The Dog and Cat Rescue Samui Foundation

The Dog and Cat Rescue Samui Foundation rescues cats and dogs on the small Thai tropical island of Koh Samui. In addition to taking in and offering the animals food and shelter, they offer free treatment, a spay and neuter program and vaccination programs. They also run the Temple-Project whereby they help to feed the dogs of the temples on the island. Here we have two rescue stories that epitomise the ethos and work efforts of the foundation.
