Only thanks to you, over $83,000 has been raised dollars towards building the new hospital for stray dogs in need at the shelter in Phuket.
Sadly, we are still way below target. If you have not yet donated, now is your last chance. Please donate today to save countless lives in the future.
Thanks to you, we have now raised almost $80,000 towards building the new dog hospital at the shelter in Phuket. Thanks to your donations, the following progress has now been made on building this new hospital to save the lives of thousands of stray dogs:
-The concrete floor is now completed and about 40% of the steel columns to support the roof are now in place.
-The steel work is completed for the walls to the x-ray facility.
-The steel has been delivered for construction of the main roof.
-Bricks have been delivered for the internal and external walls and the brick laying team are due to commence work in the next few days.
This has only been possible because of YOUR donations.
We do however still have a long way to go in raising the funds needed to continue the construction of this hospital. Please share this appeal with friends, family and colleagues so that together, we can save the lives of thousands of sick, injured, abused and neglected street dogs.
To find our more about the urgent need for a new hospital for the stray dogs of Thailand, please watch the video below. Gill Dalley, co-founder of Soi Dog Foundation, tells us about the desperate need for this new hospital, and explains more about how it will help more homeless dogs in the years to come.
To celebrate the commencement of the construction of the new hospital, a traditional Buddhist ceremony was held to ensure the building of the new hospital is a success. The photo below shows Gill Dalley, co-founder of Soi Dog pouring concrete into the foundation, with John Dalley and volunteer construction manager Paul ensuring that she does not follow her bucket of concrete!
While almost $60,000 has now been raised towards the hospital, many more donations are needed to ensure its completion. With the hospital costing over 1 million dollars to construct, your help is desperately needed.
Thailand's neglected, injured, abused and sick dogs are relying on you. You can ensure more dogs are saved by donating towards the new hospital today.
Many thanks to all of you who have made generous donations to the new hospital at the Soi Dog shelter.
We're very excited that you have donated over $55,000 for the hospital since our fundraising campaign began and construction has now commenced. However, this is the most important construction project Soi Dog has ever undertaken and there is still a long way to go. With the new hospital costing $1 million, at least $250,000 is needed by the end of February to keep the dream alive of high quality medical care for stray dogs.
The dogs of Thailand desperately need your help. Our current clinic is now too small and outdated for the numbers of dogs being treated and sadly, dogs are dying as a result.
Only you can help Thailand's neglected, injured, abused and sick dogs. Please donate to help build the new hospital today. Please also help to spread the word to your friends, family and colleagues about this critical project.
Every day Soi Dog provides critical treatment for dogs who have suffered horrific traumas from road accidents and abuse, victims of contagious diseases and debilitating skin conditions and severely starved and dehydrated dogs unable to fend for themselves. Soi Dog cares for mothers with litters of puppies unable to care for themselves and orphaned puppies who would otherwise die.
Found alone and frightened on the street, Gilbert came to Soi Dog with tumours all over his stomach and ear. To prepare Gilbert for surgery, he was sent for an x-ray where it was discovered how horrific his life had really been. Strange objects were seen on the x-ray and when removed by the vets, these were revealed to be airgun pellets. At some stage in his life, this defenceless dog had been tied up and used as target practice.
Gilbert has recovered well from his surgery and now lives at the Soi Dog shelter where he is safe and will never be subject to cruelty again. Despite his traumatic past, Gilbert is a trusting boy and loves to spend time with volunteers.
Soi Dog provides the best care it can within the limits of its small clinic. But, Soi Dog treats thousands of dogs each year and the clinic is far too small and ill equipped to help this number of dogs. Dogs are suffering and dying as a result! Only you can change this.
A new, larger and better equipped hospital is needed now to prevent the unnecessary deaths and to give these poor dogs the lifesaving treatment they need and deserve. But, without you this will not happen. Will you make a donation right now? Your help will save lives!

Terms and conditions:
The number of donation packages is strictly limited and once these packages have been allocated, additional funds donated may be used for other essential items needed for the hospital such as painting, tiling, plumbing, electricals and equipment. The same thank you packages will apply to each amount donated (excluding plaques on individual kennels).
Hospital construction is expected to take a minimum of 12 months to complete, therefore photos of plaques will not be sent to donors until after the hospital is officially opened.
Thank you gifts (excluding photographs) may take up to 14 days to be sent to donors.
