Volunteers are an essential part of VAWO & therefore we need the right people joining us. We need volunteers to help with the day-to-day running of the two shelters based in Hoi An, central Vietnam. We ask for a month minimum stay from all volunteers.
Your work will involve cleaning which can get a little messy with all the animals we have. Cleaning up poo will be a part of your role, and as it is hot here, you will get a little sweaty. However, there will always be time for kitten cuddling and dog petting! You will need to be flexible as we may need your help with other things such as gardening. You may possess other skills that can be very helpful for us.
If you have any of the following desirable skills please let us know: photography, video editing, website design, fundraising, marketing/advertising, admin, handyman skills, dog grooming, behavior training (positive reward training only!). You will be working with cats, dogs, ducks, and chickens, so you must be happy to work with all the animals we have here. Some experience working with animals is required.
The volunteering fee is $250 per person (5 million Dong). For those using AC, there is an extra fee of $50 to pay for the utilities. Accommodation is provided if there is space available. If accommodation is not available, there are many affordable options nearby, which we can advise you on.
