Volunteers on the Animal Care project will be working in a shelter for abandoned dogs in Jamaica. Your role will be focused on providing human company, medical treatment, and playtime to support the health and wellbeing of the dogs housed at the shelter.

On this project, you will be assisting with bathing and brushing the dogs, providing basic obedience training, cleaning cages, helping during feeding time, maintaining the shelter grounds, sharing love and affection, and walking and playing with the animals. You will be volunteering alongside local staff who will provide you with guidance and assistance in carrying out these tasks within the shelter. When available, there is scope to help with the rescue missions which involve taking abandoned dogs back to the shelter and coordinating the adoption process. The dogs are often adopted by families from overseas and occasionally by members of the local community.

The Animal Care project is best suited to volunteers who love dogs, are passionate about supporting animal rights and don’t mind getting their hands dirty.
