JOIN US AND HELP ANIMALS IN NEED

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, giving you a chance to get hands on and make a real impact as part of your career break, studies or gap year. Some of our projects accept anyone regardless of their past training or experience. Some are reserved for veterinary and nursing students and graduates. This is your opportunity to give something back to the world and use your passion and skills to do something amazing whilst discovering a beautiful new country.

Projects range from domestic vet clinics serving poverty-stricken communities in Africa, Asia and the Americas, to wildlife vet teams at the front line of conservation. In the developing world you will gain a lot of clinical experience and help diagnose, treat and prevent a range of injuries and diseases that you may not see at home.

With 11 years’ experience running volunteer projects, we know what it takes to give you a life changing experience with a fun and encouraging team, in beautiful locations and with all the safety nets, insurance and cover you need when traveling abroad.

So weather you dig dogs, or love lions, welcome to our team!
