Volunteering your time for Animals
Volunteering your time for Animals
Owing to the breadth and scope of our work, ALL CREATURES continuously seeks out individuals with a deep desire to support some of our activities by volunteering on our projects in Malawi. Our projects are suited for a wide variety of backgrounds that include animal carers, vet students, qualified veterinarians and perhaps retired ones too that would like to travel to Malawi or continental Africa and support a worthy cause at the same time.
Our volunteer program is flexible to individuals that wish to break from their usual job or work, to travel and contribute towards a specific animal cause. We have several projects for volunteers but do offer a mix of experiences for those individuals that would like to get more involved in other activities. Volunteers may engage in animal rescue & sheltering, veterinary clinics, livestock clinics, education (Roots & Shoots) and Animal Protection are an ongoing activity, other activities like the national mass rabies vaccinations, spay and neuter (world spay & world animal day) are often pre-arranged and these require prior booking.
We have unwavering commitment to volunteer satisfaction and technical development. Malawi is one of the world’s 20 poorest countries and by implication, your time on the projects makes a very big difference to our programme and have a big impact on the livelihoods of both animals and people.
Consultants Programme (Share your Expertise)
Volunteers that qualify for this category are typically qualified professionals characteristically responding to a requirement at either one of our Animal Resource Centres of field projects.
The individual should be willing to stay for at least three months but not exceeding six months. This is a free placement that requires the individual to care for themselves and make a $1,000 donation. This is an opportunity for professionals to spend some time on our projects contributing to causes that matter to them.
The specialties range from builders, vets, marketing, accountants, and many others. This is a greatly varied set of specialties and should you feel that there any of our programmes that you wish to join, kindly email firstname.lastname@example.org.

International Volunteer Programme
ALL CREATURES greatly values volunteers that come to our organization, either as a short professional stay or simply a college externship. Since we have a wide scope of activities, we have a very interesting and a variety of volunteer experiences that can cater to all animal-lovers interests. We offer a special African experience but no doubt we are cognizant of the special skills and outlook that you impart to the staff and your general contribution to the organization as a whole.
We accept volunteers between 2 weeks and maximum three months. Unlike the previous placements, volunteer experiences require that you contribute towards your stay and the project that you are undertaking. Volunteers are also encouraged to carry one or two items from ALL CREATURES Wish list in order to support our cause as well as the operational team. Get involved in our veterinary and research projects to enrich your African and professional experience. Applications or inquiries on placement availability may be sent to email@example.com
What Our Volunteers Say About Us
"I recently spent a month volunteering [with ALL CREATURES] from the US and it was one of the best decisions I've made. Everyone was so welcoming and I learned just as much as I trained. The vet staff here is open to helping everyone: from driving 6 hours to attend to an injured horse to doing an emergency surgery on Christmas day, they made sure they did what was best for the animal and that dedication is rare. I'm definitely going back and I'd encourage anyone to do the same."
Sarah Goos, Nursing Student (Colorado USA)
"ALL CREATURES provided me with the on the ground experience I really needed to pursue my career in animal welfare in a developing country. I was led by a very knowledgeable team of vets and animal care takers who are so dedicated and passionate in what they do. It was an eye-opening experience, and one that will motivate me to keep following my dreams. I now know what it takes to run an organization like their's and I hope one day to gain more support for this organization in Malawi!"
Burgandie Coy, Vet Tech (Nebraska, USA)
I loved my experience with ALL CREATURES. Through my daughter, I got the chance to volunteer for a week. It was enriching to see so many dogs coming from the streets, starting out weak and skinny, growing into large healthy dogs with the care of ALL CREATURES. I am so thankful this organization exists to help these dogs. I am looking forward to coming back in the future!
Marie Claire Minne, Retired Pediatrician (Belgium)

The wish list is updated annually to reflect the urgent needs of the organization.

The Children’s League
ALL CREATURES CHILDREN’S LEAGUE is the brain-child of Martha Ssuna the eight year old daughter of Dr. Richard Ssuna, Country Director and Founder of ALL CREATURES. The spirited little Martha is determined to save the animals of the planet and in her quest to do so she approached several of her friends and recruited them into the LEAGUE. The aim of the league is to instill in young people the attitude of caring for animals and to give them a platform to be actively involved in advocating for the welfare of animals. The League has over the past few months held various activities in pursuit of fulfilling its aim. Some of the activities have included baking and selling dog biscuits, making and selling animal themed Christmas cards, visiting a fish and pig farm, molding bricks for a fundraising activites and much more! We are very confident that these little troopers will grow into firm adherers of animal welfare principles and will always advocate for and educate others about the same.
