Veterinary Projects

Worldwide Vets has been founded, managed and run by veterinarians since 2010. We pride ourselves on offering the best projects around. Projects where you as a volunteer can make a real difference and gain a huge amount of experience, whilst helping animals in need.

Anyone can join us as a veterinary volunteer, and the stay of each person is tailored to their prior experience. We have many people join us during their gap years to get a feel for the profession or to increase their number of hours of work experience when applying for university. Vet students from all corners of the word join us to gain experience in a low stress, encouraging and friendly environment, and both new graduate and experienced vets alike come to improve their skills, or to give back to a country less fortunate than the one they normally operate in.

Our clinics are all based in relatively rural locations, and vary in the equipment available for utilisation, but have one thing in common. A committed team of vets and para-professionals giving it their all to help every animal brought to them. Sometimes we deal with power cuts, no running water, boiling hot days on spay campaigns or cold nights waiting patiently to dart and translocate wildlife. If you have a sense of adventure and are looking for your next “adventure with purpose”, then look no further.
