  • Description

    Description

    We are a small clinic caring for Koh Phangan's stray, temple & wild animals and dedicated to improving the lives since 2001. We are a Non-Profit organization and rely entirely on donations, volunteers and sponsorship to carry out our work. Not only that, but we receive no government funding, and rely heavily on the good-will of the local community, tourists and friends.

    We provide medical care and have a dedicated neutering and vaccination program carried out with the help of volunteer vets and vet nurses.

    We provide daily hospital care for many animals who have more serious conditions, and also out-patient care.

    Our mission is to keep Koh Phangan Rabies Free, through vaccination and education.
    We control the dog and cat population through neutering of all stray and temple animals and through promotion of the neutering of owned animals. We provide nursing care to animals and educate the public in responsible animal care.
