Lassie – Langkawi Animal Shelter & Sanctuary Foundation

http://www.langkawilassie.org.my  The Langkawi Animal Shelter and Sanctuary Foundation is set-up to receive, rehabilitate and care for neglected, abused and needy animals. The organization also runs the Langkawi Island Animal Clinic – a charity project aimed at the sterilization of the stray cat & dog population. Both are non profit ventures, staffed partly by volunteers and aimed at improving the lives of unwanted animals.

The Sanctuary aims for a no-kill policy and cares for animals whose age, disposition or disability make them unlikely to find homes. Many of our animals are road accident or trauma cases and therefore need special love and attention. These animals are given the opportunity to live out their lives with dignity.

Stray cats on the streets – the main issue here in Langkawi – are trapped and sterilized, then returned to their normal habitat. In this way the Sanctuary hopes to control the stray population. An adoption centre is also in operation. Animals put up for adoption are spayed/neutered, dewormed and vaccinated. Any wildlife brought to the shelter are treated and once healthy are then returned back to nature.

One of the centre’s objectives is to educate adults & children to ensure their peaceful co-existence with both their wild neighbours as well as domestic animals. An education programme with all schools on the island is currently being designed.
