We rely on volunteers to run the veterinary clinic. Applications from qualified veterinary surgeons and nurses are welcome. The clinic runs throughout the year so there are always opportunities for vets. Fresh graduates with no experience will be required to pay 100 Euros to work with us, irrespective of the duration of your stay. They will be allowed to handle operations only if our vets feel you are ready for it.
Special arrangements have been made to support veterinary volunteers who work for us – you may get sponsorship from the organization which sends you to us or you can take advantage of our subsidized accommodation – we offer free rooms to anyone staying at least a month.
We don’t provide any financial return of any kind for the voluntary service, except as mentioned above, though we do serve lunch and break time tea during the working days. We can help the volunteers to find rooms at reasonable rate. We can also arrange home stay with a family for a cost of Rs. 600 per day which would include the cost of accommodation, breakfast and dinner. Cost of laundry not included. You will have a separate room in the house.
We will provide basic medical assistance free of cost and in case of sickness of more serious nature, we provide full assistance in terms of service to get the right treatment.
You can refer to our online calendar to see when the openings are for volunteer vets and nurses in the upcoming future.
