Take a Vacation...and Help an Animal!

Very cool article with great ideas for those of us who would like to combine traveling with animal work.

I've bookmarked it for further research. Hopefully, I won't have to sell our house to go!

Voluntourism as it's being dubbed by the travel industry, offers people from all walks of life, the opportunity to visit interesting places in the U.S. as well as remote and exotic destinations, and volunteer their time or specific skills for the benefit of a cause of their choosing — and animal welfare and related environmental issues top the list.

Charity Guide a Web-based volunteer directory that puts it all on a plate for potential volunteer vacationers.

The Web site lists some of the best volunteer vacation possibilities offered worldwide by reputable organizations and links potential travelers directly to them so that they can efficiently glean all the information they need to put their travel arrangements in motion.
