Overview

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 centre every hour, between 10am and 4pm. If a rescue dog needs exercising, visitors with appropriate experience may take them on one of our three walking routes. The best time to exercise a rescue dog is from 8.30am - 11am or 15:00-17:00. We do not walk our dogs in the heat of the day. 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. NOW OPEN: Kitty City and Kitty Cafe! Enjoy a bite to eat or a refreshing iced tea while hanging out with our rescued cats.

The Lanta Animal Welfare does amazing work and really informs it's visitors on how they're helping. Totally worth a visit and so rewarding meeting all the animals and volunteers. A must see on Koh Lanta.

I had a great afternoon visiting the Kitty City at Lanta Animal Welfare and taking a rescue dog for a beautiful walk on the beach. They’re doing great work on the island and I was nice to help out, even just for a few hours
