    Description

    Non Profit Organisation

    WE ARE THE VOICE OF THE VOICELESS

    We are an association of animal welfare 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 Tree Groups.

    Independent Street Workers Team & Help Point Team Both of WHICH ARE Supervised by Our Veterinarian.

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

    HELP POINT

    This is an extraordinary place that can not be described in one word. Fully functions of HP:
    - 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
    - SOCIALIZATION OF ANIMALS-
    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,in HP there are 22 adult dogs. Some animals are prepared for adoptions , some are temporarily and some are permanently with as.

    Help Point 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 Help Point was carefully selected - from a distance from tourist attractions, nightlife and a town. HP is surrounded by mountains, fruit farms and calm trees-it’s OASIS.

    We waiting for your message!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    in your free time, we recommend exploring the area. nature on Koh Chang island is amazing due to the unique microclimate. we have on the island, waterfalls, mangroves, empty beaches, places for snorkeling and diving with shipwrecks. due to covid-19, the island is quite empty, which favors the development of nature. don't worry though the top spots and attractions are open.
