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, and this is where you come in. Join us to give something back to the world, use your passion to help animals, and discover beautiful new countries and cultures whilst you do it.

 

You can get hands-on as part of your career break, studies or gap year. A number of projects accept anyone regardless of their past experience, others are reserved for veterinary and nursing students and graduates. We ask you to cover the fee for accommodation, food and transfers, but not for your training. As a result, our projects can be counted towards your EMS or C-EMS allowance. 

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

With 13 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!
