  • Description


    This is an animal rescue in Pai, Northern Thailand providing sanctuary, rehabilitation and healthcare to street animals and more. Right now, the organisation's focus is answering calls for hurt or neglected animals, facilitating adoptions, and providing follow up healthcare to the animals we house as well as those in the outlying area. Our vision is to grow a compassionate care animal movement, including starting the region's only permanent mobile desexing program.

    We mostly deal with dogs although we help any animals need. We also have 9 pigs, a horse and a large garden to care for.

    What else ...

    Pai is packed with incredible natural features such as hot springs, waterfalls, caves, canyons and mountainous viewpoints. Nearby hostels and meditation centers in and around town offer massage, yoga, sound baths, saunas, reiki, and other wellness opportunities.

    We are an animal rescue, therefore, no animal products are provided or consumed onsite.

    Please be aware you need to arrive at 8 am on your first day and leave at 6 pm on your last day. This ensures you overlap with the outgoing volunteers to learn the jobs and meet the animals.
