When we started this project in 2012, about 60 dogs in the Karen community of Huay Pakoot were living without basic medical care. They suffered from fleas, ticks, worms and are susceptible to fatal diseases such as rabies, parvo and distemper.
Over the last year, we have been working hard on vaccinating the local dogs and to provide sterilisation to prevent the reintroduction of more stray dogs which cannot be looked after. In our last report, we mentioned the sad news that some dogs that had not received their vaccinations yet had unfortunately died. A volunteer with a background in the animal health field believed that the disease was ‘Distemper’. Luckily afterwards though, no other dogs had shown symptoms in Huay Pakoot.
Since this time, we have been using donations to continue vaccinating and sterilising the dogs to prevent such tragedies from occurring. Thank you for your continuing support, the funds received to have helped us close in on our goal.
