Rescue Paws is a non-profit organization created by The Global Work & Travel Co. based in Australia, and XploreAsia, based in Thailand. Started in 2013, Rescue Paws aims to first stabilize and then reduce the stray animal population in Thailand over time through vaccinations, sterilization, adoptions, and education to get it to a manageable level. Thailand faces a huge problems with the ever-growing number of stray animals living on the streets, in poor health, and reproducing at an alarming rate.
Rescue Paws’ operation includes a staff of full time employees, volunteer vets and coordinators operating from our headquarters in Hua Hin, a small beach town just south of Bangkok. This is where we have a full kennel and surgery & rehabilitation center. Rescue Paws feeds and closely monitors the medical health of hundreds of stray dogs in the Hua Hin region. Treated animals are tagged, released and monitored as part of our daily routine. Wounded animals are assisted with medical treatment. Rescue Paws also conducts local and international adoptions and raises awareness through educational visits to local schools.
Rescue Paws aims to improve the lives of animals living on the street through providing basic necessities such as food, healthcare, love and attention, and reduce their population over time through sterilizations. The organization started out with the simple goal of going around Hua Hin and giving food to hundreds of stray dogs. From its humble beginnings, the Rescue Paws operation grew to include trained volunteer vets who furthered our capabilities into providing and administering vaccinations, medication, and even surgery and rehabilitation for animals in serious need of help.
Every dog and cat is special and their lives have important value. They provide their human owners with unconditional love and loyalty. Rescue Paws’ vision is to create communities in which dogs and cats live healthy, long lives, and those who are lucky enough to have homes, are given unconditional love and loyalty by their owners. Every dog and cat should be healthy and cared for.
