World Vets has a new partnership that will provide an exciting opportunity for veterinarians to volunteer in northern Thailand. The volunteer opportunity is located at an elephant sanctuary (about an hour north of Chiang Mai) that is home to ~ 40 elephants, ~80 water buffalo and 400+ dogs. The sanctuary is located along a river in a beautiful and picturesque valley where rescued elephants spend their days freely roaming. The 400+ dogs living at the sanctuary are mostly rescues from the 2011 Thailand flood, which World Vets assisted and provided disaster response.
This volunteer opportunity is for small animal veterinarians who can commit at least 1 month (up to 3 months if possible) to volunteering. Opportunities are available starting in January 2016 and will be available throughout the year with flexible start dates. Up to 2 veterinarians can be accepted during any time slot.
