recent article informing us that the Soi Dog Foundation from Phuket were coming to Samui with the plan to spend a considerable amount of time here going around the island sterilizing up to 80% of the stray dog population.
Our entire family are dog lovers and we cannot ignore stray dogs who are desperately hungry so consequently we have been feeding 4 puppies, one male and 3 bitches, who are permanently camped outside our front gate. Recently we have been concerned that these puppies are fast becoming adult dogs and very soon will have puppies of their own. With 3 bitches that could equate to a minimum of 21 puppies in just several months’ time. We have tried unsuccessfully to find homes for them and as we already have 5 dogs we are unable to take them in.
Recently the Soi Dog Foundation team turned up one morning at our estate where there are up to 30 dogs roaming around. Within a couple of hours they managed to round up most of them, some were caught willingly while others had to be tranquilized. Later in the evening all the dogs were returned with a yellow collar signalizing that they had been neutered.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Soi Dog Foundation and its generous sponsors for the work that they are doing. Especially for travelling all the way to Samui and spending such time here in helping to control the dog population and saving so many dogs from future misery. I would urge fellow readers to help support both the Samui Dog Rescue and the Soi Dog Foundation for the selfless work that they do in helping to control the dog population and the homeless strays. Without their efforts life for us and our canine friends would be a living hell.
