Help the cats and dogs on the beautiful island of Lanta, Thailand.

General volunteers
You’ll need a willingness to commit to hard work and a passion to help the cats and dogs on the beautiful island of Lanta, Thailand. A love of animals is essential but you’ll also need to be hard-working, motivated, friendly and mature, regardless of age (it’s all about your attitude). Working with us is an immensely rewarding and fulfilling experience but it’s no walk in the park, it requires commitment. This is a working holiday, and it is hard work including cleaning, gardening, maintenance and animal welfare duties. You’ll meet loads of great people and we know you’ll have lots of fun, but the animals come first. You’ll be expected to start your shift on time – this includes alternate 7.00am starts, so please think carefully about whether you’ll be able to commit to this – if the answer’s yes. Great.

Host volunteers
We also have limited places available for hosting volunteers, who would work in our reception and shop. You still get all the benefits of working with the animals too, but if you have experience in retail or reception, this might be better suited to your skills.

Vet volunteers
If you’re a qualified vet and would like to contribute longer term to controlling the overpopulation of strays and relieving the pain of suffering animals, then this is for you. You will need to be ready to work in hard conditions and witness difficult situations. You will sterilise animals on a daily basis as well as examine and treat pets. You will be on call out of hours to deal with emergencies and will sometimes be out roaming the island for strays as well. We particularly welcome experienced vets and vet nurses.
