03 Dog of the Month: Jones

Hello there, it’s Jones at your service. How did I come to the shelter?  Well, thanks to some caring people, I was rescued from an abusive home so I am really happy to be in a new and safe environment where I get the attention I never experienced before – es, the ladies here have a really special place in my heart. Although I am of considerable size – and despite the past I’ve had – I am very friendly with people and would probably be best in a home as a single dog or with females as I can be a bit domineering with other males. But not to worry, my new family will get all my love and affection, that’s a promise! So consider letting me into your life and filling it with some BIG LOVE!!! If you are interested in Jones,  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.

04 Cats Need Homes

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:
