If you are looking for Voluntary work with Animals click on the regional links below for animal welfare and veterinary organisations around the world for a few of the organisations that offer animal volunteering opportunities.
Why you should undertake a relevant animal care or wildlife course to Volunteer.
There are many people dissatisfied with their jobs and want to do something more rewarding and meaningful. They realise that to be at least short-listed for a job in animal care, they need to present a CV that shows relevant experience and some sort of qualification.
This means that most Animal Rescue centres, Zoos and Vets are finding that they are being approached almost on a daily basis with requests to volunteer and have long waiting list of applicants willing to volunteer.
So now, finding a volunteer job or work experience is becoming almost as difficult as finding a full time job in animal care.
However whatever your skills or amount of time you have available to offer, there are many animals who will benefit greatly from your offer of volunteering. Volunteering will also give you valuable work experience and will improve your chances of employment within the animal care sector. Working as a volunteer will enable you to gain valuable insight in the specific type of animal care that you aspire to work in.
Animal Jobs Direct aims to inspire and help those wanting to work with animals, to find a suitable and rewarding career in the animal care sector.
