Activity Report – October 2017
Boss, a three-legged dog who lives on the beach, found a sponsor who asked me to find a safe place for Boss. Boss is now also staying at Meow's Thepprasit shelter. I'm now working intensively at that shelter to support Meow. I like that place because the dogs are free to roam the adjacent wasteground since it is a shelter without fences. More than one hundred dogs and a couple of cats live there in almost perfect harmony, including 24 of “my” dogs.

Nine of my other dogs are staying at Meow's second shelter which is walled in. I'm feeding and monitoring 18 more dogs at Wat Amparahm in Baan Amphur. Five dogs are living with me. About 30 dogs are currently being monitored living on the streets and on wastelands.

I vaccinated a bunch of puppies and treated some of them against blood parasites. Rudi's mange is under control again, but he developed renal disease. He is being treated at Thepprasit shelter; his condition is stable. Khiaow is also being treated for renal disease. Her prognosis, however, is poor. She is receiving fluid daily. Uro and Frosty have been treated for an abscess; Zola for a bite wound. Nom is receiving chemotherapy after weaning, as well as two dogs from the streets, Salim and Suay. Ihu, Wan Sao, Mala, Yello, Dina, Mila and Kapoon have been spayed/neutered.

Apart from working closely with Meow at her two shelters and monitoring three dozen dogs on the streets and on wastegrounds, I'm trying to help Hope for Strays Foundation to build a shelter for 120 dogs mainly by raising funds to construct and equip the facilities. The shelter is currently home for about thirty dogs and is supposed to be complete at the end of this year.
Activity Report – September 2017
I took Rudi and Patty from Baan Amphur shelter into the house I now live in. Rudi's skin conditions deteriorated and Patty was unhappy. Rudi gets bathed twice a week with Malaseb and gets Ivermectin treatment. His condition improved. His movements, impaired by a broken hip, also improved slightly. Patty is getting along well with Kenji, Johnny, Toya and Zola.

All of the other surviving dogs from the Bang Saray municipality shelter are now either in Meow's Baan Amphur shelter, or at her Thepprasit shelter, or stay at Wat Amparahm. Seventeen dogs are now staying in Baan Amphur; eleven plus 3 newborns are at Thepprasit, and eleven dogs are at Wat Amparahm. Most dogs have been treated with Ivermectin to keep the tick problem in check and to avoid mange and heart worms. Mee and Bobby, dogs I have known for several years and whose caretakers moved up country, are now staying at Thepprasit shelter.
Activity Report – August 2017
Jack's injury turned out to be a tumor. The vets at NPW clinic recommended amputating the leg. I shifted him to Silverlake clinic where the surgery had been carried out. After a full recovery, Jack and Jane have been brought back to the parking lot. Some dogs at Wat Amparahm are suffering from skin conditions. I treated them with a cumin/coconut oil paste. Four cats and a dog at Wat Pong have been sterilized.

Fifteen of my dogs, which I had accommodated at Bang Saray municipality shelter, had been killed by people who entered the shelter. I took all surviving dogs out of the shelter and placed them into a private shelter run by Meow, a woman I support. I took Svetja, a dog which begged me to take her from the municipality shelter, to Meow's Thepprasit shelter where she then gave birth to six puppies. It also turned out that Svetja is suffering from TVT.
Activity report July 2017
At Meow's two sanctuaries I have now six dogs placed: Namtarn and Mom at Baan Amphur sanctuary and Anna, Felix, Tayo and Rudi at Thepprasit sanctuary. Namtarn and Mom are both handicapped. Namtarn lost a hind leg and Mom has a crippled front leg. Felix overcame a severe anemia and Anna suffered temporarily from seizures. She was also bitten by a poisonous snake but recovered well after intensive treatment.

At the same day, Lola, another dog at Meow's care, was bitten by a large centipede. Lola also recovered well after intensive care. Tayo is recovering from a broken hind leg and Rudi from a broken hip. There is no other place for me to accommodate handicapped or recovering dogs than at Meow's places and therefore I support her as good as I can.

The dogs at Bang Saray shelter and at Wat Amparahm are fine. In case of a minor injury can I take one or two of them into the house where I'm living now. Lady and Khao have been staying with me for a week. Lady suffered from an injury at one of her front paws and Khao from a bite wound at her left eye.

Right now there are five dogs permanently staying with me. Kenji, Johnny, Zola, Toya and since recently also Dina. Dina stayed in Bang Saray but disappeared two weeks after I placed her there together with all the other dogs from House Mabprachan. When she appeared again she carried a wire cutting deep into her abdomen. She obviously got caught in a wire trap. A forty centimeter long suture had to be applied to secure the closure of the wound. Dina is now on the way of recovery.

