Our mission is to reduce the suffering of stray and wild animals on Koh Phangan. Phangan Animal Care For Strays Foundation is a non-profit organization operating on the island of Koh Phangan in Thailand. We are an animal hospital that provides life-saving medical treatment, vaccinations, and sterilisations to stray and wild animals of Koh Phangan. We receive no government funding and rely entirely on donations and volunteers to provide these vital services to the animals of the island.
Without financial donations, PACS would not be able to survive, however, there are many other ways to support PACS from donating crucial things like dog and cat food, hosting a fundraiser, raising awareness via social media or even visiting our Community Shop (based onsite at PACS). All of the items have been donated by locals and tourists who are leaving the island. There are all sorts of items in the shops, clothing, bedding, household items, shoes, bags, books, electrical items and many more things. You can also donate things to the shop, please use the link below for our contact details:
If you're going to volunteer somewhere, it might as well be in paradise! It would be impossible for PACS to give its many patients adequate care without the help of volunteers. It doesn't matter whether you are a trained veterinarian, marketing professional, or just a dog lover - there are volunteer opportunities for everyone at PACS! We only ask that you are a friendly, happy person, with a love for animals and a dedication to help them. Learn here about the various ways you can contribute your time to help Koh Phangan's stray animals.
