VAAR is seeking a dedicated, highly-organized, experienced, and compassionate Animal Caretaker to assist our team in the daily operations of our sanctuary and help the organization expand into projects that will prevent animal suffering in central Vietnam.
Taking care of animals is much more than feeding them. A clean shelter is essential to ensuring the health of the animals, and as the Founder ran their own nonprofit veterinary clinic for several years, they will train you on how to maintain clinic standards. There is a lot of enrichment to be done for the animals each day, as well as shelter management to ensure we have a safe and secure environment for our rescues.
When we have enough funding, we will re-start our mobile vet clinic for medical animal emergencies with local poverty-stricken families, as well as vaccination and sterilization community projects.
Vietnam's borders are open and there are currently no COVID restrictions.
5 working days per week / 2 days off
6 to 8 working hours per day
Offsite accommodation stipend up to 3 million VND
21 days annual paid holiday
$430 USD per month (10 million VND) with possibility of pay increase after 3 month training period (while this is low for US standards, we also have an extremely low cost of living as well as significantly less funding than US organizations).
Vietnam Animal Aid is an animal rights organization that has a rescue shelter and farm animal sanctuary in Hoi An, Vietnam. We are part of a growing global, non-speciesist animal rights movement that works to protect all sentient beings. Our mission is to end the suffering of all species through mass sterilization/vaccination, education, and improving veterinary care across Vietnam. We advocate for a fully vegan lifestyle and for the abolition of all animal use and exploitation.
