The Dog Sanctuary at Elephant Nature Park, home to about 430 dogs. The sanctuary was started in 2011, as a result of the Bangkok floods trapping thousands of dogs on rooftops. Volunteers gathered together and when all was said and done, over 2,000 dogs that were pulled to safety and with a little food, water, and medical treatment they were ready to survive on their own again. But there were about 155 that needed more attention and thus, the Dog Sanctuary of Elephant Nature Park was born.
Today there are over 430 dogs living in the Dog Sanctuary. That's 430 different personalities and unique and often heartbreaking stories as to how each dog arrived at the sanctuary. I volunteered alongside a group of animal loving hippies from around the world and together we focused our attention on the sickest and most injured dogs, the ones in the Dog Clinic.
This is Long. Long was found beaten half to death in a bag. He somehow survived but can't control his bladder. He's still the sweetest dog and I wished so much I could have taken him home.

Gladys never got used to this cone and would ram her head into all the things.
Lucie and I perfecting the cuddle, cuddle, detick.
Steel was hit by a motorbike but is too badass to slow down. Put him in this trainer and he freaking runs.

Poor Ahn is passed out after ear surgery.
We could have hung out with them for hours oh wait, we did.
