Get ready for hard but rewarding work!

The first thing that you will notice about this program is the dogs. This was my first time to a developing country, so I had no idea how many there were in need of help, love and care. As a volunteer, you actually get to develop relationships with lots of these dogs and help lots of them heal and get healthy! They all have names and their personalities – the staff and volunteers really treat them with respect and dignity.

Because it’s a small and growing project, you’re really thrown right into the work. You see something that needs doing and do it. There is no time to wait around – you just need to take initiative! These past 5 weeks have certainly been hard work, and more rewarding than I can say. The staff is INCREDIBLE. Every single one of them works with such patience and determination, it been amazing to watch. The work being done here is truly inspirational! I am so grateful for the time and experience with the whole staff and all the other volunteers who were there with me. I have learned a lot about myself and how far I can push myself. If you are ready to get down and dirty in hard but satisfying work, then I cannot recommended this program enough.
