Job Description

Zanzibar Animals Affection Society (ZAASO)

As a charitable donation-funded NGO we aim to:

  • Establish care, support and animal protection services
  • Tackle the stray animal population problem
  • Stop animal overloading, beating, mishandling and cruelty
  • Provide education and awareness to local communities

The workload varies throughout the week and the year but generally the vet is busy spaying, castrating, responding to emergency and house calls as well as attending to animals brought directly to the clinic.

On Saturday morning there is an Open Community Clinic where the local people bring their cows, goats and dogs for free dip-washing. Our vet also attends to any animal brought in for medical treatment; be it cows, goats, dogs, cats or the occasional chicken or rabbit. Often over 50 animals pass through the clinic on any given Saturday.


Accommodation is on a share basis and volunteers are required to buy their own food and drinks for the duration of their stay. There are fresh seafood, meat and vegetable markets in Stone Town, which provide cheap and delicious ingredients to cook yourself. There are also plenty of restaurants and market stalls offering local food.


Minimum stay is 1 week, maximum stay is 3 months and we are open all year round.


$30 per person and per day.
