Like all animal rescue charities around the world, the global pandemic has hit us hard. Whilst we’ve been able to continue our rescue and sterilisation work on the ground in Thailand, our adoptions service is currently severely restricted. Bans on international travel have made it increasingly difficult to secure transport opportunities to fly our dogs overseas.
The good news is, we’re still able to kick start our adoption process. But we want to make sure we're giving you realistic expectations of the current timeframes, to avoid any disappointment. We anticipate borders remaining closed / heavily restricted for another six months – and therefore cannot guarantee that your dog would be with you until September at the earliest (this is a prediction based on current circumstances).
If you’re willing to wait, and would like to learn more about any of the dogs in our care (for example, a dog you may have seen featured on our social media) we would of course be delighted to hear more from you and begin the initial adoption process, after which we will secure transport for your dog as soon as we possibly can. We will keep you updated throughout the duration of your wait with both photos and videos of your dog, and any news as the travel situation progresses.
Alternatively, if you’d like to adopt a Jai Dog in the near future but would prefer to wait until you can browse and learn more about all our adoptable dogs, you can register your interest now and we’ll be in touch as soon as we’re able to restart our standard adoptions process.
There’s no denying that the pandemic has had a vast effect on our adoption efforts. But whilst it’s devastating to have to put things on pause, we’re showing no signs of slowing down behind the scenes. We’re seeing this time as an opportunity to refine and perfect our adoptions service, ready to come back with a bang.
With years of rescue experience under our belt, and a truly world-class shelter in which to raise and socialise our dogs, we know we're able to give adopters a unique experience. Launching this summer, we’ll be combining everything we do best into one utterly dedicated, end-to-end adoption service.
From refining transport routes and streamlining logistics, to perfecting the advice, resources and aftercare we offer, we can’t wait to get the wheels in motion...just as soon as we possibly can!
