Project Details

Description and Impact

We are looking for veterinarians who want [to make] a change!

We operate a stray animal recovery center in the foothills of the Himalayas near Dharamsala, India. We treat injured and sick stray dogs, cows, horses, cats, and any other animal we can help.

We are looking for veterinarians who can help treat animals on site, train our staff in better medical techniques, and streamline our stray dog sterilization program.

Great for people with medical skills! Interested but not the right length? Like our organization and have an idea how your skills can help us? Message us at: match@movingworlds.org


This project will be a success if the staff come out with better technique, the clinic is set up for more hygienic and streamlined procedures, and our surgical techniques are improved.
