Koh Samui, Thailand ( Website )
While on holiday in Koh Samui, Dusty went to visit the Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation. It was absolutely wonderful to see all the dogs and meet the founder, Brigitte Gomm! The foundation has been running since 1999 and it started with a few dedicated people bringing medical care to the street dogs and cats.
The foundation has two locations and Dusty went to the smaller one. It is a house with a front and back yard. The bigger dogs are located in the front yard and are free to roam the streets. The small dogs are in the house and roam around the backyard. Dusty happened to visit during lunch time so there were some growls going back and forth. After lunch, things calmed down. He played with the pups and asked Brigitte questions about how the foundation started and how she keeps it running. There are hotels around the area which donate food for the dogs to eat. She also relies on donations and a sponsorship program to help feed the pups.
There are so many dogs at the location and they all have such different personalities. Dusty loved visiting and hopes that the dogs continue to receive the love and care Brigitte gives them.
