I need your help to build a permanent 300-meter fence and shelter (or big dog house) for this family to make sure they could live safe and sound. As two of them were already poisoned to death at only age 5-month old. And now the puppies started to come out. So we're really worried about their safety.
Here's the story...
We happened to adopt a dog pack or we'd rather to call them 'family' in the middle of June this year.
Suae (or 'Tiger') walked by my window everyday with her 5 kids. While she obviously got thinner each day, her kids' tummies were still pretty much the same. (Couldn't say they had tummies though...) Looking at her taking care of her kids, we could tell Suae gave all the food she found to her kids and endured starving on her own. Since she was a really good mother, we decided to adopt her. However, Suae also had 4 other grown up dogs in her pack. So we ended up adopting 5 dogs and 5 puppies.

I had raised many dogs entire my life. But this pack are different. Whenever we gave them food, the grown up ones would run out in different directions to guard our land from other dogs and let mommy and puppies eat first. And even though we feed them with meat or meat ball, Suae never once eat them. She would sit behind and watch her puppies and others eat them. Only when everyone else were full, she then checked what's left and eat if any.

Lai (female) and Lone (male)
There are much more which show their love and care towards each other. And we came to adore and fond with them very quickly.
The puppies grew up and played around us.
How did they become such a big family?
Well, three of the pack are female. And four out of five of Suae's kids are also female. By the time we were able to get close and touch them, one of our dogs (yes, we'd already raising 4 dogs long before we adopt them!) got seriously sick and had to stay in a hospital in Bangkok. One and half month later, when we got back home, four of them - including one of Suae's kid - already got pregnant. ^^"
However, what's really sad was two of Suae's kids were poisoned to death when we were away. All because our land is opened. We don't have fence because 4,800 meters would cost a lot of money and we can't afford that.

I felt so sorry for them...
Now three mothers already gave birth. The first 6 puppies are already 45 days old and started to run around our land. Chocky, the youngest, had already walked out on the street once in the middle of the night and fell in to a waterway. Again she ran into our neighbor's land and was bullies by 3 grown up dogs. So my husband, my mother, and I spent a day built a small fence around their nests to keep the puppies in their place at night. But this fence will be last until they're 3 months old for the most. If they grow up enough, this fence won't be able to hold them anymore.

Chocky - the trouble maker(?) - grows up well.
Don't underestimate her. This girl already know how to climb up the fence!
You may see their temporary shelter behind
Lai's kids also ready to come out
The third six puppies are just one week old now
It might not seem so but Sing is set to give birth in next one month and half. And we're worried she'd hide somewhere out of our land.
That's why I'm here asking everyone for help.
I will give out around 10 puppies, to be honest. Thirty dogs would be too much for us to feed them. We planned to keep least 18 dogs as the puppies are so cute. It's really hard on us to give them away...
Though the size of the family will be smaller in the next three months, to make sure they will be all safe and sound, could you please support us building a 300-meter fence. If we are able to raise the full amount of fund, we will also build them a shelter so they have a nice place to stay in hot, cold, and rainy days.
