This project collaborates with an animal welfare organization that acts as both a shelter and a hospital for abandoned and injured animals.
There are 15 to 20 staff members who work to make this shelter a safe haven for the animals, while also offering critical veterinary services to treat animals on-site and around the city. Their ultimate goals are to release wild animals back into their natural habitats and to find homes for as many ownerless animals as soon as possible.
After a 2-day orientation in Delhi, you will be taken to Jaipur to begin your project. There are about 50-60 animals at the center at any given time and, like many shelters, the staff is severely overburdened. For this reason, volunteers are needed to help this organization run effectively. As a volunteer, your tasks may include: dressing and/or cleaning animals’ wounds, feeding the animals assisting in routine hospital check-ups and cleaning animal cages and the project site.
