Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Animal Welfare Employment and Training

We strive to be an inclusive organization that provides equal opportunity to everyone regardless of gender, sexual orientation, religion, caste, education level or any other reason. Women make up the majority of our board of directors and field team and occupy two of the three field leadership positions spread across both countries. The entire staff in Thailand are all women with most of them from local tribal communities such as the Akha and Karen tribes. Some of the people we employ and support range from stateless individuals and those living below the poverty line to survivors of abuse and domestic violence, trafficking and addiction. In addition we sponsor the education of the children of our staff so they can get the best opportunities possible and the parents don't need to worry about how to pay for school.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

We manage a street treatment project aiming to train and employ disadvantaged people from the local community in animal first aid, catch and release and handling. We have an animal ambulance and a field team of seven working everyday in the Behala area of the city. We perform dozens of treatments every day and deal with issues ranging from severe injuries from vehicle accidents and dog fights, parvo and skin infections, to maggot infections, abuse, neglect and malnutrition. We vaccinate against rabies and parvo, all the animals that we treat and conduct vaccination drives each year in honor of World Rabies Day.

We sponsor a feeding program that provides food for over 450 dogs and cats each day in various parts of the city. We also use the program as an opportunity to monitor the overall health of the animals, address any medical issues when they arise, engage with the community and prevent human / animal conflicts from occurring.

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people
Economically disadvantaged people

We sponsor and manage a sanctuary for abused, neglected and severely injured dogs and cats. Our facility has space for 40 dogs and 30 cats and takes in the type of cases that can't survive on the streets on their own, for various reasons. Animals in our care may have lost a limb, be blind and/or deaf, been abandoned as a pet without the skills to survive on the streets, separated from their mother too early after birth, fighting cancer or suffering from such severe abuse and neglect that they're too scared to be around people. Our team cares for them and works to rehabilitate them into adoptable animals and find them good, loving homes. Animals can spend as much as time as they need at our facility and we will care for them until they are fully recovered and ready to be rehomed, no matter how long it takes.

We work with the local Wildlife Department and WVS (World Veterinary Services) to conduct sterilizations events throughout the year to prevent thousands of unwanted births.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Animals
- Provide high quality medical care to stray animals living on the streets.
- Vaccinate against rabies and parvo, all animals that come under our care
- Sterilize as many animals as we can to help reduce the stray animal population
- Provide compassionate care to the animals we treat and offer safe and nurturing environments for rehabilitation.

People
- Offer above average wages, training and employment to disadvantaged individuals so they can have more opportunities
- Create respectful and caring working environments to help staff achieve their full potential
- Focus on learning as a tool for improvement by sponsoring the education of all children of staff members

Kolata, India
We manage a street treatment project aiming to train and employ disadvantaged people from the local community in animal first aid, catch and release and handling. We have an animal ambulance and a field team of seven working everyday in the Behala area of the city. We perform dozens of treatments every day and deal with issues ranging from severe injuries from vehicle accidents and dog fights, parvo and skin infections, to maggot infections, abuse, neglect and malnutrition. We vaccinate against rabies and parvo, all the animals that we treat and conduct vaccination drives each year in honor of World Rabies Day.

Chiang Rai, Thailand
We sponsor and manage a sanctuary for abused, neglected and severely injured dogs and cats. Our facility has space for 40 dogs and 30 cats and takes in the type of cases that can't survive on the streets on their own, for various reasons. Animals in our care may have lost a limb, be blind and/or deaf, been abandoned as a pet without the skills to survive on the streets, separated from their mother too early after birth, fighting cancer or suffering from such severe abuse and neglect that they're too scared to be around people. Our team cares for them and works to rehabilitate them into adoptable animals and find them good, loving homes. Animals can spend as much as time as they need at our facility and we will care for them until they are fully recovered and ready to be rehomed, no matter how long it takes.

We work with the local Wildlife Department and take in rescued animals from hoarding situations and severe neglect and abuse from places like trash heaps. We also conduct sterilization programs throughout the year with the Wildlife Department and WVS (Worldwide Veterinary Services). These programs sterilize hundreds of animals every year and prevent the births of thousands of unwanted dogs and cats.

We work in the local tribal communities to educate people about animal welfare, rabies, the dog meat trade and how to reduce animal/human conflict. We also provide grooming services, vaccinations and sterilizations to animals living in the villages to help improve their quality of life and their standing in the community.
