Animal Shelter

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Does anyone know if there are any animal shelters in Siem Reap for volunteers?

Why do you need to travel across the world (to a poor country) to do that?

Mind you the RSPCA (UK) kill over half of the animals they “rescue” so maybe your time is better off spent here!

I thought kittens are obligate carnivores. Oh wait, this is Cambodia. Even the cats here are powered by rice. Carry on, vegan kittens!

I find it amusing how many expats (of all ages) have dogs here and often puppies.

Unless you plan on staying here for at least the life of the dog (15 years?) don’t get one.

I think they think they look cool and unique with a dog sitting on the handlebars/lap/in a box/in a backpack etc.

Not only that but the amount of large dogs beggars belief. I know two houses across from me have large dogs on third floor and are never seen taking them out to walk. ( I know , I am not watching 24/7).
I walk Riverside and other streets from 5.30 each day and am noticing more dogs roaming about. Have had a couple get a bit aggressive but so far not been directly attacked.

Am considering a pepper spray or a tazar.
