While on a recent trip to Thailand to collect dogs for transportation, we were struck by the very real tragedy of dogs dying or become dangerously sick or injured while awaiting flights home.
The streets of Thailand may be where these dogs come from, but it is not where they belong. Poison, traffic accidents, attacks from humans and other animals, electrocutions, snares, the list goes on as to why these dogs need removing from the street as soon as a suitable home is found.
Dogs and cats must not be left on the street when they can be saved.
The risk is simply too high.
In March 2020, Action For Dogs opened our first Foster Home - a safe house for adopted dogs and injured strays.
We have affordable limited spaces available for foster dogs, and it is these adopter-funded spaces that allow us to continue our rescue work in the local area, offering a safe and loving environment to emergency cases, and assisting with the adoption and transportation of these lucky rescues to their new homes.
If you need a foster placement for your dog, please let us know as far in advance as possible and we will do our best to meet your needs.
This is a home environment, where your dog will receive basic training, regular walks, home-cooked food and daily cuddles on the sofa.
We can also arrange titer tests and all necessary documents for international transport while your dog stays with us, as well as vaccinate and sterilise if necessary.
