Since inception, we have performed more than 10,000 surgeries and treated tens of thousands domestic animals in the Samana peninsula

Project Samana welcomes veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and veterinary students to work with us in the Dominican Republic.  All volunteers pay for their own transportation, room and board while participating in the project.  You may also be asked to secure and transport supplies.  The trips usually run $1200 to $1600 per person, depending on whether you share a room. Flexibility, team work, and a sense of humor are mandatory.  If interested, check out our trip calendar, and send us an email with your resume attached telling us why you want to volunteer and which trip you want to join.  We will forward it to the trip leader. Or, contact Dr. Labdon or Dr. Freedman for Samana small animal trips, Dr. Grace or Dr. Merriam about the Samana Equine trips.  A small stipend may be available for experienced veterinary technicians.
