I have volunteered on two, three week trips with Pacific Islands Animal Welfare
I have enjoyed them immensely; the team I worked with were great at their job and now lifelong friends, the donated supplies were fantastic. Sam is very dedicated and strives to make sure she accommodates everyone’s working needs. I look forward to more welfare clinics in future.
IV Veterinary nursing
Volunteering to help the indigenous Pacific Islanders and their pets is so fulfilling.
These owners that have nothing, but are happy people, are so grateful for our presence in helping their pets. In turn that slowly improves the health and welfare of the broader pet population.
The clinic team pull together well and there’s no performance levels to achieve from traditional practice! Each time I fly back into a venue I’ve previously volunteered at, I’m like a little kid re-visiting my favourite playground – catching up with old friends (and to make new ones) and enjoying what we’ve come to do – provide social welfare to the animals.

This is my second trip Volunteering with PIAW and it’s always a great experience.
It was hard work but very rewarding. Dealing with field clinic conditions had it challenges and some days we didn’t even have running water in the village community, but it was great to know that I was making a real difference to the animal’s lives. All the local people we met were so welcoming, I didn’t expect to find such a warm welcome from all the people we met. I would absolutely volunteer again, it was a fabulous experience.
