Welcome to the Animal Volunteer Work Resource

So you’re considering volunteering with animals? Congratulations! There are many wonderful volunteering opportunities throughout the world that will provide a very rewarding experience for both you and the animals that you connect with.

“Everyone can be great because anyone can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t even have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve… You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This resource was created in the hopes that people like you could more easily connect with the volunteer programs that best fit your needs.

You can use the navigation menu above to choose the location you wish to volunteer in, if you’re not sure yet, check out our general volunteer sites to get some ideas! There are both long-term and short-term volunteer opportunities available. As well as both free and paid programs.












*Note: I do not run any of the programs listed on this site. The volunteer opportunities listed are merely a collection of programs I have found through my own research and volunteering experiences.

    We are a group of volunteers (5 people at the moment) who are taking hug steps to improving animal welfare at a Safari Park in Thailand. We have done so much in the 3 months since we arrived – changed the diets of the leopards, tigers, binturong and monkeys and improved the enclosures of all the animals that we are responsible for.

    Ultimately we are trying to teach the Thai people what the basic needs of these animals are, and put a system in place to ensure that from now on all the animals are treated fairly and respected.

    We have a long way to go.

    If anyone is interested in volunteering then please see our website. Discount is available for long stays but please be aware that it is the money from volunteers that pays for us to improve the lives of the animals! (seeds, fruit, building materials etc).

    Thanks :)
