Pet shelters play an important role in Croatia, helping to rescue a high number of cats and dogs that are abandoned by their families for a number of reasons. Animal shelters are often overcrowded, and volunteers play an important role in giving time and love to animals, promoting their health and wellbeing and giving them the best chance of being adopted.
As a volunteer you’ll help with all manner of cleaning, feeding and playing with the dogs. Playing with the animals each day is considered a key part of your role, as it helps them to both get along with people and stay active. You can also help to develop online profiles for the animals, recording videos and building an ID book to help promote their adoption.
This is an ideal project for those who want to volunteer with animals. You’ll be helping to give these dogs a better future, and can supplement your time by improving the shelter itself and by raising community awareness about animal abandonment.
This project is well suited to those passionate about animals and animal rights. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about animal welfare in a different country while being part of a team that shares the same passion as you. All animals housed in the shelter are fully vaccinated.Apply now
