Summary

Veterinary Medicine & Animal Care

We offer a range of different placements in Veterinary Medicine & Animal Care, including combined placements.

As a volunteer on a Veterinary Medicine project, you will gain some fantastic work experience and develop a better understanding of issues in developing communities. Shadowing local vets, you’ll learn how to handle different animals and will see examples of diseases and conditions that have almost been eradicated in developed countries.

Depending on the destination you choose, you may find yourself assisting with the treatment of domestic animals, administering vaccinations, observing surgery, or assisting in the laboratory.

We also welcome professionally qualified vets and veterinary nurses for volunteering placements. These professional volunteering placements allow you to put your skills and expertise to the best use through assisting with treatments as well as exchanging knowledge and ideas with the local staff.

 

 

We have a number of different types of Animal Care placements in some fantastic destinations, including animal shelters, rehabilitation centres and rescue centres.

Attitudes to animals can be very different in developing societies to that you may have experienced at home. A dog may be 'man's best friend', and considered another member of the family in the UK, but this is not always the case in the developing world. In many countries there is a much higher incident rate of animal neglect, and therefore a great need for volunteer help.

We have some fantastic and worthwhile projects available, including:
- Animal Sanctuary in Argentina
- Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation Centre in Boliva
- Panda Centre in China
- Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation Centre in Jamaica
- Animal Rescue Centre in Mexico
- Dog Rescue Centre in Romania
- Animal Rescue Centre in South Africa
- Seabird Centre in South Africa
