Combine your passion for animals and desire to give back to society by improving the unfortunate situation of abandoned street animals in Greece. During this volunteer program, you can help to look for a new safe and beautiful home for stray dogs.


  • Feeding and walking the animals

  • Live in a beautiful city of Greece and enjoy the beach on free days
  • Get known Greek culture and work in a international team

The program is managed by a local in Greece at the beautiful Crete Island, that aims to improve the situation of the animals living on the streets. Due to the amount of work that it takes to keep the program running, the help provided by volunteers is always greatly appreciated. Animals are only mediated when a family has the correct surrounding for a dog.

Before starting your volunteer work project, you will receive an orientation from our local staff. The local stuff is run by English speaking people. They are very happy to welcome volunteers from all over the world. Usually you will be in the program with other volunteers. The project is about  minutes by bus.
