Our clinic day teams include: Registration, Anesthesia, Prep (shaving), Surgery, Recovery, and Check-Out.
We also have teams that set up the clinic and tear it down. Pet Taxi volunteers provide rides to villagers to and from the clinic as needed.
It is helpful to have Spanish-speakers in Registration and Check-Out, but we have many other positions where spanish is not needed. The main thing is you have a desire to help end animal-suffering from overpopulation.
