Come and learn how to take care of dogs in a team of Greek and international volunteers in Agios Mamas

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionDear Hippohelpers
    I am Rebecca, the last years i was running a dogs pension at the beginning but as there are so many stray dogs in Greece now i am running a shelter which is a lot of work. Especially for one person it is very difficult to take care of so many animals.Due to these circumstances your help would be very appreciated. I speak Greek, English and German.
  • LocationGreece

  • Work
  • Type of work Animal care
  • Hours per day Five hours every day, five days every week.
  • Work requirements: Your most important work will be taking care of the dogs, feeding them, do cleaning work of the area and especially play with them as they are in desperate need for love.
    It a lot of works to take care of so many life
    The people who want to come have to really love animals because its not always easy and cool life ,but its a really good feeling to have the possibility to help them.
    There is a lot of clean work in a shelter (clean the cage, the box to send the dog)
    It would be better if the volounteer can stay for a long time but obviously every kind of help is welcome
    If someone want to stay one year its really really good.
    If you want during the month of September and October you can help also at the olive harvest .
