The whole story was started from loving and caring for dogs and cats of K.Sataporn Diphaa (formerly known as Renu Junsukhon). She saw many cases of injured dogs that were hit by cars and were left to suffer and die. She had also seen so many cases which dogs were subjected to abuse and to cruelty by human.
K.Sataporn with her family had continually given help and care to these animals since 1981. These recovered animals becoming her pets and, of course, being one of her family. Rapidly growing number of these animals make her house becoming crowded and her neighbors becoming unpleasant due to noise and smell. She had also met financial difficulties keeping up these animals. Finally, she moved her place to the suburbs with her animals which named “Baan Songkrosatpikarn” (Home for Handicapped Animals).
