Voluntary Work With Animals Worldwide

There are many different approaches to save endangered wildlife. Some animal conservation projects focus on protecting the habitat of the animals while other animal volunteer work focuses on injured and rescued animals in sanctuaries. In some cases, breeding critically endangered animals in a sanctuary environment is the last hope of conserving the species.

In many countries worldwide, domesticated animals and pets face a very sad reality as well. Cats, dogs, and other popular pets are being abandoned by their owners and live on the streets where they reproduce and add to the problem of an overflow of street animals.
