The allocated 1 Rai of land given by the municipality for Falko’s dogs.
For many years the street dogs in the Pattaya region of Thailand have been helped by a retired German man – Falko Duwe.
Now Falko needs YOUR help!
Falko’s heart is huge. He has cared for the street dogs without any government support, all expenses are paid from his own savings and donations that he receives from animal lovers around the city. He works day and night to feed the dogs, treat them, get them sterilized,etc..he does all he can to make the lives of these gentle creatures a bit better.
He has been taking care of 50 dogs at his home for years and his friend’s house has another 50. He feeds & treats another 50-60 dogs around the city every day.
Unfortunately 2 weeks agao Falko receved a visit from the sub-district administration of Pattaya, telling him that he would have to remove the dogs as soon as possible. If he failed to do so by April, the city’s dog catchers will remove them, which would be a disaster.
A few days ago the Council decided to allocate 1 rai of land to Falko for his dogs. Donations have been received to build a perimeter fence and some basic shade structures for the 100 dogs which will need to move there.
What is desperately needed is a basic kitchen facility on the land where a water tank can be erected and the dog’s food prepared. The cost for this is estimated to be approx US$1400.
This new area for the dogs is far from ideal and will only provide basic faciliites. We feel terrible for the dogs who lived happily at Falko’s home who now have to move to a piece of bare land.
Your donations will improve the conditions for these dogs and help build a kitchen area to cook their food & provide fresh water.
Please consider sending a donation however small. They really need your help. Thank you.
