Bon Jardin Dog Rescue, Thailand

Help 8.5 million street dogs in Thailand

There are currently over 8.5 million homeless dogs on the streets of Thailand with over ¾ million abandoned by their owners. These numbers increase every day. Most of the dogs live in terrible conditions with no shelter, food, medical treatment or love; it’s a tragic and inhumane existence.  Many of these poor animals live in constant pain with terrible injuries and no hope of respite as in Thailand dogs are not allowed to be put to sleep. Street dogs are also smuggled out of the country for dog meat trade in neighbouring countries.  

 

Please help to change their lives….

Bon Jardin is pioneering a new dog rescue charity in Thailand focused on alleviating the needless suffering of neglected street dogs, creating a sustainable programme to change their lives for the better.                                                                                                                              

The rescue centre is based in Nakhon Nayok, a central province of Thailand (less than a 2-hour drive from Bangkok) on 50-acres of land at the foothills of the Khao Yai National Park. The centre will include a dog sanctuary, veterinary centre and education buildings, as well as accommodation for staff, students and volunteers.

Our charity focuses on four key areas:

  • Mobile Spay & Neuter Programme
    Vital to control rampant population growth. 
     
  • Rescue & Rehabilitation
    Shelter and rehabilitation for defenceless frail, sick, injured or very young dogs. Pack fighting can result in severe wounds which, left untreated can lead to disease and additional health problems. 
     
  • Dog Training
    In-house training for adoptable rescue dogs providing basic house training and socialising skills, helping to maintain order at the shelter and giving hope of a new home. 
     
  • Education & Community Awareness
    Working with and educating the local community to understand the value of animal welfare ensures longevity and ongoing success of our rescue. 

 

On a monthly basis we visit temples carrying out mobile Spay & Neuter (sterilisation) programmes, this has already helped hundreds of animals, removing them from the endless breeding cycle leading to an observable a decline in birth rates. This crucial work has been welcomed by the community.

 

Our current Dog rescue cases include:

  • Goh Goh, Di Di and Patch
    A litter of puppies who were cruelly dumped on the side of the road
     
  • Buddy Boy
    A severely injured dog Buddy, mauled by other dogs
     
  • Alice & Tiara
    Two Huskies who were very badly owner-abused and left as little more than skeletons
     
  • Poki
    A rescue from the Thup Tham government shelter (who has now become a cherished resident)
     
  • Sumlee
    Perhaps our most shocking rescue case, Sumlee who was shot by a farmer in the local village and is now paralysed from the waist down…
     

Bon Jardin gives these dogs another chance

Your contribution to the rescue centre will help us extend our footprint and impact in the community...

We have already established a solid foundation for our project, but we now need to build new shelter facilities to achieve our full potential to help thousands more dogs in desperate need. Our goal is to raise £35,000 for Phase 1 of the building.
