We are an animal rescue shelter in Crete, Greece, we have more than 200 dogs that we care for. Our beautiful dogs have been given a second chance at life, we offer our dogs a safe, caring home , taken from troubled homes and off the streets. I am one man that has dedicated my life to rescuing these dogs and improving the welfare of animals in Crete. We are a donation ‘'not for profit organization only'’ and we are totally supported by donations from all over the world.

Ideas and skills are very much encouraged. Skills can be in construction, gardening, growing vegetables, picking olives, animal welfare, playing, walking and spending time with the dogs, any social media skills, building work, building vegetable garden beds.
We need help to manage the day to day tasks around the shelter, take care of our dogs , perform general maintenance on the property and enclosures, and assist with general house keeping activities and cleaning the shelter. We are also looking to improve the shelters’ infrastructure and make our shelter run as sustainably as possible. We ask for your every day help in exchange for accommodation and meals . Plus cook the meals! (we offer everything you will need for basic meals, for any further special requests on meals, you can provide them yourself).
We would like you to keep in mind that there is no regular schedule. Caring for our dogs is time-consuming and unpredictable. Daily tasks will depend on the weather as well as the needs of the dogs. Keep in mind that they need to be fed at least once a day ,watered twice a day, and their living areas must also be cleaned at least every 24-hours (cleaning up after dogs involves removing dog poop from their living area).
As far as it concerns the general maintenance ,it includes tasks such as mending fences , maintaining dog enclosures , building new dogs houses. Sometimes the dogs will destroy their enclosures in an attempt to escape so we have to regularly ensure that they are safe and not able to escape or injure themselves on damaged materials. (This is something that may happen at any time during the day/night, mostly early in the morning) It will be good if you stay alert and help with that!

We have a small house set up which accommodates up to four people, it has a kitchen and bathroom. You will be sleeping in a shared room with 4 beds . Power at the moment is through a solar panel. With time the shelters infrastructure will improve. Currently we are building a second volunteer accomodation which already has a toilet and a queensized bed and is already used by volunteers. Wipe and mop regularly while maintaining a clean and healthy indoor environment.
