Asia Pacific


Singapore - Small Animal Practice

The practice is seeking the services of a doctor with practical knowledge and skills. What’s needed is someone able to look after the Patients well, and provide a good service to the Clients. The medical standard offered to Clients is high, and less expensive alternatives are provided as options.

Support includes an experienced Team (so flexibility is important), and modern facilities and a high level of equipment.

From the doctors’ viewpoint, if you are able to operate with at least a little independence, the practice provides a fantastic opportunity to develop skills, being equipped well for imaging in radiology, ultrasound, and endoscopy; surgery in soft tissue and orthopaedics; dermatology; ophthalmology; and TCVM; and supports and encourages high level internal medicine. Additionally, it supports continuing education in whatever relevant field you choose, with flexible leave and financial support packages and equipment purchasing. You can potentially grow faster here than at a large referral practice. You do not need to be an expert to begin.

Remuneration is better than competitive, and Singapore is similar in many ways to London or Sydney – a big, fast, air-conditioned, well fed, english-speaking city.

If you believe you may be a candidate and are interested in our position, please contact us ( / +65 91465265) and we’ll help you decide.

saved souls

Veterinary Volunteers urgently needed - Saved Souls Animal Sanctuary in beautiful Northern Thailand

Saved Souls Animal Sanctuary is currently in desperate need of volunteer veterinarians to provide much needed medical care to the shelter's 600 canine resident, 45 feline residents, and 5 rescued pigs.  The shelter provides long-term care for dogs that were abandoned, rescued from the cruel dog meat trade, and have severe medical conditions that precluded them from being returned to the streets. 

The shelter has a basic on-site clinic equipped with isolation space and treatment room. At the moment, a lack of medical staff means that all sick and injured patients have to be transported to a hospital daily 45 minutes away.  Volunteers vets and nurses would therefore conduct on-site medical rounds, assist with animal treatments, help improve animal welfare for sheltered dogs, and assist with managing cases of infectious disease.  The shelter also has a large number of paralyzed dogs which require special attention.  We ask that volunteer applicants have graduated at least 2 years already. Although we try to provide the best possible care for our animals, we are a limited-resource facility treating patients with severe disease, which creates an environment that may be difficult for some to adapt to.

Applicants should be self-guided and have the ability to multi-task.  It is our hope that volunteers experience hands-on interaction with patients, learn technical skills in a limited-resource environment, and participate in diagnostic and treatment decisions. 

The shelter is located in a rural village in beautiful Ban Kok Gnam, 45 minutes away from Khon Kaen, Thailand.

 If you would like to volunteer at Saved Souls Animal Sanctuary or would like to know more, please contact Claudia at or Dr. Katherine Polak at

Our set up is best described as basic but we are looking to develop and grow the clinic and centre to cope with an ever increasing number of animals that are being admitted into the Centre.  Our work involves (and is not limited to) animal Birth Control Programme, anti rabies vaccinations, helping to prevent parvo, distemper and other fatal diseases in the community of stray and owned populations, emergency care for injured and ill animals, educating and raising awareness among the local community on how to care for and treat their pets and helping to feed the many strays and feeding the strays during the monsoon, which is an essential part of our work as most of the strays are without food out of the tourist season

Who We Are Looking For

We are looking for dynamic, self motivated and passionate veterinarians who are willing to commit to a minimum of six months – with the option to extend if both parties are happy!

The ARC project is raw so any vets should be ready and willing to work alone and help put in place all the protocols needed to improve and develop the services and facilities at ARC.  Other non-vet volunteers will be on hand to support the local team which is led by Janie.
