The Fondouk is a non-profit, charitable venture that's been in existence on the edge of the Fez Medina for some 80 years. There are 10 staff members as well as some volunteer veterinary students. The practice sees about 20 000 animals a year, primarily working animals such as mules and donkeys, farm animals and pets.

Candidates should have at least 7 years' experience and be fluent in English and French. Housing and a vehicle are provided, as well as insurance. Responsibilities include supervision of staff, management and teaching opportunities with the international internship programme and operations oversight. Interested applicants should submit a resume or CV and introductory letter to Colleen Stanton, Recruiter, MSPCA-Angell, 350 S. Huntington Ave. Boston, MA 02130 USA or via email to

Sandy, you or Ms. Stanton might consider sending a copy of this posting to Peace Corps. To be honest, I do not know if Peace Corps Morocco still runs a vet program, but in my day they had a good program with very experienced American veterinarians. You never know when someone who has one or two years in country might want to accept a more permanent assignment, and experience in Morocco would be a plus, I think. Just a thought.
