Unlikely Imports - The Story of Thai Street Paws Rescue

Blog image for Unlikely Imports: The Story of Thai Street Paws Rescue

There’s no greater joy than finding a permanent home for dogs in need, especially for stray dogs. As man’s best friend, our furry companions deserve the safety and security of a family that loves them. Thai Street Paws Rescue is working to save these animals from the dangers of living as a stray. The streets of Thailand are swarming with stray dogs, desperately trying to survive off scraps and garbage found in the street.

Saving Man’s Best Friend

Ten years ago, Tamara Johnston started her journey by adopting her own street dog from Songkhla in southern Thailand. After adopting Bella, Tamara made it her mission to save as many dogs as she could. A stray dog’s life is often short and painful, filled with disease, neglect, violence, and starvation. Stray dogs can be aggressive to the people around them, carry infectious diseases, and destroy other wildlife. Thai Street Paws Rescue gives Thailand stray dogs a fighting chance by taking them off the street and giving them food, shelter, and medical care.

Importing Adopted Dogs

While Tamara is doing incredible work by rescuing and housing stray dogs, there are only so many dogs that she can accommodate at one time. Part of her mission is to find new homes for these animals through adoption. For people in the United States looking for a new furry companion, Thai Street Paws Rescue is one of the best solutions available.
