Pete’s Mission Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation
My name is Ryan Godden, I am an animal advocate and rescue worker. After many years of working with established organizations I have made the long-planned move to begin a new animal rescue project here in Northern Thailand and therefore have launched a GoFundMe campaign to assist with this.
I am currently self-funding Pete’s Mission and relying on the kindness and generosity of local people here in Pai, Maehongson province. My daily routine of medications, wound treatment, vet visits, and follow-up checks is growing as I receive more phone calls and messages requesting my help or directing me toward an animal in need.
Anyone who has been to Thailand would have experienced the stray dog/cat situation. Sick and injured animals roam the streets and breeding goes mostly unchecked, especially in rural regions. No one likes to see this but few have the means to take action. I do and I will.
Many of the animals here have terrible skin infections, eye conditions, gaping wounds, anemia, fleas and ticks, bone fractures, and tick-borne diseases just to name a few. Over population and lack of vaccinations has resulted in terrible outbreaks of Distemper and Parvovirus which lead to painful deaths. Most horrifying of all is the human inflicted injuries and planned poisonings that occur. I have seen the devastating and irreversible effects of poisoning and I have responded and cared for animal with unimaginable injuries sustained.
Currently I am housing and treating animals in my home as well as providing outreach care to those animals most in need.
I am working with the only veterinarian in town and a kind-hearted group of animal advocates, Pai Four-Legged Friends .
