We took part in a guided tour at SoiDog and we sadly had not the possibility for volunteering. At the end of the tour we all were allowed to go to the puppies and this feeling standing between 20 puppies all wanna cuddle you is totally amazing. When you are there in Phuket you need to take this experience; it‘s unique.
The atmosphere is fullfilled with the passion of all the people working there and you immediately slip into this passion. Within a few minutes you feel part of this big family and you can help with even very small things; they will thank you a lot!

Hi Jogofortravel,

Thank You for leaving us this review and sharing your experience with everyone out there.
It is lovely to hear that you enjoyed your time at our shelter in Phuket and you felt part of the bigger cause that Soi Dog Foundation stands for.

It is a shame you were not here for longer to to volunteer but, to ensure that both the dogs and the volunteers get the most out of a volunteer, we need volunteers to stay with us for at least 2 full days.
But, hopefully you will be back next time for longer you can sign up to be a volunteer.

Thank YOU for taking the time to visit us. It means so much to all of us.

Extremely well maintained dog and cat sanctuary. Worth a visit, especially if you are into animal rescue or are looking to adopt. Animals are healthy and well taken care of by staff and volunteers.

Hi Taras,

Thank you very much for visiting us and leaving this review.

All the work carried out had been possible thanks to wonderful supporters like you who believe in alleviating the suffering of vulnerable street animals by rescuing, treating and then adopting or offering life time care.

Please do stay up to date with the most current events at the shelter by signing up for our mailing list and/or following us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and/or YouTube.


We hope to see you again.

What a lovely few hours at soi dogs I had this morning.i first came across soi dogs foundation.on a program that was aired in the U.K. a few months ago. What I saw on tv is nothing compared to real life. It’s amazing to see how far the foundation has come.and the work all the guys and girls put in. Silvia who took us on the tour around soi dogs was lovely and very knowledgeable.and was happy to answer any questions that I asked thanku. After the tour I got to spend sometime with the puppies and cats. Which was amazing. Hold onto ur shorts when hanging out with the puppies u could end up leaving without them.and the cats are more than happy for u to sit on the floor and to be stroked and give them cuddles. I will definitely be back.. xx

Hi Joey8237,

How lovely to hear that you saw the documentary and you decided to stop by for a visit.

Silvia, will be more than delighted knowing that you found the tour both educational and informative.
All of us here pride in the work we do for the animals but, we couldn't have achieved any of this, if it weren't for all the amazing supporters from around the world who help all the animals here.

Thank You for spending time with the pups and kitties too.

Yes, we sure you come back again for another visit or even volunteer.

Hi Amin,

We are so happy you decided to make a turn from the airport and visit our shelter in Mai Khao.

Thank You for this review and reiterating how worthwhile it is, to devote just a few hours of your day to spend time with what we are very proud to call an ethical experience while you are on holiday.

Will pass on your words to Silvia, who will be super happy knowing that she was able to make your visit worthwhile.

Thank You for being a compassionate tourist and supporting the rescued animals of Phuket and Thailand.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday and we hope to see you again soon.

I have been here previously on visits to see the sanctuary, however decided to return as a volunteer which involves walking and socialising the many many dogs. In short, the place does incredible work for homeless, sick or wounded street dogs and cats. Through donations ONLY they have massively expanded the facilities & taken control of sterilisation, but they still need regular donations, adoptions and volunteers for its wellbeing & upkeep. They also fight against the dog meat trade. So truly I urge you to donate, adopt and/or volunteer. Adopting is easier than you think & can be cheaper than buying an animal. You will receive such a warm welcome from all here and you will leave feeling warm inside about the care you have given to these vulnerable four legged animals

Hi victoriagG4858GU,

We are delighted to hear that you decided to return as a volunteer and be a part of the foundation.

Thank you for this heartfelt review and encouraging more people to visit, volunteer, donate, adopt as well as create awareness about Soi Dog's mission.


We are grateful for people like you who help to socialise the dogs and the cats who need enrichment as well as socialising in order to be suitable for adoption.

On behalf of everyone here, Thank You immensely for your time and dedication
