The Experience

We need help to walk, train, feed and clean up after the animals. Some animals have just come in off the street and need one to one training. Some need physio, some need medicating, some just need attention and love. The daily routine includes, walking, cleaning. medicating and feeding the animals. Walks are for at least an hour so you must be strong and fit.

I had a wonderful experience volunteering here it was very enlightening and rewarding. You get to meet and work with some amazing and inspiring people and you get to meet the cutest animals who will love you. The experience is as they say it is, it is a hard and dirty job but it is also rewarding and great experience. I highly recommend this volunteer job or better yet you should adopt an the organization or at least donate.

I Ioved my stay at MAA, it was my first time working with animals and I could in the short time i was here already learn so much! It's really a lot of work, you're gonna get dirty and pick up soo much poo but it pays off, all the love from the animals and knowing you're doing sth Important. I left work each day, tired but so fulfilled. Also it's amazing to be surrounded by so many cool and inspiring people, helping and working together towards the same goal Can't wait to be back! ;)❤️

Wow, where do I start!! I spent 3 weeks volunteering with MAA and it was one of the best experiences of my life. I found the work to be really fair, though definitely a little emotionally challenging at times, but I always left the shelter each day feeling extremely fulfilled. I got to meet so many amazing, inspiring people and I am extremely grateful for the time that I got to spend with them. One of my favourite parts was getting to really immerse myself into the local culture and community, I felt really welcomed right from my very first day and like I was apart of a family <3
