1- Short-term Service Programs

Host Family and Volunteeer

Asis Wild Animal Rescue Center: Help take care of wild animals by feeding them, cleaning their enclosures and/or assisting in repairing or building new enclosures.


But ‘why pay to volunteer?’ you may ask. Well, part of this money goes to pay the family who hosts and feeds you, some income is spread throughout the local community, while the rest is invested in direct support of the valuable work for wild animal rescue center that Proyecto Asis carries out, every day, all year round. This allows us to feed the animals, repair and build enclosures for them and look after their needs.

Short-term service programs include:

1. Instruction. 2. Homestay (including meals, laundry). 3. 24/7 support.

All our volunteer programs are 20 hours per week, Monday through Friday.
*After 8 weeks $400/week

If you have any unique skills or interests that may benefit our community, please let us know and we will do our best to put them to good use.

We also offer combination Spanish and Service programs. Please contact us for more information.
