Thailand is a wonderful country with a wonderful culture, delicious food and… lots of stray dogs.
This problem exists in many countries.
Thousands of homeless dogs roam the streets in order to survive.
Particularly in Thailand, this is due to the Buddhist culture, according to which people receive merit for feeding stray animals.
Also, in Thailand, there are very few opportunities to spay/neuter an animal inexpensively.
And because of this, hundreds of dogs are born every day, and there are not enough homes for them.
One kind-hearted design student, Ajarn Yossaphon Chanthongjeen, decided to make life easier for these poor animals.
He launched a project to transform old billboards into animal shelters.
He came up with it during his doctoral program and received a lot of praise.
The student began to cooperate with a company that helped him in the implementation of his idea.
At the moment, about 20 similar shelters have been created from billboards, which otherwise would have ended up in a landfill.
On its Facebook and Instagram group, this company posts photos of ready-made shelters and their inhabitants.
They are something like an umbrella from the weather.
They are located in various parts of the city. Their main advantage is that they are foldable.
When not in use, these shelters can be easily folded up and leaned against the wall.
Thus, they do not interfere with anyone and take up little space. Isn’t that brilliant?
