Volunteering with us at the Kilimanjaro Animal C.R.E.W. gives you the opportunity to gain experience in handling and caring for different types of domestic animals (dogs, cats, farm animals). Rarely does a week or day go by without a new patient being brought to us. Our principle is never to refuse to take in an injured or orphaned animal!
At Makoa Farm and Kilimanjaro Animal CREW you will be dealing with injured, neglected, tortured or abandoned domestic animals. The animals receive comprehensive treatment and remain in the clinic until they are recovered and ready to leave.
Hospitalised animals should be kept busy through play and training as far as possible due to their condition to prevent psychological problems and misbehaviour.
However, volunteering does not only involve the daily care and occupation of animals, but also requires working on other projects, such as social media, bush school, forest kindergarten or training staff.
For veterinary students and those who have just completed their veterinary studies, there is the possibility to participate in castration camps to consolidate skills in everyday surgical routines. For detailed information please see and download the information manual here Tanzania spay and neuter camp for vet students.
100% of the donations made through volunteering are used for the projects of Kilimanjaro Animal C.R.E.W.
It is important to understand that the volunteer contribution does not serve to pay for your stay, but a donation to the non-profit organisation Kilimanjaro Animal CREW. The amount is used exclusively to fund treatment, surgery and care for the animals, as well as conservation, education and awareness projects for Tanzanian children, students and the general local population.
The volunteer donation to Kilimanjaro Animal C.R.E.W. is non-refundable.
Please contact us for availability: firstname.lastname@example.org
Previous knowledge in veterinary medicine or at least routine and sufficient experience in dealing with different (domestic) animals is required.
Please note to avoid misunderstanding: There are no rescued wild animals on site and the work does not involve handling wild animals!
