Veterinary and animal care
We are a non-governmental organization dedicated to helping improve the health and welfare of animals in Nepal. There is never a shortage of opportunities when it comes to your veterinary skills. While also traveling some where you’ve always wanted to see. If you’re interested in veterinary medicine or just have a passion for animals, there is a placement for you. If your passion is working with animals, then consider participating in one of veterinary program. Assist experienced veterinarians with medical and surgical need at shelter or a clinic. This is your chance to improve your skills with animals that need your care.
We provides skilled teams of veterinarians that execute community wide spay neuter campaigns as well as health consolations for dog and other animals. Our goal is to control the local animal population as well as treat and prevent zoonotic diseases. Our team also perform other surgeries or treat injuries on a case by case basis. Al surgeries are performed on community animals that require sterilization. Members of the local community own most of the surgical patients, but homeless cats and dogs are also considered for sterilization.
