The Dog Rescue Clinic is about 45 minutes from the heart of Chiang Mai. Here, students spend their days learning about veterinary medicine and assisting Thai veterinarians to provide free care and sterilizations to dogs and cats in need.
For years, Loop Abroad has supported the Animal Rescue Kingdom (ARK), a dog rescue run solely on donations. In 2018, we were finally able to open the Dog Rescue Clinic just down the road to provide even better veterinary support for the dogs at ARK as well as street dogs throughout the community.
The clinic rooms at Dog Rescue Clinic are our classrooms. Throughout the typical week of a Veterinary Service program, we provide much-needed physical exams, ear cleanings, de-worming, attention to wounds and infections, preventative medicine, treatment, and grooming.
New dogs are always coming into the ARK down the road. We provide extra space at the clinic for when they’re overcapacity.
Dogs staying at Dog Rescue Clinic and at ARK are available for adoption but only in Thailand. Many dogs will spend their whole life at the ARK, which is a no-kill shelter. Our support is vital to these dogs’ lives, and we’re happy to help them with medical care, funding, and lots of love.
