This project supports the welfare and protection of animals at local shelters. As the law in Barcelona protects every abandoned animal, local shelters play an important role in managing colonies of stray cats, in protection dogs and cats in a shelter and in promoting their adoption as well as raising awareness for animal abandonment. In the long-term, these shelters aim to reintegrate and re-educate the dogs and cats and to find a suitable family for them as well as to reduce future abandonment rates. Due to the law and a large number of animals that need 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: cleaning the spaces, assisting with feeding, providing companionship by playing and socializing with the animals. Walking and playing with the animals are very important activities as it allows them to leave the tiny cage in which they have to live most part of the day. Notice that all dogs in the shelters are fully vaccinated. Depending on your skills and length of stay, you may have the opportunity to assist with minor medical treatment, as well as on building fences, campaigns to raise awareness, social media and photography to help promote the shelters.

Typical day

After the initial orientation day, you will have a morning, afternoon or evening shift at your placement and will work for approximately 3 to 5 hours per day. Please note that start times and daily workload depends on the project that you are participating on.
