When Potato got her wheels 2

Meet Potato, a tiny, crippled puppy with a deformed spine, abandoned at a temple in Thailand.

And Mack is grateful for every moment. I was horrified to learn how Mack’s former ‘owner’ mercilessly abused him. He is a sweet, big-hearted […]

Dumped under the cover of darkness, Cracotte was a frightened puppy, left in agony from an angry, gaping wound. Sometimes it is impossible to know an abandoned dog’s past, but without your support we can all too easily predict their future. The remote area of Thailand where Cracotte was rescued is just hours from the […]
