About Vietnam Animal Aid and Rescue and Hoi An:

Hoi An is 30km south of Da Nang, a large city with an international airport that has direct flights to Singapore, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Seoul as well as quick connections to Hanoi and Saigon. While Vietnam is not a highly developed country, staff will find almost everything they need in Hoi An as a big tourist attraction and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

During your time off, you are welcome to visit the many sites in the area and take a motorbike or bicycle tour of the beautiful countryside, mountains, and beaches. There is scuba diving and snorkelling at nearby Cham Island during the Spring and Summer and that can be either a day trip or an overnight stay on the island. There is always plenty of time on a day off to get some sun at the nearby beach too.

The food is great (especially for vegans!) and the people are friendly. We believe Hoi An is simply a very nice place to live. There are many cheap places to eat and we have cooking facilities at the clinic. The organisation promotes veganism, therefore we do not allow any animal products to be consumed on the property. You are free to eat whatever you like offsite and there are many restaurants in town. We hope you understand that this ties in with the mission of VAAR (protecting animal rights of all species).

While the clinic is a home for the on-site manager as well as volunteers, its primary purpose is providing high standards veterinary care for regular daily patients, inpatients undergoing treatment and emergency treatment. This means that when an animal is in need and/or needs to be cared for all night, this takes priority. While we do enjoy relaxing and having a few drinks out or at home, if you are looking for a party, this needs to be reserved for your day and night off. All vet staff and volunteers are entitled to a day off and going out the night before is fine as long as you do not bring the after party to the clinic. Guests are not allowed in the clinic under any circumstances.

We would like our staff to seriously consider the mission we are on here and look at their time here as a job in a beautiful place, not merely a holiday with a little clinical work to do. Our directors get very little time off and we require staff to be on top of things so we can do the work we need to on the computer, in meetings, doing fundraising, and on general rescue missions. We LOVE our staff and truly need them, so please do not apply if you cannot commit to the mission as we all have here.
