In this program, you as an animal passionate and a supporter of animal rights, will have the opportunity to join a team that shares the same passion as you. This program supports the welfare and protection of dogs and cats at the local shelter. As the law in Croatia protects every abandoned animal, this place play an important role in managing colonies of stray cats, in protecting dogs and cats in the shelter and in promoting their adoption as well as raising awareness for animal abandonment. In a long-term, this shelter aims: to bring a new life for these animals, promoting their happiness and wellbeing; to find a suitable family for them; as well as to reduce future abandonment rates. Due to the law and large number of animals that need a shelter, these spaces are crowded, and the volunteer work is crucial to support their mission and improve animals’ conditions.

As a volunteer, your tasks will vary and can include: assisting with bathing and brushing the dogs, providing companionship by playing, walking and socializing with the animals; helping the team measuring the animals, taking photos and doing small videos to elaborate a ID book for each animal; taking care of the green spaces inside the shelter; and creating small construction projects (i.e. building dog runs and creating fences). Notice that all animals housed in the shelter are fully vaccinated. Playing with the animals is very important as it allow them to get along with people, lose their traumas and fears, and above all provide them quality time out of their daily space which is often the cages.

Depending on your skills and length of stay, you may have the opportunity to get more engaged with the long-term goals of the shelter regarding to create a more familiar and welcoming space, for example creating chilling spaces where everyone can visit the dogs and cats and enjoy while are spending time with them, sharing love and affection.

Activités de Loisir

Situated in the middle of Kozjak and Mosor mountains and surrounded by the Adriatic Sea, just a few hours from any of the other European capitals, the small peninsula where Split is located has a lot to offer to every visitor and traveller.

Croatia, as a Balkan nation is a must stop country for anyone who chooses to visit eastern Europe in a meaningful way. On the one hand a rich historical heritage full of monuments classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on the other a country that is still recovering from a political war, in the group of countries with the highest number of people living below the poverty line.

With charming old cities and towns, gorgeous beaches and more than thousand islands, its history has resulted in a very rich cultural diversity which was brought from Roman and Turkish, so Mediterranean and eastern European influences. These historical heritages mark the different regions of Croatia. Between Istria, Dalmatia and the center of Croatia, the gastronomy, lifestyle and accents can change a lot, making the country very diverse and interesting. Split, the second biggest city, has a specific Mediterranean influence that makes it especially welcoming, cosy and warmer. With its palace just on the seaside, Split brings a peaceful and fresh atmosphere that invites you to come and stay for a while.
