Animal care in Mexico is a growing local issue, with high rates of cats and dogs being abandoned on the streets, while wild animals are often put down when cities are unable to re-home them.
By volunteering with animals, you’ll provide valuable assistance to non-profit organisations that run shelters for these vulnerable animals, aiming to care for them and have them adopted back into families.
As an Animal Care volunteer, you’ll work alongside local staff and volunteers to play with, clean and feed cats and dogs, socializing them and helping to give them the best chance of finding a new home in the community.
Another vital part of animal rights volunteer work is public education around the issue of animal abandonment and helping to fundraise money for animal shelters. Volunteers can also assist with running clinics to spay/neuter neighborhood pets, helping to prevent unwanted litters that often end up being left on the street.
Basic Spanish language skills are helpful but not required, and volunteers need to have had an active tetanus vaccination.Apply now
