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

These guys do such a fantastic job, we visited whilst on our honeymoon & spent about 2 hours there! The tour was fab & all the staff we met were great! Go, cuddle the pussy-cats, walk the hounds & give a donation!

Amazing place, a well oiled operation with excellent dedicated staff - the tour was great and it's so good to see that there is an organisation on Koh Lanta taking care of the cats and dogs. Be sure to make a donation as the tour is free and the organisation runs on donations. A special place, you can walk some... More

We visited there twice during our stay in Ko Lanta. We really appreciate those volunteers who do so important and wonderful job while taking care of those animals. We took Sunday(?) for a walk and first it was kind of hard to get that stubborn little dog to move but after 20 minutes everything went well. I actually am sooo... More

Just back from a Lovley visit to the welfare . We were overwhelmed to see just how much this small organisation has done to help . Spend hours cuddling and falling in love with the little kittens and was worth our donation . From being around the south of Thailand I can see a massive difference in ill looking stray... More

Was not expecting to find a place like this in Koh Lanta. Had the opportunity to see the great work done by volunteers. Also got to walk some doggies on the beach.

It was really great to visit the animal shelter! They take very good care of the animals and if you want to you can do it as well. Walking the dogs, cuddling the cats (and kittens!), and if you want you can (and should) donate some money. GO THERE, if not you will miss something!!!

We visited Lanta animal welfare after reading trip advisor reviews. This place is great, volunteers take tours round the centre every hour, you can meet the dogs and cats and find out all about them. We took two 5 month old puppies for a walk on the beach after our tour. The centre never made you feel like you have... More

The work that these volunteers is doing is priceless. When we visited the facilities to walk a dog and play with cats, we were amazed at how well organized and laid out the whole operation was. Very knowledgeable staff. Various ways that people can help out (donations, purchasing of LAW merchandised items, walk/play with the animals, adopt a pet, help... More

Lanta Animal Welfare is a very well run, well kept animal welfare center for abandoned and stray dogs and cats on Ko Lanta. If elephant trekking is definitely not your thing and you appreciate the valiant effort of trying to help animals in need, the center is both worth a visit and your money.
