Voluntary service in Thailand - protecting street dogs and cats

Pays d’action: Thaïlande, Asie
Type d’activité: Missions avec animaux et vétérinaires, Ecovolontariat
The project to protect the strays on the Thai island of Ko Lanta was founded when reconstruction work began, after the tsunami in the previous year. Their population rapidly grew and aggravated the situation. The project tries to improve the situation for stray dogs and cats through an extensive sterilisation programme.

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

Doing voluntary service in the animal protection project on Ko Lanta is an exciting experience: no two days are the same and the international participants fulfil a wide range of duties. You will take the dogs for walks on the beach, play with kittens and wash the animals.

You will soon have a good relationship with them as you will also feed them and administer medication. Other typical tasks involve cleaning the centre and scouring the island for more animals in need. Doing voluntary service in this rescue base for stray dogs and cats, you will be making an important contribution to the wellbeing of animals in Thailand. The dogs and cats will benefit from your commitment and you will learn much that is new. You will be able to discuss things with other volunteers, as there are usually six to twelve animal rights’ activists working on the programme at any one time.

With the programme, uncontrolled breeding can be prevented and the animals are no longer exposed to hunger, injury, disease and violent death. This animal welfare project also deals with sick and injured animals. A mobile clinic visits the neighbouring islands to sterilise and inoculate the animals there. At the same time, the initiative endeavours to make the locals aware of the strays’ predicament and respect them. To do this, the situation is explained to children in schools in order to create a better relationship between man and animal. You can play an active role in this project in the form of voluntary service and make a lasting difference to the animals’ living conditions. During the project all participants will be provided with breakfast and lunch in a nearby restaurant five days a week (Monday through Friday). At the weekend and in the evening they need to take care of their meals themselves.

Please note: In order to take part in the project, you must be at least 21 years old. Furthermore, we will ask you to travel to Thailand a few days before the project starts in order to get adjusted to the new time zone and the tropical climate. For these first few nights, you will be responsible for accommodation and meals.
