Come and volunteer in a great atmosphere and help dogs and other animals rescued from the illegal Dog Meat Trade, abusive situations and accidents.
Because we, ‘Project Street Dogs Thailand’ only work with permanent volunteers, we offer the opportunity to experience a great adventure as a volunteer through our cooperation with Saved Souls Animal Sanctuary in Khon Kaen, Thailand
Name and location: Saved Souls Animal Sanctuary, Khon Kaen Province, Thailand (north-east of Thailand)
Khon Kaen is the capital city of the province of Khon Kaen which is in Khon Kaen district and has a population of 141,034 as per the last census in 2000. Khon Kaen is located 450 km from Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand. Life is hard for most animals in Thailand, especially stray animals. For example the the dog meat trade for human consumption is still very much alive in Thailand, and the torture and animal abuse that goes with that too of course! Often these animals are stolen off the streets and even from their owners!
How to get there: You arrive at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi airport from a international flight. From there you can take a shuttle bus to Don Mueang airport in Bangkok and take a domestic flight to Khon Kaen. If you prefer however you can also possible by train but it takes a lot longer than a flight. Once you’ve arrived in Khon Kaen a member of Saved Souls will come and pick you up for a fee of €25. Or else you can make your own way there by one Tuk Tuk Taxi. Is around 25 km (16 miles) from Khon Kaen airport to Saved Souls Animal Sanctuary.
Saved Souls is a well organized and efficient rescue charity run by the Swiss National Gabriela Leonhard and her Thai partner. With the help of several volunteers over recent years they have been able to save many dogs, especially dogs rescued from the dog meat traders! They have a population of 550 dogs, of which 80 are disabled dogs, as well as 50 cats, 3 pigs and a one dozen ducks!!
Volunteering: When you come to volunteer at Saved Souls you can expect to be doing some of the following work as well as much more; Swimming Therapy and playing/socializing the dogs, dog showers and possibly shave or haircut, cleaning and dressing wounds, cleaning kennels and much more. There is always lots of work to be done, one thing we guarantee is you won’t get bored!!
Who can come, who can volunteer? Everyone is welcome!!
