Volunteering in Greece

Support Dog Shelter in Greece

Combine your passion for animals and desire to give back to society by improving the unfortunate situation of abandoned street animals in Greece. During this volunteer program, you can help look for a new safe and beautiful home for stray dogs.
The program is managed by a local in Greece at the beautiful Crete Island, that aims to improve the situation of the animals living on the streets. Due to the amount of work that it takes to keep the program running, the help provided by volunteers is always greatly appreciated. Animals are only mediated when the family have the correct surrounding for the dog.
