Thanks so much for your submission, here are 2 of our top projects that match your criteria:

Stray Dog Rehabilitation

Location: Peru


In this unique project in Cusco, Peru you’ll work as a dog shelter volunteer helping rehabilitate stray animals and integrate into caring homes. In this region, there are a large number of domestic animals abandoned by their owners due to various economic and social circumstances. The animals are not well cared for with major health issues. These shelters are inundated with animals and volunteers provide a vital service to the local centers.

Beach Cleanup & Nature Reserve

Help with beach clean-up efforts, education in the community, and maintaining trails at the local nature reserve. You will find all sorts of animals here from seabirds, white-tail deer, armadillos, howler monkeys, capuchin monkeys, as well as wild cats like ocelots and jaguarundis!
