Educating local girls about cat care
Welcome to the first Project Report of 2019
We have upgraded the Global Giving Project to Include an Education Area
We have to start with the children if we want to make a lasting positive change for the animals on Koh Lanta. Lanta Animal Welfare needs to create an education area so that local kids can be taught to understand and respect animals, and to learn how to physically interact with them. While we do go to the local schools regularly, we need a place where we can interact with the animals on a more formal basis. We also want to provide interactive technology for the students, and their families. This includes video, apps and other ways of educating the locals on animal care, the importance of sterilization and a regular immunization and check-up program for the animals.
Over the years, we've seen heartbreaking case after another of animal cruelty and neglect. Although there has been noticeable improvement in the way the animals are treated, there is still much to do in shifting how animals are regarded overall.
You are now a part of the solution with you support of this project, that is maing a world of difference for the animals of Koh Lanta! Your donation, and your future donations towards this project will build the Kitty City Education Area. The area will change the attitudes of the locals towards the animals, starting with the children and moving through their parents, throughout their families. This will make lasting change for the animals a reality.
The Cherished Older Dogs at Lanta Animal Welfare
And now a bit of news on our 'dog' side of the Centre.
We have three amazing golden oldies at Lanta Animal Welfare. They are Yak, Sanchez and Wayne. These three senior dogs of LAW recently left their mark, literally. They each had their paw prints memorialized on the ground at the entrance of the Center.
They are a testament to what your support can do, despite their traumatic pasts, from being attacked by a pack of dogs, to suffering from hunger pangs and unbearable skin conditions, to seeking refuge from abuse, speeding cars, motorbikes, and harsh weather.
Without the monthly donations from our supporters, dogs like Yak, Sanchez and Wayne will die on the streets because we will not be able to continue helping them.
Please check the video found at the end of this report for a video of these dogs making their mark at the entrance to our facility.
