Vet checks on 165 big cats and other wild animals


FOUR PAWS starts an unprecedented veterinary and animal care program to improve the welfare of captive wildlife in Thailand. Between December 2016 and March 2017, the international animal welfare organization set up a veterinary training program and examined approximately 165 big cats and other wild animals, including tigers from the infamous Tiger Temple.

More than 800 tigers abused for tourist entertainment


Wild animals are rapidly declining in numbers and being abused for tourist entertainment. It’s estimated that there were more than 800 tigers in Thai entertainment venues at the beginning of 2016. Several years ago, the Thai government introduced an animal welfare law that allows for the confiscation of illegally kept wildlife. FOUR PAWS supports Thai authorities in their efforts to improve animal welfare in the country. 

40 government veterinarians attended our training


We are thrilled that so many local veterinarians attended our training in March. We share with them our experience in treating the diseases that confiscated wild animals often suffer from, such as dental and eye problems.


The Thai government is to be commended for this great cooperation, which is unique and was conducted in a collegial atmosphere.

FOUR PAWS specialists showed the right use of modern medical equipment and gave lectures.
