new hope for animals



New Hope For Animals is a new rescue organisation in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand. They have accumulated over 260 rescue dogs (and one pig!) in a short time and need your help.

This project is also open to non-veterinary skilled people, so partners and friends are welcome. The minimum age of independent travellers is 18 years old. Student workbook signing can be arranged if your college allows international experience. Student groups can be accommodated from October 2018.

Work hours are approximately 9am-4pm but anything can happen in rescue and its important to be flexible. Daily chores include but are not limited to;

Please note volunteers mainly undertake a husbandry role, helping with the daily care of over 260 animals. This is not a vet nursing role, but your skills will come in handy if/when an animal needs assistance. Currently, the organisation does not have a vet clinic, but plans are underway to facilitate on site medical cases. From October 2018 when our resident vet nurse will be on site, there will be more scope for students to gain valuable nursing experience. A local veterinarian visits once a week and any urgent cases are taken to a veterinary clinic in Chiang Mai. This is when volunteer vet nurses may be able to assist with any ongoing care required.

Accommodation and most meals provided on site (max 8 people)
