Puppies for adoption

Hope for Strays has been caring for a new litter of puppies. There are 6 in all and all of them are female. The puppies are now 7 weeks old and have received their first vaccination. Next week they will receive their second vaccination and will be moved to the shelter.

We have been feeding them and their mother since shortly after they were born. We hope this process has allowed us to build enough trust with the mother to be able to catch her and take her to the vet and have her spayed so she produces no more puppies. In the past 18 months we have sterilized about 200 dogs. The adult dogs are always a problem to catch and bring in. They are very wary of people.

We do not really have room for six more little puppies and we are urging anyone who is interested in adopting one of these lovely little dogs to contact us. The mother is not a very big dog, somewhat smaller than the average we see so we would expect these to be of a similar size when fully grown. If you are interested in adopting one of these puppies when they reach two months old the please contact us at 0891588345.

Looking for a good home

Hope for Strays Foundation was advised that a litter of 5 puppies was at risk in the Nongprue area. The local people wanted the dogs removed because they were digging in their garden. We moved two into our shelter but left the other three there in an attempt to catch the mother and have her spayed. Unfortunately, that didn’t work out well. The mother, like a number of others we have tried to catch, disappears every time anyone shows up. They become phantoms, always out of range and usually out of sight.

The puppies, who are about 4 months old, have now had all of their vaccinations and are in excellent health. There are three females and 2 males. They should be medium sized dogs when full grown and get along well with other dogs.

As always, we are trying to find a home for these puppies. If you are interested in adopting one of these puppies or would like to see the other dogs we have available for adoption please contact us at or by phone at 0891588345.

Meet Leo

Hope for Strays

Meet Leo. He is a one year old who survived distemper. This horrible disease has caused serious damage to his nervous system. On a good day he can walk about 10 meters before he falls. Most days he spends just lying on the floor, shaking. He has to take medication daily or he will suffer from epileptic seizures. He is a sweet little dog who tries so hard to socialize with the other dogs but can’t because he has so little control of his body.

Distemper is one of the canine diseases that every dog, and particularly puppy, should be vaccinated against. The normal recommendation is for puppies to have series of 2 to 3 injections of a multi-vaccine that covers contagious canine diseases including Canine Distemper Virus, Canine Hepatitis, Adenovirus Cough (kennel cough), Parainfluenza, Parvovirus and Coronavirus. All of these can be fatal to unvaccinated puppies and are very easily transmitted between animals. Parvovirus, for example, is carried in the animal’s stool. It can survive on the ground for months under certain conditions. Distemper is transmitted through the air, or by direct contact between animals. As these are viruses there is no cure and both can be fatal even with medical treatment.

All dogs should also have a rabies vaccination. Rabies is not only a killer of dogs but also of people. All dogs should have rabies booster vaccinations every year.

Please check with your vet and be sure to vaccinate your dogs so none of them end up like Leo. The Hope for Strays Foundation, and many other organizations around the area make sure that every dog we come in contact with is vaccinated, at least for rabies. This protects not only the dogs but also the people of Pattaya. If you are interested in giving Leo a home or would like to see the other dogs we have for adoption, please contact us at hopeforstrays .org or at 0891588345
