Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand

When planning our trip to Thailand, and after hearing so much about animal exploitation and cruelty there, we wanted to make sure we paid a visit to a proper animal sanctuary.  A friend recommended the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand (WFFT).  We decided to give it a go….
