CANDi works with international volunteers and welfare organizations, as well as local animal groups in Mexico and the Caribbean to deliver programs that save the lives of stray cats and dogs. Opportunities exist for all types of volunteers, including those outside the veterinary field.
There are so many people involved in making a CANDI clinic a success! There are over 30 volunteers at each clinic, consisting of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, local rescue group volunteers and assistants. All are animal lovers who have various levels of experience with animals/the medical field but who all have a passion and commitment for the work we do! Membership is required to volunteer at a CANDi clinic. JOIN NOW!

Typical volunteer positions include:
- Veterinarians (10 open positions, Apply Here)
The vets perform the pre-surgery exams and complete the spay/neuter surgeries.
- Vet Techs (5-10 open positions, Apply Here)
AHT/LVT/RVT’s are generally assigned to one of 3 areas: induction (intubation, inserting catheters), surgery assistance or recovery.
- General Volunteers (5-10 open positions, Apply Here)
General Volunteers help out in just about every area of the clinic, including registration, induction and recovery, but are not required to have a medical background. Experience handling dogs and/or cats, including those with behavior issues, is recommended.
- Rescue Group Volunteers
Local rescue group volunteers are often involved in trapping/catching street dogs and bringing them in to the clinic to be altered. They are also the ones in charge of deciding if any of the groups can accept any animals as surrenders into their groups.
