Below are just a few of the lucky ones who found homes outside Thailand with the help of Lanta Animal Welfare!
|Bobby- Adopted to Germany|
|All our volunteers knew what a naughty cat Bobby was, always defying obstacles and trying to sneak inside the centre where cats are not allowed.
However eventually almost everybody starts to warm upto Bobby’s antics.
Bobby came in when he was a kitten when he was found being abused. He stayed at the centre for almost 2 years. Always chilled and cool.
Then came Tamara and her family who decided to adopt him.
He flew to Germany in June of 2016 and is keeping to his true self being cheeky, charming cool and calm just as he was here.He is currently in the process of trying the charm on his older sister who is not that impressed by this Thai boy but we are certain that even Cleo won’t be able to resist Bobby’s worldly charm for too long!
|Skyla- Adopted to Germany|
|Skyla and her sister were rescued by a few of our volunteers when they were on the nearby island Phi Phi as they were being taken to the sea by a man with the intention of drowning them
Her sister was adopted locally whilst Skyla was adopted by Felice and her family in Germany who are very much in love with her albeit her slight shyness of bigger dogs. Her new owners describe her as a sweet and very intelligent doggie.
Considering her traumatic past Skylar did indeed grow up to be a wonderful laid back pup who is a fine example of what some TLC can do.
|Ivy- Adopted to UK|
|Ivy came from the mainland with her 2 sisters with massive maggot filled wounds on the back of their necks.
While they only came to the centre for treatment they were all able to charm themselves into finding forever homes.
Ivy was adopted by one of our volunteers who was here at the time and flew to the UK in April of 2016.
We hear that Ivy is a bit of a star in the neighborhood now with her exotic beautiful appearance.She goes for walks and car rides and of course snoozin away in comfort.
|Nit Noy- Adopted to Germany|
|Nit Noy and her sister were rescued after being found under a drain in the rain, rescued by a couple who were living on the island. The initial plan was for the 2 sisters to fly to the UK but the adoption fell through due to unavoidable circumstances.
However, it was a happy ending for Nit Noy who caught the attention of a family who met her when they were visiting the centre and decided to offer her a forever home.
Nit Noy (Left) is now living with her new family since April 2016.
|Storm- Adopted to Sweden|
|Storm came to LAW as a puppy creeping into the dog areas after a heavy storm (hence the name). She was such a lovely dog who was at the centre for a while before her new family found her and fell in love with her.
Storm has a small build so naturally they were concerned about how well she will adapt to the very cold climate in the North of Sweden where they are living but Storm has awed all with the way she has adjusted herself enjoying long hiking trips with her parents and at one point it seemed like she might have been “tracking a reindeer” with her highly attuned senses.
It has indeed been a wonder to hear how the once shy Storm has transformed herself and is doing so well with her new family
|Penny- Adopted to Canada
Penny and her sisters were dumped at the centre last year but soon found homes. While two of the sisters found homes right here on Koh Lanta, Penny who was the feisty one of the litter was adopted to Canada earlier in 2016 while the other sister went to the UK.
Penny has a big family of 3 siblings and her new mum and dad. She’s made many friends in the neighborhood too.
See her Penny in action in this video on our Facebook page :https://goo.gl/KRUrk0
|Uno- Adopted to Sweden|
|Uno was abandoned by his original owners and Mia who was on the island at the time offered to foster him and as it happens her mother fell in love with Uno and very soon Uno was getting ready to fly to Sweden.
He went to Sweden in April 2016 and here he is (Right) with his brother who was also adopted from Koh Lanta, enjoying the cooler climate.
|Rosie- Adopted to Sweden|
|Rosie and her family of siblings came to the centre with her very feral mum in April 2015. The pups were all lucky to have found homes almost immediately but Rosie and her sister had to wait a bit longer before the right family came along and they did. In fact it didn’t take very long for them to fall in love with her after they met her.
She went to Sweden to her new family and an older brother as well.
She now goes walks by lakes and hiking too.
|DENG- Adopted Locally|
|Deng turned up at Time For Lime Bar/B&B (LAW’s only sponsor) , skinny and in shambles a few years ago and decided he was just going to stay there. He lived with his best bud Dam and later moved to the LAW centre to see if an unsuspecting human would catch his eye and he could adopt them or himself. And he did!
He found a great home locally on the island with a lovely family. He has plenty of room to run around and a goat he now calls his brother ;D
|Konee Adopted-Now in UK!|
|Konee came to LAW after she met with an accident that cost her, a hind leg. She had an owner who never came back for her s she ended up joining our feline gang at the LAW centre.
But it was all a good thing because Jack and Katherine who visited LAW soon found her hopping around the center and fell in love with her so much that they wanted to take her home.
They returned to get her when she was ready to fly and took her to join her new family of 3 other rescue felines.
Konee has always been brave and a fighter and she made it safe to the UK with her new parents who will never abandon her and will give her a lifetime of love and security.
|Lily Adopted-Now in Sweden!|
|Lily and her 7 siblings were brought to the centre when their mum was found under a house with the new born puppies in an area where they were in danger. Almost the whole family found homes when they were young but Lily and Rosie remained at the centre until Sebastian and his family came across Lily on their holiday. It was almost love at first sight when they decided almost instantly to adopt Lily.
She flew to Sweden in March 2016 and loves her new family especially her human sister and brother.
|DAM Adopted-Now in Finland!|
|Dam came to Time for Lime as an abandoned dog and decided not to leave and lived there with his best buddy Deng.

Dam’s was always a smart boy taking bike rides, swimming and now learning Finnish now we hear.
|Brownie Adopted-Now in Finland!|
|Brownie ‘s story as well as her adoption is one amazing tale.
She was an unwanted girl who got unlucky with wherever she went and from what we knew she was being passed around from place to place and long story short she met with an accident and came to the centre with an injured hip. She recovered fully but we kept her fearing for her accident prone life.Almost a year later Riita and Ese turned up at the centre looking for Brownie. The previous year when they were on Lanta they had been looking after Brownie until she went missing. It seems this was when Brownie met with her accident and was brought to LAW. Ese and Riitta returned to look for her AND to take her home. So our lovely Brownie went to Finland to the parents who she truly belongs to and is her best self going for walks proudly telling everyone in Finland how she is the luckiest girl in the world.
|ROLO Adopted-Now in UK!|
|Rolo was last of the Muffin pups to get adopted waited almost year to find her forever family. It was meant to be as Rolo’s adopter Kate saw pictures of her a year ago and fell in love with her.

|Muffin and Cookie Adopted-Now in UK!|
|Muffin came to LAW, emaciated and ill with blood parasites on top of being pregnant with 5 pups who were later born at the centre: Buttons, Twix, Freddo ad Wispa and Rolo. She was one affectionate dog and stole the heart of Eve who volunteered with us.
Cookie was a neglected Shi-tzu who had many issues with her sensitive skin and kept returning too frequently for treatment. The owners gave her up and life only got better for Cookie afterwards because she is now in the UK living a pampered life as any dog should.

|Owen has been at LAW forever! He also lived through many health problems but still managed to come back strong and cuter! It was a surprise when a young lady from Canada offered Owen a forever home. Normally people go for the young pups or young adults but we knew this was a special and a true connection between Owen and Jess who adopted him. It was a long flight home for Owen but he still has a few lives left so made it safe and sound and has a deep bond with his new owner.
