Covid Puts Renowned Dog Cafe in Northern Thailand Out of Business

The Smile Dog Cafe in northern Thailand’s Chiang Mai city has announced on its Facebook page that its closing its doors for good due to financial difficulties from the covid-19 pandemic.

“We are finished” What we had been afraid of has finally happened to us. The Covid-19 pandemic has affected us tremendously as the cost of raising these 28 dogs is extremely high. We have tried our best amid the situation and would like to ask for your understanding and support,” the café’s owners posted.

“The Smile Dog cafe will be opened until the end of August and everyone is welcome to come say goodbye to the dogs. Some of these dogs will need to find new owners who would be able to take care of them for the rest of their life.

All our dogs are well-trained and very friendly. Anyone interested in adopting these dogs is required to come and meet the dogs in person at the café.

So far the response has been overwhelming, the owner says, and she will take her time to assure that each of her ‘children’ are properly and happily homed.

“We would like to thank all our customers who have been giving us support and have made constant visits at our cafe. This is the only solution for everyone to survive and live a better life.

We truly regret what happens, but we really have done our best. Goodbye,” the the owner said.

The Smile Dog Cafe will operate until the end of this month and if anyone else is interested in taking over the business, they can contact the café owners via its Facebook page.
