Future Nicaragua Clinics
Future Nicaragua clinics (2016, 2017...)  will likely be scheduled for the end of January.  We can accommodate several non veterinary volunteers on the Nicaragua clinic.  Intake, surgical instrument processing, pack wrap and autoclave tasks, clinic maintenance and clean up tasks all can be done by a non veterinary volunteer.  Spanish language skills are a plus, but not necessary for several of these jobs.

Please do not apply for international clinics if you are afraid of international travel.  
We are not a tour guides or a travel agency. We do not have the time or the energy to coddle you.  If your mother is going to tell you not to come, please do not apply! It wastes our time and takes up space on our roster that might otherwise be taken up by people who do not need as much personal attention.  
If you want to be a tourist, sleep in a hotel....  there are other paid opportunities that might fit your needs, our clinics will not.
