Good To Know
Contribute your knowledge and efforts to the local projects and organizations while practicing Spanish and working together!
In Puerto Escondido there are organizations helping to take care of the street dogs in the area. The “Huellitas de Acero” refuge share the same objective, to improve the lives and health of dogs through education and control programs
Volunteers can select to spend their time caring for animals in the shelter, where the dogs can roam freely and receive food and care. Volunteers can also choose to be part of the team who is responsible for vaccinating and sterilization campaigns.
This gives volunteers the opportunity to meet and talk to local people, helping to educate them on animal welfare while practicing their Spanish.
During vaccination campaigns (three times per year), volunteers can assist with vaccinations in different locations. Also, during sterilization campaigns, volunteers can assist with the process and take care of the dogs during rehabilitation. Volunteers with interest in working at veterinarians can assist and learn about sterilization.
