For those members who haven't heard of the Soi Dog Foundation, it does wonderful work in Thailand rescuing stray dogs and cats. It even gives a refuge for those pets who are very ill and need operations. It is an excellent organisation and deserves support. Even if you can't afford to donate a small amount to help them, then at the very least you could tell your friends about them. Here is the link to their latest newsletter, which describes how they have helped some poor animals who probably would have been euthanised by some shelters, because of the cost of medical treatment:
