Thread: Fundraiser For Stray Dogs & Cats in Thailand

  1. #1

    Default Fundraiser For Stray Dogs & Cats in Thailand

    Hi All

    I just wanted to let you all know about a fantastic fundraising event that is being held in Melbourne on Friday 5th February to raise money for the Soi Dog Foundation in Phuket Thailand.

    Soi Dog Foundation is a not-for-profit, legally registered charitable organization, and their aim is to minimize suffering of the street and stray dogs as well as feral cats through sterilization and vaccination, treat the sick and/or injured who are otherwise left suffering, feed those who otherwise go hungry, create a better and safer environment for the people and the animals & educate the people about the Schools Program of cats and dogs to themselves and the society at large and teach humane treatment of these animals. If you have ever visited the island of Phuket you will understand how important the work of the Soi Dog Foundation is.

    The event is actually the Australian premiere of the documentary 'Soi Dogs' by Evironment Films which follows key members of the Soi Dog Foundation, John & Gill. The documentary is a testament to their dedication in helping the estimated 20,000 dogs living wild on the island of Phuket. The documentary is FAMILY FRIENDLY, it is not one of those graphic documentaries.

    The event is hosted by Providing Aid For Animals Worldwide (PAAW) - a local Melbourne not-for-profit charity, and all proceeds will go directly to the Soi Dog Foundation.

    Please see the attached flyer for all relevant details about the evening.

    Good cause - but I would rather see out money go towards the street dogs in Australia and towards fixing the major problems we have in rural Australia, esp in the Aboriginal communities, with dogs.

    Best of luck though - it is a worthy cause.

    I agree Australia has a lot of problems as well but animal neglect and abuse is a GLOBAL problem and I don't think animal that are suferring should be ignored because they are in another country.

    This is only one of many fundraising events PAAW has held - last year we had fundraisers for Help For Wildlife - Aussie animal welfare group that took in many of the animals affected by the busfires. We have also recently raised money for Edgar's Mission & the Australian Animal Protection Society.

    Thanks for taking the time to have a read & comment, one day we will win the battle against animal cruelty!!

    Cheers

    Major problems.. i know someone that has to deal with the dogs.. He is a ranger up north of WA. He puts down 500 dogs a week.

    Yes animals cruelty is a global problem, but im a huge believers of fixing what happening in our backyard before dealing with anyone else

    We are a global society and I feel very comfortable with extending help to those humans and animals in Australia and overseas.

    Even when I was running my own rescue, I still donated to other rescues. The problem was not just in my backyard, but everyone's backyard. Dogs are dogs all over the world. Humans are humans all over the world.

    The needy are everywhere in all forms.
    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Agreed 100%. Dogs don't know countries.
