We are a registered animal welfare charity in North Eastern Thailand, giving sanctuary to 430+ abused, abandoned, injured & disabled dogs & 90 cats - many of them rescued from the horrific dog meat trade on our borders.
For a uniquely authentic experience, venture off the beaten tracks of Thailand, join our team and share our world - it will be one you'll never forget!
Our ideal volunteer is a passionate, hardworking, motivated and mature (regardless of age) animal enthusiast - someone who is committed, proactive and independent, willing to roll up their sleeves and do what needs to be done, and ready to brave difficult situations - helping at our sanctuary can be emotionally challenging.
We host people from all walks of life - if you can show love to our animals, you are welcome!
Socialization is one of our biggest needs, so a working knowledge or experience in dog training/behavior and animal handling (eg. moving disabled dogs in & out of wheelchairs, hydrotherapy, enrichment practices, etc.) would be valued bonus.
Other ways in which we'd appreciate a helping hand are also things like handyman tasks/ building maintenance, marketing & social media, web design/ development, fundraising initiatives and general admin tasks such as maintaining our animal shelter records.
The main part of our work here at the foundation is socializing and walking our dogs along with some cleaning duties and helping our staff clean the runs in the morning.
As well as general volunteers to help with the above we would love to host the following:
Animals caregiver to take care and socialize out dogs and other animals
Adoptions Coordinator to concentrate on finding our dogs new homes
Social media experts to help us and our cause on Instagram, FB and all social media platforms
We are also always on the lookout for photographers and/or videographers to carry & promote our message to the world.
We welcome any help and we are keen to host long term volunteers as well as short holiday volunteers.
There is a national park nearby, lake scenery and many hidden villages to discover.
Please note that travel /health insurance is mandatory to volunteer with us.
The Volunteer House is located in the shelter area.
We have two rooms - one big shared room 4 single beds and a smaller private room with 2 single beds suitable for a couple.
The fee is $6/day or 220 baht. In return you get 2 meals and for dinner food is available which the volunteer can prepare in the kitchen to cook by themselves. It comes with unlimited drinking water, coffee and use of our pool, communal kitchen and we also have a laundry machine available free of use.
We would love for you to join our team and meet our furry friends - you are sure to lose your heart!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

We are a private animal shelter located deep in the heart of Thailand, where dogs rescued over 550 dogs from the illegal dog meat trade, abusive situations and accidents, as well as other animals, have found a new, loving home. Many of these animals come to us so traumatized that they have lost all trust in mankind. It may take years of intensive socialization before these dogs are ever ready to trust humans again.
We are a private animal shelter located deep in the heart of Thailand founded in 2010 and becoming a foundation in 2017.
