Thank you for visiting!

Here at Baan Unrak we aim to help ALL animals in any way we can.

 Thai Animal Sanctuary was founded by Gemma Ashford in 2007 and is dependent on private donations. From caring for a few local street dogs, we now have a sanctuary and veterinary clinic, the only one serving this remote part of Kanchanaburi province. Work involves the health care and population control of many animals. Gemma Ashford …

 

Baan Unrak Animal Sanctuary Thailand Calling anybody RUSSIAN to help us with a dog flight with Aeroflot. The dog is flying from Bangkok to Amsterdam, but the airline regulations state that we need this: "A certificate from one of the twoSee More licensed Moscow breeding clubs,SKOR or RKF, stating that the animal presents no breeding value. Certificates obtained from any other club may result in delays at customs." It seems ridiculous as our dog is neutered but can anybody help us to obtain this certificate asap???See Less23.07.2015 at 10:14 amLike

Baan Unrak Animal Sanctuary Thailand Thanks to our UK fundraising team for this and the other fundraisers we completed in July. Rod, Jo, Valerie and Tiffany all lent their amazing support to help us raise nearly £500 for the combined showsSee More at Bromley High, Chatterton Village Fete and here at Foal Farm. Running the sanctuary is a mammoth task now we have 70 wonderful animals in care. The team in Thailand are amazing, but it costs approximately £20,000 a year to keep the sanctuary going. Many of you have donated and do donate regularly and we cannot do without you, but we need more help, so everything that you can do, to both raise awareness and raise funds is always, deeply, deeply appreciated.See Less

Stephanie Bates Amazing work!!20.07.2015 at 07:12 pm1Michael Broadley Sorry,i do apologise...I knew I made the mistake once I had sent it....I remember visiting Sangkhlaburi in 1988.I often visit each year,i am aware of the good work that you do.But really to me,that money could be better spent..I just hope that with the new Bakery,as well as the new devolpment below Baan Uraak,please leave some space for the needy who"s home is Sangkhlaburi..Where will you draw the line ?.20.07.2015 at 09:02 pmview 3 more commentsBaan Unrak Animal Sanctuary Thailand There are approximately twenty NGO's helping Burmese refugees in Sangklaburi. The reason Gemma started looking after the dogs is because she was encouraged to do so by our sister organisation which cares for over a hundred orphans and families and educates close to two hundred children on a daily basis. None of this work would be possible without help from donations by individuals and companies. Treating street dogs for disease and controlling there populations performs a public service, which is why we also get support from the local council, who commissioned the foundations for our new clinic back in 2012.20.07.2015 at 10:45 pmStephanie Bates I'm glad there are people like you in the world, who help poor defenceless animals who have no voice, I hope you raise lots of funds for a fantastic cause!20.07.2015 at 10:52 pmBaan Unrak Animal Sanctuary Thailand http://www.solitarywanderer.com/2015/07/thai-animal-sanctuary/21.07.2015 at 12:03 am

Baan Unrak Animal Sanctuary Thailand I am very sad to have to write news that Ginger was put to sleep yesterday. He was the 3rd dog of the sanctuary. I found him at the market with serious wounds thought to be from being dragged by a carSee More and from Scabies.
Once he had recovered, he came everywhere with me. It’s no exaggeration to say that he made my very difficult life there bearable. For four and a half years, I had no volunteers and no help, but Ginger was always by my side. He saved me from being raped, he stopped an electrical fire that would have almost certainly destroyed the sanctuary, myself and the animals, he came on the motorbike to treat sick animals, where he would patiently wait outside, he also accompanied me on the tiresome trip to Kanchanaburi vet (4 hours away) where we would take really sick animals and to the visa office there where I used to renew my visa.
He was well known and well loved my many volunteers too as he was so friendly, so talkative and so independent.
Regretfully too, he had a difficult life at the hands of humans. He was beaten- twice before my eyes at the market. One beating with a metal rod on the spine caused him to have a slipped disk. I feel deeply sorry not to have prevented it and to have left him at the sanctuary when I had to come back to the UK to raise funds. It was stressful to leave the animals and against my better judgement, especially when I found out later that Ginger had spent weeks walking from place to place, where he knew I might be, looking for me but money was running out and I felt that I had no choice.
Most of all, I feel sad that I didn’t notice his kidney problems sooner.
My only consolation is that he lived a short but happy life in England with my mum and Fleater- another one of our rescues.
Ginger- I love you and I feel that a part of me has died with you. Gemma. xSee Less
