We would like to THANKS EVERYONE who has supported the paralysed dog MAA from the Temple WAT PLAI LAEM. We were overwhelmed with help and her temporary wheelchair (until the one from Mona in Germany arrives). Mona from Hamburg has ordered the wheelchair and take care for the transport to Thailand.

maa dog from the templeLinda from our Temple-Team has been there almost daily now and worked together with the caretaker of Maa. Maa has a lot of fun to try out the wheelchair.

Our Temple-Team will put together a lot more pictures as well as a detailed Update-Report of Maa and her progress at the temple, which will be in our next Newsletter in August.
While we were receiving your great donations for Maa, our Temple-Team had to face another real challenge at one of the other temples – the WAT PANG BUA in Chaweng. Some ‘supporters’ of this temple have a big problem with some of the dogs living with the monks there and have expressed plans of having them removed by the government.

Even the monks stood up for the dogs and asked us for help. Thankfully the guys who want the dogs away assured us that nothing will be done in the next 2 weeks but what’s then is still unclear. The monks came up with the idea of building a fence around the area in order to keep the dogs close to the monks and avoid further problems. If that’s what has to be done, we will of course use some of the money we received for the Temple-dog Maa and build a fence at the other temple in order to protect the almost 60 dogs living there (all neutered and fully vaccinated by our Temple-Team!)
Thank you again very much for your great support and kind regards – Brigitte and the Team
