Rescue Paws is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of stray animals in Thailand.
From humble beginnings in 2013 as a simple feeding program, the organization officially came into existence during May 2014, when XploreAsia based in Thailand and The Global Work & Travel Co. based in Australia generously made funds available to erect 12 kennels and equip a small clinic with basic equipment.
Rescue Paws has since grown exponentially into a fully fledged animal relief organization, targeting the stray animal problem in the Hua Hin region of Thailand.
Our organization is operated by a small team of full-time staff and a group of volunteers who carry out day-to-day activities. While some volunteers are trained animal care specialists, volunteer vets and vet students, others are inexperienced but passionate animal lovers seeking a unique travel-abroad experience.
Based on temple grounds in the authentic Thai village of Khao Tao in the Hua Hin district just south of Bangkok, our facilities include 12 kennels, a play area and a clinic to perform surgeries.
From these premises we coordinate and conduct sterilizations, vaccinations, parasite treatment, veterinary care and rehabilitation for abandoned, mistreated stray animals and venture out to the surrounding villages to perform fieldwork.
Rescue Paws also facilitates local and international adoptions; encourages and promotes respect for animals, animal care and animal welfare through comprehensive educational campaigns in local communities and schools; fosters local & global civic engagement by actively engaging volunteers from all across the world and developing local stakeholder participation.
