Thailand is home to a large number of soi cats who, sadly, do not have the best start in life. Many of them are riddled with parasites, viruses, and other infections. Unfortunately, they often don’t get the vet attention that they desperately need.
The number of soi cats in Thailand is continuously on the rise. Back in 2017, it was estimated that Thailand had 860,000 stray cats and dogs. To put this into perspective, that is about half the population of Chiang Mai.
The problem is… cats can have a lot of cats! Every year, cats can have up to 4 litters with approximately 4 cats each. When you start adding up what happens when those cats have cats, the numbers become quite scary.
This is where Adopt Meow comes in! Through vet visits, rescue missions, adoptions, and the TNR program, Adopt Meow is helping save the lives of soi cats throughout Chiang Mai.
Here is an overview of what Adopt Meow does in Chiang Mai:
They have rescued hundreds of kittens and cats. More often than not, they will need some kind of medical care. Adopt Meow is always raising funds and accepting donations to cover these medical bills.
Today, the Adopt Meow Rescue Center provides a temporary home to approximately 40 cats and kittens.
If you’re looking for a new feline companion, look no further! They have many cats under their care and are always rescuing new kittens. Feel free to browse through the lovely bunch here:

Not in a position to adopt? Why not have the joys of having a cat without having to keep them for 20 odd years? Giving a cat a loving space to live on their way to finding their forever home is an incredible help! If you have time, patience, love, and care to give a foster kitten or cat, then please also contact us.
Working with local communities, we have an active Trap Neuter Release (TNR) program which helps reduce the number of unwanted kittens and improve the quality of life of the stray and street cats in Chiang Mai.
