Über das Programm

Takes this chance to take care of abused and abandoned pets at a center located in the Greater Vancouver area of Canada, world’s number one best livable city surrounded by mountains and ocean.

This project is for those who just love dogs, cats and other animals, and who would love to get in to the care and rescue of abandoned and abused pets. Every year this volunteer project treats many animals from throughout the Greater Vancouver area. Your mission is to provide humane care to injured, unwanted and abused pets. Working with the animals at the centre is rewarding but physically demanding, and it is by no means an ’easy holiday option’! Volunteers will be expected to be involved in all aspects of the centre. Animal care volunteers are needed all year round. The minimum stay for this project is 4 weeks duration.

You will volunteer along side international volunteers and local volunteers as well as local staff who will guide and train you during your stay.

The volunteer project is located in one of the suburbs of the greater Vancouver Area where there is something to do for everyone.  Whether it is enjoying the nature, ski or snowboard, mountain bike, hike, going to the nearby coast and enjoying the sea or visiting Vancouver Downtown there is plenty to do near the volunteer station on your days

As a volunteer you will help the staff clean, do vaccines, health checks and keep the shelter going. We have about 50 volunteers, who all work in different fields (cats, dogs, floater). We would try to have you work in all these fields so you would get the most out of this. If there is one area that you prefer, we would definitely try to have you stay there (depending on schedules and staffing).
Most works is directly involving the cats and dogs of the center.

Requirements:
  • Required to commit to a minimum of 4 weeks
  • Must complete 2-4 days of training and shadow a senior volunteer before starting independent shifts
  • NO SMOKING is allowed on the property.
  • Strong work ethics are required: reliable, responsible, honest, good sense of humour, dependable, physically and mentally fit.
  • Age: 18-30
  • No animal allergies
  • Tetanus Vaccination required
  • Jeans and Toe Covered shoes is a must!

Über die Organisation

Fronteering arranges volunteering programs related to wildlife and indigenous people in less visited places of this world as well as more unique destinations.

Lerne deine Organisation kennen

Fronteering arranges volunteering programs in some of the last frontiers of this world as well as more unique locations that other organizations ignore. From Field research programs in the Far north of Canada and Husky ranches in the Canadian Arctic to Amerindian community programs and wildlife conservation in the Amazon Rainforest and everything in between.

Most of our programs Focus on either wildlife rehabilitation and release, wildlife conservation & research or involve local indigenous communities.

Fronteering currently offers programs in Canada, Guyana, USA, Australia, Brazil, Borneo, South Africa, Madagascar and Panama.

True good causes: FRONTEERINGS volunteer abroad projects are either existing local projects or projects that are build from the group up by FRONTEERING. What these projects have in common is that you will be supporting a true good cause! You will have the opportunity to help where the need is the greatest. Our projects focus on helping the local communities, wildlife, indigenous people and the environment in cooperation with the local/indigenous communities. We focus on true volunteer projects where your effort really makes a difference. That’s why through Fronteering you will rehabilitate injured & orphaned wildlife with the goal to release the animal. That is the reason why will not send you to some far southern country to cuddle with tame lions & tigers with any real purpose. If you want to volunteer abroad with a real purpose, contact us!

Safety: At FRONTEERING we do our outmost best to provide the safety measures needed for our Volunteer Abroad projects and Adventure Travel Trips. However due to the fact that many of our projects and trips involve wild animals and/or are in remote locations there is a small element of risk involved. Not all of our projects and trips are for the faint at heart however we do cater to those of all walks of life. If you are not too sure about the suitability of a Volunteer Abroad project or an Adventure Travel trip then feel free to ask as we are always ready to answer any questions or discuss any doubts that come to mind. For more information please check our Safety & In-country Support section before you volunteer abroad.

A real adventure: We do not want our volunteers to end up trying to safe or clean up some small patch of rainforest which in some places they might call a wilderness. Instead you will volunteer in the immense jungle of the Amazon rainforest or venture in to the vast Canadian wilderness! Our volunteer abroad projects are situated in the remote areas of the world and we focus on countries and regions with the lowest population densities. We at FRONTEERING focus on what works; from sleeping in the jungle underneath the stars with nothing more than your own private hammock to back-to-basic cabins in the northern tundra with a cozy smothering fireplace and no electricity! When you volunteer abroad with FRONTEERING you can be sure it will be adventure.

Off the beaten path: With FRONTEERING volunteer abroad projects you will venture to places less visited. We focus on places that are fairly undiscovered where the nature, wildlife and indigenous cultures are still common. You will have the great opportunity to see these amazing places while they are still unspoiled and pure. It is these places where there is the most to lose but even more to gain through successful conservation work and sustainable tourism. 

Community involvement: Foremost when volunteering abroad the well being of the community should come first. For all of our trips we use local guides, local transportation and local communities so that through sustainable tourism we can help to protect the environment, wildlife and sustain the way of life of indigenous cultures & communities. More and more and governments choose the long term benefit of sustainable tourism over the short term gain of mining and logging. A good example is Gabon which in 2002 after recommendations from environmental researchers set up 13 new national parks. The government of Guyana is currently considering protecting its entire rainforest region which still covers 80% of the country. Hopefully through our combined effort this dream will one day become true.

Mission
FRONTEERING specializes in organizing volunteer abroad projects to preserve the environment, wildlife and indigenous people throughout the world while giving the volunteers a real and raw experience in some of the most beautiful and often remote places in the world to make a true difference.

Vision
FRONTEERING strives to provide real off the beaten path volunteer abroad experiences worldwide that satisfy the need for volunteer projects that truly makes a difference for the environment, wildlife and indigenous people.

Going abroad and in particular volunteering was something I always regretted not doing when I was younger. When a opportunity did come up to take extended leave from work It took me a while to gather the courage to now fulfill my younger self's wish. Was I too old? Would I still fit in at this age? ...

I really had an amazing time staying in Canada. The communication with Fronteering Travel was good, and at no point I felt like I was getting no support. In the shelter itself I felt very welcome. Volunteering there, you have to be aware that it is not all about cuddeling with the pets, though there ...
