Without volunteers we would not be able to do all the work that is necessary to run our shelter. We are very grateful for our volunteers who make it possible for us to take care of all the animals in need.
Your help as a volunteer at the shelter is extremely valuable to us. There are many ways to help us either in the cat house or with our dogs. If you have some time to spare during the week or on weekends we have plenty of jobs you can assist with!
Walk a dog
On Saturdays we take out all of the dogs for long and stimulating walks.
If you would like to join the us for weekend walking, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Chris, Steffi, Anna and Emma will welcome you at the volunteer meeting point and coordinate the walks, please be punctual and respect the instructions given by the team, the safety and well-being of our dogs and volunteers are our priority so it's important to follow the rules.
Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult please.
On weekdays we have a morning walking schedule, if you would like to join us for weekly walking please contact Barbara on WhatsApp 670 858 366. All of our shelter dogs get to have daily exercise, whether it’s walking with a volunteer, training with one of our staff or running and playing in our patios. We endeavour to ensure that all of our dog enjoy fresh air, stimulation and exercise on a daily basis.
