Taking part in the Canine Therapy project in Bolivia or Argentina will provide volunteers with a valuable and unique experience.


These fantastic placements offer volunteers the opportunity to work with specially trained dogs providing specialised therapy sessions for children and young adults with disabilities.

Volunteers in Argentina will work at the Jingles Foundation, a 'zoo therapy centre' for children and young adults with various disabilities, such as autism and Down's syndrome. A trained dog can benefit patients by helping them to focus on movement, spatial orientation, posture and muscle control.

Volunteers in Bolivia will work at a dog training centre in Cochabamba. The placement involves a combination of outreach work, where visits to care and community centres are conducted, and work at the centre itself, looking after the dogs and assisting with training.

Projects Abroad Canine Therapy in Bolivia or Argentina Reviews

Amazing experience

I went to help animals in Argentina and I had an amazing time. I learned a lot about the country and the culture. We had a great group of volunteers and I had such an amazing time. To volunteer was a wonderful experience which I really recommend to everyone. It gives a different view of the own life and how beautiful it is to help! Projects Abroad is the best organisation and I would book again with them. Everything was well organised. I'm really thinking about going to do another volunteer project soon.
