Soi Dog USA's mission is to improve the welfare of dogs and cats in Asia, resulting in better lives for both the animal and human communities, to create a society without homeless animals, and to ultimately end animal cruelty. Our organization was established in 2003 in Phuket, Thailand, to help the street dogs and cats who had no-one else to care for them. Thousands of strays roamed the island, with the numbers growing alarmingly due to a lack of spay and neuter programmes to control the population. We were created to provide a humane and sustainable solution to managing the stray population and to address their medical needs.
