A future emergency shelter could look like this……

Koh Chang really urgently needs an emergency rescue shelter!
Every day we are confronted with the fate of stray dogs on the island. Puppies our animal welfare on Koh Chang died away under the hands and the desperation was very large.
This has prompted us not to wait until we have accumulated enough money to build a perfect sanctuary. For that we would need approximately Bath 6 Million. Money that we do not have at the moment. Out of desperation, we have rented a small plot of 1.2 Rai (about 1800 sqm) in January 2016th. We are calling it “The Sanctuary of Hope”.
Nevertheless and despite the temporary small Sanctuary, we still work hard to get Koh Chang the badly needed sustainably operated final Shelter to give forever homes to animals that can not survive on the roads on their own, to spay and neuter and to prepare others for adoptions nationwide and internationally.The Sanctuary, and later the final shelter should also become a place of animal treatment education and a first step has been done by inviting the young students of Cambodian Kids Care. The children are not only the future of the island, they will carry home to the families what they will learn with us about proper animal car
“Sanctuary of Hope” is a first step in the right direction and hopefully just the beginning.
