“Thank you for saving us! Woof, woof!”

Helping Dogs in Need In Thailand

I first “met” zoologist, author, and photographer Nola Lee Kelsey after reading her book The Voluntary Traveler. I don’t remember how it happened, but I’m pretty sure I emailed her a question about the book and we ended up as Facebook friends in December 2011. Since we connected, I have been seeing Nola’s regular posts about the animal tourism industry (especially elephants and tigers) and about all of the animals (usually dogs, sometimes cats) she helps on a regular basis in her new home country of Thailand. Nola is from the United States, but has been living in Thailand for the last six years, most recently in Bang Saphan, an ocean town about four hours south of Bangkok.

 

Nola herself has six dogs, all rescues. There is Flipper, a “pseudo Westie” from Lebanon, and Henry, who is thought to be an AussiePoo, both from the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah, where she spent some time working as a Dog Caregiver. In Thailand, she adopted two dogs (Shaggy and Cupid) from Care for Dogs, in Chiang Mai, where she was the volunteer coordinator. Next came Trixie, a “microscopic yet sassy Shih Tzu” who was adopted from Hand to Paw in Mae Rim. The most recent addition, Chance, had been dumped in the streets in Bang Saphan and didn’t understand he should stay away from cars.

It’s so great to see how this zoologist is helping dogs in need in Thailand. There is never a shortage of dogs who need to be rescued, and this woman is making a big difference there.
