  • Help


    We are looking for a person to help us in day to day life in the shelter for homeless animals. The work includes cleaning, taking group of dogs for a field, playing with them, sometimes painting and fixing broken stuff etc. There is always something which can be your main task during the day - taking care of dogs in hospital, helping during vet visits, taking pictures for dogs advertising, learning them how to walk on leash and so on. We start the day at 6 am but you can come later as we work till 6pm at least :) It would be great if the person who will come, knows little bit about animals behaving and is definitely NOT afraid of dogs. In ou shelter dofs lives in group, up to 20 in one, so you need to be confident while going inside.

  • Accommodation


    You will have a room in a shelter, upstairs, shared with one of the managers staying in the shelter that time and one or two doggies. The room is very simple and you need to be aware that you life IN the shelter, so it is quite noisy during the day and it starts since early morning. Wireless internet is available, the simple kitchen as well. We will provide the food, but we have not a lot of possibilities to cook there, so food is going to be simple.