Kenji had to be admitted to NPW clinic as well since he suffered from heavy vomiting and acted lethargic. Kenji has been given fluid intravenously for five days.

Luk Jeab, one of Prajuab's dogs, Avira, Mela and Somlo staying a Wat Amparahm, Cowy and Dart staying at Baan Amphur beach as well as Joo and Ming staying at a village have been spayed. Avira's three pups have been vaccinated as well as three pups at Prajuab's care.

Hiro and Zaina, two dogs from the streets being at risk to be deported to Phutaluang, have been taken to Bang Saray shelter. Jack and Jane, two dogs staying at a North Pattaya parking lot have been blow darted since they were very evasive. Jack suffers from a lengthy injury at his left front leg and Jane contracted TVT. Jack is being treated at NPW clinic and Jane has been admitted to Silverlake clinic. Dodo, a male dog, also suffering from TVT, is being treated at Silverlake clinic as well. He is one of the dogs Meow is feeding in the streets.
Activity Report June 2017
The dogs that I placed on a separate area at Bang Saray municipality shelter settled in well. However, four of them decided to leave the fenced in, but still open, area. The dogs have a large area to roam around and enjoy their freedom. Once a day they get fed by a shelter staff with rice food and dry food.

I go to see these dogs twice a week, as well the dogs at Wat Amparahm and on Baan Amphur Beach. A mother dog with four puppies has been dumped there. All of them are in good condition and are being looked after. Two other young dogs have been dumped at the beach. Newly dumped dogs are having a hard time getting accepted by the established groups. It remains to be seen whether they will stay and whether I can get close to them.

Ivy, a pup from the street, and Deva, a pup from the beach, have been spayed. A number of puppies have been vaccinated. Muen, one of Prajuab's dogs, has been treated in a clinic for severe bite wounds. Tayo, a dog living on the beach, stayed in a clinic for two weeks to treat an open leg fracture. He has been neutered as well. Tayo will stay in a sanctuary for the time being since he is going to be adopted. Khun Chai, one of the dogs in Meow's care, has been poisoned. We were still able to save his life, and he seems to be fine now.
Activity Report – May 2017
Someone dumped a pregnant dog at Wat Amparahm. After a few days, she gave birth to six puppies; two of them disappeared after three weeks. The remaining four puppies and the mother dog were fine at the end of the month.

A blood test revealed that no parasites could be detected in Lilly's blood; I took her back to Wat Amparahm. Toby, another dog living at the temple, developed a big abscess which had to be removed surgically. Toby recovered well after a week in a clinic.

A resident made me aware of a dog with six puppies. I vaccinated the dogs two times. Another resident showed me an old dog in very bad condition. He died after a few days in a clinic.

The stitched wound at Zola's flank broke open and I took her from Bang Saray shelter into my new house. At the end of the month, the wound had been almost closed. Kenji and Johnny, another pit bull mix, are now staying in my new house as well.

The dogs at Bang Saray shelter settled in well. They are getting fed with rice food and some of them were already gaining weight. Off and on I missed two or three of them, but none of them ran away for long.

Three bitches my helper Wan is looking after have been spayed. Another bitch staying in Naklua Slum has been spayed, as well as a bitch living at Bongkot Market and two of Prajuab's bitches. Felix and Anna, who are living at Meow's place, are affected by blood parasites and are receiving treatment.
Activity Report – April 2017
I continued to relocate all dogs that don't need to go to Bang Saray shelter. Tommy went to a foster home waiting to be adopted. Iang and Ivy went back to their place at the guesthouse in Central Pattaya. Felix, Anna, Mom and Namtarn were placed at Meow's shelter. Kenji and Johnny have been castrated. Kenji cannot go back to his place; a solution for him has to be found.

A fence separating the allocated area at Bang Saray shelter from the main shelter has been built, as well as six dog houses containing 21 units during the first two weeks of the month. After the area was ready to accommodate fifty to seventy dogs, I moved the remaining forty dogs from House Mabprachan to the shelter. About ten dogs that lived in that area before we leased it are still living there. All dogs are being daily fed with rice food and dry food. After a short time of settling in, they started to explore the area inside the fence and very soon also outside the fenced-in area. They seemed to enjoy the extended freedom; even if they could run away they didn't.

Since the dogs are fed daily, I don't need to see them every day. Wat Amparahm is on the way to the shelter; so I'm now going to see all the dogs there and at the shelter every two or three days. The new set-up implies that my daily work load will be reduced by a couple of hours.
