International Volunteer

International Volunteer

Volunteers are the foundation of our organization. Every year, animal lovers from all over the world volunteer at KAT Nepal, creating a beautiful melting pot of cultures united by a common goal: animal welfare. Volunteers help with animal care, medical care (only for vet graduates or vet students), adoptions, awareness, and education programs.

A distinction from other recues, KAT Nepal has 2 ambulances, and you will get the opportunity to go out in the ambulances while rescuing sick and injured dogs.

KAT Nepal is approximately 25 minutes from Thamel by bus or Pathio.

There are a variety of boarding options around Budhanilkantha although most volunteers prefer to stay at the Green Palm. It is located on the outskirts of a national park and a short 20-minute walk to KAT Nepal.  Green Palm provides your breakfast and dinner while lunch is served for free at the shelter.

If you are a student experiencing your gap year or just in a place where you would like to volunteer but want to leave the planning to others, Green Lion has been connecting KAT Nepal with incredible worldwide volunteers for over ten years!
