A message from Santisook Dog and Cat Rescue volunteers

Beautiful Ben, a friendly calico kitty, is looking for a loving home.

We are a small group of volunteers, Thai and farang, dedicated to helping the cats and dogs of Chiang Mai. Mid June will see the completion of our cat rescue shelter at Doi Saket. This is a really exciting project and should coincide with us receiving our Charity Foundation status. We've been rescuing and taking in cats since 2009, but at last we will have a purpose built facility.

Street dogs and cats are part of life here and we are striving to alleviate some of the suffering. We've been working within local communities since 2009, trying to find solutions to dog and cat related problems that allow them, where possible, to stay in their home environment rather than removing them to our shelters. Our Number One priority is sterilization.

Ben’s close friend is the lovely blue eyed Pool.

These are our latest arrivals; three kittens found in a tissue box in the gutter. They were found by one of our workmen on his way into work. They are only about 10 days old so need feeding every few hours for the next few weeks. Volunteer Nan is on hand for this! Then, two blue eyed beauties were dumped outside our dog shelter in Sanpatong along with their very friendly mommy and a black sister. They will be ready for adoption at the end of May.

We have wonderful, friendly cats and kittens available for adoption. Kittens are gorgeous, it's agreed! But many of our residents are older cats who are so friendly, we can only imagine that they are pet cats who've been dumped. They really do deserve a second chance. Take Ben, a very pretty calico girl about a year old, dumped at Warorot market. She's one of the friendliest cats I've met, yet because she's a little older, is overlooked for adoption. She's got lots of energy and so much love to give. She gets on great with the other cats so you needn't be restricted to just one cat. Her close friend is Pool, a beautiful blue eyed girl rescued after a bike accident. She has made a good recovery from a broken leg but would do best in a quiet residential area. Pool is roughly one year old too. Call K. Fon 081 638 2105 (Thai & English) or Gilly 0871 89 1623 (English) For an appointment. Email: [email protected]

We need donations to continue our rescue work. We welcome gifts of food, cat litter, bedding, and toys too! Open House Sundays! Once our shelter is finished we are going to have open house every Sunday! Watch out for details!

Sweet, good natured girl looking for a forever home!

Hi, I'm Callie. I'm between 1 to 2 years old with a beautiful short chocolate coat. I get along well with other dogs, and I love attention from people too. I'm a very sweet, good-natured girl--can I come live with you? I've had all of my shots, and I'm spayed so you don't even have to worry about puppies! You can meet me by contacting the Care for Dogs shelter at: 084 752 5255 (English), 086 913 8701 (Thai) or via email at: [email protected] Or visit our website at for more information.

Bunny Luv

Bunny Luv was set up in 2010 to help rescue the many rabbits people buy as pets and then neglect or abandon.

Bunny Luv is a non-profit rabbit sanctuary in Chiang Mai. There, rabbits have been rescued from terrible and often life-threatening conditions.

Most often these rabbits have been purchased and then left in cages to become ill, mainly from neglect, as people do not realize they need proper nutrition and exercise to maintain a healthy life. At Bunny Luv the first thing done is to bring them back to optimal health by freeing them from a cage, are then given any medical attention that is needed, and finally to be cared for with compassion by socializing them with people and other rabbits.

When these rabbits are ready for their new lives, they are adopted into caring homes with a suitable environment. This includes a safe, clean outdoor area with room for activity and nutritious food, including plenty of fresh water. Rabbits can have a long life span and will live a long and happy life when looked after with proper care. They are very gentle animals and bring endless joy to their human friends.

If you are interested in the welfare of rabbits in need, would like to adopt or help monetarily, please contact via email form on the website

Super furry animal!

Duk Dik is an adorable medium sized male with a gorgeous cream coat. He's a good-natured fellow who is very affectionate with adults and other dogs, although he would probably be best in a home without small children. He would be a wonderful addition to the right home, especially one with a secure fence as he likes to chase bicycles. If you'd like to meet him, please contact the Care for Dogs shelter at: 084 752 5255 (English), 086 913 8701 (Thai) or email [email protected]  Or visit our website at for more information.

Charlie boy

This gorgeous young fellow is around 2 years old. He's a sweetheart, but quite shy at first--so he's looking for that special someone who has the time and patience to help him to trust people. He is a medium size with a short easy coat. If you'd like to meet him, please contact the Care for Dogs shelter at: 084 752 5255 (English), 086 913 8701 (Thai) or email [email protected] Or visit our website at for more information.
