Volunteer Veterinary Medicine & Animal Care Placements


If you have a passion for working with animals then we might have just what you are looking for. Projects Abroad offers animal care and veterinary medicine placements throughout the developing world.

Our veterinary medicine placements are ideal for those considering a career as a vet and looking to gain work experience. Alternatively, if you simply love animals but are looking for a more general role, we have several animal care projects to suit you too. Whichever project you chose, you are sure to improve your skills and enhance your knowledge.

In the developing world animals are often used in place of expensive farming machinery that would be more commonly seen in the West. This means there is a higher dependency on livestock, making it important that they remain fit and healthy. There are also much higher rates of neglect in these countries. Many families simply cannot afford to feed animals in addition to themselves and this is why your help is needed.

Programmes we offer:

- Combined Veterinary Medicine and Animal Care (various destinations)

- Animal Care (various destinations)

- Veterinary Medicine (various destinations)

- Canine Therapy in Argentina or Bolivia

- Equine Therapy in Argentina, Bolivia or South Africa

We also accept qualified vets and veterinary nurses on professional placements where you can put your skills and expertise to good use.
