Go PAWesome sets a standard program fee for a 10 day trip at no more then $1,000AUD. This fee is calculated by the total expected budget for the individual project, the number of volunteer spaces available and the length of the project. It directly covers the costs associated with overseeing the veterinary side and ensuring all of the animals get the proper veterinary care and medicines they require. It covers the costs of feeding, transporting and housing all volunteers, the pre-departure and ongoing support of Go PAWesome staff and costs associated with hiring local staff/support during the project. Go PAWesome also likes to reward those amazing local staff (not employed by Go PAWesome) who work full time caring for the animals – before we arrive and long after we leave, with small tokens of appreciation. Their average monthly salary can be as little as meager $150AUD per month.
