Animal Care Internship

Animal Care Internship

As an Animal Care Intern you will work side-by-side our experienced caregivers and veterinarians learning techniques and proper care methods for the special needs of our rescued animals. Pasado’s offers an in-depth look at the many layers that are involved in animal sanctuaries including the rescue and welfare of its residents and how adopting a vegan diet can help save animals and the environment. It is hard work.  But it’s enormously fulfilling work, too.

By the completion of your internship, you will have extended your comfort level with medicating animals, learning proper animal nutrition, cleaning and sanitizing enclosures, and knowing the satisfaction of gaining the trust of un-socialized and abused animals. The program will provide you with a lifetime of memories and you can feel accomplished knowing that you’ve made a difference to these animals that have been through so much. Pasado’s Safe Haven currently offers only commuting internships.  Please email for more information.

Unfortunately, at this time we do not have onsite housing for interns. Interns are responsible for arranging their own living accommodations and transportation.
