6 Recommend Pet Shelters in Thailand

Did you know? In 2017, Thailand had over 820,000 stray dogs and cats. It is also estimated that the number will increase to 1,920,000 in 2027. This number excludes major events like the pandemic, which is a huge motivational factor that drives more people to have pets. Millions are getting abandoned, and it’s hard to comprehend the number of animals who will be born into the streetside, never knowing what a home is. The worst part is, the number will only continue to increase. 

How great would it be if we can save them by adopting from shelters? To help non-profit pet shelters, so they can have more space to rescue other animals that are in need of help.

Are you looking for a new companion? Don’t go browsing breeders just yet, and consider adopting from these 6 recommended pet shelters in Thailand! They’ve got real cute fur babies who need a forever home.
