FILM DESCRIPTIONS:
"Stray" Bali Dog Adoption Rehabilitation Centre
She may be a tough-talking Aussie, but 60-year-old Linda Buller’s passion and love of animals is second-to-none. Linda first came to the tropical island of Bali 20 years ago to sober up and get her life back on track, and ended up staying to start a career as an artist. But Linda soon discovered that the Balinese have a different cultural viewpoint on keeping pets and how much to nurture them. As Hindus they believe humans who lead a less than perfect life are destined for canine reincarnation.

It wasn’t long until the endless sight of horrifically wounded dogs roaming the streets inspired this feisty animal-lover to set up a dog refuge centre with little funds in an abandoned gallery, and start collecting maimed dogs and puppies from the street. Her goal was to help encourage locals to care for dogs as pets by adopting street dogs that have been nursed back to health.

But now local resistance to Linda’s plans plus an endless stream of dumped dogs, cats and monkeys and a serious rabies outbreak, means Linda’s mission is one hard task.

Soi Dog Foundation The Movie

Leaving the UK to retire to Thailand sounds like a dream, but a dream can quickly become a nightmare and paradise can turn on you in a second. Following key members of The Soi Dog Foundation, this documentary is a testament to their dedication in helping the estimated 20,000 dogs living wild on the island of Phuket. Faced with horror and inhumanity each day, foundation Managers John and Gill Dalley battle on regardless, but when adversity turns into incomprehensible personal tragedy, is their will strong enough to fight another day?
