Regrettably, we are unable to adopt dogs to Canada at this time due to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's (CFIA) measure prohibiting the entry of commercial dogs from countries at high-risk for dog rabies, implemented on September 28, 2022.
This is only applicable to Canada, and adoption enquiries from all other countries remain welcome.
For more information about the ban and how you can help us challenge it, please click here.
The good news is, cats are unaffected! You can continue to register enquiries for cats by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We would like to reassure existing adopters, and those who are exploring the possibility of adopting a dog from Soi Dog in the future, that all animals in Soi Dog’s care are neutered and given all appropriate vaccinations.
For dogs, they include rabies, distemper, parvovirus, adenovirus, heartworm and bordetella. For cats, they include rabies, panleukopenia, herpes virus, calicivirus and leukemia (FeLV).
Dogs and cats made available for adoption, whether to countries abroad or within Thailand, receive a full health check before we promote them. During the time between promotion and completed adoption, they have regular health checks and annual booster vaccinations of the aforementioned, as well as regular broad-spectrum deworming, heartworm prevention and tick & flea prophylaxis.
Adopting your animal to Canada is a very simple process, and we take care of everything! There are no quarantine requirements, which means your animal could potentially travel to you within 3-4 weeks of securing their adoption. Soi Dog charges no adoption fees, and all of our dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Adopters simply need to cover the cost of the travel crate and flight(s).
There are two great options to get your new family member to Canada:
As accompanied baggage with a flight volunteer. Soi Dog works very hard to find flight volunteers willing to bring animals back with them to Canada. We have a very high success rate in doing this to help keep the costs down for the adopter. We are fortunate to have many supporters offering to be flight volunteers.
The final cost will depend on the size of the animal, the airline used and the destination the animal flies to. Our adoptions team will provide you with a quote as part of the adoption process. In some cases, the wait time to secure a flight volunteer can be a month or two. However, rest assured we’ll do all we can to make this happen as fast as possible. Our goal is for your new dog or cat to start their new life with you as soon as possible. When we receive your enquiry we will be able to check the current availability of a flight volunteer to your destination.
Flying by manifested cargo. If you prefer, we can send your new family member to you as manifested cargo. Travelling as manifested cargo has the great advantage that your pet can travel to you quickly and fly at your convenience (i.e. a date and airport of your choosing). Your animal will travel in a comfortable travel crate (with access to water) in a climate-controlled part of the cargo hold. As above, the final cost will depend on the size of the animal, the airline used and the destination the animal flies to. Our adoptions team will provide you with a quote as part of the adoption process.
