A few years ago, at the time a starving and injured dog showed up behind a restaurant in Thailand where Michael Baines worked, he used his immediate natural instinct to feed and take care of her. He didn’t think that this kind gesture would result at some point in the hungry dog being one of around 80 street dogs he now monitors and care for every single day. Noticing that she was only one of countless local dogs in serious need of nutrition, he turned his canine compassion into a powerful passion project.
Each day on his way from home to work at Carrat, a restaurant in Chonburi, Thailand where he is the chef and general manager, Baines stops eight times to give food to 30 different dogs. After the early meal rush is over, he gathers leftovers for his second round, stopping eight or nine times to provide food to an additional 30-35 street dogs, in addition to six that wait for him outside Carrat. He feeds four to five more during one last stop on his return home. That’s around 17 stops and 80 dogs total.
