Lanta Animal Welfare (LAW)

Lanta Animal Welfare (LAW)

Lanta Animal Welfare (LAW) is a non-profit organization. LAW’s objective is to relieve the suffering and pain of the animals on Koh Lanta island in the south east of Thailand.

Program Description:

Lanta Animal Welfare is in urgent need of volunteers to help care for the island's stray, neglected and abused animals. Come join an incredible team of hardworking people and help our cause. Responsibilities range from basic care (walking, feeding, socialising), scrubbing kennels, cleaning cat cages and litter trays, scrubbing outdoor dog areas and picking up poop, doing laundry, giving tours of the centre to visiting tourists and more.

The minimum period to volunteer is one month and volunteers will receive free, basic but comfortable accommodation subject to availability (food is at your own expense). You will have support the whole time you stay with us, an introduction to the island and a great experience! Successful candidates will need to be hardworking, enthusiastic, ready to learn new things and proactive. For all long-term volunteers there’s a complimentary Thai cooking class, plus discount prices at our founder's restaurant and beach bar.



By joining the team at Lanta Animal Welfare you will be contributing to the growth of the ONLY animal response facility on the entire island of Koh Lanta. Our presence is crucial for the community and we are very dependent on people to bring fresh ideas that will help us become the best we can be. The work you put in to help the animals will be immediately gratifying, as we have many residents who depend on us to keep them clean, safe, healthy and happy. Without us, there would be no hope.



Good health, a willingness to work hard, tolerance for a tropical environment and animal husbandry. A background in working with animals is preferred but not essential.

Duration / Dates

We require committed volunteers all year round and are in urgent need from June to October.

Costs / Pay

The cost to volunteer with us is 10,000 THB (Thai baht). Of this, 5,000 THB is refunded at the end of the placement, subject to certain criteria which will be explained before any payment is made.
