About The Program:
Ten days volunteering in beautiful, tropical southern Thailand with its famous islands as your landscape. Our aim during this project is to assist a local animal welfare clinic and their Thai veterinary team with ongoing spay and neuter efforts to ensure humane population control of the dogs and cats living in the surrounding area. All veterinary treatments are carried out by Thai veterinary staff and assisted by Pawesome volunteers.
Who’s it for?
Veterinary Nurses or students.
Whether you are still studying or have several years of experience this program will provide you with a unique insight into what it’s like to work outside of Australia (and other western countries) where clinic luxuries are often sparse. Are you up for the challenge?
