Pet Home Care, Animal Welfare Foundation in Kanchanaburi is a protective place for endangered, abandoned, and handicapped animals. It is run under Animal Welfare Foundation, which is for public charity. Pet Home Care helps decrease homeless dog problems, prevent Hydrophobia, and promote humanity toward animals. The foundation has been sustained by kind-hearted donators for 19 years. In 1987, Major General ChamlongSrimuaeng, Bangkok Governor saw that the solution to homeless dog problems in order to control Hydrophobia by killing dogs is not appropriate for Thai Buddhist society. Birth control in dogs and cats to prevent breeding, and Hydrophobia vaccination is a better way out. Someday, the massacre will dwindle, and be finally abolished. A seminar held at Faculty of Veterinary Science, Chulalongkorn University showed that most of the participants agreed. Therefore, the foundation began to look for location, fund, and building materials until Tung-Sri-Kan Foster Home was successfully founded, without using any government expenses. 

The Forster Home had been taking care of dogs, cats, cows, buffalos, sheep, ducks, chickens, geese, and pigs here for 10 years. In 1997, the landlord of Tung-Sri-Kan area where the foundation located, claimed his property back. Therefore, the place was moved to Pet Home Care in Kanchanaburi, which is in Baan Pu-Pra-Du, AmphoeMuang, Kanchanaburi, 27 kilometers away from the city. Currently, it has been looking after 2,500 dogs (100 of them are handicapped), 200 cats, cows, buffalos, and goats. Now, Pet Home Care is undergoing insufficient expenses, opposite to decrease in its income. The expenses include food supply, medicine, and staff allowance. This greatly causes obstacles in helpless animal aid. Normally, pet caretakers will give love to them, especially to dogs, the popular pet among animal lovers. Naturally, dogs are not only lovely, but also loyal and faithful to its owner. Beyond that, it can trigger so much bliss, and grow such soft-heartedness in human mind that can cure illness, such as high blood pressure, and stress as well. Dogs can also drive away people’s loneliness, and watch over your home.

Pet Home Care, Kanchanaburi is therefore the last shelter for those handicapped, homeless, and endangered animals. It is also a great example of human compassion toward all living beings in the world.  As  a merciful person, who supports Pet Home Care’s activities, you can make a merit, and also help express your hospitality that can helpfully run this Pet Home Care to continue its mission, and to benefit human society.
