WHAT WILL I BE DOING?
You will work closely with a local animal welfare charity and will be substantially involved in the day to day running of a large urban animal welfare centre. You may cover activities ranging from cleaning animal cages, caring for stray and abandoned cats and dogs, helping to re-home pets or educating local communities about the importance of animal welfare. Your level of involvement will of course depend on your skills, practical work experience and academic qualifications.
You will be encouraged to bring your own initiative and enthusiasm to the project , whilst also constantly learning from professionals working alongside you. Those with Veterinary experience may be able to involve themselves in minor procedures, whilst those with less experience will be able to take part in the general care of animals and maintenance of the shelter. You will have the choice of either concentrating on a particular aspect of the animal welfare centre you are interested in or work across many different elements. Wherever your goals lie, whether purely in a career in veterinary sciences or just as a personal interest to protect vulnerable animals, this project has something for you. As well as all this, you will discover more about this exotic destination and its people through your work and involvement in the project.
