Project Title: 
Animal Welfare in Phuket
Project Abstract: 
I am a proponent of leaving the world better than you found it.  I found the Soi Dog Foundation when exploring this idea. Soi Dog is a not-for–profit that seeks to help homeless, neglected and abused animals; end the dog meat trade; and respond to animal welfare emergencies in Thailand.  It wants to be an example for the Asian region on how to humanely reduce unwanted strays through spay/neuter programs and better the living conditions of these animals.
