Welcome to the Rob’s Dogs Monthly Update.

SAMUI CNVR FACILITY

Part of why we started Rob’s Dogs was because we saw a gap in what was being provided by other animal welfare groups – most are based on the shelter model, which is not a long term effective solution. Most street dogs don’t like to be confined, and shelters need a lot of money to keep running well. A badly run shelter is heartbreaking for anyone who has to come in and try and fix the problems.

Lots of people all over the world are doing a great job trying to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals, but most are so busy that all their time and resources goes into this work, meaning there is little time or money to focus on a CNVR program (catch, neuter, vaccinate and release).  We believe the most effective way to alleviate suffering for dogs and cats is through sterilization.  We dream of day when no animals need to stay in shelters long term.
We have been working on sterilizing since our inception in 2017, but now we want to expand our work to be even more effective, we want to sterilize everyday!

Koh Samui is currently drowning in puppies and abandoned animals.

Soi Dog will come to Samui in February 2021 and spend around 6 months sterilizing approximately 80% of the islands dog population. Then there needs to be a maintenance program in place, so the population doesn’t explode again.

We would like to have a “dream” CNVR facility  with the capacity to sterilize around 400 animals per month.

We have a vision for a “dream” facility: to fully realize this dream facility we need $60,000AUD (1,303,500thb) to get it up & running, then we need $20,000AUD (430,000thb) per month to run it. This is doing high volume S&N 6 days a week. With a target of 400 animals per month (Putting the cost per animal at around 1,000thb)

STERLIZING SAMUI CATS!
On Sunday the 10th of January we ran a cats only sterilization day with Animalia Pet Hospital.
This was our third event partnering with Animalia & we are really grateful for their ongoing support of our sterilization program.
They sterilized a total of 13 cats – 10 of which were female cats. According to PETA estimates is over 3.7 MILLION cats that will not be born into a lifetime of neglect.
We would like to offer our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the following people and places without who’s help we couldn’t have run this event:
Katie Hollamby & Autumn Maddox McTaggart who ran this whole event – nothing is possible without you two lovely ladies ❤
The Secret Cafe, Ester & Emil, Clifford England, Norman, Jules Amana, Brenda Roodhof & Alex Traveller for donations which meant we could offer so many free spots to street cats.
Ratisha Pharmacy for supplying the aftercare meds.
FluffyHome PetHotel for supplying the rabies vaccines.
For everyone who donates to Rob’s Dogs – we thank you all. None of our work is possible without your ongoing support.

FIVE DOLLAR FRIDAY IS BACK!
Can you forgo that extra coffee or cake and donate $5 to Rob’s Dogs each Friday?
We have over 1,000 followers on our social media channels.
If all of our followers subscribed for just FIVE DOLLARS per week, we would have a guaranteed monthly cash flow of $20,000AUD.
Which is more than enough to pay for the ongoing costs of running a CNVR facility on Koh Samui.
Five dollars a week ($20 a month or 500thb) isn’t a lot of money, even during these difficult and uncertain times, you get to know that your money is making a REAL difference to the lives of animals on Koh Samui.

ARE YOU THINKING OF TRYING A PLANT BASED DIET?
Are you worried it will only be salads and weird ingredients like Quino?
Not to worry! Rob’s Dogs takes vegan cuisine to a whole new level! Our modern take on classic dishes shows that eating plant based doesn’t have to be scary OR boring!
Written by one of our supporters who is passionate about empathetic cooking, and has spent years adapting and perfecting family favorite recipes in a compassionate manner, she has gifted us the cookbook to raise money and awareness for the plight of animals worldwide.
This collection of 50 recipes, many of which are classic Australian recipes including: Pasties, Sausage Rolls, Toad in the Hole, Sausage loaf, Lemon slice, caramel slice, vanilla slice and Yo-yo’s. Heavily influenced by the authors time in Asia it includes classic Asian dishes such as: Mango “Chicken”, Lemon “Chicken”, Mongolian “Beef”, Sweet Chili “Chicken: and Thai Pumpkin Soup.
In addition to the amazing recipes, the author has included a list of essential vegan ingredients, with descriptions on what the ingredients are and what they can be used for. The recipes each has clear easy to follow instructions with step by step full color photographs.
With additional recipes covering essentials such as cheese, milk, dough’s and sweeteners, I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S VEGAN celebrates compassionate cooking without the loss of taste! This collection of recipes is sure to satisfy the taste buds of vegans and non-vegans alike.

Each book covers the cost of ONE street dog being sterilized – thus saving 67,000 unwanted dogs from being born!

SAMUI POP UP S&N
On Saturday the 23rd of January we ran what will most likely be our last pop up S&N event on Samui.
Soi dog will come next month & spend around 6 months sterilizing around 80% of the islands dog population – during this time we will be fundraising to set up a FULL TIME sterilizing facility to take over when Soi dog leave.
This was a great event we sterilized a total of 15 animals – 8 of which were female dogs & 6 of which were female cats. Which according to PETA estimates is over 2.7 MILLION dogs and cats that will not be born into a lifetime of neglect.

We would like to offer our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the following people and places without who’s help we couldn’t run these events.

Dow RuayPech who helps schedule all the spots & liaises with Thai solo rescuers needing support.
