You may see a lot of stray dogs and cats here, many of which are fed and looked after well by resorts, restaurants and locals. There are also many that suffer from starvation, disease and abuse. Lanta Animal Welfare (LAW) is a charity organization founded to relieve the suffering and pain of the animals on Koh Lanta.

Care and housing for abused / neglected strays comes at a cost – donations and volunteers are desperately needed. If you would like to help please visit You can also  do your bit and enjoy yourself: go and eat a meal at Time For Lime (Klong Dao). It’s run by the founder of LAW who generously gives all her profits to this charity.
