PhaNgan Animal Care (PAC) is a non-profit organization based in Wok Tum, Koh PhaNgan
(near the hospital)
11 years ago, the island of Koh PhaNgan had no form of veterinary care.
Both owned animals and stray animals roamed the streets in large numbers looking for scraps of food.
Many of these were suffering from malnutrition, disease, injuries and mange.
The odd one would be taken to Koh Samui for treatment by a kindly tourist or local resident but most were left to suffer for agonizing amounts of time.
What is PAC?
PAC was established by Irish veterinarian; Shevaun Gallwey in September 2001 sfter she visited Koh PhaNgan and saw the situation for many of the animals here.
PAC is a small team of staff and volunteers who travel the island, providing nursing care to the stray and temple animals. They also carry out a successful spay and neuter program when volunteer vets come to visit, host rabies vaccination camps regularly around the island and have a hospital for patients that need more regular or long term care.
PAC is a hospital & not a shelter.
Unfortunately they cannot take in healthy animals for re-homing.
How you can help
If you see an animal in need, either sick or injured please contact PAC on 089 875 7513 or email us at email@example.com with details of the animal - eg. location, colour/markings, male or female and problem.
As an organization they rely 100% on donations so please look out for the donations boxes in various resorts, bars, restaurants and shops around the island or drop by the centre with your donation and help to improve the lives of the animals you see around you.
PAC also relies heavily on volunteers.
If you are a vet or veterinary nurse and want to use your skills and knowledge to make a big difference to the animals here please get in touch. As PAC only has one permanent nurse who is kept very busy attending to all the sick stray animals on the island, your help would be greatly appreciated.
If you are an animal lover and want to make a difference, perhaps you would consider a longer stay.
By dedicating just 3-4 days a week to PAC for a minimum time of 3 months, (longer period required for training) you would really be able to get involved in the day to day running of the clinic. Assist the nurse in giving treatment to the animals, take care of the animals in the hospital and of course, play with the puppies.

14 months ago, I embarked on a journey with PhaNgan Animal Care.
Today that journey has come to its end!
It's been an absolute rollercoaster of a ride here at PAC and I have LOVED every second of it. I have enjoyed sharing our stories with you, and hearing all your supportive comments.
PAC will continue, as will the facebook page, but I (Laura) must move on to other things.
It has been a pleasure working with the team here and all the volunteers - I love you all! Boogley, Paris, Bully and Squealer - you all have a special place in my heart and I will remember each and every one of you and the wonderful times we had together!
To all of our supporters - you are all truly wonderful people with lovely, caring hearts!
I wish PAC all the best in the future and I will be keeping myself updated with your work through this page (although I'm sorry to say I will no longer be writing it)
Lot's of love in my last PAC post. xxxxxXxxxxx
