If you want to help animals have a better life, you can contribute to their welfare by helping homeless dogs and cats in the Dominican Republic.
You will work with a non-profit organisation whose goal is to control the over-population of dogs and cats by offering veterinary services such as castration, vaccinations, and deworming to homeless animals, or pets whose owners do not have the means or resources to do so.
You will support the local staff in “Sterilization Days”, where vaccinations are free and de-worming is offered at a low cost. With the support of veterinarians, volunteers, and professionals in Santo Domingo, Puerto Plata, Moca, Sosua, Rio San Juan, Bávaro, Punta Cana, and Bayaguana, you will help ensure these animals have a better life.
You will be taught basic knowledge of veterinary medicine, attend school one day per week, and assist in campaigns once or twice a month. Furthermore, you’ll have the opportunity to visit nearby towns and historic sites to get a complete picture of the Dominican Republic’s culture and lifestyle.
