Dog Rescue and Veterinary Care

If you cannot find the information you need in this section, please contact us directly at coordinator@rescue-paws.org and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. Our operating hours are Monday to Friday, from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm (UTC+7).

For any medical concerns, we would advise that you take the animal to a local veterinary practice with correct facilities and resources to conduct emergency procedures and animal care. We are not a veterinary clinic or rescue centre, so bringing dogs to our facility can create additional risks for our animals who are recovering from sterilization, and can additionally deplete the already limited resources that we need to continue our mission.

There's an animal living near my residence who needs care, can you take it back to Rescue P.A.W.S. or do something about it?

Rescue P.A.W.S. is unable to take in injured, abandoned, or stray animals, and the limited space in our kennels is currently taken up by dogs who are going through the sterilization process. Through sterilizing as many dogs as we can in the area, we can reduce the number of stray dogs on the street in the years to come and help alleviate the suffering that comes with overpopulation. This is a big operation for our small team to undergo and, regrettably, we cannot accept any dogs into our care.

Because our resources are limited, we cannot come out to any area of Thailand (even areas that are local to us) to collect or care for dogs. In addition, we cannot care or treat animals that get dropped off at our centre. Bringing sick animals to our centre would jeopardise the health of animals currently in our care. We are a catch and release program that focuses on sterilizations; we do not catch stray dogs for the purpose of adoptions.

If you are worried about the health of a dog, you can take it to a local vet in Hua Hin for necessary care. We would, however, like to remind you that these animals are wild and may be scared of human interaction.

Can you come get this injured/sick animal and take it to the vet?

Rescue P.A.W.S. cannot accept any injured, abandoned, or stray animals, nor can we travel to sick animals. Our team is small and we already have many spay/neuter patients in our care who need our constant attention. Unfortunately, this means that we do not have the resources to come out to injured animals or take them to the vet.

It is important to note that if an animal has a collar it may be owned. Taking a pet without the owner’s permission can get you in serious trouble with the local police. In this case, we would advise that you ask locals to see if the animal belongs to anyone.

Can you collect a litter of puppies?

We are unable to collect or accept litters of puppies. We do not have the room to house extra dogs in our facility.

How much does it cost to sterilize a dog/cat and when can I bring them in for sterilization?

We currently do not offer sterilizations for the public as our sterilization efforts are focused on the packs of dogs we manage within our local area. Please contact a local veterinarian to inquire about sterilizing your dog or cat.

Thank you for your continued support and interest in Rescue P.A.W.S. Thailand.
