SAVE THE DOGS AND OTHER ANIMALS - VETERINARY SURGEON POSITION (SALARIED)

Vets

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE OF THE ROLE Save the Dogs is an animal welfare organisation based in Romania which comprises of an animal shelter and a clinic located in the Constanta region. The organisation was founded in 2002 with the aim to promote a culture in Romania where people recognise the importance of animal welfare in their communities and where the inhumane killing of stray dogs stops. We provide free sterilisation and registration services for dogs at our clinic and through our mobile clinic. Dogs housed at the shelter are treated as necessary and rehomed through our adoption services, both within and outside the country. We are looking to recruit experienced and animal welfare focused Veterinary Surgeons, for a mimimum 3month contract, ideally longer (6-12 month) contract to work in our clinic and shelter in Cernavodǎ, Romania. Save The Dogs’ brand new, purposely build vet clinic opened in October 2017. For more information on what we do please visit http://www.savethedogs.eu/

Esperanza Verde

Vets, Vet Nurses, Vet Students, Non-Vets

WVS are delighted to be supporting Esperanza Verde, a wildlife rescue centre and conservation project based in Peru within the Amazon jungle. Many animal species fall victim to illegal hunting, either for meat or to be sold into the pet trade. Esperanza Verde rescue and rehabilitate animals that have been confiscated from the illegal wildlife trade. Where possible they release animals back into the wild, however sadly this is not possible in all cases. As a result they also provide permanent homes to animals deemed unfit for release. They protect a large area of rainforest and actively look to reforest areas previously lost to farming or logging.

These animals include woolly monkeys, spider monkeys, squirrel monkeys, tamarin monkeys, night monkeys, capuchins, sloths, kinkajous, and peccaries, as well as an array of birds and reptiles.
