Sawan Maa: Happy Horse Sanctuary

Sabrina grew up in the countryside of Germany with lots of animals around. When she moved to Koh Pha Ngan in Thailand with her daughter she quickly found herself called to start rescuing dogs living in neglect on the island.
Horses and Ponies have long been her passion and she couldn’t turn a blind eye to the way horses were being treated on the island. First she rescued one pony that was tied by the side of the road in the heat without shelter or water and her group grew from there.
Sabrina and her daughter have since moved their troupe to Koh Samui but Sabrina still works and rescues on Koh Pha Ngan.
Sabrina funds her rescue work and sanctuary from her Business My Healthy me, but she is always short of money she is open to receiving donations of the following: Food, Money, Medication, Horse Equipment, and fencing materials.

Did you know that Sawan Maa has an exclusive Winners Circle?
YOU can be a part of it!
Sawan Maa gives shelter to over 8 Ponies and Horses who have been rescued from a life of neglect and abuse.
To keep our sanctuary running, feed animals in need, and offer crucial veterinary care, we need 100 people to sponsor the Sanctuary for only 500THB per month ($16USD, €15, £13, $25AUD).

Happy Tails Sanctuary Koh Samui

Francoise arrived in Thailand in 2006 with only her luggage and her 4 Belgian cats.She had no idea at that time that her life would totally change!

She has always shared her home with Dogs & Cats, she’s been an animal lover since she was a young child when she would bring home stray cats she would find on the streets.

Upon coming to Thailand she was devastated to discover the state of so many forgotten animals living alone on the streets. She could not ignore the plight of these lost souls. She started to help street dogs & cats with food, water, treatments for fleas & ticks, dewormng, medication for wounds and infections and of course sterilization.

Unfortunately what these animals most needed was safe and loving place they could call home, so she took one home, then another, and another, next thing she knew she was running a sanctuary!

She now has 45 dogs and 20 cats in her full time care, most live in the main house with her, some reside in the volunteer house and others are still living on the streets but cared for by Francoise.

Francoise receives no government or corporate funding, she fully funds her work alone and relies on donations from animal lovers across the globe.

Lamai Valley Dogs Koh Samui

Lamai Valley Dogs are are a dedicated  team of volunteers who have  feed stray dogs in the Lamai Valley (Koh Samui)  They have been doing this for over ten years now.  The volunteers provide the food, medication and occasional costs for sterilizations out of their own pockets. With our hard work, the number of dogs and cots has been more or less manageable… until recently.

Like so many volunteer groups, we are also suffering from the effects of the Covid Pandemic. We recently had a huge increase in numbers of dogs on our feeding round. Both the migrant and Thai workers have had to leave as 75% of them lost their jobs as businesses closed . As Covid took hold and the country closed borders other foreigners also had to leave due to visa constraints. Resulting in thousands of dogs being abandoned.
The number of starving dogs has doubled over the last 4 months….. which means our costs have doubled, caring for the dogs has now become a full time job.
Collectively, we are now taking care of over 150 dogs and we simply won’t be able to cope much longer.  Not only do we feed the dogs daily, we also provide medication and arrange for sterilization to avoid more litters of puppies. As we need to work harder to earn the money to buy food and medication, it is more and more difficult for us to get the money together and find the time to help all the dogs.

Please help us to help these poor forgotten dogs.
