The program

The shelter, situated in a village in the suburbs of the city of Tirana, was set up to rescue the sick, injured and endangered animals of Tirana and the wider region. The shelter provides these animals with safe haven - a loving and caring home – and it is the only animal shelter in the entire region!  Sadly, there are horrifying incidents every day where injured, sick, or mistreated animals require rescue and immediate care. The shelter takes care of these animals. There are currently approximately 200 animals at this centre, and as it receives no government support, it relies heavily on donations from kind-hearted individuals and the assistance of international volunteers to stay in operation.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide a safe place for mistreated animals  
  • Provide medical attention and rehabilitation to animals who have been injured   
  • Provide a home for animals without one and who would suffer otherwise
  • Provide an opportunity for cross-cultural exchange between volunteers and locals

How you can help

This volunteer program provides essential support to a large number of animals in need of care and attention. Volunteers will gain great experience caring for animals, while also experiencing volunteering and all the amazing benefits of traveling to another country. Due to the large number of animals accommodated in this facility the cats stay in the main facility, which doubles as a veterinary clinic, and have access to an outdoor enclosure. Meanwhile the dogs are housed outside in kennels. The Animal Shelter is looking desperately for assistance from international volunteers, and welcomes all those willing to help out with a variety of activities including: cleaning, feeding, maintenance, and caring for the animals. Volunteer vets are welcomed to help with the injured or sick animals. Volunteers not only play a major role in caring for the animals, but in keeping the operation sustainable and able to continue to operate and save these wonderful creatures.

Volunteers can expect to participate in a number of tasks, including but not limited to:

  • Feeding the animals
  • Cleaning the animal shelters
  • Maintenance work
  • Playing with the animals
  • Brushing the animals

Afhaal aan de luchthaven op Tirana International Airport

Volunteers are met on arrival into Tirana and taken to the Volunteer House to meet with the hosts and settle in to the new environment. An orientation session will take place, normally on the Monday, which covers the local area, public transport, amenities, customs, rules and recommendations and, of course, what to expect from your volunteering experience.  This provides a great opportunity to get to know your hosts and ask any last questions you may have.

  • Arrival/Departure Airport: Tirana International Airport Nene Tereza, Tirana, Albania (Code: TIA)

Accomodatie

Volunteers on this program are accommodated in a comfortable Volunteer House in central Tirana. Each room accommodates up to 4 with shared bathroom and communal facilities.  The shared rooms are split by gender. The house is equipped with a tidy kitchen and dining area where volunteers can prepare meals and snacks in a homely environment.

All standard amenities are available in the Volunteer House, including hot showers, Western style bathrooms, bed linen, a functional kitchen and Wi-Fi. An Albanian expression sums up the hospitality you can expect during your stay in Tirana - “Buke, kripe dhe zemer” (Bread, Salt and a warm heart).

Makkelijke toegang op de project site
Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten. Eten, tussendoortjes en drankjes zijn bijkomende kosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Tirana International Airport (TIA) in Tirana. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Albanië.
Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Albanië biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Albanië dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Albanië.
