Lanta Animal Welfare, Thailand is an animal shelter/welfare centre that I am very keen to support.
In 2011/12 I volunteered there for about 5 months, and so know first hand the staff and volunteers there care a great deal about the animals they help and look after, and promote positive changes in the community.
Yesterday, I sent a small donation to them (not much, but it will buy several meals for some of the animals) and shared on Facebook one of their notices seeking flight volunteers (when people from abroad adopt an animal from the shelter, flight volunteers are needed to help get them to their new home country, so I shared a page appealing to people travelling from Thailand to other parts of the world in the next few months to consider helping an animal reach its new home).
If anyone is thinking about volunteering abroad and like working with animals, I strongly suggest considering Lanta Animal Welfare. They really do amazing work and I had a life-changing time there.
