If you are looking for Voluntary work with Animals, please click on the regional links below for animal welfare and veterinary organisations around the world for some of the organisations that offer animal volunteering opportunities:

Why we suggest that having a relevant animal care or wildlife training is important for voluntary work with animals

volunteer-work-with-animalsTo be at least short-listed for a job in animal care, it is essential to present a CV that shows relevant experience (this can be gained through voluntary work with animals), and relevant training.

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 volunteer applicants.

So now, finding a volunteer job or work experience is becoming almost as difficult as finding a full time job in animal care.

If you are able to tell the organisation that you want to volunteer with, that you are studying a relevant subject or that you have had relevant training, you are far more likely to gain a voluntary placement with them.

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.
