The man that rescues dogs (TMTRD) was established in 2011 in Bangsaen Chonburi, Thailand, to help street dogs who had no one else to rely on for even basic care.

Initially, it began with a small number of dogs, which rose to 80, and continues to grow today. There yet remains many homeless, disabled, and sick dogs, who need vaccinations, medical care, and someone to care. The numbers are growing at an alarming rate due to lack of sterilization (spay/neuter) programs, education, and lack of concern for responsible pet ownership by many. Countless dogs are just "dumped" every day to fend for themselves, and not all can master it alone. This only contributes to and highlights the plight of the stray dog. TMTRD, a non-profit organization was created to provide, etc. Funding then, as it is now, depends on individuals who share the vision of our founders.
