In early 2012, we discovered a facility at a local temple in Thaialnd housing more than 1,000 animals in deplorable conditions. The pictures below provide a snapshot of the standing water green with algae and trash debris, a breeding ground for infection and disease. This sick and starving animal population was it getting worse with each passing day. These creatures were at great risk by staying - but they had nowhere else to go.
The SPCA International team worked tirelessly to improve the conditions there in 2012, and things have gotten a lot better because of clean up, foundation and structural work that SPCA International orchestrated that year. Since then, the temple staff and local animal organizations and activists have stepped up to do more work on the structure and treat more of the sick and injured. Thanks to SPCA International's ongoing support and work by local organizations and activists, the future is looking brighter for the animals at Dog Condo.
A SPCA International team comprised of staff and volunteers returned to Thailand three times in 2012 to do clean up and structural work, and today we continue to support a local activist working on this difficult project. Without this investment of time and funds, hundreds of animals would have been left to fend for themselves in a place that no one should call home. We couldn't have done this without your support. Thank you for being part of our team!
