Mission Statement: To positively impact the life for animals in underserved communities while offering volunteers a unique life experience.
Go Pawesome was founded in 2015 by Australian veterinary nurse Sarah Wexler. She was inspired by the warm and unconditional love the often sick (and always homeless) dogs and cats of Asia gave, and the lack of veterinary care they received. Sarah’s goal is to provide these loving animals with a higher quality of life through Pawesome’s volunteer programs.
Our programs are designed to partner with local shelters and their vets, the authorities, and the broader community to provide veterinary provisions in the form of; financial support, medical supplies and skilled volunteers. The projects we coordinate provide funding efforts for things such as spay and neuter, rabies vaccinations, mange treatment, parasite control, wound care, and sexually transmitted disease care.
Each of our programs offer volunteers a unique chance to experience the joy of providing care to animals in need, the challenge of spending time in a foreign country and the opportunity to gain valuable life skills.
We visit and screens all shelters before implementing a volunteer program. This allows for a healthier understanding of the needs of the individual shelter and of the logistics involved with bringing international volunteers to the location.
If you know of a rescue/shelter or town/community in need of veterinary assistance please contact us.
