We are 20 puppies waiting to be picked up, cuddled, and forever loved!

We were all dumped under Rama IX bridge last month, cold and hungry, without our mommy. We’re temporarily staying at Care For Dogs’ shelter though we’re eager to find homes and adoptive families. We’ve been vaccinated, dewormed, bathed, and well fed! If you want to feel some love, come and see us wag our baby tails!
