Create an itinerary including Lanta Animal Welfare
Lanta Animal Welfare is a nonprofit charity in southwest Thailand dedicated to improving the lives of animals and relieving their pain and suffering. It's a rescue and rehabilitation center that also runs sterilization and rabies vaccination mobile clinics on Koh Lanta and surrounding islands and regions. It receives no government support and relies on private donations from people around the world. Visit the center and take dogs for walks along the picturesque beach, or cuddle with cats in a fun, safe environment. These animals lived hard lives before they were rescued, and love to meet people and receive affection. If you find a new best friend you simply cannot part with, look into the rehoming program for these animals who deserve a loving home after all they've been through. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Ko Lanta trip simple and quick.

  • They do such good work for the (stray) animals on Koh Lanta and other Islands as well. Go here, get the tour, see cute animals and make a donation!

  • Most wonderful animal sanctuary, so much space for every animal and all of them are taken care of with a lot of love by all the employees and volunteers. It is great to see all the effort that is put into helping all the street dogs and cats on the island. Another great thing: they help everybody who brings a hurt animal there without charging money if the people don't have any. They rely exclusively on sponsors and donations. If you have the chance, please go and visit the tour through the clinic (10:45 am) and donate a bit of money, they absolutely deserve it.
  • Amazing place, the animals are so well cared for, we've never seen anywhere like it. The staff are fantastic and Junie has created something really special here. We met Rigby the dog on our first visit and decided to adopt almost instantly. You must visit if you come to Lanta and have the slightest interest in animal welfare, or even if you don't. I think we can all learn something from their work.
  • I love this place. I see there so much great work to build up a fantastic rescue station!! Big Respect!! Must Visit!
  • Worth a visit to support these animals! 200 Baht donation for the daily tour. They also have a gift shop where your money goes straight to the care of the animals. They really care for them. Many of them were abandoned, surrendered or found hurt by motor accidents or people (disgusting humans!!) They try their best to educate the public that animals need love and are not "dirty" which is what many people believe. They perform surgeries, neutering and spaying, give all the animals the shots they need. They are the reason why there are so many happy & healthy animals on Ko Lanta. They also need volunteers. Since Covid they don’t have as many so if you can spare the time, please reach out to help volunteer during your stay here! They are doing hard work and need all the support! ♥️♥️🙏🙏🐱🐶
  • Experience a completely different aspect of Thailand while refilling your karma by supporting an important cause… a humbling experience to see such knowledgeable and passionate people volunteering and working here!
