Thailand Floods

Cries From The Water ▼

Bangkok, Thailand — It might take Noah's Ark to save them all. Dogs bark from rooftops. Animals are submerged chest deep. The skin rots, if underwater too long. Some paddle to any object above water. Howls and cries punctuate the night.

Kinship Circle works with SCAD Foundation (Soi/Street Cats & Dogs Bangkok) and Save Elephant Foundation as part of a global coalition including: Soi Dog Foundation, Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand (WFFT), Pic-A-Pet4Home, Humane Society International, Worldwide Veterinary Service, WSPA.
