ABOUT THE charity
Established in 2003, this organization’s mission to improve the welfare of dogs and cats in Asia, resulting in better lives for both the animal and human communities, to create a society without homeless animals, and to ultimately end animal cruelty. The organization’s programs reduces the amount of street dogs and cats. With vaccinating and sterilizing both dogs and cats, they reduce the population of street animals, eliminating rabies and better the living conditions for both humans and animals.
Upon arrival to Phuket International Airport, the videographer will be picked up by the organization’s in-country coordinator and introduced to the organization’s team at the shelter.
