Summer-Low Season at Lanta Animal Welfare May 2024

By Perley-Ann Friedman | Global Giving Project Manager

So many cats on Lanta Noi
So many cats on Lanta Noi

Koh Lanta is relatively quiet now that the busy tourist season is over. We can focus more on our outreach during these quiet summer months as there are relatively few tourists. The sea is rough and the nights are stormy due to the monsoon winds that blow towards us until they turn away in the Fall. Due to your support and generosity, we can make plans, ensure we have adequate medical supplies, and schedule our outreach to the local community.

Mobile Sterilization Clinic on Koh Lanta Noi

In May we had a very successful mobile sterilization clinic on Koh Lanta Noi, the island between our island and the mainland. To distinguish the islands, we are called Lanta Yai (Long), and the small island is called Lanta Noi (Small).

This small island is home to many of the Thais that work the businesses on Koh Lanta. It is not a tourist island, as it has no resorts, restaurants nor bars. It is truly homestgead and a drive-thru island, joining the ferry to the mainland, with the bridge to Koh Lanta, where Lanta Animal Welfare is located.

The locals on Lanta Noi had been telling us about many cats in desperate situations on their island. We had our Mobile Clinic Manager spend time there investigating the situation. In addition to assessing the cat population’s needs, meetings were held with government representatives and members of the various community groups. These meetings planed and scheduled the mobile clinic location and dates, as well as informing the community through the many mosques and local news announcements.

Our 3 day clinic sterilized 72 cats and provided medical care and vaccinations to dozens more. The participation of the locals was excellent, with so many bringing their cats for sterilization and medical care. We also had our team of catchers in the villages and the jungle bringing the stray cats to the clinic site. The clinic was open from dawn til dusk with continuous activities through the long days.

The math here is mind-boggling. Since every cat has the potential for 80 offspring, the clinic prevented the birth of approximately 5,700 kittens who would have been unwanted, subjected to starvation, disease, and suffering.

It was a busy few days, with great results.

I am providing a short video made during this clinic that I hope you enjoy.

Openings at Lanta Animal Welfare

Similar to any organization we have staff turnover. This year we see a few of our long-time and cherished staff retiring. This gave us the opportunity to take a good look inwards and do a bit of restructuring. We are now better positioned to continue our rescue and medical services well into the future.

We have 3 openings that I want to tell you about. While we would love to have you, our supporters, come to Koh Lanta in one of these roles, we know that this is probably not going to happen. It is very difficult to find qualified resources, so we are looking everywhere we can to spread the word. I would like you to ask you to share this newsletter/information with your family and friends. Maybe someone in your circle would be interested, or know someone who would be.

Centre Director – This role is responsible for the general daily operations and program management of Lanta Animal Welfare, reporting to the Board. The focus is to oversee the Centre staff to carry out their goals, policies and objectives, including job performance, conflict resolution, and payroll. The resource will also represent the organisation in the community.

Fundraising-Marketing Manager – The role is responsible for the development, delivery and reporting, of all fundraising and marketing activities across all online channels, including MailChimp, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and so on. Using the stories of the sick and injured animals, the volunteers, and day to day life at the centre, LAW will come to life online, engage readers, grow the donor base and source donations.

Dog Behaviorist/Trainer – This role focuses on dog training, behavioural assessments, practical implementations, and staff dog training. Many of our rescue dog are suffering from PTSD from their situations pre-rescue, and need special attention and care as they recover from their trauma.

I have provided a link to our Website so you can get more information and application details for these vacancies.

The summer is around the corner and I wish you all a peaceful and happy time.

I do hope you have enjoyed your current glimpse into Lanta Animal Welfare.

Until the next report…
