A Canadian organization is raising funds to end the suffering of vulnerable stray animals in Canada and Thailand, and you can help by getting out and getting active for a great cause.
Soi Dog Canada is holding its inaugural Mutt March in Richmond on June 2, 2019 to raise awareness and support for the spay/neuter programme in Thailand, and to raise funds for several spay/neuter programs across Canada.
Participants of all ages and their furry friends are welcomed to participate in a 2km or 5km walk, and the event will feature a kids’ corner, pet service vendors, food and four fun dog contests including best dressed dog, ‘waggiest’ tail, best trick, and a prize for the dog and owner that look most alike.
The event will help to address the many stray dogs suffering in areas of Canada by donating a percentage of the funds raised on the day to:
Soi Dog Foundation was established in 2003 in Phuket, Thailand, to help the street dogs and cats who had no one else to care for them, and to provide a humane and sustainable solution to managing the stray population and to address their medical needs.
According to their website, the organization continues to work to end the dog meat trade as well as help spaying and neutering to prevent unwanted puppies and kittens being born into short lives of suffering, along with the rescue, vaccination, medical treatment, sheltering, and adoption of those that cannot be returned to their territory.
Dozens of its rescued dogs have found new homes in Canada.
