05 Dog of the month: Chestnut

This lovely female is between 1-2 years old, medium-sized, with a soft, short (easily maintained!) coat. Sterilised and fully vaccinated, she is very sweet with adults and children of all ages. She also gets along well with other dogs. Chestnut’s only setback is that she likes to chew, so she would do best with an owner that is willing to train her and make sure she gets plenty of exercise. If you would like to meet Chestnut or any of our other furry friends, please contact the Care for Dogs shelter at 084 752 5255 (English), 086 913 8701 (Thai), or visit our website at for more information.

07 An Extraordinary Opportunity to Help Provide Mobility for 200 People

Pet International of Missouri, USA has graciously offered to donate a 40 foot sea container of 200 hand crank tricycle carts to the Foundation if they can raise the $4000 U.S to cover sea freight, domestic trucking, and custom clearance from Florida in the USA to Chiang Mai Thailand.

These life expanding carts are incredibly rugged and low maintenance. If you can spare $20 per item in order to bring freedom and independent movement into the lives of 200 needy disabled persons, they would be most grateful.Bank InformationFoundation To Encourage The Potential of Disabled Persons, Fixed Account 501-1-13375-7, Siam Commercial Bank, 17 Tha Pae Road, Swift Code: SICOTHBKContact:
