Pattaya Street Dogs…

My name is Falko Duwe. I have been living in Thailand for over 17 years. I have been working here for many years and retired recently. I have been looking after homeless dogs on the streets of Pattaya since 2008. In spring 2015 I moved to a house with a large garden outside of town. Here I accommodate about 35 foster dogs. My work focuses on sterilization, rescuing dogs, providing medical treatment and finding homes for the foster dogs. In Pattaya there is no official body treating dogs in a proper way and therefore individual effort is necessary to mitigate the suffering of strays in some way.

Apart from providing a home for foster dogs, I look after dogs at a Buddhist temple area very close to a beach, a forty minutes drive from where I live. Currently I’m keeping about 15 dogs there. They came from several different areas in Pattaya and had to learn to live together. All dogs there are spayed or neutered. Some of them I know for more than three years and I look after a couple of them since they were born.

There are around 20 more other dogs I monitor at several locations on Pattayas streets and waste ground areas. Several helpers feed them with food which I provide. Of the 70+ dogs I look after, all bitches are sterilized and almost all males are neutered. I check all these dogs living on the streets regularly for health issues and try to keep them in good shape, in which they basically are except a few who are suffering from demodex mange which is very difficult to cure in some cases.IMG_2696

My financial resources are limited, but what I have to spend I use to look after the dogs under my care. One of my greatest concerns is the rescue of dogs who are in danger of being rounded up to be sent to the city’s detention camp in Plutaluang, 40 km away from Pattaya. A couple of dogs that I have been looking after were already caught by City Hall’s dog catchers, but I was able to rescue them from that place. Three more dogs I took home since they needed acute treatment which they wouldn’t have got there.

Since I receive only a small pension I currently have to rely on my life savings and donations to keep my activities up. Anyone who is interested in my work and requires more information to support my cause please contact Derek. I’ll be more than happy to provide any additional information that may be considered helpful.

Unfortunately, Thai people regularly abandon puppies on the beach or next to the temple and I have to take care of these poor babies as well. Some do survive, some disappear after a while, some I lose to diseases. The ones who survive and live on the beach I have sterilized as well.This temple project is only one of my activities. Altogether I am looking after more than sixty dogs in and around Pattaya. My main expenses are for veterinary care, spaying and neutering since I’m trying to stop the breeding as best as I can. There are still many dogs in my neighborhood who need to be sterilized or treated, but all that requires not only a fair amount of time and effort but money as well. I’m willing to spend time, energy and money to mitigate the suffering of these gentle creatures and if you would help me to cover some of my expenses I would be most grateful. IMG_3372W

      Hello Falko ,

      I saw a dog with a bad wound at the inside of the front upper leg ( elbow ) . It is heavily infected already . The dog is a big street dog and look otherwise healthy . The dog hangs around a restaurant called cafe de beach ( near to cross of 36/ sukhumvit in banglamung .
      Do you know a vet that could treat the dog or help otherwise . I will certainly take care for the costs .

      Thanks and regards

      Chris

      I saw a female dog with a very young puppy on the road from the big Buddha to the beach. I wondered if someone could rescue them . Broke my heart.

      I would really like to make a donation when I visit Pattaya next month.

      I’d prefer to just turn up with some bags of food than just send cash.

      Where in Pattaya can I buy good quantities of dry dog food to bring to you?

    • BELINDA OGLEY

      I like to pay monthly to Falko Duwe for the animals in his care. Hope he has a UK bank account so I can set up an online direct transfer from my bank to his.
      Please advise.

        Hi Belinda, Falko only has a Thai bank account, I can give you details if you want to send direct to him. You can also send to him via his page on our site at http://k9aid.org/pattaya/ , he would be so grateful for any help.
