A ‘pawsome’ Sunday with Surf for Soi Dog at SurfHouse Kata Beach

Soi Dog Foundation, teaming up with Surf House Phuket, had a ‘pawsome’ day of surfing yesterday. The proceeds from the surfing tickets were donated to contribute to the work of Soi Dog on helping to relieve the suffering of dogs and cats across Thailand and Asia.

The charity surfing session took place from midday until 6pm and was attended by a number of surfers, from beginners to experts, who had much fun riding the waves while helping their furry buddies.

There was also a Soi Dog Foundation booth where guests could chit-chat with the staff and get any information they want to know about Soi Dog. There were also some Soi Dog souvenirs such as towels, keyrings, bandanas, water bottles, wristbands, caps and shirts for sale. Right next door, a booth serving delicious hotdogs at a special price (not real dog!!).

The money from the sale of surfing tickets is going to help the charity to expand their facilities, including the new cat hospital, because the existing rooms are too small to handle the large number of abandoned and stray cats arriving at the shelter each day. Also, more kennels are being completed to allow the Foundation to care for more suffering dogs.

Soi Dog Foundation has been taking care of stray animals on the island of Phuket for 15 years and is still going strong. Its mission, to create a better life for stray dogs and cats, costs a large amount of money and all of this is based solely on donations.

The core mission of Soi Dog Foundation is ‘CNVR’ which is short from Capture, Neuter, Vaccinate, and Release. It is the effective method to control the population as well as diseases among stray animals. Apart from CNVR, Soi Dog also rescues injured or sick dogs and cats, rehomes them and provides veterinarian treatment.
