The faster we can get to an animal in peril, the faster it can receive medical treatment. We get calls every day for animals in desperate situations. We do all we can to immediately help the animal, but with one vehicle, the time to get to the animal can become days. Our one truck is constantly on the go, often unavailable for days on end. A dedicated Rescue Vehicle is critically needed, that is stocked with catching and medical supplies so we can begin to treat the animals immediately.
At Lanta Animal Welfare, we receive many requests every day about animals in critical situations. Our current '1 vehicle' severely limits our ability to help all the animals in need. Our footprint is growing to include Koh Lanta, the surrounding islands and the mainland, so calls are increasing. Our 1 vehicle can be away for days on mobile clinics and getting supplies for our clinic. Our delayed response to animals means many die in terrible pain or suffer for days waiting for help.
A dedicated rescue ambulance will ensure that the suffering animals get the treatment they deserve. Our medical team will be able to quickly respond to the animal's needs with immediate diagnosis and life-saving surgery on the spot. Lanta Animal Welfare will be able to better serve the suffering animals a dedicated ambulance available at all times. More lives will be saved, sterilization clinics can increase, and less animals will suffer while waiting for medical help.
Lanta Animal Welfare, with a dedicated equipped ambulance, will be able to meet the animal rescue needs of the growing local community, what is now expanding to the mainland and surrounding islands. The locals will be more confident in our ability to relieve the pain and suffering of animals and turn to us when animals are in peril. And, we will be able to hire a rescue team, vet, nurse and driver, from the local community, which will further endear us to the local communities in our area.
