Overview
More
Lanta Animal Welfare (LAW) is a non-profit organization based on Ko Lanta. LAW's objective is to rehabilitate suffering and sick animals on the island through sterilisation and care. We are open to visitors everyday from 9am to 5pm and our volunteer staff will happily provide a guided tour of the center every hour, on the hour, between 10am and 4pm. We have lots of friendly dogs who would love a long walk and cats who would like a cuddle! (Please note there is generally no dogwalking between 11-3 as it gets too hot for them!). The dogs spend their days in grassy outdoor pens, so like everywhere in Thailand, it's best to wear insect/mosquito repellant when visiting. Our major sponsor is Time For Lime bar, restaurant and cooking school, without their valuable support we would not be here.

Homeless cats and dogs are rescued and helped. You can take one or just touch them. Recommend for people liking animals. The ko lanta wellfare is organized by people not earning money. That's great. Go there by tuktuk!

Thank you for choosing to spend some time at our centre. The team works very hard to make it the best place it can be for the animals in our care.

A really lovely place with such lovely staff. When we visited we were taken on a tour of the whole place and we took 4 of the dogs on a nice wall nearby. All the animals seem really happy there and were all very friendly.

Thank you for visiting LAW and taking some of our dogs for a walk. This not only helps them get their exercise but also helps them feel more comfortable around new people - and that makes it easier to get them adopted!
