What we say: 4.5 stars

At its modern facilities on the inland road from Haad Phra Ae, Lanta Animal Welfare (LAW) helps sick, injured and abused stray animals by providing sterilizations, rabies vaccinations, surgeries, education and general care. If you want to do give something back to the community, this is a great way to do it.

The facility is open daily 9:30 to 17:00, with tours offered on the hour. Visitors are welcome to walk a dog or cuddle a kitty while waiting. The tours show you around the facilities while relating how LAW's professional veteranarians neuter dogs and cats and provide a range of surgeries and treatments on site, including rabies vaccinations.

LAW also runs mobile clinics that reach Andaman islands as far afield as Ko Lipe, and educates students in the local schools on how to treat animals humanely and responsibly. Volunteers can get involved with these and other projects.

The non-profit organisation relies entirely on donations, so donations are appreciated. Those based in Thailand can adopt a dog or cat. Responsible, hard-working animal lovers who are able to commit for a minimum of one month are encouraged to volunteer. The cost is 5,000 baht, which includes simple accommodation and meals. Volunteers also get a free cooking class at Time For Lime.

You'll find LAW on the inland road that shoots east from Haad Phra Ae (just look for the sign).
