Vet Animal Care Projects

Volunteer abroad program in Uganda provides a unique opportunity for volunteers to work with farm animals like Cows, Dogs, Cats, Goats, Pigs, Rabbits, Poultry in Uganda. This is a chance to learn about animals; and veterinary medicine in general and specifically about animal care in Uganda.

This placement is open to anyone interested in working with farm and domestic animals, practicing and aspiring animal scientists, animal science and veterinary college students, etc.

Duties: Volunteers with animals in Uganda assist the resident veterinary surgeon in their many duties including handling animals and animal feeds, diagnosis and treatment of tropical animal diseases, filling and keeping animal records and handling medicines.  No prior experience is required. International volunteers should bring gloves, work boots and lab coats.

Because there is so much to do, work is available for skilled and unskilled volunteers and is a great fit for students, professionals and families.

Farm volunteer work will be available Monday – Fridays from as early as 8:00 am to approximately 4:30.pm. If you would like a shorter day we can organize this. We want you to be totally immersed in the Ugandan culture so on weekends our organization offers day excursions and cultural immersion experiences.
