Get involved with animal rescue in Cambodia as a wildlife volunteer, where you can care for abandoned dogs and cats in its vibrating capital Phnom Penh. Together with the local team of an animal welfare organization, you can help bringing the pets to a shelter. At the shelter, the dogs and cats are being fed, washed and treated medically, if necessary. After a while, the pets are being prepared for adoption.
Since the developing country still faces problems as poor education and poverty, locals are often unable to care properly for their animals. So, as a volunteer, you can care for these poor abandoned cats and dogs of the community!
Poor nutrition for these animals often causes diseases, and sometimes people are selling the animals to the cruel and barbaric meat trade. Therefore, your help as a animal conservation volunteer is crucial for the survival of these pets.
We see that some owners do not care much about their own pets and sometimes they leave them outside from home without any food or care. Some dogs and cats get sick without any medicine that can get more serious without treatment and they end up dyeing.
We often need help from veterinarians to treat, neuter and operate street animals, but also to mentor our Cambodian veterinary trainees.
Note: it would be good if volunteers get vaccinated because normally volunteers need to stay with the dogs and cats that get sick.
While the Volunteers work together with the local staffs and other foreigners, they will sometimes even meet Buddhist Monks and local people in the community.
