Activities & Shift

We are an animal welfare organization and we like to use our funds for helping them. We request our volunteers to contribute 70 Euros per week to cover their accommodation so that our funds can help animals. Hope you understand!


Volunteers for any position will be asked to perform their tasks per shifts with a fixed timetable. When the task may need a different schedule, depending on various factors, among which availability of the local staff, special needs of the animals, check-in/out times at the hostel, shops opening times or any other need on the side of the volunteer or of the organization, a new time schedule must be agreed on.
We ask our volunteers to contribute 70 euros/week. We are a non-profit organization and we must use our funds to feed our 150 animals every day and to pay the salaries of our 14 local employees. We thank you for your understanding.
The rules of the house are published on our portal for volunteers, together with any other useful info, and will be made available in due time.
