The Dog and Cat Rescue Samui Foundation is a non-profit organisation that takes care of abandoned street dogs and cats. Although many people find Koh Samui to be a picture-perfect paradise, it’s not that friendly an environment if you are a stray animal.
For this reason, the people behind the foundation have started to take the initiative to ensure that these animals get the care that they need.

With the help of their friends, they eventually opened in April 1999 with a small clinic located at the end of Chaweng Road. Because of them, they have been able to provide the island’s dogs and cat with professional veterinary attention and prevent the death of more animals.
Thanks to the help of generous donations, they have opened a new branch of the Dog and Cat Rescue Samui Foundation in another location at Taling Ngam. Today, they can now offer a wide range of treatment to dogs and cats including injections for rabies, sterilisation by spaying or castration, and medications for mange, worms, or any injury or sickness. In doing so, not only are the animals given a second chance at life, but the people living in Koh Samui can also worry less about the dangers of being exposed to these animals.
If you feel inclined to help the volunteers and doctors, visitors are encouraged to make a donation which goes a long way in helping the animals while keeping Samui safe.
