Saving The Thai Street Dogs
I currently look after 80 street dogs by giving them food, medicine, vet care and sterilising the dogs to help stop the flow of puppies.
I fund the project myself ($2000-3000 per month) as well through donations I have raised here. Feeding them is a small part that only costs about $30 per day but it is the vet, medicine and sterilising bills that quickly add up. To sterilise one dog costs around $50 all in.
Every penny donated goes directly towards helping the dogs. I donate all my time for free and I also cover any banking or platform fees to ensure it helps the dogs directly. I am working towards having a facility and more people in an organisation to really help more dogs at scale so every penny helps.
To truly stop the suffering the population needs to be controlled. This can only be done via a neutering and spaying programme. It costs between $40-50 per dog to get it done. It is a complicated process given the dogs live on the streets so this money will help with the vet fees, medicine, transport, logistics, people to help etc.
I've already started the first 80 dogs thanks to funding and have done 12. If you count that each dog could have 10 puppies that means over 100 puppies have been stopped coming into this world and suffering. Funding really helps this.
Medical Care For Dogs
There are always new incidents with dogs from bone breaks to flesh wounds and illnesses. While many ailments can be treated out on the streets (ticks, worms, fleas etc) there are often expensive trips to the vets. This fund will also help rescue some dogs that wouldn't otherwise survive.
Every single day I feed between 70-80 dogs. This typically costs about $30. I would like to up the number of dogs that get fed daily and also buy goat's milk for puppies and additional special food for sick dogs as well as the odd treat!
Ticks, fleas and skin care are an ongoing problem. They can be tackled with bravecto medicine but this costs between $12-18 per dog for a 3 month period. Having this for all dogs would be a game changer in terns if the quality of their lives.
Finding More Dogs Like Bella To Save
Having you come onboard with a donation would make me so happy. I get endless pleasure in helping the dogs and I hope to be able to offer that feeling to a bigger audience. So many dogs are going to benefit from this and it will directly ease so much suffering.
This campaign will be the start of something so much bigger in the coming months and years. Thank you in advance.
