We welcome all the help!
We are fiercely dedicated to helping as many animals as possible, but with very limited resources at hand our mission faces very challenges times - we need all the help we can get!
Our ideal volunteer is a passionate, hardworking, motivated and mature (regardless of age) animal enthusiast - someone who is committed, proactive and independent, willing to roll up their sleeves and do what needs to be done, and ready to brave difficult situations - helping at our sanctuary can be emotionally challenging.
We host people from all walks of life - if you can show love to our animals, you are welcome!
Socialization is one of our biggest needs, so a working knowledge or experience in dog training/behavior and animal handling (eg. moving disabled dogs in & out of wheelchairs, hydrotherapy, enrichment practices, etc.) would be valued bonus.
Other ways in which we'd appreciate a helping hand are also things like handyman tasks/ building maintenance, marketing & social media, web design/ development, fundraising initiatives and general admin tasks such as maintaining our animal shelter records.
The main part of our work here at the foundation is socializing and walking our dogs along with some cleaning duties and helping our staff clean the runs in the morning.
As well as general volunteers to help with the above we would love to host the following:
Animals caregiver to take care and socialize out dogs and other animals
Adoptions Coordinator to concentrate on finding our dogs new homes
Social media experts to help us and our cause on Instagram, FB and all social media platforms
We are also always on the lookout for photographers and/or videographers to carry & promote our message to the world.
We welcome any help and we are keen to host long term volunteers as well as short holiday volunteers.
All volunteers will be asked to arrive on the same day, which will be on Sunday.
There is a national park nearby, lake scenery and many hidden villages to discover.
Given our rural location, public transportation (taxis & buses) is limited but we do have a couple of pushbikes that our volunteers are welcome to for exploring the local village.
Transportation for excursion day trips can be pre-arranged.
Please note that travel /health insurance is mandatory to volunteer with us.
The Volunteer House is located in the shelter area.
We have two rooms - one shared room 3 single beds, 1 bunk bed and a private room with a double bed for a couple.
Volunteers can use our swimming pool and communal kitchen, they can also make a free laundry.
We don't charge for accommodation, it's free.
We kindly ask our volunteers for 5$/150 baht a day for meals ( homemade vegetarian Thai style lunch and dinner upon your dietary). We provide free drinking water.
We would love for you to join our team and meet our furry friends - you are sure to lose your heart!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Saved Souls Foundation

We are a private animal shelter located deep in the heart of Thailand, where dogs rescued over 550 dogs from the illegal dog meat trade, abusive situations and accidents, as well as other animals, have found a new, loving home. Many of these animals come to us so traumatized that they have lost all trust in mankind. It may take years of intensive socialization before these dogs are ever ready to trust humans again.
We are a private animal shelter located deep in the heart of Thailand founded in 2010 and becoming a foundation in 2017.
