thank you for your compassion. It breaks my heart too. Happily she is very happy with us but lonely as I can't let her out to play with the other puppies until she's fully vaccinated in 2 more weeks. She's such a sweetheart.

Thank God I never read the comments after I've posted something about a dog...or anything else for that matter. Happily we got the lovely dog adopted to a Thai dog lover and she's very happy

@ dogsdinner

It's really heart-warming to know that, having rescued the beautiful dog that was so heartlessly abandoned on the beach in October 2013, you have found a dog lover (whatever their nationality) to adopt her, and that she is very happy.

Like you, I find it truly upsetting that too many people are totally devoid of compassion and responsibility for those it is, at least, our moral duty to aim to protect, be they vulnerable human beings, animals or other forms of life. So I can understand your reluctance to read comments in response to your posts in the expectation of the habitual inanities from such people ...

However, I noticed that by the time the comments on this thread had fizzled out at the end of October last year, there had been some 1,250 viewings, and I cannot believe (nor do I wish to ...) that all of them were by dog haters! Rather, I prefer to think that
mindless comments can serve to motivate more high-minded, compassionate and generous people to rally round in solidarity to help you and your small team of volunteers in some way to alleviate the suffering of all the dogs you tirelessly rescue.

This would seem to have been the case, at least in part, according to your observations last November that:
- “One major advance was a free neutering clinic organised by the local council on Thursday. The first ever and it was attended by locals bringing cats and dogs. It wasn't advertised very well so let's hope there will be a second one when we can get our adult puppies neutered for free.”
Wonderful news, and congratulations to the Bang Saphan authorities (including the vet and any sponsors) on their admirable initiative, which will hopefully be a regular and well-advertised event.
- With respect to the dog that had been run over by a truck and would doubtless have died from her dreadful injuries had you not rushed her to the veterinary hospital in Hua Hin, where she received excellent treatment, following your appeal to meet the cost of her treatment you wrote:
“... we have reached our target of [X] pounds. In the six years I have been running Headrock Dogs Rescue in Bang Saphan we have never had such a wonderful response.”
Fantastic news too, and it's so good to know that, after two months in hospital, she is now well and back on at least three of her feet – what a character she is and what wonderful people you are at HDR.

Still doesn't get it...There are very few "dog haters" in BS. Most people who live here have adopted at least one dog. The problem is that there are many more dogs than can be accommodated, and some of them are dangerous. People want dog control. That isn't hatred. In fact it's the opposite. That's all I'm going to say on the thread forever.

Cute dog. Perhaps the previous owners were afraid you wouldn't accept the dog, or you'd give them a moral lecture for abandoning it, so they felt they'd better put it in a bag at your doorstep and run away. People fear the avenging wrath of "dogsdinner"! (so that's my theory why the bag cruelty was necessary).

You might try to make a New Year's resolution to be more accepting of the weakness of Humankind. Try to extend some of your understanding and compassion for dogs to your fellow humans. They're not as bad as you make them out. We're all just trying to get by, just like the dogs.

PS: My friend just adopted one of your animals and is in love with it. Thanks!

Admin edit: all the abandoned dog topics have been merged into one and renamed appropriately, we don't need a new thread for every dog, thanks.

Or perhaps create a new website for each dog...

Aaaaaachoum! Ooh, please excuse me, but I'm allergic to people who transform the words of others to make trumped-up affirmations …

As YoursTruly has announced that he has definitively left this thread it is pointless asking him where and when I have ever said that most of the residents of Bang Saphan are dog-haters, so I will simply say how sad it is that he, having himself missed the point, appears to prefer to make wild insinuations (whether invented or based on malicious gossip) instead of celebrating the positive actions that have occurred (following the original thread initiated by “dogsdinner” on the dog abandoned on the beach in October last year) to, precisely, help reduce the number of unwanted dogs (i.e. the first free neutering event initiated by the Bang Saphan authorities last November), as well as the exceptional support (at a time when funds were depleted) given to the work of a few admirable and dedicated people at HDR to alleviate the suffering of the numerous dogs/puppies that are continually being so cruelly dumped, abandoned, neglected or injured.

I nevertheless wish him well and hope that his social life in Bang Saphan will not be further compromised by his own allergy - to dogs - following the adoption of a dog by one of his friends … Hopefully, little Nong Mae, whose innocent eyes are in stark contrast to the guilt that should haunt the person who dumped her like garbage, will also soon have the luck of finding a true dog-loving home, together with all the other pups and dogs rescued by HDR.

