About a month ago, Mustafa and I visited the island of Koh Lanta, Thailand. While we were there we decided to visit the number one attraction on TripAdvisor – The Koh Lanta Animal Welfare.
What we found was an enchanting place where volunteers from around the world came to take care of sick dogs and cats for a few days or a few weeks at a time. We just spent a few hours there and it was hard for us to leave because the animals were all so friendly and lovable and in need of permanent homes.
This lovely shelter is not only a temporary home for lost animals, it is also a sterilization center and the work that the vets and the rest of the staff do there is stupendous.
It really got me to thinking, what about those who have pets and need/want to travel? So far I’ve found a really great service for dogs for those in the UK and the Western European countries called DogBuddy.
That being said, I also encourage you to check out the Koh Lanta Animal Welfare’s Facebook page, read up on their amazing history and the touching stories of their beautiful animals:
