Volunteer to Help Soi Dog Angels!
Soi Dog Angels need volunteers, both in Thailand and overseas to help the dogs of Thailand.
Learn how you can get involved here in Ban Chang or in your own country.
The primary role of a volunteer with us in Ban Chang is to socialise with the dogs and puppies. With training, learn how to bring them to good health by identifying those in need. With our assistance learning which dogs need to be brought to veterinary care, applying correct medication, feeding a good diet and assisting in the sterilisation programme.
For dogs to be adopted into homes, it is essential to teach them to trust people. All of our dogs are street dogs that have never been indoors and need to learn to feel comfortable around people. Socialisation is especially important for shy animals and those who have been abused. Many adopters say their new companions are very friendly and comfortable with them, even as soon as they arrive from Thailand – this is because of volunteers.
We strongly encourage volunteers to spend an afternoon or morning once a week with us for a month. When volunteers stay for at least a month, they build close relationships with the animals and can see them become more bonded to people. We particularly need volunteers who enjoy giving tours and talking with visitors.
Many of our volunteers fall in love with one of the dogs and adopt them. If you can give a loving home to an animal in need, you might meet your new best friend at Soi Dog Angels!
Please email [email protected] for more information about volunteering with us and email us again a couple days before you come to tell us what day and time you will arrive.
You can help a dog travel from Thailand to go to its forever home! Learn how you can be a flight volunteer when you fly from Thailand back to your home country.

You may also choose to raise funds for a specific mission or do a general fundraiser in support of the dogs of Thailand. You can do a simple fundraiser or use an upcoming activity or event. Many Soi Dog supporters raise funds by:
- Running a marathon or participating in another sporting event
- Selling homemade cookies
- “Giving up” their birthday and asking their birthday and asking friends and family to make a donation in lieu of a gift
- Establishing a virtual wedding registry with wedding gifts given in the form of donations
- Or most often simply telling Soi Dog’s story and asking friends and family to join in helping the dogs.
