  Water content would be high so cheaper to bury them.

A poor attempt at humour!  I appreciate that every one is not an animal/dog lover - in fact one of my pet hates (apart from being harassed  by packs of "soi" dogs) are the dogs that bark incessantly all night for no apparent reason (apart from letting everyone within hearing distance know that they are there/on their territory)

 

However, who mentioned anything about water content?

Dogs barking for seemingly no reason is usually caused by ghosts.

That's better! But you haven't answered my question!

Incinerators use a considerable amount of power and much much more when the fuel (expired pooches) has a high water content. Rice also has a high water content and thus not useful for generating power for example.

But surely the fat content would compensate? There again - soi dogs don't get very fat!

 

Anyway, thanks for the answer to my "burning" question!

Would be far more environmentally friendly to bury (long term) or mince and spread (short term) as fertilizer. BTW.. Dog of around 25kg requires +- 40MJ of thermal energy not including pre-heating and conductive loss.

On Samui we have dog and cat rescue Samui .

They have been doing this continuously since 1999.

100% of dogs on our street is vaccinated and fixed already thanks to them

100% of dogs on our street is vaccinated and fixed already thanks to them This is a complete and utter lie and it is a disgrace that someone on Samui in a responsible position on the forums should post such lies. Complete fabrication from PoorSucker yet again trying to promote Koh Samui. 

 

As for the link to the dog and cat rescue place, I can tell you from personal experience that they are the most vile and unhelpful people I've ever contacted for help on Samui. My experience, up to you ....................

 

If you are going to donate money do it to the Snake guy, not these leeches.

I suggest you read the article, and do some research on how 'extermination' doesn't work 

Dead dogs do not breed

Yes, Phil also does sterling work and rather him than me!

 

However, I stand by my statement about the work done by the voluntary Dog Rescue Centre, Samui - the situation regarding stray dogs is nowhere near as bad as  it was say 10 years ago. And you should be aware that this organisation has 2 centres - maybe one is better/worse than the other? :- 

 

"We have two shelters: a small one in Chaweng at our house and the large one at Ban Taling Ngam in the south west of the island."

 

Possibly you caught the staff on a bad day - it does happen sometimes wherever you are,  and these people are doing voluntary work, so you should give them a bit of leeway

 

And to say:-  "100% of dogs on our street is vaccinated and fixed already thanks to them" is possibly true - you don't know all the dogs on his street, whereas he possibly does. Now if he'd said "100% of the dogs on the streets are vaccinated and fixed already thanks to them" then I would take that as a bit of an exaggeration to say the least!

 

Anyway, sorry for your bad experience, and by the way, I have no connection or vested interests in either of the above shelters!

 

 

 

I very much agree with Sambum (above).

 

EVERY person that I have talked to regarding this (who has some basic knowledge) says that the Dog Rescue Center Samui group is an excellent organization.

 

And as for Mr Sucker being a liar, offer some concrete evidence or shut the hell up. Your post was very offensive.

First of all 'every person I have talked to' means that you have no personal experience. I too 'have heard' many stories about this business, most of the stories saying they have refused to take in cats and dogs. <deleted> it is supposed to be a dog and cat rescue centre.

 

'Who has some basic knowledge' implies that I'm stupid. Far from it.

 

My personal experience is this: A stray bitch delivered 11 puppies near our house which was close to a main road. The house was rented so we couldn't keep them. I rang the Dog & Cat Rescue Centre and they said they couldn't help but their Vet would be able to come round 4 days later. We paid a Thai guy to take the bitch and the puppies to a temple where they had a better chance of surviving. 4 days later these <deleted> from the rescue place rang me to say maybe they could help and were offensive when I said it was too late.

 

I implore everyone that reads this post not to give single Thai Baht to this business. 

 

'And as for Mr Sucker being a liar, offer some concrete evidence or shut the hell up. Your post was very offensive.' There are stray dogs everywhere on Samui and they don't have any ID so no-one can really claim that there is 100% vaccination of dogs on their street. Your post is naive.

There are 4  dogs on my street, they all gets feed by me and my neighbors, they keep all other strays away.

How do I know they are all vaccinated and fixed?

I have taken them to dog rescue center myself.

A bounty on strays would work the best. Of course all the enablers would die from a bleeding heart, but that's a price I am willing to pay.

'The programme will target a minimum of 80 per cent of the dog population in the islands, estimated to be around 10,000 animals'....

 

So there will still be around 10,000 animals on the island... and 20 percent will still be breeding.. and their puppies growing up and also breeding, and peoples pet dogs will keep breeding and being dumped to add to the 10,000 plus population.... so what good is Soi Dog Foundations actually doing?... there are still thousands of dogs and the population will still be growing... perhaps even faster, if the remaining dogs are vaccinated and now in top health... more puppies will survive and not die of disease.  

 

'Soi Dog Foundation started sterilising and vaccinating street dogs and cats in Phuket, back in 2003, the organisation has now achieved over 165,000 sterilisation operations, mainly in Phuket, Khao Lak, Phang Nga, and Bangkok'.

 

My visits to Phuket and Bangkok suggest there is still a huge street dog population.. and I have seen plenty of street dogs with puppies also in these areas.  I suggest their methods are next to useless and a complete waste of time and energy.... the money that is spent on these things is huge, and better spent on other things that actually help people or animals.
