Photos From Soi Dog Foundation's Post


Do you remember Putara, a homeless young male dog we believe got caught in a snare? Sadly, his leg was too damaged to be saved, and our vets had to amputate it. Putara is fine and recovering from the surgery.

Please help desperate, homeless animals like he was by joining the Emergency Response Team now. https://bit.ly/help_putara_soidog

The vast majority of dogs adjust fine to having three legs, and we believe our Putara will be no different. Thank you for helping to save him, and continuing to help countless others like him by being a part of the Emergency Response Team.

If you do not know Putara’s story, here it is.

At only age 2, this poor boy had already faced unimaginable suffering. He suddenly appeared outside a hotel, cowering under a table for shelter from the relentless Thai sun. When staff approached him, he let out a loud cry. It was clear he was too scared to let anyone help him, yet he was in desperate need of medical care.

Deeply concerned, a staff member called Soi Dog Foundation to collect him, and he was rushed to our hospital.

Putara was so petrified and desperate, he tried to bite his rescuers. The pain from the deep wound on his leg and years of neglect and starvation had destroyed any hope of him trusting humans.

Thanks to animal lovers like you, we have been able to help this poor, brave soul. Will you please help us continue to rescue dogs like him? >> https://bit.ly/help_putara_soidog

We will never know for certain what happened to poor Putara, but we suspect he was caught in some sort of trap while scouting the area for food and water.

When Putara arrived, he was immediately sedated and given strong pain killers, but this was not enough to prevent him from injuring the vets who were trying to help him. As a last resort, a muzzle was put on him. Eventually, he calmed down enough to allow our staff to fully evaluate his injuries. Our vets felt he was not strong enough to be put under anesthesia.

Apart from the poor dog being emaciated and dehydrated, the wound on his leg went straight down to the bone, which was fractured. Is it any wonder he was so desperately unhappy?

Putara is alive today thanks to kind, generous people like you. Please give now at https://bit.ly/help_putara_soidog to help animals like him.

Once his initial treatment was complete, Putara let our hospital staff touch him for the first time. He seemed aware he was now in a safe place to recover, with nutritious meals and kind treatment from humans – maybe for the first time ever.

Dogs like Putara have no owners to look after them. They are totally alone in this world. Animal lovers like you are their only hope. Please give today – if you can manage it, a small monthly donation will do so much good for the homeless dogs and cats of Thailand whom we rescue. Currently we have 1,100 in our care.

Thank you. https://bit.ly/help_putara_soidog
