Elephant sanctuary to build cat and dog clinic

An elephant sanctuary in Thailand has started building work on a new cat and dog veterinary clinic.

Large numbers of cats and dogs are regularly taken to the Boon Lott's Elephant Sanctuary (BLES) in Sukhothai for treatment. The charity proposed to build a clinic to provide life-saving veterinary care, as well as assist with general first aid and routine medical care for elephants in the area.

The project was chosen as the first ever winner of the WVS Animal Champions Award, a drive to support charities tackling a welfare project of their choice.

Funding awarded to the project will cover the cost of building the new clinic. A WVS veterinary team will also travel to Thailand and help with the first spay/neuter project for cats and dogs. The BLES Cats and Dogs Home Clinic is due to be unveiled on World Veterinary Day on April 26.
