The Big Give 2023: A lifeline for injured animals in Thailand

The Big Give Christmas Challenge: Every donation is worth double for one week only

The WVS team in Thailand treated over 6,000 animals in 2022, but many more needed our help. Your donation will help buy an Animal Ambulance so our teams can provide urgent care for sick and injured animals that would otherwise not receive the treatment they desperately need.

View our Big Give Christmas Challenge fundraising page here.

For many years the WVS team in Thailand has relied on a single vehicle for transporting rescued animals, catching dogs for humane population control programmes, and running outreach projects to improve animal welfare in the surrounding areas. This truck now costs large amounts in monthly repairs, is unreliable for long distances, and needs to be replaced.

A new Animal Ambulance will enable our team of vets to go into the community, helping more dogs, cats, and other animals who have no owners, or whose owners cannot get them to the clinic. The current truck can then be used for local work, increasing the capacity of the team, and the number of animals that can be helped. Operating two rescue vehicles will also allow us to run more humane population control programmes, helping to improve animal welfare in Chiang Mai and the surrounding area.

There is £9,000 of match funding available. Every donation will help unlock these funds, meaning we can raise up to £18,000 towards this much needed Animal Ambulance!

When to donate: Donations open midday on 28th November 2023 and close midday on 5th December 2023.

Donations must be made via our Big Give webpage to be eligible for the match-funding.
