'I quit my life in London to rescue stray dogs in Thailand'
Mike Dower was living in London and working in IT when he visited Thailand in 2008. He was shocked to encounter a large number of stray dogs who had been left dead in the street, were blind or totally emancipated and he vowed right then and there that he would help put a stop to it.
In February Mike moved to Thailand and set up a charity called Bon Jardin which helps dogs in need. Since then he’s come to the aid of a dog who was shot and paralysed, by attaching a wheelchair to his legs to help him walk.
Mike has also helped a blind dog called Suzy, who now lives with his friend in the UK and he joins us today alongside the grateful four-legged pup.
