  • Description


    Non Profit Organisation


    We are an association of animal activists and veterinarians who have made it their goal to give animals on Koh Chang a voice. The fight against the overpopulation of unwanted street dogs and cats has top priority. Divided Into 2 Groups.

    Our teams are supervised by our Veterinarian.

    Our Streetwork Team that feeds the hungy dogs on the street and bring them for spaying (our main task)

    Our Team Lead by Agnieszka is the Place Where Your Adventure with Our Volunteer Project Will Begin:

    This is an extraordinary place that can not be described in one word. Fully functions:
    - Care for animals that simply do not survive on the street (these are most often old dogs, with chronic diseases, blind, paralyzed etc)
    - if possible, it provides support in caring for the animal until it recovers - these are often skin diseases that take months to heal, or a long convalescence after complicated surgical procedures
    because street animals are most often very scared and shy, we try to they can take an active part in the life of our volunteers:
    living with them in a room, they are with them when they carry out works and projects, but also accompany us in our private life: they go to shops, visit the beach
    - we always try to involve our pupils - we try to make sure that the animals are not afraid of sounds and movements of the environment

    At present, there are 22 adult dogs. Some animals are prepared for adoptions , some are temporarily and some are permanently with as.

    The centre is located in a close-near (5 min drive) from the port city Klong Son in which you can find shops like 7/11 or mini bigC, local street food and fruits stands. The beach is 7 minutes with a scooter. A river and a waterfall located in the nearby. The place of our centre was carefully selected - from a distance from tourist attractions, nightlife and a town. It is surrounded by mountains, fruit farms and calm trees-it’s OASIS.

    We waiting for your message!
