PAWS: Phuket Animal Welfare Society

 Phuket Animal Welfare Society

Phuket is world-renowned for its natural beauty - surrounded by the fertile Andaman Sea, skirted by white sandy beaches and home to exotic peoples and their culture. Alas, Phuket is also home to thousands of unwanted dogs and cats. Phuket's developing tourism and infrastructure has provided an environment conducive to a rapid rise in the stray animal population. Without proper care, these hapless animals suffer from malnutrition, skin disease, parasites and injury. To many people, they are a source of anguish and fear. Yet this sad situation does not have to continue. With vision, compassion and dedication, we CAN do something toward a positive change


Accepting the Challenge

Founded in 1996 and formerly known300 as the Phuket Animal Support Group (P.A.S.G), P.A.W.S is a non-profit, volunteer organisation that has accepted the challenge of changing the plight of Phuket's stray animal population. P.A.W.S is made up of concerned members from the local Thai and expatriate community. We are also supported by the World Society for the Protection of Animals (W.S.P.A). W.S.P.A. has representation at the U.N and the W.H.O.


As there is no animal pound or shelter in Phuket, P.A.W.S volunteers GO TO the animals - to the villages, the temples, beaches and hotels.
There they

      • feed
      • sterilize
      • vaccinate (e.g.Rabies)
      • treat diseases/injuries

P.A.W.S is also involved with educating the local community in responsible pet care, so that our goals are not simply met but sustained for generations to come.


Funds for the continuation of P.A.W.S' work come from local fundraising activities, hotel/resort projects and tourist donations. The international animal welfare organisation, W.S.P.A provide us with technical guidance and equipment. Local and international veterinarians donate their time, advice and expertise.

P.A.W.S is also respectful and thankful of their relationship with the local government who help with the supply of medicines and surgical supplies.
