About this program

Journey to Nepal and take part in a successful spay, neuter and vaccination program.

Participants can make a difference through various duties and work with local communities to provide education about stray animals and rabies. You’ll assist in the care and rehabilitation of rescued dogs, and other animals. With thousands of dogs that live on the streets, neglect, starvation, disease, and injuries are common. This is your chance to make a difference. 

Choose from two locations in Nepal: Kathmandu or Bhaktapur. This is a great addition to your plans for a Mt. Everest trek!


Volunteers are involved in all aspects of the program. Exact volunteer duties will depend on your background, interests, and academic and clinical training. This will be discussed with you on arrival, and your schedule and duties will be customized to meet your skills and expectations. You do not need veterinary experience to volunteer. Volunteers help with feeding the dogs, cleaning, grooming, and bathing the dogs at the shelter, exercising and walking the dogs and assisting the team in other activities. Volunteers with veterinary training will have the opportunity to assist in the clinic, including helping with case management, diagnostics and surgeries as appropriate.

Volunteers have one day off per week. You can choose your day off between Sunday to Friday. Everyone works on Saturday, one of the busiest days.  Shifts are from  9:00 am – 6:00 pm, with a 2-hour break for lunch.
