Fauna Silvestre & Animales in Argentina

What’s included in our fair-cost policy?

 

All our programs include a fixed price Registration Fee of US$249 and a Program Fee that varies according to the duration of the program and the services included.

 

The Registration Fee covers the costs of all that Connecting Worlds has to do in order to organise the experience in an efficient manner and offer each participant a quality program. These costs include marketing, staff salaries, travel costs of staff who visit and inspect each of the programs on offer and Connecting Worlds’ solidarity fund among others. We need this fee just to sustain the organization.

 

The Program Fee is the total cost of everything related to the services that the volunteer will be able to take advantage of upon arrival to the destination of their choice. For example, accommodation, meals, transfers, the donation made to the volunteer project, welcome orientation and constant 24/7 support. The payment for this fee goes directly to the country in which the volunteer will be stationed, directly benefiting the local community. It’s a fee which helps organisations that work in the country associated with the program at hand to move forwards with their projects and generate work opportunities for the local community.

 

Thanks to our fair-cost policy, the volunteer benefits from not having to pay high fees and our local partners benefit from being able to invest in their projects and keep things moving forwards. Connecting Worlds also benefits from keeping the costs of its programs as low as possible because we get the opportunity to support local communities and make a difference in our own small but important way.

 

Animal Refuge Center in Jose C. Paz, 50 minutes from central Buenos Aires

 

This Animal Refuge Center was created 60 years ago and is now home to more than 700 dogs and 70 cats. It is the largest place of its kind in the region. They are a No-Kill organization dedicated to caring for all homeless animals brought into their care. As the largest No-Kill shelter in Jose C. Paz in the province of Buenos Aires, they provide interim shelter and medical care to homeless, injured or abandoned animals. They also run education programs for the community on responsible animal ownership. All the animals they receive are cured of their ailments both physical and psychological, socialised with humans and other animals, vaccinated, cured of intestinal parasites, and spayed and neutered. Then they’re ready for adoption into loving homes. One reason they have more than 700 animals in their care is their No-Kill policy. They will only euthanise an animal for whom life is too much incurable suffering, so everyone who doesn’t get adopted stays with them and becomes part of a (very large) family.

Volunteer tasks:

Here are some ideas for volunteers, you can:

-Feeding the dogs and cats

-Taking videos of their adoptable pets for their Facebook fan page

-Assisting in applying bandages and dressings

-Administering injections and medication under supervision of the veterinary doctor (only for veterinary students)

-Cleaning the animal shelters

-Playing with the dogs

-Walking the dogs

-Brushing the animals
