Owner description: Lanta Animal Welfare (LAW) is a non-profit organization based on Ko Lanta. 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.

“Well worth a visit if you're in Koh Lanta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

This is one of the top rated things to do in Koh Lanta and for good reason. I arrived there and the first thing I noticed was all the cute cats and kittens. You can cuddle with them all day if you want. And you can also get a tour of all the facilities and see all the work they do there. And, it's possible to take out some dogs for a walk to the beach or the forest as well. The volunteers that work there are quite friendly and are happy to give you information about the center and the work they do there.

“Great part of the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Loved our visit here. We got a tour of what they do, walked a couple lovely dogs, and met the amazing staff. Its horrible how some dogs on the island are treated, and incredible the love and support they get here. Highly recommend for a few hours.

“Superb place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Lanta animal welfare does a superb job of looking after all the stray cats and dogs on the island. The best thing about the place are all the kittens out front you can sit with or cuddle. A must see for animal lovers! Take the free tour but remember to take a donation with you which helps keep the place going. Superb

“Genuinely a must see!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

Being massive animal lovers and hearing nothing but great reviews about this place, my boyfriend and I decided to visit. We were not disappointed!
The centre is so relaxed and the volunteers are very friendly.
First, a lovely volunteer (can't remember her name but she had a nice tatoo on her leg) gave us a tour around the building and let us play with some dogs. Then we got to walk a couple of dogs to the beach! There are also cats and kittens running around which are adorable!
Honestly loved visiting the centre, the volunteers and everyone involves are truly doing a wonderful job! And there's a donation box so you can do your bit too!

“If you love animals go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

It's amazing what they are doing there with so little money. Take a scooter up there, play with the cats and walk some dogs. You can buy a drink there and give a donation every little helps. You can really see what a good job they are doing on lanta when you visit other islands and see many stray animals in poor condition.
