About The Program:
Pawesome’s Spay and Neuter Cambodia is a powerful 11 day experience into the challenges faced by the dogs and cats of Cambodia’s Pagodas and Temples. Our program provides each patient with five basic veterinary treatments needed to make their tough street life a little more comfortable; sterilization, core vaccine, rabies vaccine, flea & tick spot on and a worming treatment. We hope to positively impact the lives of more than 500 homeless animals through our Spay and Neuter Cambodia project.

To bring this program to life we partner with a local shelter to provide invaluable no cost treatments and care to the Pagoda dogs and cats of Phnom Penh. We also make sure to extend the invitation to all low income families and their pets. Patient care and patient needs are always our top priority.

We invite all qualified vets, vet nurses/techs and students to apply for this program.
