  • Description


    We are an organisation non-profit for dog welfare in Mauritius. Our mission is to help injured dogs all around Island to give them a better life and rights. There are approximately 80'000 stray dogs in Mauritius, we are willing to do mass sterilization campaign with a catch neuter and release program.

    Our shelter with around 80 dogs are all rescued from the streets with severe injuries, sick or too young to live by their own. We treat them and try to find the perfect family for each of them ! We are based in a peaceful place around trees, river and nature in the south west. There are lots to see around and also great trekking or water sport as Kite surf :)

    About us : My name is Cindy I am the founder of the shelter and I live with the dogs at the shelter, I am also working as pet taxi around the Island. My sister Malika who is the president of the organisation, works as pet taxi and is a great yoga teacher, she will give you a place to stay (5min from the shelter). We are working together to make change happens here. Anne et Miguel are the permanent workers at shelter, they are 2 beautiful persons and knows the dogs perfectly.

    We will be happy to tell you more about us and feel free to ask for our website

    South West of Mauritius is well known for his beautiful small villages and beaches. There are also lots of trekking over there and the best place to learn (or do) KiteSurfing (Miguel is also a instructor). It's an authentique place !
    Even if we are not born mauritian, we will be more than happy to make you discover the real mauritian life. With so much culture and incredible food.

  • Help


    Most of the help is the cleaning part (you need to be someone who is not afraid of poop) cleaning the kennels and beds. The fun part will be walking the dogs, giving them bath and also lots of cuddles. Of course you need to be an animal lover who won't be afraid of entering a 20 dog park. We ask you to come to shelter on morning.

    The more important tasks will be :

    -Feeding morning.
    -Poop picking all areas where dogs are.
    -Cleaning and disinfecting dog areas.
    -Changing their blankets in their beds when needed.
    -Having moment at the beach with Disabled dogs for their swim and rehab.
    -Walking dogs.
    -Take lots of photos and videos so we can promote our dogs for adoption.

    You will also participate at rescue and see how it goes physical and mental, this is such a life experience, sometimes really hard and sometimes so amazing....
