Volunteering at PPAWS

PPAWS welcomes the opportunity to work with local and international volunteers. Whether you will be in Cambodia for a few weeks or months or, if you live here, we are very open to discussing how we can best employ your talents either at our Clinic or, during the course of any missions that we run. If you are a Veterinary student or a qualified Vet or Clinicla Nurse or simply an animal lover looking to help and make a difference, then please contact us.

Vets Beyond Borders

Vets Beyond Borders and have been an amazing partner, helping us with volunteers and training programmes. We’re also to be a beneficiary of their new VetTrain programme this year, which we’ve invited other local organisations to come and benefit from as well. If you’re a member (or a qualified Vet or Clinicla Nurse), and can help PPAWS out in anyway we’d love to hear from you!


Whether you’re a local business who could host an event, or a school who could plan a fun, fundraising activity, any kind of charity drive will go a long way towards helping us achieve our goals and organise more missions. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have an idea for an event, and we’ll help out in anyway we can.

Social media/Marketing

Similarly, even if you are not able to be hands-on in person, we are also very interested to discuss how anyone with marketing or fund raising skills can help promote PPAWS on social media and other digital channels. We are constantly seeking funding to help us grow our capabilities, so if you feel you can help us achieve this locally or in your home country or, internationally then again, please do get in touch.

Photography & Video

Being able to visually show the work we do is important. If you’re in Cambodia and have photography and/or video making skills, these would be a great help in promoting our missions and encouraging donations. If you can accompany our team on a mission or even help out at our Phnom Penh clinic, we’d love to hear from you!

We'd Love to Hear from You!
