Help dog rescue shelters save abandoned animals and rehabilitate them. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 16+
Singoli
Coppie
Famiglie
Gruppi
50+

Culturally speaking in Latin America, dogs and cats are not looked upon as integral members of the family the way they are in many other countries. This often leads to neglect and abandonment. The projects we work with promote the value of preservation, of both species diversity and their natural habitats. The projects also protect the animals and provide medical treatment, shelter, rehabilitation, and training. 

Depending on the project, volunteers may be asked to:

  • Bathe and/or groom the animals
  • Provide basic obedience training
  • Clean cages, feed animals, maintain the project area
  • Help during feeding time
  • Play with and walk the animals
  • Support the treatment of injured or sick animals
  • Observe surgeries and assist in pre-operative and post-operative care
  • Assist with small construction projects
  • Photography and fundraising
  • Educational programs in local schools including conservation work
  • Join spay/neuter programs and/or rabies vaccination clinics

At animal care projects, work may be physically demanding at times. Please note that due to availability and seasonal needs at our projects, we cannot guarantee any particular type of facility. Rest assured, there is a big need for volunteer assistance at these projects and your presence is valued.

Typical day

Working hours vary according to the needs of the project, but volunteers can expect to work 3-4 hours per day, Monday to Friday, in the morning or in the afternoon.

Free-time activities

There is plenty to see and do around La Antigua including cultural events, tours and treks, and exploring the various markets. Our local staff also posts a monthly events calendar to let you know of the activities going on around MaximoJust outside of La Antigua, there is even more to explore including nearby coffee farms, volcanoes, and both Mayan and colonial ruins. Further outside the area, participants can visit beautiful Lake Atitlán, Semuc Champey, and the famous Tikal archaeological site. Our staff are experts on Guatemala and can answer any questions clients have. Tours and trips can also easily be booked through our on-site travel partner.

Details on arrival

Every Monday, all year round. The animal project is located just outside of La Antigua. Volunteers can expect to spend 20-30 minutes traveling each way by bus. Volunteers travel to and from the project by either walking or using local buses, taxis or a “tuk-tuk” (3-wheeled motorcycle taxi). For the first visit to the project, participants are taken by a Maximo Nivel representative using the local transport and given additional information about what transport to take. Local bus rides are very affordable and a one way trip will rarely cost more than Q8 (about $1). Taxis & tuk-tuks cost approximately Q10 to Q30 (about US$1.20 to US$3.50) one way within Antigua.
