This program aims to rescue injured and mistreated stray dogs for rehabilitation and safe housing in pet shelters so they can be put up for adoption. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Singles
Couples
Families
Groups
50+

If you’ve ever travelled through Asia, you’re sure to have seen many stray dogs wandering in the streets scavenging, snoozing dangerously close to fast moving cars and all the hustle and bustle.   In most cases these dogs do not have a proper home and as a result are not well looked after or fed regularly. 

On this program, you’ll work within local animal shelters alongside caring animal lovers with the aim of rehabilitating stray dogs so that in time they may be ready for adoption by a loving family.

The project also operates and collaborates for the Animal Birth Control Program to educate pet owners on the importance of having dogs spayed and neutered to prevent overpopulation of stray dogs in the area.

You’ll assist daily exercise for the dogs, cleaning, socializing, and giving them lots of love and affection! 

Typical day

You will work at the animal shelter from 9:00 to midday and then again in the afternoon from 14:00 to 16:00. Your daily tasks will include,

–        Walking, feeding, cleaning the dogs and their cages

–        Socializing with the dogs to help them adapt to people so they are more adoption ready

–          Animal outreach assistance.   Assistance in Locating and capturing stray dogs in the community

–        Education Outreach such as dropping brochures or conducting local talks about animal welfare and the importance of spaying & neutering pets.
