Anyone can volunteer!

Worldwide Vets works around the globe, to help animals in need. Every year we strive to reach more and more animals that desperately require support in association with local communities and charities. This is where you come in.

Some of our projects accept volunteers to join our cause, giving you a chance to get hands on and make a real impact as part of your career, break, studies or gap year. This is your opportunity to really give something back to the world and use your passion and skills to do something amazing. Projects either have a ‘veterinary’ or ‘conservation’ focus and you don’t need any past experience to attend.  

Our vet projects range from domestic vet clinics, servicing poverty-stricken communities in Africa and India, to wildlife vet teams at the front line of conservation. In the developing world you will gaining a lot of clinical experience and help diagnose, treat and prevent  a range of injuries and diseases that may be quite different to those you see at home.

Our conservation projects are based at wildlife rescue centres, research facilities or conservation entities, and deal with rehabilitating and protecting endangered animals like turtles, cheetahs, elephants, lions, rhinos, monkeys, dolphins and other marine mammals.

With 10 years’ experience running volunteer projects, we know what it takes to give you a life changing experience, with a fun team, in beautiful locations and with all the safety nets, insurance and cover you need when traveling abroad.
