In Chinchiná, we partner with Palestina Animal Shelter and Lina's Dog Haven. Volunteers will take part in a public awareness campaign and visit homes, surveying animal populations and promoting a free animal clinic sponsored by ISL. Volunteers will bring adoptable dogs into partner non-profits, providing pet therapy for senior citizens and other populations who might benefit. Volunteers will also have the chance to visit the Universidad de Caldas Veterinary Hospital where they will visit a class, network with students, and shadow veterinarians in small and large animal care.

About Colombia

Colombia is the second most biodiverse country in the world and is experiencing economic and cultural transformation with its recently found civil peace and growing trade with the U.S.  Urban areas have made great strides in reducing poverty and providing healthcare, but rural areas are still in great need of healthcare, education, and development support.
