Combine your passion for animals and desire to give back to society by improving the unfortunate situation of abandoned street animals in Costa Rica.

During this volunteer program, you can help look for a new safe and beautiful home for stray dogs and cats.

  • Feed and walk the animals!
  • Care for street dogs and cats!
  • Help with rescue operations where animals are brought in from the street!
  • Witness cats and dogs find their forever home!

The program is managed by a local NGO in Costa Rica that aims to improve the situation of the animals living on the streets. Due to the amount of work that it takes to keep the program running, the help provided by volunteers is always greatly appreciated. Many families in Costa Rica do not have the knoleage of Animal Welfare especially in feeding. Thats why it is so important to educare families who would like to get an animal as a family member. Animals are only mediated when the family have the correct surrounding for the cat or the dog.

The project is located on the beautiful pazific coast of Costa Rica.

Your tasks as a volunteer may include: Caring for street dogs and cats (combing, taking dogs for walks), cleaning cages, administering drugs, supporting sterilization procedures, assisting in rescue operations, distributing food for animals on the street, public relations and educational work, maintaining websites, helping to raise funds, etc.
