The Huayang Dogs Rescue Center Thailand
Visited the rescue center of Warin by sending Ingrid van Bree a well
respected volunteer of Dutch puppy
And suddenly we got a message Ingrid van Bree a volunteer from Dutchy Puppy that she would visit Warin her dog rescue center during her trip to Thailand
After a brief email exchange between me and Ingrid it was agreed and would leave the next day for Huayang
It soon became clear that the beautiful Ingrid, also was a realistic young woman with considerable experience with animals by her training as a veterinary assistant, and since early this year working as a volunteer for Dutchy puppy
After a pleasant day and evening we left next day for Huayang and Ingrid had her first impression of Thailand during the 500 km long drive to the south
when we got to Huayang we met a nervous Warin, who already had busy days preparing for this visit and was constantly in fear that she might not be possible to meet the expectations of Dutchy Puppy
Fortunately Ingrid s got her to ease down and Warin did show Ingrid the rescue kennel where the name plate Dutchy puppy repeatedly emerged as the major sponsor of Huayang
The next day began early for Ingrid who early at 07.30 had been picked up by Warin at her hotel for working with Warin a day in the center ,which already started the activities that night at 03.00 cooking the rice for the dogs
Ingrid felt that this cooking should be done on a more convenient time, and thought the preparation time of 3 hours a looked little long, but after seen a small part of the cooking job Ingrid started to understand that preparing the food for so many dogs actually took a long time as resources and therefore effectiveness in Thailand are very different from a Western country
Also , the cooking here is still done on wood in order to save cost of gas!
Late morning, Ingrid t with Warin and some temporary employees fed the dogs which is quite a spectacle because the dogs often fight each other for the
Food and can be very vicious to be the first to get to the food
Ingrid made at the end of this food festival, rightly the notion that some dogs were not fighting with spirit and skills you need to eat enough and survive into this arena, and that these poor dogs would be better of if they would stay in the Dutchy puppy special care unit until they put on the weight needed!
Ingrid also had a surprise for us in the form of Dutchy puppy T shirts, which quickly became a battle between me and Warin, who would take which T shirt on which Ingrid quickly announced she would not get involved because her job was done which was the distribution of T-shirts to us!
Ingrid s afternoon was spend on feeding the temple dogs and other stray dogs along the road to the temple after which she had a long talk with Warin
Next morning ingrid and me had to say good bye to Warin and left for Banglamung where Ingrid continued her vacation on a mini bus and I was back home again .
All in all, in my opinion a very successful visit from someone with a human face, which really was interested in the project and Warin with some good advice and who was prepared to think adequately about the future of this unique project, and luckily for me had a good sense of humor something important to me in matters where needed perspective!
We thank Ingrid and Dutchy Puppy for their visit and hope that the relationship between Dutchy puppy and Huayang dogs rescue center will strengthen, and that many good projects will follow for the stray dogs in Thailand which can improve expansion of such projects and the necessary
Neuter/spay of stray dogs in this part of the world