Bye bye YT – I'm off to find a handkerchief!

Abandoned dogs and puppies now available for adoption

Post by dogsdinner » 12 Feb 2014 17:45

Since the New Year we have had one puppy dumped outside our house in a sack tied at the top. She must have been there since very early morning and we found her just as the sun was going to hit full on the sack. She was terrified. 2 weeks later we had another older puppy dumped in a sack also tied at the top and she was terrified too. Is this the latest method of abandoning puppies that people no longer want? Don't answer that it's a rhetorical question. Both these puppies together with a couple of others abandoned on the road and a lovely dog abandoned on the beach are now in great health, fully vaccinated and neutered and ready for kind and caring people to adopt them. This year we've had over 40 tiny puppies dumped on the busy road outside Wat Tam Ma Rong where we have a puppy pen. Happily, many of them have been adopted together with some we've taken to Tuesday Talat Nat market. These lovely puppies and dog urgently need loving homes. (Apologies, pics are in reverse order!)


Siriporn is a poodle mix who was brought to us as a tiny puppy about 3 weeks old. She was adopted but it was a bad adoption and we got her back. Siriporn is about 5 months old and full of energy and loves to play with her Teddy Bear. She's very friendly and affectionate and would make a great family pet. Siriporn has been neutered and is fully vaccinated.

Hong How
is about 5 years old and was abandoned on the beach. She's a very quiet and affectionate dog who has had a hard life. She runs away if she sees a broom which means she's often been hit with one. Hong How has been neutered and vaccinated and would make a wonderful pet to an older couple or person.

Nong Mae
was found outside our Centre in a tied sack on New Year's Day. We don't know how long the poor little puppy had been there but she was terrified. Nong Mae is a very pretty very fat puppy about 3.5 months old who loves to play with any dog, puppy or human. She is very friendly and affectionate and would make a wonderful family pet. Nong Mae will be a short legged dog so would be good for someone who lives in a built up area although she loves to run. Nong Mae has had both her combine vaccinations but she's not yet neutered.

Oradee
was found outside our Centre also in a tied sack about 6 weeks ago. She's a very pretty puppy who has Husky like colouring and is about 5 months old . Oradee is also very affectionate and loves to play so would make a great family pet. She is neutered and has had both her combine vaccinations.

Mettani and Varitta
are two pretty 5 month old sisters who are devoted to each other. Varitta is a bit shy at first but Mettani is very friendly. They are both very lively and love to play and need an owner who is gentle and quiet. Both puppies are neutered and with one remaining rabies vaccination.

Thank you for your kind words of support Santi-C. It's good to know that there is at least one person who reads our posts in a positive manner. You might like to know that in the last 2 days we've had 3 of the puppies adopted. All to Thais. Mettanee and Varita have gone to a large farm at the back of Bang Saphan and Oradee will be delivered to her new home in Bang Saphan Noi on Sunday.

Huge hugs to all at Headrock Dogs Rescue, dear "dogsdinner", including, of course, to all our canine friends. Wonderful news for Oradee, Mettani and Varita. Hopefully, on this Makha Bucha day, many kind folks will be inspired to adopt adorable little Nong Mae, lovely Hong How and Siriporn, as well as all the other lovely dogs that are still waiting for their love and hugs.

@ « dogsdinner »

What is my support for you and your work compared to that of His Majesty the King? In case you missed it, your heart will doubtless be warmed by this article in the Bangkok Post on 13.2.2014: http://www.bangkokpost.com/breakingnews ... gs-shelter

Well done Headrock. We have a similar problem in my village in CM so we took some action. Entering our village, which is around 500 acres, we have a large field bordered by long grass ,a klong and many trees.Its been for years a dumping ground for those lovely people who decided that the novelty of owning and caring for dog was over. Many residents over the years have fed the dogs and kept them alive.The problem is of course they bred and numbers increased despite the fact that some people poisoned a few. Last month we formed a group of residents,got some donations ,purchased some cages ,food ,set up a feeding point, 4 pm every day, and gradually got the dogs to feel confident and eat out of our hands. When the dogs are finally coaxed into a cage they are taken to a local "Care for Dogs" facility and sterilised.

The problem doesn't end there though finding homes, as Headrock will know, is very difficult but at least the dogs can't multiply within their own group and create a bigger problem. Not one single dog is aggressive,just timid. Dogs don't create the problem ,humans do.
