We have amazing volunteers that dedicate their time and energy to savings the lives of animals. Here are some things they've said about CANDi's volunteer programs.

I was nervous going into this experience as I was very unsure of what to expect, but to see the gratitude and smiles from each of the owners made it all worthwhile and brought tears to my eyes on a number of occasions.

Nicole Barton
Animal Health Technician (AHT)

I definitely plan on taking part in the program again and would recommend it to anyone who has a passion for helping animals in need.

Veronica Oggy
Registered Veterinarian Technician (RVT)

Everyone was willing to show and teach others, and after just a few hours on day one we were in a groove like we’d been doing it for years.

Melanie Boccaccio

An extra bonus was interacting with the local vets, volunteers and owners. I really feel like I made a difference for the animals and their families.

Janet Jones
Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM)

These animals lives and quality of life will be changed for the better, and the amount of continuing care I see going on down there gives me peace of mind that there are people who tirelessly give their time to help.

Michelle Culpeper

Despite the heat, the long days, the aching feet and sore backs, there were no complaints and everyone worked hard all day long.

Joye S.
Registered Veterinarian Technician (RVT)

The volunteers are a pleasure to work with - both local and international - and the community support for CANDi is phenomenal.


This experience has made me grow as a person and as a Veterinarian. I learned so much about myself.
