Many thanks to those of you who have helped dog’s like Pearl and Humphrey by donating towards securing the future of the Soi Dog shelter. Progress is being made but there is still a long way to go and additional funds must be raised urgently.
Pearl was rescued after having acid thrown on her left flank. Suffering severe burns she was taken to Soi Dog where she received immediate emergency treatment and underwent several weeks of ongoing care. Without the shelter Pearl would not have survived and would have suffered a painful and needless death.
The importance of your help is best described in the words of Pearl’s new father, Steen:
I am the grateful one and I am thanking all you wonderful people ever so much again for making the biggest difference, by saving wonderful beings lives and preventing future tragedies in all kinds of ways, raising funds, treating and caring for all kinds of animals – tiny or big, beautiful and ugly, wild as well as breeds, created by us to be of use or joy to us, but forgotten by each and every one of us… except by YOU people! So: Thank YOU! I am truly grateful and I’ll invest all of it in Pearl – never again shall she suffer, never again be let down. She is such an uncomplicated and clever, well balanced being, with an aura of peace and calmness about her that affects everyone around her. She is strong, very strong.
Pearl, sometimes we have to go through terrible things in life before they become good and life wonderful again.
Thank you Soi Dog for not giving up on her and changing the impossible into this great possibility that turned into her and my reality!
Pearl When Rescued And Later In Denmark
Without the Soi Dog shelter Steen’s story would never have been written. Your help is urgently needed today to allow more dogs like Pearl to be saved! The remaining shelter land must be paid for by October of this year or the future of Soi Dog is in serious trouble as much of the shelters critical care facilities are located there.
Your one time donation of $75 today will go towards securing 3 square meters of the shelter land. A monthly gift by you today of just $25 will go towards securing a meter of the land every month.
Your help today is particularly important: as mentioned in my previous letter to you a long time benefactor of Soi Dog has offered to match your donation dollar for dollar (up to a total of $66,000) – effectively doubling your donation! If this match is met in full we will be very close to meeting the goal.
P.S. You can also help the dogs and cats secure their home by forwarding this email along to friends and family who are animal lovers.
Any funds raised past the amount required to purchase the land will go towards much needed improvement of shelter facilities particularly quarantine in light of the recent distemper outbreak.
