Seeking ways to integrate with local communities while travelling.

Free Volunteering with Animals (Cats and Dogs)

Hello Volunteers! We are looking for you!

We need animal-loving, mature, self-sufficient adults to come to P.A.W. Animal Sanctuary and help adorable island animals, mostly cats and dogs. Duties include care for the animals (feed, water, cleaning and of course playing!) 3-5 hours per day.

We’re located on the tropical paradise island of Caye Caulker, Belize! In your off-time there is lots to do such as adventure tours, cave tubing, diving the reef, swimming with sharks and rays, and touring Mayan site on the mainland. Or just chill out on our beach with a coconut!

Volunteering is FREE and dorm-style accommodation is provided. Dockside pick-up is available as well. A two-month minimum commitment is needed.

Come make a difference with the animals! Contact at and check out our website for other volunteering opportunities (, however the website is slightly outdated so contact for current rates and availabilities.

We also operate a hostel for income to feed the kitties, so if you can’t volunteer for two months, come stay with us when you visit Caye Caulker to support the animals.
