There are plenty of Soi dogs around Thailand and most of them look like they’ve had pretty rough lives. A lot get mistreated and injured and because they have no owners, they usually don’t receive any aid at all.
Phuket has its fair share of Soi dogs, some friendlier and cuter than others. The good news is that now they will all be given the opportunity to receive proper love and care when they get injured or are unhealthy. The first Soi dog hospital in Phuket has recently opened up and it’s the first of its kind in the entire nation. State of the art medical treatment will be provided, such as X-rays and hydrotherapy.
Aside from the hospital, other new services will also be provided. The Soi Dog Foundation is creating a new outreach department that will be launched in 2017. Veterinarian training will be given to people in Temples and other places where soi dogs are often found, so that dogs with minor injuries don’t take up vital space in shelters. With these new implementations, the soi dogs around Phuket will live healthier, happier lives. To learn more about the Soi Dog foundation, visit their website at www.soidog.org.
