The WIldlife Hospital is located on the property of Wildlife Rescue Centre (WRC), that hosts many wildlife animals that have been rescued from unfortunate circumstances. Some are rehabilitated to be released, and the ones who cannot be released - get spend the rest of their lives in a safe environment. The hospital attends to the residents of the WRC.
There are two veterinarians that are employed at the wildlife hospital and they are assisted by vet nurses. Hospital volunteers will assist with all duties in and around the hospital, including cleaning, and animal treatments.A volunteer position at this wildlife hospital is an ideal option for those that are studying to become a veterinarian or vet-assistant, or a qualified veterinarian or vet assistant who wants to give back and help wildlife.
Volunteering in Wildlife Hospital in the Wildlife Rescue Center in Laos is also an option.
