I've now completed my second trip with VIDA Volunteer and both trips were absolutely amazing! I gained so much experience in the veterinary field while helping to provide care for animals from families who cannot afford or do not have access to proper veterinary services. Our spay and neuter clinics also helped to control the rural dog and cat populations in an effort to keep them off the streets. I would definitely recommend volunteering with this organization!

This is an absolutely great experience! Volunteers get hands on experience in medicine while experiencing the less seen side of a beautiful culture. As long and the volunteer keeps an open mind while on this trip they could gain anything from learning new medical knowledge, developing a new motivational standpoint, or finding a new meaning in live... all of which are possible when volunteering with VIDA.

Fantastic experience! Wonderful staff, volunteers, and experience. We went around to various towns to set up free medical and vet clinics for those in need. I got a lot of hands-on experience as a medical student, and made some valuable relationships around the world.
