Project Details

Our goal is to improve animal welfare worldwide by providing volunteers to help vets and vet nurses working with wildlife and domestic animals.

As an organisation, our goal is simple. Improve animal welfare around the world. Anyone can volunteer with us, you do not need to be a vet or vet student, although many of our courses are very popular with such applicants. 

We offer a multi-modal approach to assisting animals, including:

  • Running volunteer opportunities for you to help or study abroad.
  • Sponsoring vets to visit areas needing support.
  • Providing medications and surgical equipment
  • Training local vets and technicians.

By volunteering with us you will gain hands on experience with animals, learn new skills and give something back. For those considering a career in medicine or nursing, this is a great way to understand more about the career path and see if it is right for you. It provides industry relevant experience and is a wonderful addition to your CV, making you stand out when you apply to your chosen college or university. Those already studying animal and medical courses can gain credits and count their trip as work experience (including EMS or CEMS). Most importantly you can learn a huge range of new concepts and develop your skills and confidence in a friendly and encouraging environment.

Worldwide Vets is registered in the UK, with our administrative head office close to London, England. The real hub of our work is much further away, with vet clinics and conservation projects in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zanzibar, Ghana, Thailand, India, Cambodia, Peru, and Costa Rica, to name just a few. We welcome volunteers to join our mission and contribute to the role we play. Doing so is a great way to give something back to the world around you, saving innocent lives, alleviating poverty and playing your part in sustaining the natural and cultural planet we know today.

Social Impact

Our dedicated team of vets, nurses, technicians, and conservation support staff work every day of the year to ensure that any animal presented to us can receive the best possible care and treatment and this is where we need volunteers to help. The jobs are diverse and varied, on any given day, between the four continents where we work, our team are carrying out worthwhile missions like dog rescues, horse treatments, translocating rhino or removing snares from trapped wildlife. If you check the media, you will often see our team members making headlines for our rescue and conservation work! 

Community education and empowerment is an important part of our ethos, and we strongly believe that the local communities are the best people to care for local animals. It is through capacity building, education and school teaching sessions that we really make a sustainable difference in the countries where we operate. 


Volunteering with us is a chance to challenge yourself, learn new skills, make a difference, and see the world in a new light, being welcomed to each destination not as a tourist, but as a helper and member of our family. With the challenges facing us all in the 21st century, there has never been a more important time for volunteers to come together and take responsibility for the animals and world around us.
