Volunteer with dogs and cats in Barcelona

Pays d’action: Espagne, Europe
Type d’activité: Missions avec animaux et vétérinaires
Volunteer in beautiful Barcelona and help to care for and rehome rescued dogs and cats. This is a great opportunity to not only live in one of the world's most celebrated cities, but to also make a difference to vulnerable animals.

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

There are many dogs and cats in Barcelona that do not have loving homes. It is against the law to euthanise animals in the region of Catalonia, which has resulted in a real problem with homeless and stray animals. The problem arises when owners die, when they can no longer afford their pets, and puppies and kittens are abandoned on on the streets. These poor creatures are taken in by shelters, but they are now bursting at the seams.

Your volunteering role
The ultimate aim is to rehome the dogs and cats. This takes a lot of work from volunteers, and you can help with this. Volunteers help out for 3 - 4 hours each morning. This involves feeding the animals, cleaning their enclosures, playing with them and helping with their basic care.

Free time
The afternoons are free for you to fill as you please - Barcelona is an incredible city, so you will find it hard to be bored! Why not visit the beach, see the Sagrada Familia Cathedral (designed by Gaudi and under construction since 1882!) and take a stroll in the serene Park Guell. There is a great buzz at Las Ramblas, good shopping, amazing restaurants and lovely bars to explore too. An alternative tour of the city is included - led by someone who formerly lived on the streets.
