  • Description


    We are an animal shelter dedicated to taking care of the lovely and less fortunate strays of Cebu.
    We currently take care of 73 dogs and almost 100 cats in two rescue centers about 15-20 minutes apart by motorbike! Some of the rescues have been with us for a long time, the dogs need walking every day and weekly bathing, grooming, etc. and are looking for forever homes.
    We are always in need of help from volunteers - we have 7 staff in Cebu City mostly women and us the founders and managers are stay-in.

    It's never enough hands for the many shelter chores. In return, you'll receive boundless amounts of love and cuddles from the animals.

    We have two bunk beds in one room and a matress on the floor in another room both at our Outpost rescue center near the city centre with 27 dogs and 20+ cats. Our main rescue center is in the hills 15-20 mins away by motor(bike) with currently 46 dogs and 73 cats.
    We are small shelters but very active.

    Our rescue centers got shared bathrooms with our staff and got bucket showers and cold water only.

    Internet you can easily get with a local SIM card (Php 40) and a weekly subscription from Php 70 (Globe telecomm) or 99 (Smart). We do not have Wifi.

    Our outpost rescue center where you will stay is near the city center with shops and a hotel with dorm in walking distance (15-20mins) in case you want to stay-out.
    The main rescue center is located in a small picturesque nature area in the hills at the edge of Cebu.
    Both places are accessible by public transport.
    There's local places to buy food at markets and malls and places to visit in the city.
    Our workers are filipinos mostly ladies and we get regularly international volunteers from all over the world, and from the Philippines.
    We also receive visitors and groups specially at weekends who all love animals, so it's a great place for a good chat!

  • Aide


    Experience with animals / kennels / shelters is useful, but not necessary.
    But in general - we need help feeding the animals, cooking and walking them, cleaning up, grooming, giving them baths and lots of love!

    There are odd jobs that need to be done as well - maintenance of the property, cleaning up cobwebs, painting and repairs and anything else that can be spotted that needs doing.

    We are a non-profit organization and ask half a day help from you for free stay and 3 times food a day. Usually our helpers cook a meal for lunch for everyone. For breakfast and dinner you have to see the staffs timing to cook together or prepare a meal yourself. We provide food like vegetables, pasta, bread, spread, oats, fruits, etc.

    The animals need feeding and care 7 days a week and we work every day. If you like to head out for sightseeing for a day you can help a full day and take a full day off so that's not a problem.

    If there are several volunteers at the time you need to coordinate with each other. If only one volunteer is available we need to cover at least 8am to 10am to help our caretaker!

    We're asking the volunteers to clean the room before they depart and wash the bedsheets not to burden our staff, thanks for understanding!

    There are scooter motorbikes for rent not far away if you like to have a transport.
