Vaccinate and Sterilise Stray Dogs in Thailand

by Global Vision International Charitable Trust


To provide vaccinations and sterilizations for approximately 60 dogs of Huay Pakoot, a small rural Karen hill tribe village in northern Thailand. Currently animals in the village have no access to basic medical care. Nearly all the dogs have fleas and ticks and many have worms and other illnesses and injuries including malnutrition. Vaccinations will help improve the lives of the dogs in the village and sterilizations will help control the population of stray dogs.

About 60 dogs in the Karen community of Huay Pakoot are living without basic medical care. They suffer from fleas, ticks, worms, mange and are susceptible to fatal diseases such as rabies, parvo and distemper. Without spaying or neutering the numbers continue to grow without resources to care for the animals and the cycle of disease and malnutrition continues. Many of the dogs reside at the school putting the village children at risk of biting or disease.


Vaccinations including rabies, parvo, distemper as well as shots for heart worm, fleas and ticks will keep the dog population healthy and prevent them from spreading disease and parasites to the people and other animals in the community. Neutering and spaying will prevent the reintroduction of more stray dogs which cannot be looked after. This project will help to control and maintain a healthy dog population in the village of Huay Pakoot.

Long-Term Impact

While the vaccinations will keep the current dog population healthy and prevent the spread of disease to humans and other animals in the community, the sterilizations will prevent reproduction and introduction of more dogs. With large litter sizes dog populations become out of control and the community can more effectively care for a smaller dog population. Many of the dogs are left to scavenge food on their own with limited resources available.
