The next chapter for 2 little dogs - from Thailand to Edinburgh

After over 100 of you followed Heather Bacon and Hayley Walter's feedback report last week, after they arrived at the Soi Dog Foundation in Thailand, we thought you might like to know more about the work they are doing.

With humidity making working and sleeping uncomfortable, the girls have been working solidly on operating those needing surgery and providing food, comfort and cuddles to those who are recovering from the awful treatment they were subjected to. In recent days, they have gained enough trust with the community to be able to euthanise several dogs with severe disease, which is a huge relief. 

And thanks to mass vaccination, the daily mortality rates have reduced from 30 dogs per day at their arrival to approx 2 dogs per day now, so they're lucky to be leaving the dogs in good shape but many still desperately need help. 

Whilst the girls 'holiday' has come to an end and they head back to Scotland, they can leave knowing that their efforts made a huge difference to hundreds of dogs - especially two little ones!

Yes - following hot on their heels, and coming back to Edinburgh are Stewart (Hayley's light coloured dog) and Mothi (Heather's dark coloured dog)....and looking at the photos I think both dogs are delighted to be heading to Scotland!

We will definitely report on how Stewart and Mothi settle in, once they are through quarantine and settled in Scotland!
