Maria Ellinor is from Sweden. She came to be Volunteer with us 2 weeks.
We depend on donations and sponsorships to help neglected and abused dogs. For all of the dogs we rescue we medicate, vaccinate, spay & neuter, rehabilitate, socialize, rehome and much, much more. But we can’t do it alone. With your help, we can do better.
Adopt & Foster
As a Foster parent you get to look after a dog or dogs for a timeframe that suits you, knowing that your time, love and care go a long way towards helping the dog and the shelter. The dog gets to learn how to be a domestic dog with someone that loves him or her, and readies them for eventual adoption. To find out more please read our Adoptions & Foster checklist.
Adopting a rescue dog is one of the most rewarding experiences for both the dog and you, the future doggy parent. We will work with you to make sure you find the best dog that suits your lifestyle and family needs. In order to be eligible to adopt you will need to check the TMTRD Adoptions Checklist.
Volunteering at The Man That Rescues Dogs is an unforgettable experience, but you will only take from it what you are willing to put into it. You will be expected to be self sufficient, hard working, patient and willing to learn. The dogs are mostly strays and have experienced hardships that you can only imagine. Some are domesticated dogs that have been mistreated or neglected and require all your love and attention to rehabilitate them and prove to them that their lives will be better. In every case, being a part of this transformation on a large scale is truly life changing.
If you would like to volunteer with us for longer than thirty days you will need to apply for a non-o visa at a consulate outside of Thailand. The documents needed to go along with your visa application will be provided by us for an administration fee of 2000 baht. It is also your responsibility to research the visa and immigration requirements to enter Thailand based on your country of origin or where your passport was issued.
Volunteering at The Man That Rescues Dogs is a life changing experience.
