In July 2014, Dr. Sam and his wife Kuhn O headed out to Koh Pratong, a small island community of the coast near Ban Nam Khem. These island communities have no vet services available yet they do have a dog problem.
Coordnated by Amanda with the assistance of a local resort, the villages were informed of what would be available over the 2 days.
We would like to also gratefully acknowledge the help and support from Valerie from Golden Buddha Resort. She was responsible bringing the dog problems on Koh Pratong to our attention. She also raised money for the project and assisted Dr. Sam while he was there. Thank you very much for your care and support of both us and your community.
According to Dr. Sam, it was an incredible turnout of people with their animals but unfortunately due to time restrictions, we had to turn some of them away.
August saw Dr. Sam head to Koh Payam, an island off the coast of Ranong, where he spent two days working with the locals.
Coordinated by Fiona and with the help of Nara, Dr. Sam was able to sterilize 26 dogs and cats in just under two days.
Again, we had to turn people away as we simply ran both out of time and out of medications !!!!
Due to the overwhelming response from the local people Dr. Sam will return to Koh Payam on 13 & 14th December to conduct another 2 day mobile clinic.
