Travel to Playa del Carmen, Mexico and take part in a veterinary assistance program that works with the local impoverished communities to educate about pet care and population control. You will have access to a host of duties including preparation for daily neutering and spaying, assisting in the recovery area by taking care of the animals, conducting animal welfare workshops in the community, assisting in fundraising activities and more.





Project Life

You will work on the project five days a week, spending the majority of this time fully immersed in project life. Tasks and activities on the project are wide-ranging and depend on the needs at any time and any specific skills you might be able to bring. You should always be prepared for a certain degree of change in the field such is the dynamic nature of our projects, but roles could include: assisting in the preparation for daily neutering and spaying surgeries (always lead by local vets), receiving and delivering dogs and cats; assisting in the clinic’s recovery area by taking care of the animals, cutting their nails, cleaning their ears and removing ticks; doing surveys or implementing animal welfare workshops in the community; supporting animal welfare awareness and humanitarian treatment in hotels and local communities; helping out in different fundraising activities; or, increasing awareness of cat and dog population control in different areas focusing on disadvantaged communities.You will be always welcome to play with the adoptable kittens, this is very important in their socializing process. Working with animals can be physically and emotionally demanding, however, it is a very rewarding role. The time schedule varies, but there is a good balance between work and downtime, with opportunities to study Spanish and enjoy the surrounding area.
