The Soi Dog Foundation has received international recognition for its rescue work, and has drawn the attention of supporters including Ricky Gervais, Judi Dench, and members of Downton Abbey who have spoken out against dogs being tortured and slaughtered for their meat.
B.C dog lovers are some of the strongest supporters of adopting these dogs as well as sharing and signing petitions demanding the ban of the illegal dog trade. All are all invited to this get together with volunteers to see all the work this rescue organization is doing to better the lives of dogs in need.
