Volunteers are the driving force for much of the work that we undertake, and ensure that we never have to turn away an animal in need. We rely on both seasonal (full-time) and part-time volunteers to support our animal welfare initiatives in both Greece and Germany.

Seasonal Volunteering

You have a heart for animals and some experience in caring for animals? Come and join us for a season of volunteer work with real impact. We are based on the Greek island of Lefkada surrounded by the beautiful turquoise Ionian Sea. The perfect place to spend your summer (or any time of year)! The work will be hands on and you will soon fall in love with all of our little rescues.

Your work will involve many different responsibilities, from helping at the local shelters with animal care, to logistics of picking up new rescues and coordinating vet treatments. All of this whilst working with an international team of animal lovers.

In addition to the above, we are able to assist or provide accommodation based on your individual needs for your entire stay in Lefkada. Our requirements change, and the availability of volunteer spots fluctuate, so if you have questions or would like to learn more feel free to get in touch with us at info@anima-lefkada.de.

Our Part-Time Volunteer Network

For a lot of the work we do for our rescues, we rely on our network of part-time volunteers across Europe to help us complete one off tasks that our full time resources are unable to accomplish on their own. This often includes jobs such as checking prospective homes for suitability to adopt a dog or cat, or helping with construction of new facilities.

If you want to support what we do, but are unable to donate or commit several weeks of your time, consider joining our part-time volunteer network. As a member of our network, you can invest as little or as much time as you are able to, help us with local initiatives or any other projects we might be running.

At the moment, the best way to take part is to email us at info@anima-lefkada.de to find out how you might be able to help. We are always happy to hear from someone who wants to get involved, so please don't hesitate to say hi!
