is now

To better serve our animal-loving community as we move into the future, we plan to expand our offering. And in the process, we thought a name change was in order is now

"Cuddly" is how we feel about animals and it's how animals make us feel. That being said, while there are many upcoming changes, our mission remains the same. We aim to help animals around the world live better lives through innovation, community, and kindness. Thank you for being a part of our movement and, now, the family.

Help Save Mercy's Life

  • Breed: Thai Ridgeback
  • Name: Mercy
  • Color: Brown
  • Size: Medium
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: Adult

$315.00 raised of $500.00

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! 

Updates

  • Since we found Mercy she has been on a series of medication including blood supplements, Doxy antibiotics and continuous deworming and NexGard SP treatments.


    She has started her complete vaccinations and her most recent blood test shows she is close to being back to full health, with another weeks antibiotics, and will next week be taken in for spaying. 


    Mercy now has a new friend and rescue buddy “Bob” at VetVans founder, Jazmin's house, where she is loved and safe. With some time, love and attention Mercy has become a happy, healthy, playful dog. She brings smiles to everyone that meets her and everyday her confidence continues to grow. She is an absolutely beautiful, loving dog and we are so glad to have been able to give her another chance at life. She is a pleasure to have around!


    A HUGE THANK YOU to those involved in helping with Mercy's progress. Without you this astonishing progress wouldn't have been possible! 


    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! From Mercy, Jazmin & VetVan!

    July 20, 2018


  • Mercy has already been given a series of medication including NexGard Spectra, Ivermectin and deworming. She is currently eating 2 meals per day of Royal Canin Dermacomfort (a generous donation) along with wet dog meat, Doxy antibiotics and (FBC) blood supplements. 


    As soon as she is stronger we will get her in for vaccinations and in the coming months, spaying.


    We have already had enquiries about possible adoptions abroad but for the time being Mercy will stay with us to get the treatment she needs to be a happy, healthy dog again.
