Mother and son volunteer to help animals on holiday

Volunteer Experiences / 12 September 2023 Mother and son volunteer to help animals on holiday

Thank you so much to Simona and Lucas for choosing to spend their holidays this year helping rescued animals around the world with Pod Volunteer. 

After joining our Wildlife Rescue project in Costa Rica at the start of the year, they headed over to Thailand in the summer where Lucas joined our Elephant Care & Wildlife Rescue project on his own before they teamed up again to volunteer at our Dog Rescue project in Southern Thailand. What a fantastic way to help animals in need whilst making unforgettable memories together!

Simona shared her heart-warming experience volunteering at the Dog Rescue project here:

The Dog Rescue project are looking for volunteers to join for 1 week + throughout the year and it’s an ideal project for families with children aged 8 years + to join. Volunteers are needed to help walk and socialise the rescued dogs which gives them vital exercise, fun and freedom. The dogs need to learn to walk on a lead and be more used to human interaction before they can find their forever home and be adopted into their new families. You can find out all about the role, accommodation and project here:
