In the East of Phuket, Thailand, you will find a temple named ‘Wat Pa Klok’. This is a special place because on the grounds is a dog sanctuary called Bodhi Animal Shelter & Clinic! We stumbled across this place due to their contacts with the new Phuket Elephant Sanctuary (related to Elephant Nature Park Chiang Mai)! So we thought we’d take a visit!
Bodhi is owned by a lovely lady called Tina, who has so much love for all dogs! There are over 100 at the shelter at the moment, but new ones come in frequently due to neglect, mistreatment and abandonment. An adoption program is in place, and many of their dogs have found a new home overseas.
If you are ever in that area of Thailand, please take a visit to this amazing hideaway. Its just a 40 minute drive away from Phuket Town. There is always something to do there, including shampooing, walking, feeding and socialising.
