This poor girl, now named Mercy, is a Thai Ridgeback who was dumped by her owners. She is in dire condition, starved, infected with blood parasites, worms, ticks, fleas, allergies and demodex. She was dumped in amongst a pack of 10 street dogs who chase her and scare her away from food and the help she really needs.
We have begun medical treatment to help her through recovery but she urgently needs somewhere safe to be bathed, treated and receive medication twice a day. Mercy will need full vaccinations when healthier and spaying in the coming months.
Local shelters are not willing to help board her through recovery and we urgently need funds to transport, feed and medicate her. Mercy is currently located in Laem Mae Phim, Rayong.
We are a non-profit mobile vehicle that does not have facilities to keep animals. More information about our work and mission can be seen below.
Our hearts bleeds for this baby girl. Please help us treat, feed and board her back to full health. She's desperate, in pain and so lost and scared.
Please help us keep Mercy alive, comfortable and stable. With your help we can bring her back to full health and have her living a happy life in no time.
We will keep you updated on her progress and you can follow her story on our Facebook page Facebook.com/VetVanThailand
What VetVan does:
VetVan is a non-profit targeting some of the most unreachable and local areas, as well as busy roads. We travel in our van to TNR (trap neuter return) stray dogs and cats, provide medical care and daily feeding routes. Setting up in local areas and traveling to clinics, we spay and medicate animals in need of our help. We support temples and locals caring for their animals as many of them are unable to afford needed medical care and/or neutering/spaying. We're grateful for the care given to their companions, usually brought in off the streets. We feel it's best to work at the root of the cause and spay locals pets to prevent more unwanted births and stray animals.
We do not have shelter facilities or a clinic. We work with local veterinary clinics and rescue organizations to make a bigger difference, fast.
To all of those willing to help change Mercy's life, we thank you for your compassion!
