His Majesty the King donated 10 million baht to the Municipality of Hua Hin on 8th April to support its full-cycle management of the stray dog problem. The money was presented to the municipality in a ceremony held at the Klai Kangwon Palace office in Hua Hin, by Grand Chamberlain Distorn Vajarodaya, who is also deputy secretary general of the Hua Hin Dog Shelter Foundation under the Royal Patronage.
Mr. Nopporn Vudhikul, Mayor of Hua Hin said upon receiving the money that the municipality would spend the royal donation on securing permanent places for stray dogs as well as providing them with sufficient food, necessary vaccinations and care for sick dogs. He said the project to take care of stray dogs is very useful as Hua Hin is a major tourist site while the project itself has drawn interest from dog lovers who come to visit the Hua Hin Dog Shelter on a constant basis. He said His Majesty the King intended to make the Hua Hin Dog Shelter a model of full-cycle management of the stray dog problem.
