Hua Hin-based animal charity Rescue Paws has recently launched a four-hour Day Visit Program (B1,280/person) that allows holiday makers to interact with dogs and puppies, while learning about the not-for-profit's rescue and rehabilitation work. Befriend the pups with a feeding session before taking them for a run and swim at the beach. After that, you can spend the afternoon playing with the dogs at the charity’s base, located on temple grounds next to beautiful Khao Tao Lake. Local transport and a Thai lunch is included in the fee, with the rest of the profits going towards caring for the animals. If you fall in love, you can even opt to adopt at the end of your visit.
