How much does it cost?
You are expected to pay for your flight, lodging and food. We help you find a comfortable room for (€ 5-10) per night. We pick you up from the airport and offer you a short orientation.

What kind of support do you offer?
We provide you with a briefing before you start and a coordinator is always available to answer your questions. Although we are a small, busy team, we try our best to make you feel comfortable.

What to think about before applying
Helping animals in a country that needs volunteers such as yourself can be a very rewarding experience! Our staff are a motivated lot and the dogs and equines we treat are generally wonderful creatures.

At the same time, working here can be difficult. Kathmandu is highly polluted and suffers from a lack of water, electricity and fast internet connection. Animal suffering is abundant in Nepal; you may feel overburdened by the scale of the problems.

The facilities and care provided to the animals will not be up to Western standards. You might become attached to the animals which are returned to the street after recovery. The staff will lack skills (some are illiterate) and at times there will be communication problems.
