03 Dog of the Month: Bambi

This is our newest addition to the shelter, Bambi. Sadly, her previous owners decided they no longer had a place for her in their life which is so difficult to understand as Bambi is indeed a delightful and happy soul who adapts easily to her surroundings and makes everybody around her smile. Bambi is a young female of small size, she is sterilized and vaccinated and has beautiful soft fur which makes you want to cuddle her even more. Due to her smaller size and her friendly and peaceful character she sometimes does get bullied at the shelter, therefore we hope that Bambi will be lucky to find a new, permanent and loving home very soon. Will you be the one to make her wish come true? Come and see for yourself how lovely our Bambi is. For further information please call the Care for Dogs shelter at 084 752 5255 (English), 086 913 8701 (Thai) or email Or visit our website at for more information.

Three rescue kittens and two young cats are looking for loving homes. Jake is a beautiful fawn tabby boy who purrs non-stop and loves to be loved! Rescued from the streets of Bangkok, he’s now vaccinated, sterilised and about eight months old – he’s a super friendly boy!  Two red & white tabby boys and one black boy, 5 months old, very friendly, and a very pretty female, Dalaa, about six months old. Like Jake, she’s super friendly and sterilised. Contact Gilly 0871 89 1623, Photos:
