Animal Welfare

Explorekohsamet.com is proud to support the dedicated individuals at Animal Welfare Koh Samet with their non profit efforts to support stray animals. The Reservoir Dogs Project is their most well known project where they routinely feed the 40+ stray dogs that have been discarded over the years at 17.00 everyday at the reservoir. When the team started there were some kindhearted locals trying to feed the dogs but it was a massive ask and with no organisation it lead to lots of  waste. Now food is distributed so that all animals get a fair feed and they have relocated all feeding areas so they are safe from passing traffic and as not to interfere with those exercising around the reservoir.

Apart from the daily feeding routine which is great for keeping the animals well fed and teaching them to trust people this organisation is dedicated to medically supporting animals across the island. If they can help they will, if you see an animal in need please try to take pictures of the dog and its ailment and you can email them to animalskohsamet @ gmail.com and they will see what they can do to to help. They are constantly making plans to have Vets come to the island to help with sterilisation drives to try and curb the number of unwanted animals being born on the island.

If you would like more information about the projects please visit facebook This is a project that the island has been in need of for many years and we at www.explorekohsamet.com are very pleased to be Animal Welfare Koh Samet’s biggest supporters and will continue to support them as they grow.
