Do you believe in miracles?

Above – Miracle, now happily living in beautiful Scotland. A world away, Miracle faced a much different fate. Many dogs like Miracle have fallen victim to the dog meat trade, snatched from the streets or from their homes only to face a certain slow and painful death.

The photo below was taken of Miracle when he and over one thousand other dogs were rescued. Because of our undercover agents investigations Miracle was saved. The generous donations of people like you fund these investigations. Only with your help will other dogs be as lucky as Miracle. Please donate today so that this evil trade is stopped!

I think Miracle’s photos sum it up why Soi Dog Foundation is determined to end this inhumane practice . Our undercover teams, operating as Watchdog Thailand are quite literally risking their lives in exposing and bringing to justice the people who profit from this misery. Sadly one of the team recently died, following a raid on the makeshift dog skinning camp pictured below.

Considerable progress continues to be made in ending the export of live dogs to Vietnam, but the local slaughter of dogs continues with at least 100,000 per year being killed for their skins alone. How many are being killed for his or her meat is anybody’s guess.

Just recently butchers in Nong Kai and Bueng Kan were arrested and their houses of death shut down. Raids have also been made on tanneries where dog skins are processed for making leather goods such as golf gloves.

Here is the face of one butcher recently arrested after a sting operation by undercover agents from Laos. He admitted to killing 5 or 6 dogs per day – nearly 2,000 dogs per year! There are many such butchers in the region. We were able to save the dogs awaiting slaughter. Sadly, one was a feeding mother and with no idea where she was from can only fear the worst for her puppies.

These dogs are now at a temporary shelter recovering, and will soon be moved to a permanent shelter built by Soi Dog’s supporters. They will join the approximately 2,000 other victims desperately in need of homes.

It costs a lot of money to keep our teams in the field and to care for the rescued dogs. The dogs have nobody else to fight for them, and only with your help will they be cared for and Thailand’s illegal dog trade be brought to an end. Every investigation and arrest costs money. The cost of looking after rescued dogs is huge. Please donate today so that this evil trade is stopped!

Without you they have no chance, and the traders and smugglers will win.

Ten thousand dollars alone is being spent on the production and erection of hundreds of posters throughout Thailand offering rewards leading to the arrest of dog thieves and those who employ them. Another ten thousand dollars spent on giving all the rescued dogs vaccines this month.

Because of your support we are also employing additional staff to find new homes for as many of these unfortunate dogs as possible both here in Thailand and overseas.

Members of the Magic 1000 Club are saving the lives of these dogs! If you are not yet a member, please join the Magic 1000 Club today. Without you, dogs like Miracle & Terri (pictured here) would not have had a chance.

Ending the trade is challenging and achievable with your support!
