Donations Of Veterinary Supplies
Soi Dog is often approached by supporters regarding the donation of supplies and equipment. This is very important to Soi Dog. However some supplies are better sourced in Thailand due to logistics and cost.
Listed below are items which are particularly needed and make sense to source overseas. Should items on this list be available please contact Gregg Tully at: firstname.lastname@example.org. The prices for these items when sourced in Thailand are also noted. 100 Thai Baht (tbt) is approximately $3.10 USD or 2.50 Euros.
If you are traveling to Thailand with medicines, Soi Dog will provide you a letter to carry with you for customs purposes. If doing so please email Khun Pond ( email@example.com ) with the following information:
- your full name.
- a list of the items including quantities.
- where the items are from (country and specific source, by example: Colorado, USA Fremont Veterinary Clinic)
- your date of arrival to Thailand.
Khun Pond will email you a letter (in Thai language) for use when clearing customs. Please allow 7 days for the letter to be emailed to you. Please print two copies of the letter, pack one copy with the supplies and carry the other copy with you.
For items shipped to Soi Dog the customs declaration should read: "Donated expired veterinary supplies for charity. Not for resale."
Soi Dog's mailing address is:
Soi Dog Foundation
167/9 Moo 4, Soi Mai Khao 10,
