LAW's objective is to relieve the suffering and pain of the animals on the island through sterilisation and care. We are open to visitors everyday from 9am to 5pm when our volunteer staff will happily provide a guided tour of the shelter. We have lots of friendly dogs who would love a long walk and cats who would like a cuddle! 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. « less

Nice to give something back and to help the animals. It looks like the people working there really enjoy what there doing and are doing a great... More

Great place! Lovely people, lovely animals, great work in general! Visited several times; first for a tour, then just to hang out with the cats and dogs. I highly recommend a visit while on Lanta! :)

Go and enjoy (and support) the results of great love and care and commitment. At the first time we had a nice guided tour around. In the end we took some doggies for a walk to the beach.
