Phuket – Reporting a Sick or Injured Dog or Cat During Shelter Hours
Soi Dog Foundation shelter hours are Monday to Friday, 08:00 to 17:00. To report a sick or injured street dog or cat during these hours, email email@example.com or call 076-681-029.
Phuket – Reporting a Sick or Injured Dog or Cat After Shelter Hours (Emergencies Only)
Soi Dog does not operate seven days week, 24 hours a day. However, if you see a sick or injured animal outside of shelter hours whose life you believe is in danger unless it receives immediate, emergency treatment, please call our emergency hotline on 098-927-9698 and they will let you know what you should do.
If we have to refer you to a local vet clinic, it will be one of the clinics listed below. Note that the clinic will not admit any animal until Soi Dog has given them approval to do so, meaning it is vital you call us on the emergency hotline before you take the animal to the clinic.
If the animal is not in immediate danger, please wait until the next working day to call and report the animal. Remember to use the shelter number during normal working hours, not the emergency number.

Bangkok – Reporting a Sick or Injured Dog or Cat
Telephone: 092 468 9353
Soi Dog Foundation does not have a shelter in Bangkok and only has a small clinic for spay/neuter surgeries. We are limited in the medical treatment we can provide in Bangkok but if you see a dog or cat in need of assistance, please call 092 468 9353 or send an email (with photographs, location details, and your contact number) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Soi Dog Bangkok does not have the resources to provide medical treatment outside of clinic hours (Monday to Friday, 8.00am to 5.00pm) but can put you in touch with a pet taxi service and give you details of the closest vet.
A note for visitors to Thailand
The streets of Thailand are home to millions of “soi” (street) dogs and cats. While it may be unusual to see such a large number of stray animals in your home country, these animals are part of the fabric of Thai society. Many of them have been born into a life on the streets or on the beach, and it is the only life they have ever known. Removing their freedom by placing them in a shelter causes them untold misery and, while nothing can beat a real home, it is simply not possible to re-home each and every street dog and cat when we already have hundreds of shelter animals waiting for homes.
Soi Dog Foundation believes that the only truly effective and humane means of reducing the number of street dogs and cats is through spaying and neutering. The island of Phuket where we are based has a large network of people who feed the soi dogs and cats in their communities. Soi Dog Foundation provides many of these people with a regular supply of food but we do not have the resources to collect and shelter every stray animal on the island, nor is it in the animals' best interests to do so.
We would therefore ask that you only call our shelter about animals that need to be spayed or neutered, or those that require medical attention. Sadly, our phone line is always busy and calling about healthy, sterilised street animals that have a regular food source will delay help getting to those that need it.
