Abused Animal & Veterinary Assistance, Cape Town
Duration: from 2.00 Weeks to 6.00 Weeks
Low rate of pet sterilization and pet care is a big problem in most parts of Cape Town. On this project you will work alongside experienced veterinarians who will train you in veterinary practice, help educate people from the disadvantaged communities on animal care, and be part of a pro-life rescue organisation whose main focus is to assist distressed pets from the townships. Your role will be varied and incredibly hands-on. During your volunteer placement you'll also have the opportunity to explore the beautiful Cape coast, soak up the stunning scenery and enjoy a wide variety of leisure activities like shark cage diving, learning to surf. Or you could simply choose to kick back and relax at the volunteer house, or experience some of Cape Town's vibrant night life!
