Soi Dogs

TBL Partners with Soi Dog Foundation

In November 2016, we began partnering with the Soi Dog Foundation (SDF) of Thailand. We are committed to helping them put an end to the illegal dog meat trade (DMT) in Thailand and surrounding countries. These dogs have endured a horrifying existence, and for many torture, prior to being rescued by SDF. Their resilience is inspiring and their gratuity will amaze you. Becky, Bingo, Hyatt, Ragnar, and Tina were the first to make the 24 hour journey from from Phuket to San Diego and many, many more will follow. We are steadfast in our partnership until every DMT dog has found a loving home. Please consider adding one of these fortunate pups to your family. They are beyond deserving.

If you’re not able to adopt at this time, but are interested in supporting us with the Soi Dogs, please considering donating!
