Rob’s Dogs Thailand: Samui S&N Transport

Motorcycle Sidecar Fundraiser

Thank you to all who donated to our Motorcycle sidecar fundraiser!

We now have our new transport (pictured).
We desperately needed this for our  Samui S&N program, we used it this past Saturday & we so happy at all the extra equipment she could carry & the animals she could offer to deliver due to having the space in the sidecar.

We raised 15,000thb (Approx $700aud) for the bike – however the lovely man who sold us the bike gave us a HUGE discount once he found out it was going to be used to help animals!

So we could put the spare money into our Samui S&N events.

Rob’s Dogs Thailand: Samui Spay-a-Thon

We ran a HUGE community sterilization event August 12th – 16th on Koh Samui.

Over 4 Days – With 4 teams of  Vets – We Sterilized 51 animals – And Saved over 4.5 million lives!

This was our first event partnering with Rajamangala University of Technology Srivijaya – Faculty of Veterinary Science.
We sterilized a total of 51 animals – 23 of which were female dogs & 8 female cats. According to PETA estimates is over 4.5 MILLION dogs and cats that will not be born into a lifetime of neglect.
We were so happy with the way this event worked that we would like to partner again with RUTS – Faculty of Veterinary Science in the future

Sawan Maa: Vet Services & Operations

Operation for Sandy: Sandy is our beautiful but broken thoroughbred Mare. She has needed much medical care since she injured herself giving birth to a foal and now suffers from what is called a Pneumo Vagina, which basically means that she is very prone to bacterial infections through sucking in the humidity and bacterial into her uterus. She can be in lots of pain and become infected with maggots very easily if not constantly monitored. She often needs antibiotics to help her and we desperately need the vet to operate on her as soon as possible. The cost of this operation will be ฿10,000 ($476AUD).
We are scheduling the vet to come and do this operation in early August. We we also need to geld two stallions. Sioux, the foal who is quickly growing up and becoming a handful, along with Kai who, although older is beside himself to get to poor Sandy. Sandy is the only Mare that we have and keeping these stallions calm is becoming extremely difficult, unhealthy for them and dangerous. We have to keep them separate which is very frustrating for everyone and not sustainable at the Sanctuary. The cost of their operations will be ฿5,000 ($238AUD) each plus the costs of travelling for the vets, as we need special horse vets only available from the mainland.

Sawan Maa: HORSE SHELTER

UPDATE: HORSE SHELTER FULLY FUNDED!

Sabrina is a solo rescuer running Sawan Maa she is fully self funded in this work by doing pet transportation and contributing proceeds from sales in her health food shop.

Last year she was living on Koh Phangan and during a thunderstorm lighting stuck causing a fore which burnt down her dog shelter and horse shelter, she since moved her family and all the animals to Koh Samui, she has a great piece of lad located on the northwest side of the island, and has already built a great dog shelter, but the horses also need a shelter to keep them protected during the monsoonal rains.

So we just need to raise the money to build the horse shelter- it will be no more than 19,000THB (Approx $1,000AUD)  If we get more money than is needed for construction of the shelter we will use it to buy food for the rescue horses.

PARIAH DOG: ACCESS ROAD

UPDATE: ACCESS ROAD FULLY FUNDED!

Pariah Dog has been super busy building shelters, compounds, cat house and excellent clinic/hospital facility.  This all costs money and now there is none left to pay for the access road.

At the moment the road is dirt which washes away in the monsoonal rains we get here on Samui, making it very rough an dangerous. At the moment its only accessible using a 4WD, meaning visitors and volunteers must be picked up at the main road. It’s also very jarring and stressful for dogs being brought to the clinic.

We have set up a fundraiser to help our friends at Pariah Dog to raise the money they need to build this road.

We are super excited to announce that SamuiPongPetch will be constructing the road for us! They came out and surveyed the site and submitted a substantially cheaper quote. The total cost of the road will now be: $21,364 ,this fully builds the road needed at three meters wide and 200 meters in length and includes storm gutters and drains along the side (which the previous quote didn’t include)  these will be imperative to stop the road washing away during monsoon season.

We are offering to be part of the Pariah dog road to safety. Have your name on the road leading up to the shelter and clinic!

$107AUD buys you one meter of road & we will put your name on it!

Great gift – Great memorial for a lost loved one – Great way to help the dogs.
