Sobre el programa

Unfortunately, in Chile and much of Latin America, animal life is not half as valuable as in developed countries. Despite the constant improvement of the situation in recent years, there is a lack of professional implementation in dealing with the animals, the sterilization practices and the adecuate care of the animals. Throughout Chile there are big problems with dogs and cats living on the street.

Fortunately, there are some charity projects that take care of the animals. Founded in 2010, this NGO is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of stray cats in Santiago, giving cat lovers the opportunity to support the shelter with love and attention to pets in need. The shelter provides veterinarian care and a warm home to deported, neglected and abused cats. In addition, the project regularly organizes adoption events for the nearly 200 cats in the shelter.

Most cats that live in the cat house are rescued from the street, only a small number are brought in from households because of non-species-appropriate attitude. Some cats are pregnant and need a safe environment to give birth, care for, feed and educate their offspring. Others are very sick, malnourished or seriously injured by abuse or by years of stray on the street. Once sheltered, the cats receive food, water, vaccine, socialization program (with other cats and humans), and, of course, treatment for their illnesses and injuries. In addition, veterinary treatment including sterilization, medical therapies, etc. is provided as needed. The organization lives from donations and is happy about every committed animal lover.

The cat house would not exist without the help of volunteers. They are very important to keeping the project alive and to protect the current numbers cats, prepare adoptions, and rescue cats from the streets. Unfortunately, there are only a few initiatives in Santiago that deal with street cats. If you love cats and want to protect them, then this is your chance!

Your help is needed in various areas, such as:

• Feeding the cats
• Cleaning blankets and cat beds
• Cleaning and maintenance of cages and premises
• Cleaning and refill feeding bowls
• Cleaning litter boxes
• Administrative tasks
• Accompanying veterinary treatments (not possible for all volunteers)
• Helping with Adoption Processing (not always possible)

In this volunteer project, you have the opportunity to work with a variety of cats and to improve their living conditions. Your support makes all the difference and helps to rehabilitate the street cats in Santiago de Chile, give them a new home and make life outside the street possible. Your activities will change the behavior, the health and the life situation of the cats sustainably and at best enable them to live in a family.

You do not have to be a cat expert to participate in this project in Chile. A serious love of cats and your motivation to help them are enough to change the lives of cats in Chile. These stray animals depend on the support of all of us.


Note: The tasks may vary. They depend on factors such as number of volunteers, weather, season, current needs of the project, as well as self-motivation. Not every volunteer may be fully involved in all these tasks.

                          Since 2007, to enrich the experience of our global-minded clients and to provide them with even more possibilities, South America Inside has been expanding their program offerings throughout South and Central America.

                          Working together with some of the best language schools in Latin America, South America Inside provides high quality language courses in almost every Latin American country.

                          Thanks to a professional team of motivated and friendly staff, South America Inside has been very successful over the past several years and have been able to establish an outstanding network of what we call "Insider Contacts." To enrich the experience of their clients and to provide them with more possibilities, South America Inside has been expanding our program offerings throughout Central and South America, in addition to our well-established Chilean programs.

                          With South America Inside you can combine an adventure abroad with social commitment, and create lasting memories in Latin America. Support the protection of endangered species; help a local community construct new homes; give new hope to impoverished children.

                          The possibilities to lend a hand are diverse, as there are the many places where help is needed. We have classified our volunteer projects in different areas so you can easily find the one (or more!) projects that best match your needs and interests.

                          Why with us

                          There are many persuasive reasons that speak in favor of South America Inside when it comes to selecting your perfect provider of language, study and volunteer travel abroad. Following, we have prepared a short summary so that you can get us to know a little better.

                          Our Insider benefits at a glance:

                            Regional Experience
                          Over one decade (established in 2003) of dedication to language, work and study travel programs in Latin America. Thanks to our long standing work and life experience in the South American continent, we know this region really well. Therefore, we can help and inform you in a professional and competent way.

                            Multifaceted Offers
                          Over time we have developed new programs to offer a wide array of work abroad opportunities to our clients. We have been pioneers in launching new exchange programs, as we have been the first in offering Work & Travel/Working Holiday and Farm Stays in Chile and successfully introduced these programs into the market back in 2005. Since 2012, we are the only agency to offer this type of program in Costa Rica.

                            Insider Advice
                          Despite living in the modern era of the internet, we know that reliable and competent advice is still an important criterion for most of us. At South America Inside, you will find the benefits of an internet provider and an independent travel agency. We will be glad to pass on our extensive knowledge and regional experience.!

                            Location
                          It is difficult to run programs when there is nobody “on the ground” to evaluate existing options and search for new opportunities. So, we are located in Chile, on location, and we know everything that is going on first hand. We know what it is like to live as a foreigner in South America and will be happy to assist you in making your stay unforgettable!

                            Independence
                          South America Inside is an independent provider of language courses, internships, volunteer work, Farm Stays and Work & Travel programs in Latin America. We neither depend financially nor structurally on any other company, language school, association or organization. Therefore, we are able to give personalized information in accordance to your needs and availability.

                          •  Multilingual Team

                          Our team is multilingual and international! We speak fluent English, Spanish and German, as well as some French and Portuguese. With our customers, we can communicate in their native language and we avoid misunderstandings with local partners by communicating in Spanish with them. You can be sure that there will be an English-speaking contact person for you before, during, and after your stay.

                            Customer Service
                          Excellent customer service is one of the most important goals for South America Inside, and this is evident with the positive feedback we regularly receive from our many happy clients. Emails are answered within 48 business hours and every client is treated with the same friendliness and expertise.

                            Gapless and Accurate Information flow
                          With South America Inside you will have one and the same contact person before, during and after your trip. With that said, we guarantee a gapless and accurate information flow and you will always be very well informed.

                            Approved Program Places
                          Many of our program places, especially in the area of internships and volunteer work, are designed in the way that they will be recognized by most universities, colleges or academies.
