The shelter visit is a moving experience that many walk away from feeling enriched to be able to have the chance to help the many dogs and cats that badly need support to continue their care.
For many years Tongsai Bay has supported the Dog and Cat Rescue Samui Foundation financially and with donated equipment, including a minivan which is frequently used. As of January 2013 the shelter houses approximately 350 dogs and 130 cats – many of which are unlikely to find a home. Donations and sponsorship are badly needed to ensure the continuation of this great cause that has been rescuing, medicinally treating, relocating and housing Koh Samui homeless dogs and cats since 1999. Donations support the care and housing of many cats and dogs, and the 18 person staff, including a veterinarian. Guests staying at The Tongsai Bay that would like to sponsor a dog or cat will be taken by private car and driver to the Baan Taling Nam Shelter which is a 50 minute drive around the island of Koh Samui. When at the Shelter we welcome our guests to meet dogs or cats that require sponsorship and to discover which ones they have special bond with. Sponsorship of an animal is 20 Euros per month and your sponsorship will be recognized on their website next to a photo and the story of the animal you have sponsored.Founders of the Foundation are of German origin but live on site with the dogs and cats at the Koh Samui Chewang location and have also established accounts in Germany to accept donations. All donations are tax deductible in Germany.
