What Our Volunteers Say
Ben Mangnall – I loved my time at the healing centre (2023)
I absolutely loved my time volunteering at Headrock dogs, you can see how much love and care all the dogs receive and the people are so welcoming, loved it that much I’ve planned a trip back in a few months, you won’t ever want to leave!
From Ben Mangnall
Our first volunteer since pre-Covid...
Sandra and Lynn - volunteered for five months
Sandra and Lynn volunteered with us for nearly 5 months. They helped enormously with various dog health problems.
They both spent a lot of time and expertise creating this video of their work with our dogs.
Sandra is a qualified dog trainer. Her experience in dogs' characters was put to good use with some of our naughty boys!
Marjorie's & Hugo's Headrock Experience
We had a great week with all the team at the shelter. the team were very kind to the dogs. We have learned a lot during this week and we hope to have the chance to come back someday.
Thank you all for your kindness! I miss the dogs already. I would have liked to take all the dogs in my apartment Paris but 22msq seems a bit small ... thanks thanks thanks. Marjorie and Hugo
Mari and April: Our volunteering experience
Headrock Dogs Rescue is a truly amazing place! The dogs are so well cared for and loved. Each and every person we met here was dedicated to the welfare of all the dogs. Verity and Thep do an amazing job helping these abused and neglected souls. The dogs are so loving and content and their every need is met as much as possible where funds allow. If you can go and volunteer, I would 100% recommend this and if not, please consider donating to help with the huge costs of feeding and veterinary treatment.
I miss the dogs so much but I was able to return home knowing that they are in the best of hands. Thank you, Verity, for allowing us to be part of your Rescue and also, a big thank you to Franz and Franzisca for teaching us the ropes and answering our endless questions! Please give all the dogs a big kiss from April and myself. See you all again soon I hope.
Brooke: My volunteering time
Good Morning Doris
I had the pleasure of volunteering at Headrock Dogs Rescue in April 2019. It truly was a rewarding and very enjoyable experience. I loved being greeted by all the happy faces and wagging tails each morning and I felt I was really contributing to making their lives better. Not only was Headrock dogs an amazing place to volunteer but Bangsaphan is a slice of paradise away from the crowds and flocks of tourists you see elsewhere in Thailand. I can't recommend Headrock dogs enough. If you're thinking of volunteering, go for it!
Doris is such a gorgeous
loving old dog
Peanut is such a sweet happy little dog
Thank you so much for having us. Our time went too quickly. I hope Doris is getting all the hugs she deserves from the volunteers! I think about her every day.
Poppy and Matilda: An Amazing Place
A really amazing place! The dogs are so happy and so well looked after. We spent 10 days volunteering here and couldn’t recommend it more. Verity and Thep do a fantastic job caring for the dogs, as do the long-standing volunteers Franz and Francesca, and the Thai staff Lin and Lek are great! Would highly recommend coming here, lovely dogs and lovely people.
Can’t wait to come back again!
Annette: My wonderful time at Headrockdogs
Unfortunately, Facebook has changed from reviews to recommendations - if they still had reviews I would definitely give Headrock Dogs Rescue 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!!!
I volunteered at Headrock Dogs Rescue for 2 weeks - it was a very rewarding experience and I loved every minute. I learnt so much during my time there and also saw the incredible team of Headrocks Dog Rescue in action: Verity, Thep, Lin, Lek, Pituk, Bu & Francois are so dedicated to these dogs and have so much love for all of them (evident when they arrive in the morning to a mass wagging of tails and demands for a head scratch!).
The dogs at Headrock Dogs Rescue are some of the happiest dogs in Thailand - they have a huge area that they can roam and explore and play in and, most importantly, are pen-free which works incredibly well at this sanctuary. There are times when it is so quiet, you could hear a pin drop! I loved getting to know all the dogs and their different personalities and will miss them so much!
Eléa Oganessova - Our Time At Headrock Dogs Rescue
Headrock Dogs Rescue is a great place to bond with dogs. The whole team is very caring and present daily. There are at least 60 dogs you can socialize with and they are all lovely.
I went there with three friends for a school internship because we wanted to connect and really help with the animals. Although they already have an efficient team, we had the opportunity to help take care of them: cleaning the field, washing the dogs, give some skin treatment for those who needed it...
Time for a bath and massage!!
We admired the commitment and time the other permanent volunteers like Françoise and Lin dedicated to the dogs: they are here all year long and do their best to take care of them. They also guided us if we needed something as well as Verity and Thep who checked if we were doing ok when they had the time. It was easier to communicate with Françoise (as she speaks French) but everyone made efforts for everything to go well.
Coming here also made us realized the difficult situation in which some stray dogs can be. We had a great time with everyone and would definitely come back if we ever had the chance.
