This amazing foundation, dedicated to saving the street dogs of Thailand, has now received a $300 donation from the Benjamin Project. They aim to help the many thousands of dogs abused, abandoned and starving in that country, where the Soi Dog Foundation was the first of its kind to achieve official not-for-profit status.
The organization is now just over 10 years old, but it now has a shelter in Phuket and a clinic in Bangkok. Their track record includes thousands of vaccinations and sterilizations, together with the arrest of more than 30 dog smugglers.
A worthy ally in the campaign to protect animals everywhere.
