The charity KAWS who are based in Kitwe regularly visit Chingola where they witness numerous dogs scavenging for food on the main highway, narrowly being hit by vehicles, having stones thrown at them, severely malnutritioned, and sadly witness far too many killed on the side of the road. KAWS rescue as many as they can but unfortunately it is far too little for a community of this size, plus with the local Chingola SPCA forced to close down last year it has left a massive issue for the dogs and cats in this community.
There are only a few veterinarians in this region and they need as much help on the ground as possible.
Veterinarians must have 3 years experience
Veterinarians will have independence to carry out surgical procedures, vaccinations and medical treatment. You will have a team of vet assistants and vet students under your leadership and guidance, working alongside the local veterinarians. You must be confident performing sterilisation surgeries unassisted and other routine operations.
