The Soi Dog Foundation (Soi Dog) is an animal sanctuary based in Phuket, Thailand, that sterilises and re-homes stray dogs and cats.
Every year, Soi Dog spays/neuters and vaccinates tens of thousands of street dogs and cats. Their ongoing project is to bring down the local stray population of Phuket by humane means to practically zero by 2025. Soi Dog also campaigns for an improvement in animal welfare rights across Asia, and helps animals affected by natural disasters.
