People and Animals Thailand (PAT) is the latest volunteering project set up by WFFT to help tackle the problem of stray dogs and cats in Thailand.

A new clinic has opened between Cha Am and Hua Hin providing free neutering and vaccination to street dogs and cats. Using modern techniques and equipment you can gain valuable experience in a high volume neutering surgery in a sterile and well-organised environment. Using minimally invasive techniques and modern anaesthetics, we take and return animals to the streets on the same day. We can guarantee your stay will make a real long-term difference to the problem of street cats and dogs in Thailand.

Our volunteering projects run each week from Sunday to Sunday and we welcome volunteers all year round. The clinic is open from Monday to Friday, meaning that Saturday will be your day off. The clinic is a short distance from the beach and close to the major tourist towns of Hua Hin and Cha Am with plenty of activities to do in your free time. You will arrive at WFFT’s Wildlife Rescue Centre on a Sunday and be given a tour before heading off to the clinic.

The fee for the PAT Clinic is a flat rate of €350 per week. This covers the cost of your accommodation and 3 meals per day, as well as a donation directly towards the running of the clinic. Comfortable accommodation is provided on site with air-conditioned rooms. As we can only accept a maximum of 4 volunteers at the PAT Clinic places are very limited, so we recommend applying a few months in advance.

Although you do not need to be a veterinary professional to volunteer at PAT we do encourage veterinarians, veterinary technicians, or veterinary students to apply. You are able to work closely with our veterinary team, observing and assisting with various tasks. Duties may include patient admission, administering sedatives and other medications, preparing animals for surgery, assisting with surgery, monitoring patients, wound care, monitoring recovery, discharging patients, keeping the clinic clean and general clinic tasks.

Please note non-veterinary professionals at this project mostly assist with animal admissions, patient logging, cleaning and observation of patients.

You also need to fulfil the following criteria:

  • You must be 18 years old or over
  • You must be able to speak a good level of English
  • You must be of good physical and mental health
  • You must have a current rabies vaccination
  • You must have a positive and practical attitude towards animal welfare

Volunteering at PAT can be combined with any of the other volunteering projects at WFFT and transport between them will be arranged.

Please note that all projects require a minimum commitment of 1 week. The maximum booking length at any one time is 12 weeks, however this may be extended on site (subject to availability).

If volunteering at the PAT Clinic sounds like something you would like to do, please submit your application form here: Volunteer Application Form

For more information about our projects please refer to our Volunteer Information Pack or speak to one of our Volunteer Coordinators at volunteer@wfft.org. Thank you for your consideration. We hope you will be able to join us!

Transport Details

Arranging transfers to and from PAT

We are able to arrange transfers for volunteers from Bangkok, Hua Hin or Cha Am. Payments need to be made in cash (Thai Baht) to the driver on arrival.

Please note you will arrive at WFFT’s Wildlife Rescue Centre on a Sunday and be given a tour before heading off to the PAT Clinic.

If you wish to be picked up from an airport please send us the arrival date and time, the name of the airport you will be flying in to, and your flight number.

If you would like to be picked up from a hotel please send us the hotel name, full address, and phone number. The best time for a hotel pick-up from Bangkok is 9AM, and the best pick-up time from Hua Hin or Cha Am is 10AM. This will ensure that you will be here on time to have lunch and get a tour around WFFT from a Volunteer Coordinator.

Sometimes we are also able to arrange a shared transfer with other new volunteers arriving on the same day. However, this depends on what time you and other volunteers are available to be picked up. Please let us know if you are interested in sharing a taxi, or if you would prefer a private transfer. Do note that it is only possible to share a taxi with other volunteers if you are being picked up from the same airport or the same hotel.

Bangkok - 2200 Baht per taxi

We are able to collect you from either Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK), Don Mueang Airport (DMK), or a hotel. We are able to arrange transfers from Bangkok between 6AM and 2PM, because WFFT is still a 3 hour drive away and otherwise there will be no staff member available to greet you.

Hua Hin - 700 Baht per taxi

We are able to collect you from a hotel, bus station, or train station. We are able to arrange pick-ups from Hua Hin between 6AM and 4PM. WFFT is a 1 hour drive from Hua Hin.

Please note that for bus or train station pick-ups you must call us on arrival as trains and buses can arrive much later than scheduled, and we do not want to keep our drivers waiting.

Cha Am - 400 Baht per taxi

We are able to collect you from a hotel, bus station, or train station. We are able to arrange pick-ups from Cha Am between 6AM and 4PM. WFFT is a 30 minute drive from Cha Am.

Please note that for bus or train station pick-ups you must call us on arrival as trains and buses can arrive much later than scheduled, and we do not want to keep our drivers waiting.

For call on arrivals at bus or train stations please contact a volunteer coordinator at (+66-876640260) or  (+66-871060992) and we will send a taxi for you. Please note that we cannot arrange a taxi pick-up on arrival later than 4PM.

Drop-offs

We are also able to arrange drop-offs in Bangkok, Hua Hin or Cha Am on your departure day (please inform us if you need to leave on a different day than your departure day). We arrange these taxis when you are here.

We can arrange taxis to Bangkok any time between 6AM and 7PM, or to Hua Hin and Cha Am any time between 6AM and 10PM.
