Each year World Vets sends out countless veterinary teams throughout the world to provide free veterinary care for animals in need. These endeavors are made possible through a shared dedication to improve the lives of animals, and in turn the partnerships that are created to realize this common goal.
We are looking to expand our reach and send teams to regions of the world where we’re currently not working. In particular, we are interested in receiving requests for assistance from countries located in South East Asia and the Asia – Pacific area, though we welcome requests, and opportunities, to provide assistance worldwide.
At this time we will not be considering requests for assistance from the following:
- Countries where we already have an established program, project and/or presence. For instance, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Peru, Honduras, Paraguay, the Dominican Republic etc.
- Countries where it is illegal, or would not be welcomed, for foreign veterinarians to provide their services as a volunteer.
- Countries that have major safety concerns and/or travel advisories, especially per the U.S State Department. For instance, specific regions of the world we are unable to consider at this time include the Middle East, Central Asia and various parts of Africa.
- Requests that solicit assistance in the form of one individual/volunteer (as we do not recruit individual volunteers for placements with other organizations)
We strive to work in partnership with foreign animal welfare groups, veterinary professionals, other nongovernmental organizations (NGO`s), as well as local and national governments and their respective agencies responsible for animal welfare, agriculture and public health. If you represent one (or more) of these categories, and would like to work with World Vets, see here for more information about requesting assistance.
We are accepting new project requests, to be considered for a visit in 2016, until August 3rd, 2015. All requests received following this date will be considered for 2017.
