Owner description: 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 center every hour, on the hour, between 10am and 4pm. We have lots of friendly dogs who would love a long walk and cats who would like a cuddle! (Please note there is generally no dogwalking between 11-3 as it gets too hot for them!). 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.

We spent the morning at the animal welfare centre and although one or two of the stories were upsetting the whole experience was great!! We were able to help out by taking two of the dogs "Lady" and "Biscuit" down to the beach for a lovely walk. Both myself and my partner are animal lovers and enjoyed spending time with the cats and dogs at the shelter. Would totally recommend visiting the shelter and please take the dogs for a walk as it is greatly appreciated!!

This is a well-run animal shelter that evidently carries out very important animal rescue work on the island. After a short tour of the premises (lots of outdoor space for the dogs), we took two dogs for a walk on the beach. It was a nice way to spend time on the island on our non-diving day.

A nicely kept animal shelter. Gives a view of why and what. Also gives you a insight in ko lanta behind all the tourist stuff.

My partner and I had read the reviews on Tripadvisor and decided that we would go and have a look for ourselves. As soon as we got there, we got to take 2 beautiful dogs for a walk on the beach. This was awesome. We are both serious animal lovers and it was so nice and enjoyable to spend some carefree time with these beautiful animals! We then had a tour around the welfare centre. The work they are doing is incomparable to anything else I have seen. It's really an incredibly commendable venture and, if you can, please go and support it in any way possible. Yes, some of the stories are sad and horrible, but the improvement in the animals is enough to inspire even the biggest grinch!
I should also mention, that we decided to go to Time for Lime for dinner and the food and atmosphere was also wonderful.
We both thoroughly recommend going to the animal welfare shelter and observing the amazing work these guys are doing. Plus, there's ALOT of very cute animals to play with. Win-win, really.
