K-9DRAS is a Charitable Animal Welfare Organization and our goal is to see a day when every stray cat or dog is safe, respected and loved. No matter how much we’d love to work towards the bigger picture, we have a commitment to work with what today brings us and what animals need us the most.
We strive to save all animals, but realise this is sadly sometimes an impossibility. All animals in our care will be sterilized and hope we can run mobile clinics in the neighbouring area as well.
All donations (unless specifically noted) will go towards running of the shelter, programs and services such as food donations, cat and dog adoptions, transport and flights. There are other services available such as pet relocation, Quarantine and flights, Titer tests etc.
We work together with other smaller local rescues as they need the support more than the bigger, more popular ones.

Hi there my name is Peter Neilson. I have been Rescuing, Fostering, Rehabilitating and Adopting dogs for over 6 years now. I originally started rescuing Beagle pups that were being discarded by breeders. I would go through the trash at markets to find screaming, scared puppies.
Myself and my wife were only living in an apartment at the time, but luckily we were allowed to have the puppies there. Later we built a house on land the wife already had and we’ve been working here ever since.
People would either ring us, we’d hear through word of mouth or find dogs or puppies on the roads, in empty blocks or dumped by previous owners. Injured, sick, disabled or disoriented, pregnant or with suckling pups we’ll take them all
Most dogs we find will have a serious case of tick infestation. Our first priority is to clear them of ticks, clean wounds, get a blood test done and go from there. Many dogs have low platelet counts, low Red Blood Counts, Blood parasites etc etc.
Some dogs are terrified of humans, so we have to work on social skills, house training, socializing in crowds etc.

— lets help the dogs (@PeterNeilson090) February 10, 2020
We try to find suitable homes for all dogs as we believe they deserve to be loved considering what they have gone through. We use social media :- Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc to get the word around. We mainly do international adoptions but will also adopt locally.
We arrange all flights to international destinations ourselves. Purchasing of crates, Rabies Titer tests, Quarantine checks before they leave as well as full check in.
We have a service for people who want to leave the country with their pets and we can organize everything for them. Any profit goes back to the dogs.
Spay and Neuter is a very big part of what we do to control the exploding population. Thailand has an approximate 8 million stray dogs and that number is growing very fast. I am planning to have mobile clinics in the future.
Rescue and support how you can help
Currently we are still working from home. We have 20 dogs here and it is getting to be too much. There is no room to take in more dogs but there is a huge need. We have dogs waiting to go to Los Angeles, but due to the current pandemic, they have to wait. We are hoping to raise funds to purchase some land and also gain Foundation status so we can become fully legal. We will be needing to also employ a fulltime vet and staff.
