Seul voyageur
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 plays an important role in managing colonies of stray cats, in protecting dogs and cats at 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 an 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 the length of your stay, you may have the opportunity to become more involved in the shelter's long-term goals by creating a more familiar and welcoming space, such as setting up quiet areas where everyone can visit and spend time with the dogs and cats and share love and affection.

Activités de Loisir

Amidst the Kozjak and Mosor mountains and surrounded by the Adriatic Sea, just a few hours away from one of the other European capitals, the small peninsula where Split is located has a lot to offer to every visitor and traveler.

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 it has a rich historical heritage full of monuments classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on the other it is 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 its charming ancient towns and villages, beautiful beaches and more than a thousand islands, its history has produced a very rich cultural diversity, shaped by Roman and Turkish, that is, 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 warm. With its palace just on the seaside, Split brings a peaceful and fresh atmosphere that invites you to come and stay for a while.
