Help Shelter the Street Dogs!

Update posted by Wendy Ko On Dec 27, 2015

So, it happened! Got to meet the angel behind lovelyhungryfriends (LHF) and her family of street dogs in Chiangmai - didn't stop beaming a single moment, and we had the best conversations!

Unfortunately we did not get to secure the noodle shop as it had a higher bid from a family who lives along that street, they are kind folks so we hope the dogs will still be welcomed. For now, our initial ideas and cafe plans are on the back burner.

I do believe that everything happens for a reason though; on my last day going to the airport, LHF voiced something I was also thinking - as the raised amount is now considerably more than enough for food, she would like to share the donations with two other dog shelters in Chiangmai which are close to our hearts. I happily agreed! The majority (3/5ths) will still go to LHF as she intends to get higher grade chow for the dogs plus more treats! This will last a year!

LHF is also taking a dog training course (on her own dime) now so she can learn how to approach and gain the street dogs' trust but yet keep them vigilant as sadly there are still bad people out there who will hurt them. She has other longterm dreams too involving the dogs, which I am not at liberty to share, but am honoured that she told me about. We both hope to keep our paths entwined :)

I would like to personally thank my family, friends, strangers-who-have-become-friends and LHF-IG family for the incredible support. It's been quite an adventure, and I am thankful for each and everyone of you who have made me believe that there are good hearts out there!

Here are the links to the other dog shelters your funds will go towards :)

~ Happy festive greetings :D

Hi again,

Wanted to warn everyone about a scam account that was set up by another person, using the same photos and text as my crowdfund campaign, just a slightly different title.

Me and my friends have already reported the issue to the site administrators.

Our existing funds and your transactional information are not compromised so please do not worry. But LHF and myself have decided to stop our fund sourcing to avoid confusion and potential erroneous donations to the fraudulent account.

Please see my next update on the status of this campaign and the disbursement of the raised funds.

Thank you!

Wendy:)

Hi all!

Giving this another go as my 2 updates from yesterday about a fraudulent identical site being set up, and status of where we are at, were not shown online. But you would have received emails indicating there are updates that link to none :/ I had already reported to gogetfunding on this glitch.

If this update post works, I will re-add the updates :)

Gleaned updated info from the IG account - besides renting the shop as a shelter for the soi / street dogs, the cafe also serves as a space to spread the message of adoption. Even better, funds will support others (mainly the old ladies) who have been feeding the strays about Chiangmai :D

Will update with concrete plans once I meet her in December! (thanks to S-A for the suggestion :-*

Thank you to everyone for your wonderful support :)

I've just booked a flight to Chiangmai, and hence the end campaign date is now shortened.

Really touched and thankful for the donations thus far! Thank you to my friends - new and old - for the faith :)

Onwards and upwards!

I am concerned as to where this money is going now as I have gotten 3 emails saying this account is fraud and has been stopped. Will you in fact be giving the money tomorrow as stated?
