In the central mountains of Thailand, there is a location where many different types of animals, such as cats, dogs, monkeys and turtles are living.
We’d like to share the opportunity to join the efforts in supporting to feed these animals with others.
The amount that you give does not matter -- even 1 dollar is welcome. For more information, read below.
(As of January 21, 2018)
Rhesus Monkeys - Estimated at approximately 300, they live in the forest in separate clans. They are fed rice and corn, and fruit scraps twice daily. In addition, they forage for food around the temple grounds, including leftover food from other animals.
Forest Pigs - Estimated at 11 currently (2 piglets included), they are fed one 8L pot of rice a day, often mixed with corn. They live in a pen with shade and water.
Dogs and Cats - Now approximately 50 dogs and 50 cats. Even though the dogs die, the numbers have increased for the past 40 years. They are fed twice a day. The rice is cooked with chicken carcass, which previously was free, but now must be purchased.
Turtles - A small enclosed area is home to approximately 300 turtles. They are fed vegetables every week for these turtles, 2 large buckets of lettuce or cabbages once a day in the afternoon. The leaves are broken up and washed before giving to the turtles.
Expanses of forests once surrounded the area. There is now significant development in the area, and this is restricting the habitat of the Rhesus Monkeys.
Note: Topics pertaining to religion, temples, monks, and nuns are a sensitive topic in Thailand. This site is dedicated to providing food for the animals and has nothing to do with the above topics.
