Overview
More
Guided tours begin at 9:30 am, 11 am, 1:30 pm and 2:30 pm, every day Monday to Friday, and last about 40 minutes. The shelter is closed to visitors on Saturdays and Sundays. Soi Dog Foundation is a registered charity that helps street dogs and stray cats. Visitors are welcome to take a tour of the facilities and meet the hundreds of dogs and dozens of cats, and after the tour you can stay for the day to play with the animals. Rather than a "dog pound," Soi Dog's shelter is an uplifting environment where dogs and cats receive lots of love and high quality care.
