Woman Moves To Island Crowded With Stray Animals And Changes Everything

Koh Lanta, an island in southern Thailand, used to have a big problem with stray animals 15 years ago. Many of the animals on Koh Lanta were starving and injured. A trip to the veterinarian was a three-hour journey to the mainland.

Locals saw the strays dogs as a nuisance, and they were often killed.

Junie Kovacs moved to Koh Lanta and opened a cooking school.

But all the strays on the island kept gnawing at her soul. She remembered thinking that she had to do something.

Kovacs turned her cooking school into a restaurant and called it Time for Lime.

Using proceeds from her business, she opened an animal sanctuary that had a 24-hour veterinary clinic in 2005.

Animals were able to leave the island and find homes around the world.

Kovacs said all the animals at the sanctuary are in need and is not for having an overfilled sanctuary.

The countless volunteers get caught up in the compassion that now exists on Koh Lanta.
