Giving Thailand’s disabled dogs a second chance in life

Giving Thailand's disabled dogs a second chance in life

The Man That Rescues Dogs Foundation’s mission is to see a happy and harmonious relationship between people and dogs in Thailand. The foundation was established in 2011 by Michael J. Baines, a Swedish entrepreneur who moved to Thailand to open a restaurant. Baines saw many stray dogs on the street that were unwell, sick, or injured. He threw himself in where he could by taking injured dogs to the local vet and offering food and treats. Shortly thereafter, Baines decided to create a rescue, rehabilitation and rehabilitation area to accommodate even more animals.

“The sanctuary opened in 2017 and is home to 600 rescued dogs and monitors and feeds an additional 350 in the Bangsaen and Sriracha areas. The sanctuary includes a full-service clinic, a care center for disabled dogs, a sterile quarantine department for new rescue workers and dogs with serious illnesses, a specialized distemper unit, three swimming pools for water therapy and exercise, and five main shelters each with a variety of fun obstacles for play and play Shadow. “- The man who saves the foundation of the dogs

In 2019, The Man That Rescues Dogs Foundation opened their clinic with two on-site veterinarians to care for The Sanctuary’s dogs and care for other pets in the area for free. The local government also supports the foundation with special help and partnership from the Mayor of Saensuk.

“Without a doubt, it gives the sick, neglected, abused street dogs of Thailand the second chance they deserve. The first time you see a paralyzed dog in a wheelchair running free and smiling is one of the best parts of the process, ”Baines said in an interview with Bored Panda.
