What to expect
The government of Myanmar sees stray dogs as menaces to society and has begun an initiative to poison them and eliminate them from the streets. Yangon Animal Shelter is at the front-line fight against this cruelty. With five different housing areas and dedicated veterinarians from all across Myanmar, the shelter provides a comfortable temporary home for all dogs in need. Dogs at the shelter receive the best living conditions possible, as they roam freely and are not restricted in cages. This allows them to intimately interact with humans on a regular basis, making them trusting and friendly. So prepare for a loud, jumpy, and enthusiastic greeting from your new four-legged friends!Transportation from downtown Yangon will be provided, starting at a pick up spot approximately an hour away from the shelter. Don't miss out on Saturdays -- when a resident vet visits the shelter clinic to care for dogs. Otherwise, the tour will consist mostly of socializing and getting to know the name, background, and story of each dog and puppy. All these dogs may overwhelm hesitant visitors, but if you're a true dog lover, this is a dream come true!
