Volunteer work as veterinarian


Work

There are various activities possible in the center. The veterinarian will mainly deal with the sterilization of dogs and cats and performing (small) operations. Further you will occasionally drive around the island to look for stray dogs that need to be sterilized.

Experience

For participation in this project you will need to have completed a relevant education. You need to be a qualified veterinarian! Are you a veterinary assistant? Ask us about the possibilities. Experience (especially with sterilizations) is preferred.

To volunteer in the center without required experience or education view the animal and nature project.

The official language is English, so you must have a reasonable level of English.

The minimum age for participation in this project is 20 years.

What is expected from you?

Voluntary does not mean optional. When you have registered and are placed in a project we expect your cooperation and 100% commitment. You need to be flexible. The circumstances are different than in your country, you must therefore be able to adapt easily to the local situation and culture.

The minimum period of participation in this project is 2 weeks. However, we recommend a minimum stay of 4 weeks. With a minimum stay of 4 weeks you will contribute more to the project, plus it provides you some benefits.

 Location and free time

The dogs and cats shelter is located on an island in the south of Thailand.

You will work 6 days per week. On Sundays, you’re free and you have time to explore the area. You can spend time with other volunteers (if applicable).

Accommodation and meals

If you volunteer for at least 4 weeks, accommodation will be arranged. Often a room is shared with another volunteer, sometimes you have your own room. Rooms are pretty basic. If you volunteer shorter than 4 weeks you will need to arrange and pay your own accommodation.

Meals are not included, though you get a discount at a restaurant. In the center is a kitchen where you can cook yourself if desired.
